2015 Ford Kuga Speed Date

Dating a Kuga. Yep — they even have ads for that on TV now, apparently. Sadly though, this isn't a switch from my standard eHarmony type adventures with cars to a more extreme late-night Snapchat exploit — Kuga and I just kicked about over the weekend, although we did meet some other animals in our travels.

Medium SUV Comparison : Ford Kuga v Mazda CX-5 v Subaru Forester v Volkswagen Tiguan

Medium SUV Comparison : Jeep Cherokee v Mazda CX-5 v Toyota RAV4 v Nissan X-Trail v Ford Kuga v Subaru Forester v Hyundai ix35 v Honda CR-V v Mitsubishi Outlander v Kia Sportage

Assembled for this mega-test are 10 models that represent one-third of total SUV volume in Australia – and that’s without including sales for the newest contender here and catalyst for this test, the Jeep Cherokee.

The 2016 Ford Kuga has been given another update for Australia and, while it’s not the recently revealed styling and technology update, buyers at the entry level may be pleased - depending on their priorities, and how soon they buy.

2014 Ford Kuga Review

On a recent trip to the USA I won the Rental Car Lottery. As the attendant at the rental counter handed me the keys I think I may have wet myself a little as I read “2014 Ford Escape” printed on the keyring. Well aware of Fords reputation for outstanding chassis balance, ahead of me lay four hours of tight, twisty roads, crawling up and over Colorado's independence pass from Aspen to Pikes Peak like the Rocky Mountains central nervous system, all without another vehicle in sight...

2015 Ford Kuga Review

Ford's globalisation of its product range has brought the death knell to local product. From Fiestas to Focus or is that Foci? and now Mondeos and Mustangs, the products are a global car on a global platform with one aim, to reduce costs. I recently chose to trade in my trusty Focus XR5 for a Ford Kuga Trend. I chose the 2...

2015 Ford Kuga Titanium (AWD) Review

Warning to all Kuga owners. We thought long and hard about getting our Titanium Kuga Diesel automatic. After three long months of waiting, we had it for a week before it got a flat tyre. That was three weeks ago and we are STILL waiting because there are no Continental 235/45 R19 tyres to fit the vehicle in Australia at the present time and no-one can tell us when they will be coming into the country...

2014 Ford Kuga Titanium (AWD) Review

I enjoy driving this car but have had lots of trouble with the electrical system (radio, rear camera etc) shutting down when the outside temperature gets 'too high' as in over 35 degrees. Ford tells me this happens with all Kugas and that there is no fix for it at this stage. I have also had problems with the sat nav not producing the correct address and having some lag...
