FORD Kuga · photos, packages and modifications

When you consider about the new Ford Kuga 2013 model, it was an effective combination of two cars in one. This model was designed as the one with no substitution for model with sporty-looking and stylish option, which was sold in Europe. It was also treated as the model designed in order to replace the utilitarian Escape model that sold out in the North American market. As a result of the design, this model came as bigger one along with the compromised look. The new Kuga model of the Ford family came up with the new face that would probably be carried out the narrow grille concept of Vertrek and the split lower intakes. Even though this car designed with the window line as running along the side of the car and also the upswept crease, it was not met with the aggressive proportions of the old and pervious models of this series. The interior design of this model was heavily derived from the C-MAX and the latest Focus models, which would probably provide with the modern-looking dash design along with albeit one as too many buttons and the interior quality as decent one. When you consider about the trim levels of this model, there were three options available including the Titanium, Titanium X and the Zetec version. But, all the car models had come with the features of sports seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, daytime running lights and the keyless start option.

When you consider about the old Kuga model, it was treated as one of the sharpest mid-sized SUVs for driving and hence it made the feel as high-riding Focus model than the SUV. But, the latest Kuga model was designed as the one with less precise and much softer character, which would probably be made the Mazda CX-5 model to become as the class-leader in this category of cars. Even though the ride on this car was firm one, it would probably provide you with the comfortable drive rather than the sporty one. This could be easily done in the case of cornering more aggressively and that too at the time of body rolling more than your expectation. This model was précised with the new and fully electric power steering, but it was gone through the feedback because of the light. When you consider about the dimension of this car, it became as difficult one to judge out that because of the swampy shape. Even though this Ford Kuga was weighed the same as the original model released before, it would probably provide you with the feel of more weight obviously under braking.

If you go through the four-wheel-drive-models of this car, it was used out an intelligent system in order to monitor out the 25 different parameters including the wheel speed to steering angles. This would probably be made out the Kuga as the model to cope up with the slippery conditions for delivering the impressive grip. The engine of this model was kicked off with the 148 bhp 1.6 liter EcoBoost petrol engine that was also available with the six-speed manual gearbox option. This model was also designed with the option of dual-clutch PowerShift automatic of Ford, but it would be better to avoid this because it was an unknown thing to come up with the best gear option. Even though a 178 bhp version of the engine was available along with the four-wheel drive option, most of the car buyers preferred to opt with the 138 bhp or 161 bhp 2.0 liter diesel models in order to offer the greatest blend of efficiency and pace.

This Ford Kuga model got with the full five-star score in the Euro NCAP crash test, which was treated as the best result ever scored by any of the mid-sized SUVs. All Kuga car models were featured with the standard fitted airbags for driver, side, passenger, and knee and curtain one that too along with the ESP, ABS and the lane keeping aid and active city stop. It was also designed with the optional blind spot monitoring system. The four-wheel-drive system of this car was designed in order to stop you at the first place, when you got with any trouble. When you consider about the engines, technical specifications and platform of the Kuga model, all these things were already used and proven in other Ford models as the best one. The largest dealer network also keeping the things related to Kuga in order to make it on the road as simple one to drive.

When you go through the biggest problem of older car models, you would probably come up with the result as insufficient space for the rear-seat passengers as well as for luggage. But, this new Kuga model was designed to offer the boot space as 82 liter bigger one that too at 442 liter, which was more space compared to Tiguan model, but lesser than the Honda CR-V model. In order to create the maximum load area of up to 1,928 liter, the rear seats of the car was folded flat and it would probably result in a massive 600 liter more than before. The loading into the car became as easy one because of the lower lip option. For the first time, this model was designed with the boot floor along with two levels, even though there was lowest setting. It was featured with the big step between the seats and the boot floor. There was plenty of room available for passengers for both head and leg, even though you are tall and more than six feet. It was also designed with the comfortable seat setback for the driver and the rear seat backs could be declined in order to give a more comfortable angle to sit. But, it would probably better to hamper out the boot space temporarily.
