Barcelona - Ford revealed its refreshed Kuga SUV sporting enhanced tech, design tweaks and a new diesel engine
A rival to the Toyota Rav4, the Kuga benefits from design improvements inside and out.
The Kuga will include Ford’s new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system, driver assistance technologies, an ergonomic interior and a new 88kW 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine.
Advanced Ford technologies include:
• Ford Intelligent All Wheel Drive, which adjusts the amount of torque sent to each wheel, optimising handling and traction especially in slippery conditions.
• Curve Control, which mitigates against loss of control should a driver enter a bend with too much speed.
• Torque Vectoring Control, which enhances the driving experience by applying a small amount of braking to inside wheels to assist traction and stability when cornering.
Ford South Africa did not confirm when the new Kuga would be launched locally.
