Kuga ST-Line Joins Ford’s UK Range From £25,845

With design details inspired by Ford Performance models, the Kuga ST-Line will go on sale in the United Kingdom later this year.

Priced from £25,845, which equals to $34,173 on the other side of the Atlantic, the mid-size SUV sets itself apart from the standard models with high-gloss Ebony Black finished upper grille and lower grille with honeycomb design, and matching sports mesh look on the fog lamp bezels.

It also has front skid plate, side skirts, door handles, side mirror caps, door cladding, roof spoiler and wheel arches in body color, black roof rails, high-gloss Ebony Black rear skid plate, tinted lighting units on both ends, privacy glass, ST-Line exterior badging on the front fenders, black beltline beneath the windows and a choice of 18-inch high-gloss black alloy wheels with bright machined surface or 19-inch ones in Ebony Black.

Inside, the unique sport seat design, wrapped in partial leather, with contrast stitching for the seats, gear lever gaiter and steering wheel, along with black headliner and two-layer metallic-effect Deep Space paint on the center console tell users that this isn’t the average Kuga.

Moreover, the Ford Kuga ST-Line benefits from chassis enhancements including a 10 mm lower ride height and thicker anti-roll bars, stiffer suspension and the brand’s Electronic Power Assisted Steering with revised calibration.

The engine lineup will comprise all units currently available on the rest of the Kuga family, including the 120 PS (118 HP) 1.5-liter TDCi, 120 PS (118 HP) 2.0-liter TDCi, 150 PS (148 HP) 2.0-liter TDCi with FWD or AWD and 180 PS (177 HP) 2.0-liter TDCi with AWD. The petrol range includes the 120 PS (118 HP) and 150 PS (148 HP) 1.5-liter EcoBoost with FWD and a 182 PS (179 HP) version that comes with AWD solely.

Joining the 2017 Kuga, whose prices kick off from £20,845 ($27,562), and Ford Kuga ST-Line, will be the Vignale version, which was revealed in pearlescent-metallic Vignale Milano Grigio exterior color, with Cashmere leather trim.
