The New Ford Puma SUV 2019
Ford Puma doesn’t seek your attention – it quietly demands it.
With innovative ‘human-centric’ design, bold SUV exterior styling, and a sophisticated hybrid powertrain:
Ford has revealed the new Ford Puma, a compact crossover that is set to rival cars like the SEAT Arona and Fiat 500X
The Ford brand previously made public that every one of its models launched after the all-new Ford Focus onwards would include a choice of an electrified option. Ford customers will be among the first to experience the Puma's mild-hybrid architecture.
New Ford Puma SUV - coming soon
The Ford Puma has a range of innovative features designed to improve your driving pleasure. Such as Selectable Drive Modes and Ford Co-Pilot360, an impressive set of assistance technologies working together to help manage acceleration, braking, and even steering.
The EcoBoost Hybrid technology boosts the Puma’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with an 11.5 kW belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG). Replacing the standard alternator, the BISG permits recovery and storage of energy generally lost during braking and coasting to charge a 48‑volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack.
Available in 125PS and 155PS variants, the mild-hybrid system frequently monitors how the vehicle is being used to determine when and how extensively to charge the battery.
The 125PS variant will have CO2 emissions from 124g/km and for the 155PS variant.
Buyers can also opt for the 125PS EcoBoost without the mild-hybrid system. A diesel variant will be available later in the year too.
From launch, the Puma will be available in sporty ST-Line trim and the more luxurious Titanium. The interior is carried over from the Fiesta but Ford says it has made a number of enhancements to give the Puma a more luxury feel.
A large boot aids practicality, with 456 litres of boot space plus a Megabox feature that can be used to carry unstable items, such as golf clubs, in an upright position.
The new Puma joins and bolsters Ford’s ever-increasing line up of SUV and SUV-influenced crossover models in Europe, including the Fiesta Active, Focus Active, EcoSport, Kuga, Edge, and the all-new Explorer Plug-In Hybrid. SUVs now account for more than 1 in 5 Ford vehicles sold in Europe, and sales increased more than 19% in 2018.
The Ford Puma will go on sale at the end of the year and will be produced at Ford’s Craiova Assembly Plant, Romania, following almost €1.5 billion investment since 2008.
The New Ford Puma will be available December 2019
