Ford Kuga: the basics

The Ford Kuga is an SUV, segment D, manufactured by Ford since 2007. Currently, the third generation is marketed, presented in 2019. The Ford Kuga is characterised by now having a wide variety of hybrid solutions and a good value price-quality. 

Among the midsize SUVs that aspire to rival the Ford Kuga, we find other SUVs in its class, including the Nissan Qashqai, the Kia Sportage, the Hyundai Tucson the Honda CR-V.

Ford Kuga engines

The Ford Kuga is available to choose both diesel and gasoline four-cylinder engines and, of course, with three different hybrid solutions. Its powers are well staggered.

The Ford Kuga gasoline engines revolve around the 1.5 EcoBoost with two performance levels: 120 and 150 hp. The Ford Kuga diesel engines do it around the 120 hp 1.5 EcoBlue engine or a 190 hp 2.0 EcoBlue block.

In addition to the six-speed manual gearbox, an automatic transmission is available. Besides, two traction options are available: to the front wheels or both axles, the latter being of the intelligent type.

The Ford Kuga plug-in-hybrid

The great novelty of the Ford Kuga, without a doubt, is that it is available with three different hybrid solutions: a micro-hybrid, a full hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid.

The Ford Kuga EcoBlue Hybrid is the micro-hybrid, supported by an electric motor, 48-volt installation, and the 150 hp diesel engine. This version receives an ECO label.

The Ford Kuga Hybrid is a complete hybrid, with a gasoline engine and a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle, a back-up electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery. We do not know its power, but we know that its approved consumption is around 5.6 litres / 100 kilometres.

The Ford Kuga Plug-In is a plug-in hybrid and a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle gasoline engine, with 225 hp of power – combined – and a 14.4 kWh battery. Its electric autonomy, approved, is around 50 kilometres.

The bottom line
