Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

At long last, Ford’s crossover family has inherited the all-conquering genes from its hatchback set

The Kuga is extremely rounded – notwithstanding its rather blobby styling. It’s well-equipped, much more grown-up inside, but retains some verve to how it goes down the road. However, its engines have caught up to and in many cases overtaken the range of powertrains offered elsewhere in the class – it feels like a very futureproofed bit of kit. 

You can envisage Ford killing off one or two of the powertrains in a year or two’s time, and sticking with where the mass-market goes, whether that be with diesel, mild or plug-in hybrids. Ford’s sold a million Kugas since 2008 and it’s the Blue Oval’s third-biggest seller in Europe, but this is the first time it’s really felt like it’s a class challenger rather than another competitor.
