Powerful, refined and more stylish, both inside and out, we’re proud to reveal the Ford Kuga, our smartest SUV yet. The new Ford Kuga has excellent stowage capacity and boasts the very latest on-demand technology to keep your dream of off-road adventure alive.
An Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system adapts to terrain and conditions in an instant, Active City Stop automatically applies the brakes at low speed to prevent a collision and Ford SYNC reads out text messages and gives you hands-free control of your music, calls and much more. We’re also proud to be the first to introduce an innovative hands-free tailgate to one of our SUVs. It’s so easy to operate, even with your hands full, simply wave your foot under the bumper and the tailgate will open and close.
Packed full of many more innovative features, the Kuga takes SUV (Smart Utility Vehicle) styling and technology to a whole new level.
Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
A retractable tow bar: there when you need it
Tow bars are usually fixed, so they permanently stick out from the back of a vehicle. But the Kuga’s optional electrically releasable tow bar makes it easy to let the tow bar tuck away behind the bumper when not in use.
A hands-free tailgate for effortless opening and closing
If you’ve got your hands full, and the Kuga senses the proximity of your KeyFree key fob, all you have to do is wave your foot under the rear bumper and the tailgate will automatically open or close.
