Ford expects to surpass , SUV sales in Europe for the first time in — a growth of more than 30 per cent compared with Also debuting in Geneva is a concept version of a forthcoming Ford Kuga Vignale, offering an insight into the future of Ford luxury SUVs in Europe and featuring unique, upscale design and specification. SYNC 3 delivers faster performance, simplified commands, and supports five additional languages.
A new interface features larger, easier to operate buttons and enables pinch and swipe gestures for the first time. Android Auto makes apps and services that drivers already know and love, accessible in safer and seamless ways including Google Search, Google Maps and Google Play. Software can be updated over-the-air via Wi-Fi. The new Ford Kuga will make driving and parking simpler for customers, using sophisticated Ford driver assistance technologies.
New Perpendicular Parking functionality enhances the semi-autonomous Active Park Assist technology specified by almost half of Kuga customers last year. Using additional ultrasonic sensors, Perpendicular Parking at the push of a button enables drivers to locate parking spaces alongside other cars as well as parallel to the road, and steers the vehicle into them while the driver controls the accelerator and brake.
Additional sensors enable technologies that also help Kuga drivers as they manoeuvre out of parking spaces:. Operating with radar at a range of up to 40 metres feet , the system issues three warning signals if it detects a vehicle approaching from either side. After the driver has chosen either the left or right hand side the system operates the steering while the driver operates the accelerator and brake.
Active City Stop uses sensors at the front of the vehicle to look for stationary objects in the road ahead and pre-charges the brakes if the vehicle is approaching an object too quickly.
If the driver still does not respond the system reduces engine torque and automatically applies the brakes to reduce the impact of collisions, or avoid them altogether. The latest generation Ford MyKey technology allows new Kuga owners to programme a key for younger drivers that can inhibit incoming phone calls; restrict top speed; prevent deactivation of driver assistance and safety features; reduce audio system maximum volume, and disable the audio system altogether if occupants are not using safety belts.
The enhanced MyKey system offers a greater number of choices in both the speed limiter and speed minder settings. A large upper trapezoidal grille and a smaller lower grille are flanked by sleek new headlamps incorporating LED Daytime Running Lights and complemented by stylish fog lamps. Restyled taillights complete the sporty look, while a new range of and inch alloy wheel designs also will be available in variety of finishes including Luster Nickel.
Two new colours, Guard Grey and the vibrant shade Copper Pulse, will be offered throughout the range. The steering wheel and air-conditioning controls are even more intuitive, and feature fewer and more easily distinguishable buttons and switches, making the controls easier to recognise and navigate. The steering wheel is also offered with heated leather to improve comfort in cold weather, while all automatic new Kuga models will feature paddle-shift controls that enable drivers to manually select gears while keeping their hands on the wheel.
My only complaints so far is boot is a little small considering size of car. For , the lineup was expanded with the introduction of the Mariner Hybrid. The engine is smooth and brisk, and pulls the caravan with no problems. Help others by leaving your own review Write review. Retrieved August 7,
New convenience features make Kuga even more user-friendly; an electronic parking brake is effortless to operate and frees room for improved storage in the centre console, while a door lock indicator will tell drivers at a glance whether the doors are locked. The New Kuga also offers Hands-Free Liftgate that can be opened or closed using a kicking motion beneath the rear bumper.
The technology, which was specified by more than 1-in-3 Kuga customers in Europe last year, helps parents to easily access the boot when returning to their vehicle with shopping, pushchairs or toddlers.
