2020 Ford Puma ST spied

The Ford Puma ST crossover has been spied undergoing testing in Germany. Although the prototype has camouflage all over its body, the ST looks like it will have a unique front bumper treatment. It also features dual exhaust tips at the back, and a restyled diffuser-style element. The plastic protectors for the wheel arches also look a little broader and chunkier than the ones fitted to standard Puma models.
