Crossover of medium size Ford Kuga was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008. The model was the first compact crossover Ford. “Kugu” of second generation was presented at the Auto Show in Los Angeles in 2011. The new car is as old, everything is built on the platform of the world’s best-selling Ford Focus, but now is not the second, but third generation.
Exterior design has been updated not radically, but rather took a deep restyling. Thus, the front part of the body is made in the style of the new Ford Focus c characteristic curved 2004 Ford Focus headlight bulb.
Oddly enough, but the more expensive equipment, including Titanium, are equipped with a 150-horsepower 1.6, and only in the top-end version of the Titanium Plus it is boosted to 182 hp. Also, only expensive equipment have permanent four-wheel drive.
In America, a hybrid version of the Ford Escape (Kuga) with 2,5-liter engine running on the Atkinson cycle also is available.
