Early January will see Ford’s new compact crossover, the Puma, prowl onto the nations forecourts, with prices starting at €24,465.
The new Puma joins Ford’s expanding line-up of SUV and SUV-inspired crossover models in Europe, including the Fiesta Active, Focus Active, EcoSport and Kuga. SUVs now account for more than one in five Ford vehicles sold in Europe, and sales rose more than 19 per cent in 2018.
Powered by Ford’s EcoBoost low-friction, three-cylinder 1.0‑litre petrol engine, coupled to Hybrid 48-volt technology, the Kuga has a CO2 rating of 127g/km.
This all-new car from Ford has a look of its own, with wing-top mounted headlights and aerodynamic lines on the exterior, with some 444 litres of boot space available courtesy of the Ford MegaBox system, which provides a deep, versatile storage space that is capable of comfortably accommodating two golf bags in an upright position.
Commenting on the arrival of the all new Ford Puma in Ireland, Ciarán McMahon, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland, said: “I am sure the new Ford Puma will be a big hit in the Irish market. It is a compact SUV that feels like a much bigger car thanks, in part, to the innovative design of the MegaBox boot area. Then add in the very fuel efficient mild hybrid 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine and you can see why Puma will tick all the boxes for many prospective new car buyers”.
The 2020 new Puma will be offered in three trims: Titanium, ST-Line and ST-Line X.
