In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Ford Kuga. We will examine the details about the Ford Kuga under three main categories such as; The Features of the Ford Kuga, The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Kuga and Does It Suit You? These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the Ford Kuga. It is a Compact SUV (Sporty Utility Vehicle), which has been manufacturing by the American automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Company since 2008. The first and original design was built on the C1 Platform, the basis of many models produced at that time. The first presentation was made at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and attracted considerable attention. Kuga, which has a history of three generations, is still actively producing by the Ford Motor Company.
The Features of the Ford Kuga
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Ford Kuga. We can start with the exterior design of the Ford Kuga. The new generation Kuga was built on Ford's C2 Platform and introduced in April 2019. It stands out with its striking design features. First, serious changes have been made in the body structure. Thanks to advancing technology, despite the use of high strength steel, the vehicle is much lighter and more durable. Combining this feature with a streamlined body design creates a highly aerodynamic vehicle. In addition, it is possible to see Ford's next generation radiator grille design at Kuga. This detail makes the vehicle sporty, while at the same time renewed front and rear headlight designs adds style to the vehicle. Also, the sharp body lines on the hood reflect the dynamism of the vehicle. Now, let's take a look to the interior design of the Ford Kuga. When you step into the cabin, you can see the customary high quality of the Ford brand. The design team seems to have successfully combined various elements to create a highly harmonious cabinet design. Blue and black colors are dominant in the cabin design. While most of the console panels are black, lighting systems make a difference with their bright blue color. Finally, we are going to talk about the technological features of the Ford Kuga. Ford Kuga is literally a technology haven. Kuga benefits from the blessings of today's technology and provides many different advantages compared to many standard vehicles. For example; The most advanced hands free technology on the market. Thanks to the updated software, you can now literally speak every instruction. Also, innovative technologies such as Quickclear are also available. Thanks to this feature, the icing problem of your windows in winter is coming to an end. Thanks to the ultra-thin filaments on the wipers, you can now use your wipers to melt the ice in your window. Finally, Kuga's driving dynamics and technologies maximize driving pleasure and safety.
The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Kuga
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Ford Kuga. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That’s why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as; The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Ford Kuga has got three standard engine varieties such as; 1.5, 1.5 TDCi and 2.0 TDCi. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is; 1.5 TDCi. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1499 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 120 HP and 3500 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 1.5 TDCi has got a 4,8lt/100km (which refers to 59 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption rate in Urban usage. However, this MPG Performance decreasing to 4,2lt/100km (which refers to 67 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as; Highways or Long Distance Trip. When we combine these two MPG data, we get a 4,4lt/100km (which refers to 64 MPG in the UK) average consumption rate. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is; 1.5 EcoBoost. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1498 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 182 Horsepower and 6000 RPM Torque. 1.5 has got a 9,4lt/100km (which refers to 30 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG Rate decreasing to 6,3lt/100km (which refers to 45 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 7,5lt/100km (which refers to 38 MPG in the UK) average MPG data.
Does It Suit You?
The new generation Ford Kuga will make you the center of attention with its impressive design! In addition, its advanced technologies do not even exist in many vehicles on the market. Therefore, it will show you the true meaning of comfort with its features. Finally, it is not the most economical vehicle in its class, but it has got an average fuel consumption. This is not a reason to feel negative about the Kuga. On the contrary, Kuga is a car to fall in love with.
