PLUSH IN THE SLUSH (new2) 17/02/2017

Ford's Kuga is at its smartest in plush Vignale guise. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.

Ten Second Review

The Ford Kuga has sharpened up its act to the point where the Blue Oval brand thinks that this better-specced, more exclusive 'Vignale' version might even appeal to buyers of premium brand SUV Crossovers. Enhancements include a much nicer cabin and more personal dealer service.

Background

'Vignale' is Ford-speak for 'very nice indeed'. The company wants to know just how far it can push the appeal of its mainstream products up-market, hence the availability of this top-spec trim level on Fiesta, Mondeo, S-MAX and Edge models. Here, we're looking at the way it enhances the appeal of the brand's mid-sized Kuga SUV Crossover. This is a car recently much improved with a smarter cabin, extra multi-media technology and a new entry-level 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine. Would you want all of that with a much more exclusive ownership experience? If so, read on....

Driving Experience

The Kuga has long been one of the better SUV Crossover models to drive and this improved second generation model maintains that tradition. Body control is better regulated than it is on most other segment rivals we've tried. Plus the well-weighted power steering and electronic aids like 'Curve Control' and a torque vectoring system for extra cornering grip all add to the confidence you feel behind the wheel. Opt for a model fitted with Ford's 'Intelligent AWD' set-up and you can carry that peace of mind forward into really slippery conditions, this being one of those 4x4 packages that continually monitors your driving environment, optimising traction to direct power between the wheels as required. You'll want to know about engines. Vignale buyers get only one of the petrol engines available in the rest of the range - the 182PS version of the 1.5-litre EcoBoost unit, a variant that comes only with AWD and auto transmission. There's the full range of TDCi diesels on offer though, including the new 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi entry-level diesel powerplant. Most will want to opt for the 2.0-litre TDCi diesel, available with 150PS, manual transmission and front wheel drive. Or 180PS and AWD, with a choice or manual or PowerShift auto gearboxes.

Design and Build

Buyers of this Vignale variant get a slightly smarter front grille and subtle bodystyling changes, plus more exclusive-looking 18-inch alloy wheels and LED tail lamps. Otherwise, the look is the same as that of any other up-pec Kuga, enhanced at the front by Bi-Xenon headlamps that can adapt themselves to road and cimate conditions as you drive. Inside, the cabin's much smarter than it was in previous Kuga models, a hi-tech 8-inch SYNC3 infotainment screen removing a lot of the previous cabin button clutter. This package offers fast activation, large buttons, easy app integration and, perhaps most importantly, functionality that allows you to duplicate the operation of your smartphone onto the central fascia screen via either 'Apple CarPlay' or the 'Mirror Link' 'Android Auto' system. In the back, the central transmission tunnel's usefully low and it's important to note that there's as much room for legs, knees and heads as in the best of this Kuga's rivals. The bench can't feature Volkswagen Tiguan-like sliding functionality, but the backrest does recline for greater comfort on longer journeys. Out back, there's a 456-litre boot.

Market and Model

Kuga Vignale prices start at just over £30,000, which means a £2,000 premium over the best-equipped model in the standard range, the 'Titanium X' variant. As a 'Vignale' buyer, you'll have a 'Relationship Manager' assigned to you to look after your ownership needs, someone who'll be on hand both at your local dealership and via a dedicated hotline. When the time comes for servicing, you'll enjoy a free collection and return service and after every garage visit, your car will get a complementary carwash and premium valet treatment. In addition, as you'd expect, you get more kit on a 'Vignale' variant - things like exclusive two-tone 'Tuxedo' quilted leather upholstery, a rear view camera, LED tail lamps and special finishing inside and out that includes a bespoke body styling kit and a unique front grille. In addition, the SYNC3 infotainment system gets an upgrade to include 3D navigation display and a 9-speaker Sony stereo. There are also Bi-Xenon headlamps with a jet wash, a special 'Vignale' leather steering wheel and an 'Active Park Assist' system that steers you into spaces.

Cost of Ownership

Ford has pulled out all the stops to make this current Kuga more economical. For example, an Active Grille Shutter is fitted to all versions. This closes the front grille, reducing aerodynamic drag when the radiator isn't in need of additional cooling and then reopens it upon demand. Auto-Start-Stop is also standard across the range. Features like an Eco Mode and a Gear Shift Indicator help keep your right boot out of the carpet. All this effort has paid off in terms of efficiency. The 1.5 TDCi powerplant manages 64.2mpg and 115g/km. And the front-driven 2.0 TDCi 150PS model manages 60.1mpg and 122g/km - or 54.3mpg and 135g/km if you order it with AWD, figures duplicated by the top 2.0 TDCi 180PS AWD derivative. Go for the 1.5 EcoBoost 182PS variant and those figures fall only marginally to 37.7mpg and 173g/km.

Summary

You're going to really need to want a Ford Kuga to pay this much for one. Ford knows that for the money being asked for 'Vignale' variants of this car, desirable premium-brand rivals await. But to equip one of those to this Ford's standard would probably cost you the best part of an extra £10,000. And then you still wouldn't get the special service the Blue Oval brand promises will come complete with this car. In summary then, an acquired taste but, for the right kind of buyer, potentially a very satisfying one.

THE GETAWAY CAR (new2) 11/11/2016

Ford's Kuga has sharpened up its act in this improved second generation guise. Jonathan Crouch checks out the changes.

Ten Second Review

The Ford Kuga has evolved in this improved second generation form into a more desirable proposition that'll be equally attractive to Qashqai-like Crossover and RAV4-style soft roading SUV buyers. The single five-seat bodystyle is properly family-sized and gets some clever technology that segment buyers will like. In other words, if you're shopping in this sector, here's a car you have to consider.

Background

By now, you ought to be pretty familiar with the second generation Ford Kuga. You are, right? It's like the first generation car but bigger, more efficient and smarter inside. There's still no seven seat option, but Ford reckoned that this was something only a small percentage of compact SUV buyers actually wanted. The latest model has come in for a bit of a wash and brush-up, with a restyled front end, extra safety tech and lots of fresh media connectivity inside. Otherwise, it's much as you were. The Kuga established its reputation as being one of the best compact SUVs to drive and this one should be no different. At first glance then, the news seems all good.

Driving Experience

Under the bonnet, things are much as before, which means that the petrol range is based around a 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine, though this unit is now available in three guises. The 120 and 150PS versions of this unit are familiar, allied exclusively to front wheel drive. New though, is the 182PS variant of this unit, which can only be ordered with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and AWD. Most Kuga buyers though, are going to want a diesel. Possibly the 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi unit that only comes with front wheel drive. But more probably the 2.0 TDCi engine that in 150PS form, offers the choice of either front or four wheel drive, manual or Powershift automatic transmission. If you want more power, there's a 2.0 TDCi 180PS variant at the top of the range that only comes with AWD. This has always been one of the very best family-sized Crossovers to choose if you like your driving. There's a torque vectoring control system to reduce the sort of understeer you'd expect in a car of this type and the Kuga has always performed well in terms of ride quality and refinement.

Design and Build

This improved Kuga features Ford's latest design language for a bolder, sportier look that's shared with the company's EcoSport compact SUV and Edge large SUV models. A large upper trapezoidal grille and a smaller lower grille are flanked by sleeker headlamps incorporating LED daytime running lights. Restyled taillights complete the changes, along with revised alloy wheels, available in 17, 18 or 19-inch rims. Inside, the updates are subtle, but quite effective. So the steering wheel and air-conditioning controls are more intuitive and feature fewer and more easily distinguishable buttons and switches, making the controls easier to recognise and navigate. The steering wheel is offered with optional heating to improve comfort in cold weather, while all automatic Kuga models now feature paddle-shift controls that enable drivers to manually select gears while keeping their hands on the wheel. Extra convenience features include an electronic parking brake that frees up room for improved storage in a centre console that now also features a storage area capable of accommodating a variety of bottles and cups. There's also a new USB connection point for integrating and charging mobile devices. Otherwise, things are much as before. Which means that inside, there's decent headroom all round and reasonable rear legroom too. Out back, there's a 438-litre boot.

Market and Model

Prices are much as before, which means a starting point of just over £20,000, rising up to around £35,000. You get a lot more technology for that though, in this revised model. Take the new 'SYNC 3' connectivity system. It delivers faster performance, simplified commands and supports the 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' smartphone connectivity systems, so you can use your favourite apps on the dashboard's 8-inch colour touchcreen. The new Kuga also features Ford's Perpendicular Parking technology that helps drivers park handsfree in spaces alongside other cars. Plus there's an enhanced version of the 'Active City Stop' collision avoidance system. And Ford's 'Adaptive Front Lighting System' for optimised visibility in low light. Further advanced technologies include a 'Hands-Free Liftgate' powered rear hatch that you can activate by waving your foot beneath the bumper. The latest generation 'Ford MyKey' technology allows 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 also offers a greater number of choices in both the speed limiter and speed minder settings. It's all very reassuring.

Cost of Ownership

Ford has pulled out all the stops to make the latest Kuga more economical than before. For example, an Active Grille Shutter is fitted to all versions. This closes the front grille, reducing aerodynamic drag when the radiator isn't in need of additional cooling and then reopens it upon demand. Auto-Start-Stop is also standard across the range. Features like an Eco Mode and a Gear Shift Indicator help keep your right boot out of the carpet. All this effort has paid off in terms of efficiency. The 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol variant manages 44.8mg on the combined cycle and 145g/km of CO2 in both 120 and 150PS guises. Go for the 1.5 EcoBoost 182PS variant and those figures fall only marginally to 37.7mpg and 173g/km. As for the diesels, well the 1.5 TDCi powerplant manages 58.8mpg and 124g/km. And the front-driven 2.0 TDCi 150PS model manages 60.1mpg and 122g/km - or 54.3mpg and 135g/km if you order it with AWD, figures duplicated by the top 2.0 TDCi 180PS AWD derivative.

Summary

Ford has finally got serious about the SUV market and its three offerings now effectively cover this growing market. This Kuga certainly needs to appeal to a lot of different countries if it's to earn its corn and while some have grumbled that it doesn't feel particularly tailored to UK buyers, that's something we're going to have to get used to. Sales haven't been bad, so Ford's clearly doing something right. The latest model becomes more sophisticated and gets a bit more kit but otherwise, the script doesn't change radically. If you want to make a style statement, you'll still keep saving for a Discovery Sport. Otherwise, the Kuga is still one of the very best compact SUVs for those who love to drive.

ONE FOR THE ROAD (family) 11/11/2016

Seemingly every major manufacturer has a family Crossover product nowadays. June Neary tries Ford's. It's called the Kuga and in improved second generation form, it's good to drive as well as family-friendly

Will It Suit Me?

The Qashqai-class family Crossover is a type of car that you either like or loath. With this sort of model, either the aggressive grilles, flared wheelarches and questionable ability to tame mother nature's harshest terrain speak to you on a primeval level - or you'll think it's all a bit silly and over the top. Of course, there are different degrees of 'Crossovery-ness' and these days, the boundary between this kind of car and a proper 4x4 SUV has never been blurrier. Perhaps the non-believers should take another look at this controversial class of vehicle? If there's any model with the qualities to persuade them, then I think Ford's Kuga must have a chance. The Kuga puts up very little pretence of off-road ability. Instead, Ford has taken the refreshing approach of creating a car of his kind that's designed to reward at the wheel - a rare attribute in this class. Despite that, buyers still get the usual Crossover class virtues, namely a high driving position and the easy access of a 4x4 SUV thanks to a tall shape and raised ride height. There's also the option of 4x4 transmission that will allow the car to tackle the gravel driveways and grassy banks owners might occasionally encounter while also providing enhanced grip on the tarmac. Importantly, however, by doing without the heavy-duty suspension needed for serious off-road driving and borrowing its underpinnings from the Ford Focus hatchback, the Kuga has the pedigree for a car-like driving experience. All that remains to be seen is how it stacks up in the real world.

Practicalities

The Kuga's looks are certainly appealing. Ford has managed to strike a neat balance between the cute and the sporty with the aggressive angles of its bold front end and the compact, stocky proportions of the vehicle as a whole. The interior is similarly easy to like with lots of classy chrome and aluminium finishes, particularly on the up-spec models, and controls that are straightforward to master. Space in the front is fine and rear legroom is much better than the previous generation version of this car could offer. In the cargo area, you'll find 406-litres of space if the seatbacks are in a fully reclined position. Plus of course you can fold the seatbacks flat, a neat operation that needs just a pull on the seat-mounted lever that sees the rear backrests flip and fold forward. The result isn't a totally flat load area but it is quite a large one with at least 1,603-litres of space, much more than you'd get in a comparable Nissan Qashqai.

Behind the Wheel

Most of the versions that people actually buy are powered by a Ford 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine. This unit has either 150PS or a rounder-looking 180PS. The difference between the performance of the two versions of this engine isn't great, with even the lower-powered option managing sixty from rest in around 10.1s on the way to 121mph flat out in 2WD form. There's also a lower-powered 1.5-litre TDCi 120PS diesel option, if funds are tighter. The green pump alternative is Ford's 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol unit with 120 or 150PS as a 2WD manual or 182PS as an AWD automatic. The lower-powered option might even make more sense than the diesel for lower mileage owners. Fuel economy shouldn't keep prospective owners awake at night. In AWD guise, the 150PS 2.0 TDCi engine returns a healthy 54.3mpg and carbon dioxide emissions are a similarly benign 135g/km. Go for the lighter 2WD model and these figures are improved to 60.1mpg and 122g/km. The front-driven 150PS 1.5-litre petrol version manages 45.6mpg and 143g/km.

Value For Money

If, having considered all of this, you conclude that it is indeed a Kuga that you really want, then you'll expect it to be well equipped. And by and large, whichever five-door five-seat, two or four-wheel drive, manual or automatic variant you decide upon - 1.5T petrol EcoBoost or 2.0 TDCi diesel - you shouldn't be disappointed. Alloy wheels, daytime running lights, front foglights, a Quickclear heated windscreen, powered heated mirrors, a Thatcham Category 1 alarm, decent quality 6-speaker CD stereo system, air conditioning, cruise control and a hill start assist system to stop you from drifting backwards on uphill junctions are all standard.

Could I Live With One?

Crossover models of this kind have developed into a bit of a touchy subject over the last few years. Are they really all style over substance? This Kuga offers a credible answer to that query. It's efficient, practical and surprisingly good to drive. If you're shopping in this segment, it needs to be on your list.
