Ford has announced the prices and specs for its new Puma crossover, which will be offered from launch with a series of high-spec trim levels.
Ford unveiled the Puma in June as the brand’s innovative new small crossover, with the model reviving a nameplate not seen since the early 2000s. Previously the Puma was a small Fiesta-based coupe.
But times have changed, and no longer do buyers want cars like that – instead they want crossovers, hence the reborn Puma you see here. It is the first Ford passenger car to be offered with mild-hybrid technology, while it also comes with the latest safety technology. It’s also said to be the most practical car in its class for passenger and boot space.
The new Puma range will start from £20,845, and will be offered in two specs initially – Titanium and ST-Line X. First Editions are available of each, too, which will be available to order before the rest of the line-up.
Standard kit includes luxurious equipment such as massaging front seats and wireless smartphone charging, with the Titanium First Edition (available from £22,295) adding adaptive cruise control, a reversing camera, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
ST-Line X versions add sportier styling, sports suspension, a large digital instrument cluster and LED headlights. Meanwhile ST-Line X First Editions bring an electric tailgate, 18-inch alloy wheels and a 10-speaker B&O sound system.See Available Ford deals
Prices rise to £27,345 for the range-topping ST-Line X First Edition Plus grade, which adds a panoramic sunroof and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Initially, the Puma will be offered with the option of two mild-hybrid powertrains featuring the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, producing either 123bhp or 153bhp. These units will be added to the Fiesta and Focus in 2020.
Order books the First Edition versions will open in December for January 2020 delivery, with the rest of the range being available to order at the start of next year.
