Ford Kuga Overview
Striking, ultra-contemporary design and styling, inside and out. Uncompromising performance and unrelenting efficiency. An impressive list of smart features, systems and technologies. And all the practicality, flexibility and utility you could possibly want.
If you see opportunities where others see obstacles, you’ll see the infinite possibilities presented by the new Ford Kuga.
Technology you can control with your voice
Ford SYNC 3 enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music, navigation system with intuitive voice commands, or an 8” colour touchscreen.
You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”, or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book places to eat, along with hotels.
Wi-Fi connectivity is available via hotspots, with a USB modem. And Ford Emergency Assistance can help call the Emergency Services in the event of an accident.
Stress-free parking and pulling out
Using a combination of different technologies, Active Park Assist does more than automatically steer you into parking spots. With Park Out Assist, it helps you pull out of them, too.
The Parallel and Perpendicular Parking system locates a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake (following clear, simple, on-screen instructions and audible signals).
To avoid low speed collisions, the Ford Kuga brakes for you
Innovative Active City Stop helps to avoid or mitigate a collision in slow-moving traffic or at speeds under 30 mph (50 km/h). If the system detects the car in front has unexpectedly stopped, it automatically applies the brakes.
Confidence in changeable conditions
An available intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is intelligent, so it’s able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And by providing ‘torque on demand’, the system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency for safe, effortless driving.
A camera that’s always looking ahead
A small forward facing camera, located behind the inside rear-view mirror, provides a view looking down the road and in front of the vehicle. This enables the system to identify road signs, lane makings, and light sources from other vehicles. The Forward Camera System supports the following technologies: Lane Keeping Aid, Driver Alert, Auto High Beam and Traffic Sign Recognition.
More performance, more efficiency
The new Kuga is powered by the 1.5L EcoBoost petrol engine, available with 2 different power outputs: 150PS and 182PS. The engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6L engine, but achieves a combined fuel consumption of 6.2 l/100 km* with emissions of just 143 g/km* of CO2. Direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing combine to deliver performance that’s smooth, responsive and rewarding.
*Ford test figures (front wheel drive with manual transmission, 150PS version).
A range of diesel options
Prefer diesel? Then choose from a 1.5L TDCi or 2.0L TDCi. Both incorporate the latest engine technology to improve power, torque and economy, while lowering emissions. The 1.5L TDCi provides a power output of 120 PS, whilst the 2.0L TDCi delivers 150 PS or an even more potent 180 PS.

A high quality audio system comes as standard with Ford SYNC 3 and delivers exceptional clarity of sound throughout the vehicle. An optional premium Sony system, with DAB radio, provides a heightened listening experience.
Colours to match your mood
Kuga’s ambient lighting casts a gentle glow on the centre console, door pockets, door release handles and front footwells. Offering seven different accent colours, ranging from warm red to cool blue, you can pick a tone for each day of the week.
To help avoid low speed collisions, the new Kuga brakes for you
Collisions in stop-start, slow moving traffic happen all-too frequently: Active City Stop is an advanced technology designed to help you avoid or reduce the severity of them. If the system detects the car in front has unexpectedly stopped, and you’re travelling at a speed of under 30 mph / 50 km/h, it automatically applies the brakes.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance: can call for help even if you can’t
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
*Ford Emergency Assistance operates in over 40 European countries. This feature works when paired with a compatible connected mobile phone that is with you when an airbag is deployed (excludes knee airbags) or a sensor that registers a crash deactivates the fuel pump. Text function and Emergency Assistance not supported by all European languages.
Helping to keep children safe
The new Ford Kuga is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. And it comes with rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.

One look at the new Kuga and you can’t help but feel unstoppable.
And no wonder. This is a vehicle built to help you live out your sense of adventure. So it’s got all the features and technologies you need to get you to your favourite sport, game, activity...
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 new Kuga’s optional electrically releasable tow bar makes it easy to let the tow bar tuck away behind the bumper when not in use.
Keeping your trailer in line
Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on the wheels.
Space for all your stuff
The Ford Kuga’s boot space is both generous and flexible. So you can fit in everything you need for a sporty weekend away, a holiday with the family or an expedition to the shops. There are plenty of handy stowage areas throughout the vehicle for everything from large water bottles, an A4-size atlas and umbrella, to smaller items like sunglasses, your mobile phone and keys.
