If tough-looking vehicles are your cup of tea, you might be interested to learn that Ford has recently taken the wraps off their latest Kuga car at MWC 2016. While its predecessors might feature softer and more sleek lines, the latest iteration of the Kuga has undergone a pretty huge facelift, which as you can tell from the photos, gives it a more rugged and tougher look.
However apart from giving it a facelift, under the hood, the new Kuga comes packed with a ton of features that modern day drivers might appreciate. For starters it comes with Ford’s SYNC 3 connectivity and even comes with Ford’s Perpendicular Parking technology. This helps drivers park their cars hands-free, so if you’re not particularly confident about your parking skills, this could help.
It also boasts features like Active City Stop collision avoidance system and will come with Ford’s Adaptive Front Lighting System that will help boost visibility in low-light conditions. According to Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “New Kuga offers cutting-edge new features and technologies that will help drivers stay connected, comfortable, safe and stylish on the road. The sophisticated redesign has given Kuga a fresh and modern feel, while SYNC 3 enables drivers to communicate with their vehicle and connected devices in seamless ways that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago.”
Aside from these hi-tech features, under the hood the Kuga will sport a new 120 PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine. There will also be a 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine for those looking for a bit more power. For those who still prefer petrol over diesel, the Kuga will also be available in a 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. No word on pricing just yet, but the Ford Kuga is expected to go on sale in October.
