FORD Kuga 2008-2012

Body style: SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)
Segment: Crossover
Production years: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012

Ford Kuga officially entered mass-production in mid-2008, with Ford's Saarlouis, Germany production plant the only facility to build the new model. Although it is especially designed for the European market, there were a couple of rumors indicating that Ford is considering bringing the compact crossover into the United States. This soon happened as the model is marketed as the Escape on the US market.

However, Kuga has always been regarded as a potential competitor for Citroen C-Crosser and Vauxhall/Opel Antara, being available at similar prices, about 20,500 pounds in UK, and providing almost the same engine performance and fuel consumption (rated at 44.1 mpg).

Well-balanced and proportioned, the Kuga is built on the Ford's acclaimed C-car architecture also shared by the Focus and the C-MAX. The robust exterior "kinetic design" is matched by a practical quality interior, offering plenty of passenger space for its class.

By default, the Ford Kuga is fitted with a FWD system, but an intelligent All-Wheel-Drive is available to make the most out of the available engines. This, combined with a handful of AWD technologies makes the Kuga a very maneuverable and safe choice.
