Ford has announced the prices and specs for its all-new Ford Kuga, which arrives in showrooms in March 2020.
The third-generation version of the Ford Kuga, which is one of Ford’s best-selling models behind the Focus and Kuga, is also the second most popular crossover after the Nissan Qashqai.
While prices will start from £23,995 for the entry-level Zetec model, that grade will not be available from launch. Instead from launch, prices will start from £28,145 for the Titanium First Edition. This comes as standard with adaptive cruise control, a B&O sound system and a reversing camera.
Upgrading to the ST-Line versions adds a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a sporty interior and exterior, while the current flagship ST-Line X variant adds a handsfree electric boot, a panoramic roof and 19-inch alloy wheels. From launch, these are just available in ‘First Edition’ guise, being priced from £31,845.
Ford is also offering its first passenger car plug-in hybrid with the Kuga, too – a 2.5-litre petrol engine paired to an electric motor and a 14.4kWh battery pack, which allows for a claimed 35 miles of electric range. Ford is also promising a fuel economy figure of 201.1mpg, though be aware that this is based on the old testing cycle. This is also being identically priced to the 187bhp 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine – available from £33,995.
Lisa Brankin, passenger vehicle director, Ford of Britain, said: “The all-new Ford Kuga is our first passenger vehicle to offer plug-in hybrid technology, alongside a full line-up of other options to give our customers a comprehensive engine choice.
“Matched with a contemporary design, advanced technology, driver assistance and safety features, the all-new Kuga represents the best in one package.”
The announcement follows yesterday’s announcement from safety body Euro NCAP that the new Kuga secured a five-star safety rating.
