The new Ford Kuga will have brought huge sighs of relief at the car maker’s local HQ.
The second-generation Ford Kuga is virtually guaranteed to become a more significant player against an impressive array of famous and popular nameplates such as the Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and Nissan X-Trail.
A $27,990 sticker for the entry-level Kuga Ambiente (above) is a good starting point, as is a prominent integrated advertising spot on TV’s The Voice and some headline items of technology.
For the latter, we’ll kick off – literally – with an automatic tailgate that opens and closes if you flick your leg beneath the rear bumper.
It may sound like a gimmick, but it’s unquestionably useful for any owner (with the keyfob on their person) who is approaching their Kuga with both hands busy holding bags or other items.
