    .............................................................
    This is the all-new Ford Kuga!
    Ford has completely redesigned their mid-size SUV, and they've got competitors like the Peugeot 3008 & Volkswagen Tiguan in their sights! The question is, does it offer enough to stand out from the crowd?
    Starting with the exterior design, it clearly looks very similar to a pumped-up Ford Focus - but that's no bad thing! Not only that, but it comes with a slightly-sloped roofline and real exhaust pipes as well!
    When it comes to engine choices, there are more than enough options available. The petrol range is topped with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol to deliver 150hp, while the diesel range is led with a 2-litre turbo which can put down 190hp! However, the hybrid model trumps them all... With a 2.5-litre petrol engine coupled with an electric motor, it can deliver 225hp and travel up to 35 miles on just electric power alone!
    So it looks good, has got a great range of engines, and with a starting price of just over £24,000, it's affordable as well! So surely it's the must-have family SUV of 2021, right? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

      That roof doesn’t take long... that’s normal speed...

    2. Parth Gupta

      Ford pls launch this in india! It will be a game changer for you

    3. Ian Larman

      I bought a 2021 Kuga. Love it..................But the tow bar electrics don't work!! Factory fitted but Fords won't fix it. Pin 9 not wired. Pin 9 activated my on board safety device for the caravan to prevent swaying and jack knifing, but fords have disabled it. cannot us caravan. Ford say its a design feature, WHAT are you having a laugh. I have a caravan sitting on my drive not able to be used because of you. Ive rejected the vehicle, see what happens now??

    4. Marek STE

      Why did you put an old Tiguan there?😂

    5. Abhishek Jain

      What is the difference between Ford Kuga & Puma??

    6. TheBmw1980

      Hi mat. I notice you did not mention the kuga mild hybrid engines. As I have the new ford Kuga 2.0L diesel mild hybrid. Great video Dan

    7. Alex Paumen

      Over in the USA we call that the Escape. I just feel nauseous every time I see one. Thankfully the MUCH better looking Bronco Sport (on the Escape platform) is putting a stop to that.

    8. mike Butt

      Touch screen looks like it’s been added and stuck on as a last minute extra.......

    9. Mr11ESSE111

      Ford are anther Fiat

    10. Mr Riley

      Had the st line x 2.l awd about a month now. Can't complain so far

    11. Hi.benben benel

      Hello What you recommend me kuga or tiguan (2021)

    12. PELC English Courses

      My 1.5 petrol performed very economically on a mostly uphill 1500km run through Europe - 6.5 litres per 100km. Not as bad as I thought and a damn comfy car to drive.

    13. Sergey MATPOC

      here in America we have optional 2.0t EcoBoost optional

    14. D Momcilovic

      Kia? Peugeot? No Ford. Good job there is a badge as everything looks the same now. Very boring generic designs

    15. Trevor Nonis

      In america this car I called the Escape

    16. Azyxerla

      We call its ford escape

    17. Razvan T

      No, just no. Go to a Ford dealership, get in a Fiesta, then a Puma ST LINE X, and finally, a Kuga ST LINE X. Same interior in almost every way on all 3.

    18. Mr Ed

      Surprised they didn’t call it Probe inline with their recent efforts to rubbish all previous sports cars with the Puma and “Mustang” SUV’s 🤦🏻‍♂️

    19. Speed Demon

      Very nice Ford Escape! :D

    20. Elham Sarwari

      I like Toyota 4runner

    21. Peter Cavellini

      Isn’t Vignale getting dropped ?, Ford say they aren’t selling?

    22. Reet Pateet

      I loved my old Kuga 2.0 diesel. Great to drive and nippy when you need it. Might get the new one at some point, as it does look that bit better!

    23. Олександр Бутенко

      IMO: It's Ford's useless car.

    24. myeviltwinbrother

      I didn't realize it was summer in the UK already.... haha... Clearly an old recording. Perhaps to bring it up in context of the Mustang review.

    25. Justin Bussell

      I don't understand plug in hybrid when some cars use regen to charge

    26. Nala Stoicev

      In our language Kuga means the Plague

    27. thejjzz

      "I respect you for giving us real exhaust pipes" I bet all petrol and diesel cars have real exhausts. Otherwise they wouldn't work.

    28. Metallica Fan!

      I think it looks much better than the Aston Martin DBX.

    29. Chris Caswell

      So impressed with the Plug in hybrid I ordered one last August but it still has not been delivered - shockingly bad customer service from Ford Italy. Really looking forward to its arrival with fantastic panorama roof

    30. Winston W

      It’s Aston Martin DBX

    31. Andrei Damian

      Mat, what is it with you and Monica?

    32. Charlotte Jordan

      The capable cloudy conventionally compare because question concordingly trade up a demonic silica. valuable, humdrum pink

    33. Carl Gibson

      Have they fixed the battery charging problem. Cuz i can't see them on your carwow app...?

    34. julosx

      There will be also an E85 version with the same 2,5 liters engine and hybrid drivetrain by this fall. Very economical for sure !

      1. Derively

        This 2,5 liters engine on it's own gives 33-40 mpg to this Kuga (real world testing). It will be even higher as a hybrid.

    35. addicz2

      Where is the Rider Kick

    36. Hanan R.

      This Kuga looks abnormally small

    37. Peter

      Like the Puma, it's just a raised up hatch back.

    38. Aditya Vikram Nihlani

      This product can do wonders for Ford in India

      Just because you can stick a stick in the exhaust doesn't mean it's real. You should check if the stick is black when you pull it out, because that means smoke was passing through that hole.

    67. What a Day

      Matt said that the soda Qodiak has a boot space of over 700 liters But that’s wrong because that’s a 7 seater and that’s when the back seats are folded down but when they are up it’s much smaller the the kuga’s boot

      1. Iuliu Antonio Filip

        Idk why he is talking about the Kodiaq as if it where Kuga's competition. The direct segment competitor is in fact the Karoq. Perhaps British people are not able to buy that model, but you can't compare the almost 5 m long Kodiaq to a 4.6 m Kuga and expect them to be evenly matched in cargo volume. Also, the Kodiaq is a much more expensive car, starting from 40k Euros with a decent package of car specs, while the Kuga is available with every spec available for this class, with 35-36k Euros. The same specs would push the Kodiaq to nearly 50k.

      man Ford needs to hire a new designer

    73. Metehan Deveci

      I'm usually dislike ford designs but this time it's look really nice

    74. Mikhil Panday

      Please review the Hyundai Venue Sir.

    75. Game Ovais

      Oh good, yet another hideous crossover that they are calling a SUV. I just hope that in a few years when people realise these cars are neither here nor there, will stop buying them forcing the manufacturers to go back to Saloons and Estates. What exactly do crossovers offer that estates don't? You get a better ride, more space and often better economy. You definitely will have a better looking car. If you want even better looking cars that give great handling the saloon is still top of the pile. Of course if you want a city car - then the hatchback will be the way to go.

    76. Martin Charles Pitt-Bradley

      I think thing is the Escape in 🇨🇦 and 🇺🇸, but I also thought the Puma was the Escape’s counterpart. How different in size are these things?

      1. Daniel LeRoux

        This is the Escape in North America

    78. hloniphani ntombela

      i bought 2014 kuga tdci awd titanium and i still love it. there is a lot to love in that car, i love the curve control function. the car came with lots of tech that only became popular now!

    79. Tahsin Faiyaz

      1.5T with 120hp how is tht even possible. cant believe people choose this over focus.

      1. Metallica Fan!

        This is nicer than a Focus. Engine sucks though.

    80. Christopher Smith

      The advertising for Carwow is annoying but the unwillingness to complete the review without having to follow the advertising makes it unwatchable.

    81. Steve Liu

      No thanks. Only good selling Ford vehicle in my country is the 4x4....the rest just crap.

      Hi Mat and team. I'm a proud owner of a 66 plate Titanium X Kuga and would love to see a comparison video of all the Kuga model's from when it first came out. Thank for reviewing realistic car's. 👌

    91. Deenuka Gunawardana

      Mat why don't u race the honda crv with the rav 4 and some other suvs

    92. Cameron Rolle

      I think you should add car start up noise and revs to your reviews matt

    93. DAVID KWON
