DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Engineered to combine elegant styling with tough SUV capability: New Ford Kuga’s Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, All Wheel Drive and Selectable Drive Modes systems mean you can adapt your driving experience to any road conditions.

YOUR PERSONAL DRIVING ASSISTANT

Ford Co-Pilot 360 combines a range of technologies making your driving experience more comfortable and enjoyable. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed based on the vehicle ahead. The system can even recognise speed signs and adjust your cruise control speed accordingly. Lane Centring technology can provide steering assistance by following road markings to help keep you positioned in the middle of your lane. Together, these technologies contributed to Kuga’s 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, the leading independent safety organisation in Europe.

HELPING YOU STAY IN YOUR LANE

The Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Aid provides gentle steering torque assistance to help guide you back into your lane. If your wheel touches the line or edge of the road, Lane Keeping Alert vibrates the steering wheel and displays a visual warning. The technology automatically deactivates at speeds below 40mph, or can be turned off manually.

LET KUGA DO THE PARKING

Parking in a busy street or a tight space can be tricky. But with Enhanced Active Park Assist, the New Ford Kuga makes it easier than ever. Available on models with automatic transmission, the system can identify a suitable parking space, and then automatically perform the entire parking and exit manoeuvres for you. Activated by holding the Active Park Assist button, there’s no need for you to steer or use the pedals – the car takes care of it all for you.

SEE WHAT'S COMING FROM EITHER SIDE

A small panoramic camera on the front of the Kuga relays a split-screen image to your SYNC 3 display so you can see vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians coming from either side. This front wide-view camera is invaluable if you’re edging out of a narrow parking space, or in a busy road where your view is obstructed.

EASIER REVERSING

Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear and shows whatever’s behind you on your SYNC 3 display. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines that show your current path and help you park into the smallest of spaces. You can also switch to split-screen image that shows you what’s coming from either side of your SUV, making it easier to reverse out of tight spaces.

SPOTS THE ROAD SIGNS YOU MIGHT MISS

Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. Icons for speed limits and no-overtaking signs are displayed on the instrument cluster, alerting you to changing restrictions.

HELPING YOU TO SEE AROUND BENDS

Kuga’s adaptive front lighting system provides excellent visibility in a variety of conditions. These eye-catching LED headlights use cameras to monitor the road ahead and alter the light patterns to suit different situations, including bends in the road or approaching roundabouts. Glare-free high beam adjusts the angle of the headlight for maximum illumination and minimum glare to protect oncoming traffic when it is detected.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AT GLANCE

The head-up display projects key information into your field of vision, so you can keep your eyes on the road ahead. Compatible with polarised sunglasses, the clear, bright image can display your preferred choice of content – including vehicle speed, navigation, cruise control notifications and Traffic Sign Recognition data.

AN EXTRA PAIR OF EYES

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) senses vehicles hidden in your blind spot to make changing lanes saferDriver-assist features. If it detects a vehicle, the system alerts you via discreet warning lights on the door mirrors. If you miss the warning, Blind Spot Assist applies light resistance to the steering, gently discouraging the manoeuvre. Cross Traffic Alert works with BLIS to increase awareness when you’re reversing out of a space with limited visibility. The system detects vehicles approaching from the sides and sounds a warning alerting you to their presence.

MOVE FORWARD WITH CONFIDENCE

Intersection Assist uses the Kuga's front cameras and radar to help you safely cross traffic at a junction. As you prepare to pull out, the system assesses the risk from oncoming vehiclesTooltip. If it detects a potential collision, it automatically applies the brakes.

EXTRA CONTROL DURING HILL START

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

HELPING YOU MOVE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

Wrong Way Alert uses a forward-facing camera and information from the navigation system to detect if you’re driving against the direction of traffic. The system delivers visual and audible warnings if you drive the wrong way so that you can stop and take the necessary action.

PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY

Powerful, efficient and versatile. Available with a range of hybrid, petrol and diesel options, you’re sure to find the Kuga that suits your needs. The advanced Kuga Plug-in Hybrid offers a seamless blend of petrol and electric power; the Kuga Full Hybrid has an electric motor to increase efficiency; and the EcoBlue Mild Hybrid features regenerative braking.

EFFORTLESS CHARGING

If you choose the new Kuga Plug-in Hybrid, it comes with one standard cable for regular home charging. You can also order an optional cable for public charging stations.

To make charging at home as fast as possible, you can install a Ford Wallbox charging point at home as an optional accessory. Capable of charging your Kuga from 0–100% in under 3.5 hours, the Ford Wallbox offers much faster charging times than a conventional plug socket. We've teamed up with British Gas to offer approved home installation and competitive energy rates.

When you’re driving, a combination of regenerative braking and power drawn from the engine helps replenish the battery. Use the FordPass app on your phone to manage your charging. You can view the hybrid battery’s charge status and set preferred charging times to take advantage of lower, night time energy rates.

ADVANCED SELF-CHARGING TECHNOLOGY

In addition to connecting your Kuga Plug-In Hybrid to a charging point, the battery is also able to recharge itself. Regenerative braking captures some the energy that’s usually lost when you apply the brakes and then sends it back to the battery. The petrol engine sends power back to the hybrid battery too. This helps to constantly keep the battery topped up and maximise efficiency.

USE LESS FUEL WITH AUTO-START-STOP

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine, while still supplying power to the essentials. When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic vehicle, and the system seamlessly restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).

TAME EVERY TERRAIN

Wherever you’re driving, Kuga is built to maximise control. Choose from five drive modes, which fine-tune vehicle performance to suit the conditions. Select between: Normal, Sport, Wet/Slippery, Trail, or for maximum efficiency, Eco mode. The drive modes alter acceleration, steering and suspension, while also adjusting the traction and stability controls to provide optimum control in any setting.

HELPING YOU DRIVE MORE EFFICIENTLY

A range of features can help you to save fuel and maximise the recharge rate of your hybrid battery. View your Journey Insights in the FordPass app to see data on your historical journeys, including Fuel Reports to help you stay on top of your spending. If you choose a Kuga Hybrid, then Brake Coach can tell you how to brake more efficiently to reduce your fuel consumption. And EV Coach will help you improve how quickly the hybrid battery recharges with Regenerative Braking technology.

SAFETY AND SECURITY

From alerting you to potential collision hazards, to clever systems that help you to maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That’s why the New Ford Kuga comes loaded with a host of clever assistance technologies as standard, all designed to help keep you, your family and other road users protected.

Euro NCAP logo

5-STAR SAFETY

As proof of its outstanding ability to protect you and your passengers, the Kuga has earned a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, the leading independent safety organisation in Europe. And in their new Assisted Driving tests that took place over 2 weeks, Kuga came out ahead of the pack too with a ‘Good’ rating, showing high performance in all areas and a good balance between Driver Engagement and Vehicle Assistance with a robust Safety Backup.

TOTAL PEACE OF MIND

When you buy a Kuga Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), Ford Aftercare ensures that all the hybrid components, including the PHEV battery, are protected by your warranty too. The warranty covers any part of the vehicle that requires repair or replacement as a result of a manufacturing defect for the first 3 years or 60,000 miles. All PHEV components are protected for the first 5 years or 60,000 miles. And the battery itself is protected for the first 8 years or 100,000 miles.

A SYSTEM THAT CAN HELP PROTECT PEDESTRIANS

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.

DISCOVER LOCAL HAZARDS EARLY

Local Hazard Information informs you of any issues that might impact your journey. From road works, to accidents, and even localised flooding… The system uses data from connected vehicles, the public incident database and other sources to discover issues in your area. An alert in your digital display lets you know the type of hazard, and even its distance from you. You can activate your one-year free trial of Local Hazard Information by downloading the FordPass app.

A RETRACTABLE TOW BAR: THERE WHEN YOU NEED IT
