Ford adds sporty ST-Line models to Kuga range

After applying the same treatment to the Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo earlier this year, Ford is giving buyers of its mid-sized SUV the option of a version that looks and feels sportier.

  • ST-Line models have bolder styling and a sportier drive
  • Follows on from ST-Line versions of Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo
  • On sale from September 1st, priced from £25,845
Ford has announced the addition of ST-Line models to its Kuga SUV range. Like the equivalent models in the Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo ranges, these offer a sportier look and feel than the regular models.

Visually, the ST-Line cars stand out from other Kugas thanks to styling that has been inspired by Ford’s Performance models. The differences include an upper grille and honeycomb lower front grille finished in high-gloss black, with a matching mesh finish on the fog lamps. The front skid plate, side-skirts, mirror caps, door handles, rear spoiler and wheelarches are body coloured, while the rear skid plate and roof rails are black.

Buyers have a choice of unique new 18- or 19-inch black alloy wheels, while the cabin features a bespoke design of part-leather sport seat, with contrasting stitching for the seats, gear lever and steering wheel. Last, but not least, there’s also metallic-effect paint on the centre console and a black roof lining.

To complement the new looks, the car sits 10mm lower than regular Kugas, and many parts of its suspension and steering have been revised to create what Ford says is the sportiest-driving Kuga yet.

ST-Line trim will be available with the full range of Kuga engines, including the new 1.5-litre turbodiesel that is expected to have CO2 emissions of just 115g/km. On top of that, buyers will also have the option of both two- and four-wheel drive.

The new models go on sale on September 1st, and prices start at £25,845, some £5000 more than the most basic Kuga.
