Hot Car Deal – Ford Kuga£3,000 savings on the already good value Ford Kuga

IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.

The latest Ford Kuga went on sale earlier this year with lower prices and more equipment than before, yet we've already found large discounts on this popular model.

With more kit and slashed prices, the new Ford Kuga is an attractive choice if you're looking for a spacious but affordable crossover with the option of four-wheel drive. Based on the Ford Focus, the Kuga is bigger and more fuel efficient than before, and despite its slightly plain styling, it is a refined and versatile vehicle for families.

Buyers have a choice between turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engines and a brace of 2.0-litre diesels. The most frugal is the two-wheel drive 140bhp diesel, which provides a good blend of performance and economy with an official fuel economy figure of 53.3mpg and a 0-62mph time of 10.6 seconds. Thanks to its increase in size, there is a reasonable amount of space for rear passengers, and the boot is larger than before too.

Four-wheel-drive Ford Kuga with £3,191 saving

Our favourite Kuga is the more powerful diesel model in Titanium specification. This version is well equipped and has a responsive 163bhp engine under the bonnet plus four-wheel drive so you can keep driving through winter snow and on slippery surfaces. The Kuga 2.0 TDCi 163 Titanium is currently available from Nationwide Cars for just £22,624 – saving you over £3,000 on the list price.

This four-wheel drive model officially returns 47.9mpg, which is identical to the less powerful four-wheel drive diesel, and accelerates to 62mph in 9.9 seconds. Titanium specification includes a raft of equipment, such as a digital radio, automatic headlights and wipers, part leather seats, dual zone air conditioning, a heated front windscreen and cruise control.

Economical diesel Ford Kuga for £19,395

If you want the cheapest Kuga to run, the two-wheel drive 2.0 TDCi 140 Zetec should consume little fuel and be kind to your wallet thanks to its £19,395 price tag – a discount of £2,820. This model officially returns 53.3mpg and provides similar performance to the more powerful diesel above, as it does without the heavy four-wheel drive system.

In Zetec trim, the Kuga features a digital radio, heated front windscreen, cruise control, manual air conditioning, electric front and rear windows, plus hill start assist, which holds the brakes for you while you release the clutch. 

Well-equipped petrol Ford Kuga for under £20,000

If you don’t cover many miles and prefer petrol power, you can pick up a Kuga 1.6 EcoBoost Titanium for £19,984. This petrol model has two-wheel drive and is relatively economical, officially achieving 42.8mpg. The engine is also strong enough to cope with a full load, powering the Kuga to 62mph in 9.7 seconds. With Titanium specification, the Kuga includes all the same equipment as the 2.0 TDCi 163 Titanium above for a substantially lower price thanks to a £2,431 discount from Nationwide Cars.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:

  • The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document. 
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
