ALL-NEW FORD KUGA

Beautifully designed, remarkably efficient, more than capable.
Available with Ford’s latest Plug-in Hybrid electric technology, for a cleaner, quieter, more sophisticated approach to SUV driving.
With a host of clever assistance technologies, and design features to compliment an active lifestyle, Ford Kuga is equally at home exploring rolling landscapes or seeking adventure from your city commute.

Performance and Efficiency

With a number of all-new Hybrid versions available, the All-New Ford Kuga offers newer, cleaner, and more economical ways to enjoy SUV driving.

Clean. Quiet. Capable

Equally suited to congested city streets and winding country roads. Ford Kuga’s advanced Plug-in Hybrid technology combines a battery powered electric motor with its 2.5-litre Duratec petrol engine – delivering a combined Hybrid power output of 225 PS, together with outstanding fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures of just 32g CO2/km (WLTP)/26g CO2/km (NEDC).

A choice of four electric vehicle (EV) modes means you can decide whether to run on power from the electric motor (EV Now), the petrol engine (EV Later), via a combination of both (EV Auto), or use the engine to recharge the Hybrid battery while you drive (EV Charge). So, you can make easy work of any journey, while keeping your city driving clean, quiet and refined.

Effortless charging

The New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid comes with two standard charging cables: one for regular home charging, and another for public charging stations.

Want to make charging your Plug-in Hybrid at home as fast as possible? With the help of one of our expert installation partners, you can install a Ford Wall-Box at home as an optional accessory. Capable of charging your Kuga from 0-100% in under 3.5 hours, the Ford Wall-Box offers much faster charging times than a conventional plug socket.

When you’re driving, a combination of regenerative braking and power drawn from the engine helps replenish the battery. And if you need to recharge on-the-go, you can easily use an ever-growing network of public charging stations too.

Uncompromised performance

The 1.5-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine uses a combination of direct fuel injection and turbo-charging, along with cylinder deactivation technology, to deliver outstanding power with remarkable efficiency. Available in a choice of 120 PS or 150 PS options, you’ll enjoy all the uncompromised performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.5-litre engine, but with better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.

Extra support for your engine

The All-New Kuga’s Ford EcoBlue Hybrid diesel option incorporates a small electric motor with a 48-volt battery to help improve engine efficiency.

This is a Mild-Hybrid Electric powertrain, which cannot be driven solely on electric power. Instead the electric motor provides additional support to the combustion engine when needed, helping both to increase your vehicle mileage, and reduce emission figures.

There is no need to connect the vehicle to an external power source, as the separate 48-volt battery pack which powers the electric motor is recharged while you drive. Regenerative braking works by redirecting energy from the brakes and back into the mild hybrid battery.

The smarter diesel option

Prefer diesel? Ford Kuga offers a choice of 1.5 and 2.0 litre EcoBlue engines, incorporating the latest diesel technology to improve power, torque and economy, whilst reducing emissions. Delivering an impressive 120 PS or 190 PS of power respectively, whichever diesel engine you choose, you'll also have the option of a manual or advanced automatic transmission.

Seamless gear selection

For models with automatic transmission, Kuga’s Rotary Gear Shift Dial gives you complete control of the advanced 8-speed gearbox – allowing you to seamlessly select gears with the simple twist of the dial. While replacing the conventional gear leaver frees up additional space for a cleaner, more refined interior design.

Tame every terrain

Smooth city streets, or rocky off-road terrain: wherever you’re driving, Kuga is built to maximise control. Choose from five available drive modes, which fine-tune vehicle performance to perfectly suit the conditions. The system alters acceleration, steering and suspension sensitivity, while also working with traction, stability, and Hill Decent Control systems, to provide optimum control in any setting.

Select between: Normal, Sport, Wet/Slippery, Trail, or for maximum efficiency, the Eco mode. Key information is displayed via Kuga’s 12.3” digital instrument cluster, which changes between unique colour themes according to which drive mode you have selected.

Reduced emissions

With impressive CO2 emissions figures of just 32g CO2/km (WLTP)/26g CO2/km (NEDC), the Ford Kuga Plug-In Hybrid engine meets the stringent Euro 6.2 emissions standards. These standards are designed to improve air quality and reduce exhaust emissions.

Driving Experience

Engineered to combine elegant styling with tough SUV capability: All-New Ford Kuga’s Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, All Wheel Drive and Selectable Drive Modes systems mean you can adapt your driving experience to any road conditions.

Make light work of heavy traffic

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go lets you set both your cruising speed, and distance from the vehicle in front. If it detects that traffic is slowing, the system will maintain that pre-set distance if conditions do not allow for your preferred cruising speed. It can even bring you to a complete stop in heavy traffic. Once the road in front is clear, the system automatically accelerates back up to your chosen speed – making it ideal for negotiating the crowded stop-start driving of urban environments. Add with Kuga’s Lane Keeping System helping to prevent unintentional lane departures and keep you smoothly centered on motorways, those long journeys become even more enjoyable.

Helping you stay in your lane

The Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Aid provides gentle steering torque assistance to help guide you back into your lane. If your wheel touches the line or edge of the road, Lane Keeping Alert vibrates the steering wheel and displays a visual warning. The technology automatically deactivates at speeds below 64 km/h, or can be turned off manually.

Let Kuga do the parking

Parking in a busy street or a tight space can be tricky. But with Enhanced Active Park Assist, the New Ford Kuga makes it easier than ever. Available on models with automatic transmission, the system can identify a suitable parking space, and then automatically perform the entire parking and exit manoeuvres for you. Activated by holding the Active Park Assist button, there’s no need for you to steer or use the pedals – the car takes care of it all for you.

Spots the road signs you might miss

Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. Icons for speed limits and no-overtaking signs are displayed on the instrument cluster, alerting you to changing restrictions.

Helping you to see around bends

Kuga’s adaptive front lighting system provides outstanding illumination in a variety of conditions. These eye-catching LED headlights use camera technology to monitor the road ahead and alter the light patterns accordingly.

Predictive curve light uses lane-markers to detect and illuminate bends in the road before you enter them. Sign-based light recognises if you approach a roundabout or stop sign and adapts the headlight beam to match the road layout. Glare-free high beam adjusts the headlight angle for maximum illumination. While the front camera helps the system to protect other drivers from glare.

Important information at a glance

The head up display projects key information into your field of vision, so you can keep your eyes on the road ahead. Compatible with polarised sunglasses, the clear, bright image can display your preferred choice of content – including vehicle speed, navigation, cruise control notifications and Traffic Sign Recognition data.

Sensors that take the stress out of parking

Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.

An extra pair of eyes

Blind Spot Information System uses lateral sensors to look for vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. If another vehicle is detected, the system will alert you via discreet warning lights built into both door mirrors. Cross Traffic Alert works with Blind Spot Information System to increase awareness when you’re reversing out of a space and have limited visibility. The system can detect vehicles approaching from the sides and sound a warning to alert you of their presence.

Extra control during hill starts

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

Helping you move in the right direction

Wrong Way Alert uses a forward-facing camera and information from the navigation system to detect if you’re driving against the direction of traffic. The system delivers visual and audible warnings if you drive the wrong way so that you can stop and take the necessary action.

Comfort and Convenience

From fluid lines and refined leather-wrapped interior finishes, to the expansive views offered by the panorama glass roof – a feeling of energised movement flows through every All-New Kuga design feature. While a host of sophisticated technologies assist and enhance every drive.

Go hands-free with SYNC 3

Ford SYNC 3 is a state-of-the-art system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with natural voice commands. You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”. It can read out your text messages too. The colour touchscreen features pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with AppLink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.

Unlock a world of connectivity

The All-New Kuga is now available with a built-in FordPass Connect modem, bringing you a whole range of new features that elevate your journeys to the next level. Get 4G LTE Wi-Fi§ for up to ten devices, send destinations straight from your phone to your in-car navigation, and get real-time traffic updates* along the way. Advanced remote features let you control and monitor your All-New Kuga from wherever you are too; use your phone to locate your vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, and even start the engine remotely to warm up your car on cold days. . If you choose  a Plug-in Hybrid, you can check your vehicle’s charge status directly from your phone, receive EV related notifications and review your charge settings.

No more rummaging for your keys

Hands-free tailgate makes access to your Kuga load compartment is easy, even when your hands are full. With your KeyFree key fob in your pocket or bag, simply use a gentle foot movement under the centre of the rear bumper and the hands-free tailgate will operate without you having to touch a thing. It can also be opened and closed while sitting inside the car.

Your world opens

Enjoy more of the great outdoors from the comfort of your Ford Kuga. An electrically-operated, dual panel panorama roof truly lets you feel immersed in the surrounding scenery. The roof sits above the first and second rows of seats, flooding the interior with natural light and creating an abundance of fresh air when opened. The sliding glass also has a solar reflective coating to help keep the interior cool when closed, while an internal sunblind provides extra shade when you need it.

With this system, you’ll be able to hear yourself think

Active Noise Control is designed to silence any unwanted cabin noise. Using technology similar to noise cancelling headphones, microphones detect and measure specific sound waves. The system then creates inaudible ‘white noise’ to cancel out any unwelcome noises, and provide you with a real sense of tranquillity when you’re driving.

Charging on the go

The interior of the Kuga is designed to maximise space and convenience. For example, the large media container in the centre console is big enough for even the largest smartphones. And with wireless charging also available for compatible smartphones††, it has never been easier to make sure your devices are always ready to use.

Music as it’s meant to be heard

Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. A tailor-made sound system from B&O means that’s exactly what you can expect from your new Kuga. The advanced 10-speaker, 575-watt setup has been specifically developed and fine-tuned for the Kuga by specialist B&O sound engineers. So, turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in your personal concert hall.

Smart, convenient and space-saving

The electric parking brake is a simple addition that has some surprising advantages. For instance, it gives you more room in the cabin, it’s easier to apply, and you won’t have to get the brakes serviced as regularly. And to apply the brake, all you have to do is press a button in the centre console.

Safety and Security

From alerting you to potential collision hazards, to clever systems that help you to maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That’s why the ALL-New Ford Kuga comes loaded with a host of clever assistance technologies as standard, all designed to help keep you, your family and other road users protected.

5-star safety

It’s not just us who are saying it. It’s no surprise to us that as proof of its outstanding ability to protect you and your passengers, the New Kuga has earned a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, the leading independent safety organisation in Europe. Their role is to thoroughly evaluate the safety of all new vehicles, holding them to the highest levels of scrutiny.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.

Maximises braking in an emergency

Emergency Brake Assist is designed to recognise an emergency braking situation and optimise the pressure within the braking system to provide maximum stopping power.

Protecting and securing your Kuga from thieves

A Thatcham Category 1 alarm is a sophisticated system that automatically arms itself when you double-lock your Kuga. It will sound a powerful alarm if triggered by forced entry, the car being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside. The technology is also designed to help prevent unwanted towing of your Kuga. It's possible to arm the system in different ways, which means you can choose to monitor the doors, bonnet and boot.

Utility

Refined, contemporary design on the outside. Adaptable, versatile space within. The All-New Ford Kuga is the perfect vehicle to help bring out your inner sense of adventure. Delivering an impressive towing capacity of up to 2,100 kg with the 2.0-litre diesel engine, and 1,500 kg with the Plug-in Hybrid. And with a range of roof carrying accessories available, the Ford Kuga is more than capable of handling your weekend away.

Flexible, adaptive rear seating

The All-New Ford Kuga’s dynamic interior design gives you the ultimate freedom to adapt to every journey. Need more boot-space for a big trip or prefer the luxury of extra leg-room in the back? The flexible rear seating slides forward or backward to suit your needs, increasing the rear storage capacity by 67-Litres when forward – so you’ll have no trouble packing anything you need.

Spacious and practical

Make easy work of shopping trips and school runs. Or why not throw a couple of bikes in the back and head out to explore? Kuga’s flexible rear seating and up to 1534 litres of storage capacity ensures you’ll always have all the space you’ll need.

Serious pulling power

From small trailer to sailboat or large caravan: with its impressive towing capacity of up to 2,100 kg, the All-New Ford Kuga is more than capable of handling your weekend away.

The optional, electrically-operated retractable tow bar can be manually stowed out of sight when not needed. Release it at the touch of a button, then retract it with a swift and easy action. An optional fully detachable tow bar is also available.
