It's always exciting to be a Ford dealer, but when they scoop up awards in both WhatCar? and BestBuy, its even more thrilling!
Aug 20, 2021
It’s always exciting being a Ford dealer and discovering the new features of functions of the Ford range. We love it! However, it’s always extra exciting to be a Ford dealership when the cars that we have in our showrooms are nominated for, and subsequently win the prestigious WhatCar? awards.
Puma has been awarded What Car?’s Small SUV of the Year, while the hotly-anticipated Puma ST takes Sports SUV of the Year. The third award, Pick Up of the Year, has gone to the best-selling Ford Ranger.
“Nothing ticks all the boxes quite like the Puma” said Steve Huntingford, Editor, What Car? “Compact yet practical, sporty yet efficient, stylish yet affordable… it’s rare that a car can genuinely combine all these virtues, but the Ford Puma does.”
With a glowing review like that, it’s not a surprise that the Ford Puma and the ST line of the Puma won small SUV of the Year, and sports SUV of the year respectively!
Since Puma’s launch at the end of 2019 around 27,000 units have been sold, making the Puma the 9th best selling car last year! The ST Line joined the family in 2020 and added the desirable premium styling, enhanced spec as well as an unrivalled driving experience.
The Ford Ranger.
The Ford Ranger scooped up the WhatCar? Pick up of the year award. The Ranger is a timeless design that combines practicality with style and accounts for more than one in three of ever pick up sale in the UK! The Ranger adds to it’s street appeal with a wide range of accessories to customise the Ranger such as LED tail lamps, LED spot beam light bars to wading snorkels and engine undershields!
“If you’re after maximum convenience in your truck, the Ford Ranger is the one to go for” said Steve Huntingford, Editor, What Car? “It’s got all the functionality and hard-working nature that defines a great pick-up, but it’s finished for real comfort and ease of use. Our winner is a pick-up to enjoy in life, as well as work”.
In the “Best Buy” awards this year, the Fiesta took home Best Small Car whilst the Focus won Best Family Car to Drive, the Kuga Hybrid was named the best lug-in hybrid for long distances, and if you thought that was it the ever popular Ford Galaxy was crowned the best MPV for large families and the iconic Fiesta ST took away the best-value hot hatch award!
