All in all the Kuga is secure, confidence-inspiring and pleasing to hustle along a back road – but we’d stop short of calling it exciting.
Not disastrous, but others are still better
Ford’s warranty lasts for three years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. It’s about the minimum a manufacturer can get away with these days, with others offering much better alternatives, such as the four years you get with a Renault Kadjar, the five years offered on a Toyota Rav4 or Hyundai Tucson, or the seven years supplied with a Kia Sportage.
Ford’s reputation for reliability also took a hit in the latest 2017 JD Power Vehicle Dependability Survey where it came 16th out of the 25 manufacturers included. That put it above Honda, Renault and Citroen, but below Skoda, Seat, Volkswagen and Nissan. In addition, the previous version of the Kuga managed only an average scores in the Warranty Direct Reliability Index based on the frequency and cost of aftermarket warranty claims.
Fuel economy 6/10
A little disappointing compared with the best in class
On paper the Kuga looks reasonably economical; you can expect up to 45mpg from the petrol or 64mpg from the 1.5-litre diesel. In reality we struggled to exceed 35mpg in our petrol Kuga test car, whereas in a Seat Ateca a genuine 45mpg is on the cards. Opt for four-wheel drive or an automatic gearbox and you can expect the Kuga to be thirstier still.
