New Ford Kuga 2024 engines

El Ford Kuga just renewed with aesthetic and equipment improvements and with some other changes regarding the mechanics. In this way, the compact SUV born in Almussafes intends to continue fighting in its category, where it continues year after year to be crowned the best-selling plug-in hybrid in all of Europe.

Abroad, The most notable change is in the grille., more stylized and where we now find the blue oval that distinguishes everything Ford. In addition, a new LED strip runs along the upper part of the grille, joining both full LED modules to give an even more modern and technological touch to the front of this new Kuga.

Also new are the bumpers, wheel designs (with sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches) and Active and Active X finishes, which are added to the range for those who want a more rugged image of the Kuga. Compared to the ST Line and ST Line

Inside, each equipment level will have exclusive upholstery: fabric in the basic and mixed, fabric and imitation leather, in the X with the Active or ST Line logos. Of course, all will share a customizable digital instrumentation with a 12,3-inch screen and a central touch screen with the magnificent 4-inch SYNC13,2 infotainment system. Added to this is the wireless charger, the USB type C ports or the driving mode selector with the usual Eco, Normal, Sport and Slippery (in the Active versions an additional Track mode is added.)

More space and more trunk

The color palette incorporates the new Desert Island Blue and Bursting Green and therefore, with Agate Black, Solar Silver, Frozen White and Lucid Red, they make a total of six shades for the bodywork. Of course, only the green one will be free. The white one costs about 360 euros; black and silver, about 730 euros; and blue and red, 1.039.

Although the 4,62 meters in length do not vary (yes, the figure is a few centimeters higher in the Active due to the difference in the bumpers), the space improves a little, especially in the rear, with up to 1.035 mm for the legs and up to 536 liters in the best case for the trunk. Now, if we have one thing we will not have the other, because it will depend on how we have the stools configured (they slide horizontally up to 15 cm.)

Four versions; three, electrified

With regards to mechanical range, we have an access option with a 1.5 Ecoboost gasoline engine, 150 HP and C label to which a six-speed manual gearbox is associated, a conventional hybrid option with Eco label and 180 or 183 HP, depending on whether we acquire it with traction front or total; and a plug-in hybrid with a 0 Emissions label that is positioned as the top of the range with 243 HP and about 60-70 km of electric range.

The two electrified Kugas, which now they give a little less power Compared to the previous ones due to a readjustment in the WLTP measurement method, they share a 2.5 Duratec Atkinson cycle engine and, in the case of the plug-in and the HEV 4×4, they debut an optimized HF55 transmission with which they can drag more two tons on trailer.

How much does the Ford Kuga hybrid spend?

Precisely with that 183 HP hybrid Kuga and intelligent electronic drive AWD We had a brief contact during its national presentation in which we took the opportunity to check what average consumption it was capable of offering in somewhat extreme conditions. To do this we left from Alcobendas, in Madrid, and headed to La Granja de San Ildefonso, in Segovia, passing through Colmenar Viejo, Cerceda and facing the port of Navacerrada.

Average consumption was set at 5,2 l/100 km, which is not bad at all considering that it approves 5,8 l, but it is also true that the type of driving we did was very focused on using as little fuel as possible. Even so, carrying out more normal driving during the same route, the result would have been only 1-1,5 l/100 km more, which means that, indeed, with really good performance and with the extra weight added by all-wheel drive, you can still have fairly tight consumption without having to pay the extra for plug-in hybridization or without considering diesel in the catalog.
