When you think of city driving you might think of getting a small city hatchback, however, from a survey of more than 40,000 car owners AutoTrader has awarded the accolade of best city car to an SUV; the Ford Kuga.
With a 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, the Ford Kuga provides low emissions and fuel economy. When you stop at a traffic light or idle in a queue the Ford Kuga will automatically switch off its engine and turn back on when the clutch is engaged, helping to cut fuel consumption by up to 10%.
The Ford Kuga meets the Euro Stage 6 emissions standard. For petrol engines, this means that the vehicle can produce no more than 1.0 g/km of carbon monoxide, 0.10 g/kg of hydrocarbon, 0.06 g/km of nitrogen oxides and 0.005 g/km of atmospheric particulate matter.
With more than 40,000 car owners giving their feedback, the Ford Kuga was judged in 16 key areas, meaning that Auto Traders New Car Award is a great stamp of approval from owners of the Ford Kuga. The Kuga was top rated in comfort and durability and second for reliability.
But don’t just take our word for it, these are some quotes from Ford Kuga owners:
“Drives well and looks good, and not bad on running costs.”
“The feeling of space and comfort inside.”
“I feel very safe and comfortable in it. I also like the way it looks.”
Commenting on the Kuga’s victory in this category, Auto Trader’s Road Test Editor, Ivan Aistrop, said: “Yes, the Kuga isn’t a city car in the eyes of the motoring industry, but what does that matter to owners? The Kuga still has plenty of virtues that make it a pleasure to use in the city. The comfortable ride and flexible engines make it good to drive within the city limits, and there’s enough space inside the car to cope with the urban school run. Families will also appreciate the advanced safety kit available, and the cool connectivity options will appeal to any self-respecting urbanite.”
