all-new Kuga will be available from £20,895 – over £1,000 less than
today’s model. Like its predecessor, the all-new Ford Kuga will feature
a three-series line-up in the UK – Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X.
All like-for-like models are lower in
price with significant additional standard specification. The UK’s
best-selling 2.0-litre TDCi 163PS model, at £25,545, is £355 less than
the outgoing model, with new standard equipment including fold-flat

hands-free tailgate; class-leading handling with Ford’s new global
intelligent all-wheel drive system and enhanced Torque Vectoring
The all-new Ford Kuga offers a
choice of 150PS and 180PS 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engines, and 140PS
and 163PS 2.0-litre TDCi Duratorq
diesel engines. AWD diesel models are available with Ford’s
PowerShift transmission; and FWD diesel models now feature CO2
emissions from just 139g/km.
A range of driver assistance
technologies including the parallel parking aid Active Park Assist, and
sensor-based Blind Spot Information System, which indicates with a
warning light in the door mirror that a potential hazard is in the
driver’s blind spot, will also be available.
The smart Kuga AWD system continually
assesses road conditions, adjusting the AWD torque split to give the
driver the best blend of handling and traction. Driving dynamics and
cornering control are refined by the introduction of the Torque
Vectoring Control system first made available on the new Focus.
All-new Kuga orders can be placed now
with vehicles expected to arrive in UK dealerships in early 2013. Full
