Ford refreshed the third generation of its European compact crossover Kuga in early 2024, bringing 5G technology and other essential updates to this successful model.

Ford had an edge over its competitors in a market where customers had migrated from station wagons and minivans to crossovers and SUVs. It had vast experience in producing 4x4 vehicles and used it to stay ahead of the competition. While it didn’t lead the European market, it was ahead of others. The third generation of the Kuga came onto the market in the spring of 2019, and despite the drop in sales during the world pandemic, the crossover bounced back and became the best-selling PHEV on the European market in 2021 and 2022. As a result, to keep its customers happy and bring them back to Ford dealerships, the blue-oval brand introduced a refreshed version of the Kuga in 2024.

Along with the refresh, Ford introduced the Active trim level, which was created for those looking for a more adventurous vehicle. Even though it wasn’t a rugged off-road beast, it could still perform well on unpaved roads. The entire refreshed Kuga range received a new front fascia that featured an LED stripe that visually connected the redesigned, elongated headlights. The upper grille featured a new hexagonal pattern where the Ford logo took center stage. Lower, on the bumper, the automaker added a light-gray air intake that resembled a skid plate, even though it was made from plastic. The Active package also included a new set of side scoops that housed a set of round fog lamps. Apart from this version, the Kuga was also available in ST clothing, featuring new trims around the side scoops that channeled air around the vehicle, forming an air curtain.

From its profile, the Kuga sported black B- and C-pillars and trims around the windows. Still, the overall shape of the crossover didn’t change compared to the non-facelifted version of it, but some details made it look different. In addition, the new design for the alloy wheels and the turn signals integrated into the body-colored door mirrors looked more upscale. Finally, at the back, the 2024 Kuga featured wide taillights extended from the rear quarter panels onto the metallic part of the tailgate.

Inside, the automaker installed high-bolstered front seats for all versions. Those from the Active trim level sported an A letter embroidered on the seatbacks. On the dashboard, the automaker installed a wide touchscreen fitted with Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment, offering 5G connectivity. Furthermore, it featured wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus built-in Alexa. Customers could enjoy enough headroom for all seats. In addition, the rear bench seat could slide and provide over a meter (3 ft) of additional legroom for those seated in the back.

Under the hood, the 2024 Kuga was available with either mild-hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions that sent their power to the front wheels or in all corners via either a manual or an automatic transmission.
