There have been revised almost all of the techniques used and widely improved. The sportiness of the new Kuga stands externally particularly visible, and the impression is confirmed later in the driving range.
The convenience benefits of the new Kuga is one of the exceptionally quiet interior. Ride, wind and road noise could be reduced significantly by consuming improvements in detail. It faces recurrent situations in which you could almost believe you drive an electric car, or in hybrid mode.
The progress are also due to the use of special measuring methods with elliptical acoustic mirrors with which the experts have tracked by Ford external noise and vibration sources and eliminated.
The improvements in the space just as impressive as the revised design of the passenger compartment and the controls of the driver. Also the use of new materials in the interior of the vehicle now evaluates the Kuga.
The luggage compartment is waiting for with an improved accessibility. Especially practical: the electrically operated tailgate can now be opened via a sensor in the bumper, and then closed again. Here we see the brilliant advantage that objects can not be invited to be made just before the opening of the tailgate down.
The trunk itself is characterized by an increase in storage capacity of 46 liters, the split rear seat backs can be folded down with one hand and then give a flat load floor. Thus, a load volume of 481 liters, with 5-seater configuration and to 1653 liters with rear seats folded down and loading is up to the roof edge.

Principle has to be said that even the basic trend is very comprehensive and includes the most important driver assistance systems. The variant increases Titanum these designs with further assistance systems, climate control, alloy wheels, leather interior and much more.
