Well, brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen, because Germany has just unleashed the revamped Ford Kuga onto the world! This compact crossover has undergone a makeover, following in the tire tracks of its transatlantic sibling, the Escape.
The 2024 Ford Kuga makes its presence known right from the front, sporting a fresh face. It proudly boasts a broad radiator grille, and the slanted headlights are connected by a diode-infused insert, giving it that futuristic touch.
And hold on to your hats, because even in the base model, you’re treated to the full LED magic of the headlights. If you’re feeling a bit fancy, you can throw in some pixel-perfect headlights with adjustable beams for an extra splash of extravagance.
Joining the lineup is the off-road enthusiast’s dream – the Ford Kuga Active. This crossover stands out with its pronounced plastic body kit, shouting to the world that it’s ready for some serious off-road action.
Inside, feast your eyes on the enlarged 13.2-inch touchscreen of the brand-new SYNC4 multimedia system. It’s not just a screen; it’s a command center. Complete with 5G internet, enhanced navigation with real-time traffic updates, the ever-helpful voice assistant Alexa, and the convenience of wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Now, let’s talk about the showstopper – the top-of-the-line plug-in hybrid Ford Kuga. It’s flexing some muscles with a beefier 240 horsepower and can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a brisk 7.3 seconds. The enlarged 14.4 kWh battery pack gives you the freedom to cover up to 69 km on electric power alone. And fear not, my petrol-loving friends, because the lineup still features the 180-horsepower hybrid and the petrol version equipped with a punchy 1.5-liter 150-horsepower turbocharged engine.
So, there you have it, folks – the German-tuned Ford Kuga, ready to take on the roads with style, substance, and a touch of that undeniable Ford charisma.
