During the past few years, you may have noticed a rapid increase of SUVs on the road. The growing trend has been huge for comfortable and luxurious vehicles that are great for mobility, remote areas, and transporting luggage. SUVs, short for Sports Utility Vehicles are versatile and comfortable with great performance.
Of course, with a growing number of SUVs on the road, there is a lot more choice when it comes to buying one too. This handy guide will help you to choose which Ford SUV is right for you, from personality to everyday use.
Ford EcoSport – The Compact SUV
Both a city and a country person? For the SUV experience in a smaller package, the Ford EcoSport combines the practicality of a utility vehicle with the ingenuity of a saloon model. The EcoSport has an aerodynamic body shape, which not only makes it look sleek and stylish, it also improves fuel efficiency.
The bold and contemporary exterior styling is matched with a spacious interior cabin, which is roomy enough to provide supreme comfort for up to 5 people. The smart and compact design is contrasted with the commanding driving position, which gives the full SUV driving experience, even though it is small enough to easily fit in any parking space. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive offers exceptional handling in changing conditions, perfect for those who alternate between city centres and winding country lanes.
The flexible and quiet interior of the EcoSport is perfect for those who love their tunes, especially as you’ll have Ford SYNC3 and a B&O PLAY sound system, which includes 10 premium speakers for the ultimate audio experience.
Ford Kuga – The Classic SUV
If you’re looking for a timeless SUV, the Ford Kuga is for you. It features all that you’d expect from a utility vehicle, ready and waiting for any journey. The Kuga combines contemporary design with innovative technology for an easier drive. The new model features a refreshed look with a bolder and more luxurious style than ever before.
The bold and sleek exterior is complemented by an intelligent interior, which includes a feature-laden ergonomic dashboard. This includes Ford SYNC3 with an 8” colour screen and DAB audio, which you can use via hands-free voice command. To make your journey easier and safer, it includes safety features such as parking sensors, Blind Spot Information System, and Emergency Assistance.
The Ford Kuga includes a smooth, responsive and lively engine for a highly engaging drive, and it is designed for both performance and efficiency with improved fuel use and lower emissions.
Ford Edge – The Luxe SUV
Our high-end Ford SUV model is ideal for adventure with a highly intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. The All-Wheel Drive comes as standard in the Edge for a smooth ride, whatever the terrain. The upscale Ford Edge delivers premium comfort, combined with driver assistance features such as sophisticated parking technologies, front wide-view camera technology, and Emergency Assistance.
Inside, all of your passengers will be happy in a luxurious and comfortable interior. The deluxe interior design elements include high-end materials and sophisticated detailing, with a stylish piano black finish on the central console. Plus, even if you’re driving on the roughest terrains, you’ll be in for a peaceful drive with Active Noise Control that minimises any unwanted noises inside the cabin.
The Edge offers the ultimate in safety with a full five-star Euro NCAP ration. It features an Intelligent Protection System with Pre-Collision Assist, and Ford Adaptive Steering, which automatically adjusts the steering ratio according to speed, optimising manoeuvrability and precision. Of course, your driving experience will still be spectacular with a powerful and fuel efficient selection of engines.
Ford Ranger – The Do Anything SUV
The Ford Ranger is ideal for ultimate off-road adventures, as well as lugging cargo around. The Ranger has undergone rigorous testing on some of the most challenging terrains, and we’re proud to say that it is capable of handling any journey. Although the Ranger is ideal for transporting your luggage, we’d say it’s the best pick for those who live in remote, rural areas, as there is no driveway or road that it can’t conquer.
The Ranger has a powerful and confident look with stylish streamlining, which looks great and boasts enhanced aerodynamics to save you fuel. It is so comfortable to drive and has ‘Best in Class’ rear leg room, so even the tallest of passengers will be happy. The Ranger also boasts a heated rear windscreen, tinted glass, rear mud flaps and a manually-opening tailgate, which is ideal when your hands are too full to open the boot by hand.
As well as a five-star Euro NCAP, making the Ranger super-safe, the pick-up has an impressively large payload capacity, as it can hold more than 1 tonne within the load box’s 1.8 cubic metre volume. Of course, this is combined with powerful, reliable engines that can see you through the toughest of drives.
