You need to adapt, even in your daily routine. And your vehicle is no different. It needs to change according to what you are taking with you and which road is on the way. We review the all-new Ford Kuga ST-Line EcoBoost AWD 6AT at Consolidated Auto in Boksburg.

Exterior

The new Ford Kuga ST-Line is sportier thanks to a hexagonal design for the lower section of the grille, a glossy black finish for the front grille and matching lattice that finishes the fog lamp bezels. The side skirts, skid plate, door handles, mirrors and wheel arches are all colour coded and constitute the body kit for the ST Line.

Interior

The interior of the Ford Kuga ST consists of partial leather seats with coloured stitching that extends to the centre console and gear lever. The ST logo also appears on the scuff plates when you open the door and the Kuga’s seven airbags – including side curtain airbags – offer extra protection for both front and backseat passengers.

Power & performance

The Kuga ST is available in petrol or diesel, and both are AWD with a 6-speed torque-converter automatic transmission. The 2.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine has 177kW of power and 340Nm of torque. The Kuga ST is also offered in a 2.0-litre diesel guise, offering 132kW of power and 400Nm of torque – for those who need the extra oomph!

Tech

The Kuga ST’s intuitive SYNC 3 system is smart and simple with an 8-inch capacitive touchscreen, which has enhanced voice control and updated commands. The hands-free power tailgate opens and closes by waving your foot under the bumper and it even adjusts to the height of your garage.

Peace of mind motoring

Ford offers a 4 year/120 000km comprehensive warranty, 6 year/90 000km service plan, 3 year roadside assistance and 5 year/unlimited km corrosion warranty, as well as 15 000km service intervals.
