Review

Ford Kuga is a compact crossover SUV based on the C1 platform, which also contributed to the foundation of the Ford Focus and C-Max. Sales for the model started in 2008 but was actually first seen at the 2006 Paris Motor Show as the dramatic Ford iosis X Concept. It features Ford's Kinetic Design and has a sporty and dynamic look that successfully applies to its crossover style.

Design

As Ford's current line-up, Kuga incorporates the Kinetic Design with bold upper and lower trapezoid grilles and swept-back headlamps. Circular fog lamps placed on both sides of the lower grille were added and the bonnet features power blisters. Bold graphics and wheelarches are used with standard 17-inch wheels. Door mirrors integrate side indicators and a small roof-mounted spoiler and optional panoramic glass roof are among premium features that enhance Kuga's modern design.

In the interior Kuga has a clean design of the instrument panel and a high seating position which contributes to a sense of comfort and space. Capable of seating uo to five adults, Kuga offers 1008mm of headroom and 1422mm of shoulder width for the driver and front seat passenger.
