Ford Kuga has a new face! We ran the latest diesel model last week, but these cosmetic tweaks will also be available soon as part of the styling upgrade.
Exterior visual tweaks, including newer and more aggressive grille designs, body color side skirts, and 19 in alloys, are part of a new range of individual variations, with an additional option pack on all Titanium models from August 2nd.
The interior has also been improved, with ebony leather upholstery, aluminum pedals on manual models, scuff plates and floor mats with the ‘personal’ logo. The price of all the extra kits, including VAT, will be 000 4,000, while that of the Kuga Titanium 4 will be above the 24,495 starting price.
Launched in 2008, the Kuga was recently updated with the latest version of Ford’s 2.0 – liter TDC Duratorque diesel engine, which is six percent more efficient than the replacement 131 bhp unit, offering 138 bhp or 161 bhp.
Users can now also specify the four-wheel drive versions of the Kuga with Ford’s six-speed powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission, although first seen in focus, the Auto Box is not as profitable as its manual rivals.
