Hi, I have never taken mine seriously off road, but a friend works for the Ford Training Centre in Daventry and they got some early models and the guys that brought them over from Germany took them off road and my friend was very impressed.
At the end of the day, Ford have never advertised the Kuga as a serious off-roader so bearing that in mind, the reports indicate that she doesn't disapoint, even with standard road tyres.
Belo, use the search function.
there are already a lot of topic about the fuel consumption.
I have driven 2300km now and it still uses around 8,2l/100km (34-37mpg).
Some people say it gets better in time, but I am driving it quite easy now because it is new and I know I will be accellerating and driving faster in the future, so I have my doubts and it even could get worse.
The high fuel consumption, is that because it's AWD? My new Fiesta started at around 60 mpg but as dropped to 55mpg, it's mileage is 1,700. I hope it's economydoes improve with the mileage going up. The Kuga that is!!! Do you still love your Kuga?
Mine (Titanium) has now done just over 8000 miles. I drive 70 miles to work each day (and 70 miles home!) down the M4.
I am getting just over 39 mpg doing around 75 mph average. I have tried going slower - it makes no difference. I would love to know how one achieves this 52 mpg extra urban they claim! At least with my Renault Scenic I got what they claimed based on their extra urban mpg!!!
From what I ve heard and read propably the average consuption is around 36-39mpg. Not bad but I would prefer the Ford's figures. Thank youall, for your help.I can't wait to receive my own KUGY and have new results....
