The Kuga is Ford's entrant in the ?RAV 4 market? alongside cars such as the VW Tiguan, the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Qashqai. It's a head turner and its practical.
The Kuga is based on the sublime chassis of the Mk2 Focus and out handles any of the competition. Most have high equipment levels too. The only drawback is no 7 seat option.
The vast majority of Kugas sold are fitted with the 2.0 diesel engine. It's very good but there are some 2.5 turbo petrols in the market which are slightly cheaper and very well 'specced.?
As with all Fords there are some pretty silly trim names to decipher. Titanium is all bells and whistles and is a bit much. Mid range Zetec is fine as all the cars are well equipped.
Pay £15,000 for a 3 year old 2.0D Zetec with no more than 30,000 miles on the clock. A nearly new 2.5 turbo petrol in Titanium trim will start at around £20,000 with similar miles.
The Kuga loses a lot of value in the first 3 years. After that depreciation will be steady. Buy at 3 years old with the first MOT done.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Ford Kuga you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 6 years old.
Diesel Ford Kuga cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Ford Kuga cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Diesel Ford Kuga cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
