Summary


The Ford Kuga was a medium-sized SUV/crossover vehicle. This model was first launched in 2013 and had a major update in the second half of 2016. It ended production in 2019, with an all-new replacement arriving in the UK in Spring 2020.

The Kuga scored average to good reviews from UK media sources throughout its production life, and was eventually outclassed by newer arrivals in the mid-sized crossover category. The updated models from late 2016 onwards were considered significantly better than the earlier versions, although the top-spec Vignale models did not score as well as the entry-level models.
