ALL-NEW 4X4 KUGA OFFERS PEACE OF MIND MOTORING WITH LEADING FIVE-STAR EURO NCAP RATING
Posted on 24 Apr 2013
Businesses across the region are taking advantage of a new sports utility vehicle available at Jennings Ford.
The all-new Ford Kuga is on display and available to test drive at the group’s Eslington Park dealership in Gateshead.
Standing out from the traditional SUV models currently on the market, Ford’s all new Kuga has been re-engineered from the ground up. The latest model which comes with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines, is longer and boasts a more spacious interior than its predecessor.
The all-new mid-sized 4x4 from Ford is also 25 per cent more efficient, in addition to being the safest car in its class.
Available with the 1.6 EcoBoost engine with 150PS, 6-speed Manual and 180PS with 6-speed Auto, both engines deliver plenty of power even in difficult off-road conditions and fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced thanks to Ford’s ECOnetic technologies.
With a new bold look, including 96 litres more boot space, the new Kuga offers a selection of new features, including a kick-operated tailgate, which makes opening the boot with your hands full a very easy operation. By sweeping your foot under the rear bumper, a bleep lets you know the system is engaged and that you have two seconds to stand back before the gate lifts. A simple push of the boot lid button reverses the process. Other features include blind spot warning and self-parking.
An intelligent All-Wheel Drive system adapts to terrain and conditions in an instant, Active City Stop automatically applies the brakes at low speed to prevent a collision and Ford SYNC service reads out text messages and gives you hands-free control of your music, calls and much more.
Awarded five-star safety ratings by Euro NCAP, the new Kuga also boasts SYNC infotainment with Emergency Assistance.
The all-new Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCi Zetec 2WD (140 PS) model is available from Jennings Ford for as little as £220 (excluding VAT) per month with Contract Hire. Specification includes Intelligent Protection System, radio/cd with 6 speakers and remote audio controls, electronic stability programme, electric heated door mirrors, keyless start, air conditioning, 17” 5-spoke alloy wheels, ‘Quickclear’ windscreen and front fog lights.
Rob Chapman, local business executive at Jennings Ford in Gateshead, said; “The all-new Kuga is more spacious than its predecessor, it’s great to drive and boasts a classy feeling cabin. Businesses looking to purchase the model for fleet or company car purposes can take advantage of improved fuel and CO2 emissions thanks to Ford’s ECOnetic advanced technologies.”
