The new Ford Kuga has landed. It looks better, drives better, packs more space inside, more comfort, more features, and we could on. At Vanarama, we're big fans, with one member of staff calling it "the next big thing in the SUV market sector" – so, we've put together our top 5 reasons why you should lease a new Ford Kuga.
It's really comfy
The Kuga's driving position is absolutely spot on! It might sound like something Alan Partridge would say, but it's true – Ford has absolutely nailed it thanks to clever positioning of its pedal box, and the vast array of adjustments that can be made to the seat and the steering wheel. Even the view over the bonnet is perfect! And the seats? Oh, the seats are sublimely comfortable.
You always feel in control
It's a family car at heart, so it's not designed to be thrown around the roads with abandon. And yet, you most definitely can throw it around the roads. The Kuga is up there at the top of the list when it comes to SUVs that offer the perfect mix of comfort and control. Reviewers have commented that it puts some sports cars to shame with its handling...
The engines are strong
From 1.5-2.0 litre engines in diesel and petrol, the Kuga has a solution for whatever sort of power you're looking for. There's not much else to say apart from…there's plenty of options and I'll let this quote from Auto Trader do the talking for me – its review said that with the Kuga "you end up with a car that is light and easy to drive in town, yet flows along twisting country roads with an ease that would put many a sports car to shame". I'll leave that quote where it is!
Look at all those features!
Alloy wheels, powered windows, hill start, cruise control, air-con, DAB stereo, Bluetooth, climate control, partial leather seats, and on and on. What you get depends on the level you go for, so take a good look at the features list before you plump for one, but even at the bass level you get a lot of bang for your bucks.
It's a Ford!
Ford know what they're doing when it comes to vehicles. Reliability and Ford are words you always hear people uttering in the same breath. The Kuga is a good-looking car – with its big grille and splashes of chrome – and it's blessed with that big blue badge. It's also really practical with plenty of space in the cabin, more than enough room in the boot, and the back seats fold down for a little extra space if you need it. Ford went and thought of everything with the Kuga – the SUV sector is not an easy one to compete in, but the Kuga is a great choice if you're in the market for one.
