REVEALED: New Ford Puma Crossover
Added: 26 June 2019
Ford has unveiled the new Ford Puma - an SUV-inspired compact crossover that fuses stunning exterior design, best-in-class uncompromised load space, and sophisticated mild-hybrid powertrain technology.
The new Ford Puma marks the start of a new chapter in Ford’s design identity. There are charismatic styling cues including distinctive wing-top mounted headlamps and athletic, aerodynamic lines. Compact crossover proportions deliver a raised ride-height and a class-leading luggage capacity of 456 litres.
Powerful, responsive performance and optimised fuel efficiency is delivered for Puma customers using Ford’s EcoBoost Hybrid 48-volt technology. The mild-hybrid powertrain seamlessly integrates electric torque assistance with a low-friction, three-cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to deliver up to 155 PS.
Advanced driver assistance technologies include:
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane Centring, for effortlessly negotiating highway and stop-start traffic.
New Local Hazard Information, which can inform the driver of hazardous situations in the road ahead before they become visible to the driver or vehicle sensors.
Puma is also the first vehicle in its segment to offer hands-free tailgate and Lumbar Massage Seat comfort and convenience technologies.
Commenting on the eye-catching new Ford Puma, Stuart Rowley, president at Ford of Europe said, “Our customers told us they want a compact vehicle with stand-out looks that also delivers solutions for everyday living. The result is our new Ford Puma – charismatic, practical and offering technologies from massage seats to mild-hybrid powertrains.”
The new Puma joins Ford’s expanding line-up of SUV and SUV-inspired crossover models in Europe, including the Fiesta Active, All-New Focus Active, EcoSport, Kuga and New Edge. SUVs now account for more than one in five Ford vehicles sold in Europe, and sales rose more than 19% in 2018.
