For used Ford Kuga cars, choose Arnold Clark

Ford has sold over a million Kugas since it was first released in 2008. It remains the marque’s best-selling SUV in Europe, and is ever popular among families thanks to its stylish, spacious design. Designed to be an all-rounder, it can tow a caravan, navigate country lanes with ease and keep everyone comfortable on long drives. Newer versions are based on the same platform as the Ford Focus, but it has a higher ride height for a commanding view of the road and more clearance on uneven lanes. 

Competing with the Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai and Peugeot 5008, the Kuga is an accessible entry-level vehicle in the SUV class. Its hybrid versions also complete with the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. For a more premium driving experience, look out for the Titanium Edition trim to add more tech to the SUV, an ST Line for sporty touches, or select a Vignale with its luxurious finishes for driving comfort and sophisticated style.


Ford Kuga updates and facelifts

Ford’s Kuga is now in its third generation. It was first released in 2008 and received a facelift in 2010, which introduced a new engine lineup and some exterior design tweaks, including a more aggressive grille design. The Mk2 was released in 2012. It swapped the 1.6-litre petrol engine for a 1.5-litre EcoBoost powertrain, introduced a new 1.5-litre entry-level diesel unit and offered more boot space (an increase of 46 litres over the Mk1 with the seats up) and a refreshed design. In 2016, ST-Line and Vignale trims joined the range. This second generation had a facelift in 2017, which brought a new look for the front and rear, an all-wheel drive option, and safety tech like Cross Traffic Alert and Active City Stop. The 1.5-litre diesel engine was also made more efficient.

In 2020, Ford began selling the third-generation Kuga. It shares the C2 platform with the Ford Focus, is 90kg lighter than previous versions. A year later, Ford removed the Kuga diesel options.

The Kuga was Ford’s first hybrid in their range. If you select one of the third-generation models, you’ll have a choice of a mild-, full- or plug-in hybrid, along with a petrol only option. These versions promise fuel economy and help the Kuga acceleration and efficiency.


Practicality and style of the car

Newer Mk2 variants of the Ford Kuga are especially generous in space, thanks to its 4,626mm length, 1,690mm height and 1,882mm width. With its tall driving position, it has an exceptional view of the road, and drivers have lots of adjustment for the seat and steering wheel to get comfortable.

In the boot, you have 412 litres to fill. This can expand to 526 litres by moving the seats forward. When you don’t need the boot space, sliding the seats back gives passengers more room to relax. The rear seats fold in a 60:40 split, and the wheel arches don’t encroach on the boot, creating a flat rectangular shape. With the rear seats folded to a near flat position, the boot offers 1,534 litres, and there is no lip, which makes it easy to load heavier items. Look for trims above Zetec to get an electric tailgate. 

It can tow between 1,200kg and 2,100kg, making it a practical choice for caravan trips or towing a trailer.


Running costs

In terms of insurance, the Ford Kuga falls into groups 10 to 22, which is a slightly lower range than the Kia Sportage and Nissan Qashqai. The models with larger engines tend to be at the upper end of the insurance groups.

Road tax is usually £180, but models that were originally priced over £40,000 carry an additional £390 a year for the first five years of ownership. A used version may only carry this rate for a short time or not at all. These rates are similar to the Nissan Qashqai and Kia Sportage.

 
 

How a used Ford Kuga drives

Before 2020, the Ford Kuga offered a range of petrol and diesel engines, but it now comes with a petrol option and a range of hybrids. Ford’s official figures state that the Kuga ranges between 40.9mpg and 282.5mpg for its fuel economy.

The entry-level Kuga has a 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol unit producing 148bhp and 240Nm of torque. Stepping up to the 2.5-litre hybrids brings you more options. It’s available as a mild hybrid (MHEV), a full hybrid (FHEV) and a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The difference between the mild- and full-hybrid is battery size. They both recoup power during braking and store it in the battery for an extra boost, but the mild hybrid has a 48-volt battery while the full hybrid has a 1.1kWh battery. The larger battery size makes a more noticeable difference to fuel economy.

The plug-in hybrid is slightly different. Its 14.4kWh battery allows it to drive on electric only mode for up to 39 miles. This battery is paired with a 2.5-litre petrol engine to produce 222bhp, and like the others, it reaches 0-62mph in under ten seconds.

Acceleration from 0-62mph is similar across the range at just under ten seconds. Fuel efficiency does differ though. The 1.5-litre EcoBoost returns between 30.7mpg and 35.7mpg, the full hybrid returns between 51.4mpg and 52.3mpg, and the plug-in hybrid returns 201.8mpg. It’s also worth nothing that the petrol has a six-speed manual transmission, while the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models use an automatic gearbox.

Another key feature of the Ford Kuga is driving modes. Switch between eco, sporty and off-road capabilities to get the right driving experience for the terrain.

If you are looking at earlier versions of the Kuga, the Mk2 offers turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engines.

Features you can expect in a Ford Kuga

Interior

Inside, the Ford Kuga is similar to the Focus. It is built to be robust, with some premium finishings for an upmarket feel. As standard, newer models come with leather trimming on the steering wheel and gear lever as well as privacy glass. If you would like leather seats, look out for the Vignale trim. The ST-Line X also has a panoramic roof to fill the cabin with natural light. This feature is optional on most trims so you may find others with this addition. Both the ST-Line X and Vignale trims have heated seats, and the Vignale also has a heated steering wheel.

There are plenty of storage cubbies around the cabin. The central armrest has a deep storage bin and a 12V socket. There is a smaller cubby in the centre console leaves room for the essentials you want close at hand. Door pockets give passengers somewhere to hold essentials too. In the rear, there is plenty of room for three adults and you can recline the rear seats for more comfort.

In terms of technology, all later models have an eight-inch touchscreen with sat nav as standard. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity allow you to use your preferred map and music apps. In the Titanium Edition and upwards, you’ll find a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, which includes an update of battery charge for the plug-in hybrid version. You can customise this display to show the information you want to see. This trim also has dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. Vignale versions have head-up display too.

 

Technology

All Ford Kugas come with front and rear parking sensors to help you guide this large SUV into spaces. Every trim above Zetec also has a rear-view camera to help avoid any scrapes. Newer models with automatic transmission have Active Park Assist, which will do the hard work of driving into a parallel space for you.

A raft of other tools help take the pressure off driving. Cruise control is standard, and it’s adaptive on models with a Driver’s Assistance pack, meaning it will automatically slow when you are getting close to the car in front. Lane keep assist and automatic emergency braking are both standard, which both use sensors to detect hazards and correct the car’s position on the road for you. For blind spot monitoring and traffic sign recognition, look for models with the Driver’s Assistance Pack.

Some Kuga’s have LED headlights with adaptive technology for sharper vision at night that won’t dazzle oncoming drivers.

 

Safety

With a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, you can be confident that the Ford Kuga will keep all occupants protected. The adult occupancy score is 92% and the child occupancy score is 86%. This is higher than the Peugeot 5008’s 86% for adults and 85% for children. It is also higher than the Kia Sportage’s 87% adult score while matching its child occupant score. It has ten airbags throughout the cabin for protection of all occupants. ISOFIX points make it a safe choice for families with young children.

The automatic emergency braking will help you avoid collisions, and it’s set to detect pedestrians and cyclists as well as other vehicles.

 

Trims available on the Ford Kuga

There are lots of Kuga trims to choose from: Zetec, titanium, Titanium-Sport, Titanium X, Titanium X Sport, ST line, ST line X and Vignale.


Ford Kuga Zetec

The Zetec is the entry-level trim in the Kuga line and provides a long list of features that you might expect to see from a higher range model. These include an 8-inch touch screen which gives access to the infotainment system. The Zetec includes as standard: sav nav, Bluetooth, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as well as wireless charging, sport seats, luxurious leather steering wheel and gear stick, parking sensors, air conditioning, 17-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels, powered folding mirrors, and a heated windscreen just to name a few!


Ford Kuga Titanium

There are several notable differences between the Zetec and the Titanium trim. The Titanium has either ten-spoke, 17-inch alloys and the same ebony vector cloth that is present in Zetec. However, the Titanium comes with a partial leather trim interior too. It has the upgraded LED headlights as well as providing Ford’s ambient interior lighting system and climate control. Rain-sensing windscreen wipers and automatic high beams are a couple of the additional features you can enjoy with the Titanium.


Ford Kuga Titanium Sport

Building on the features of the Titanium and the Zetec, the Titanium Sport comes with larger 18-inch, 2x5 spoke alloy wheels and a large rear spoiler which provide the Sport with less drag to improve efficiency. The Sport also comes with the addition of body-coloured skirts, a contrasting lower centre silver skid plate and painted grille with chrome bar. Active park assist adds to the already feature-rich functionality of the onboard display unit.


Ford Kuga Titanium X

The Titanium X is the next step up from the Sport and comes equipped with the same great features but with the addition of Torino leather trim and heated front seats and a power-opening panorama roof. The X utilises ‘Quickclear’ heated windscreen and washer jets to help in those winter months. The halogen day lights provided with the Zetec and Sport are upgraded to LED day running lights, as are the headlights which are bi-xenon on the X.


Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport

At the top of the Kuga line in 2015, the X Sport offered a lot of luxurious functionality with contemporaries such as the Nissan Qashqai, Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. With a full-body coloured body kit, the X Sport brings together the body styling of the X but with 19-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels and the large spoiler featured on the Sport.


Ford Kuga ST-Line

The ST-Line replaces the Sport as the first of the sportier-tuned options on the more recent Kuga models. It comes with Sensico sports seats and a ten-way powered adjustable driver’s seat to allow for that perfect driving position. Along with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, red brake calipers that are visible through the 18-inch alloys, and black roof rails, the ST-Line is a great sporter option for those with the budget.


Ford Kuga ST-Line X

The ST-line X is another step up, providing even more features on top of the sporty styling of the standard ST-Line. Headed seats and steering wheel provide a new level of luxury from the previous trim level as well as larger 19-inch alloy wheels. As with the Titanium Sport X of the previous generation, the ST-line X offers a combination of sport and luxury.


Ford Kuga Vignale

The Vignale, the current top-level trim, offers the driver a luxurious number of features and details not available on the lower-level trims. These include a chrome bumper trim, dual-zone air-conditioning, active noise cancelling and a ten-speaker Bang and Olsen stereo to name a few.
