Forget Brave Ground being colour of the year for 2020, it’s all about the exclusive Mean Green that coats the striking new Ford Puma ST. Okay, so it’s actually so much more than the devilish exterior colour; with power and ST execution combining to elevate the small SUV into a performance SUV.


• New Ford Puma ST delivers 200 PS, 6.2 second 0-62mph, unique-in-segment mechanical LSD option and drive modes from Eco to Track for ultimate versatility
• First Ford Performance SUV in Europe features bespoke chassis: 40 per cent stiffer twist-beam than Fiesta ST counters higher centre of gravity, force vectoring springs support agility
• Bold sports styling in exclusive Mean Green, 19-inch alloys and Recaro seats feature beside innovative Ford MegaBox for best-in-class loadspace and Local Hazard Information

Exclusive Mean Green Colour for the Puma ST


The Puma ST is powered by the same engine in the award-winning Fiesta ST; a 200 PS 1.5 litre EcoBoost engine that delivers 0-62mph acceleration in 6.7 seconds. Combining the unrivalled performance of an ST with much-desired practicality of an SUV. Additionally, innovative features compel an aggressive and distinctive style including; a MegaBox to increase boot capacity by 80ltrs and power-foldable door mirrors that project the ST logo onto the ground when unlocking.

Exclusively available in Mean Green, the interior is equally as devilishly. Heated, bolstered Recaro sports seats; embossed with the ST logo and finished in grippy Miko Dinamica material, hold the driver and front passenger firmly in place. Whilst standard FordPass Connect modem technology allows Puma ST owners to remotely control a selection of vehicle features; including Door Lock Unlock and Vehicle Locator, via the FordPass mobile app.

Enhanced with sophisticated Sports Technologies including a unique-in-segment limited-slip differential (LSD) option and patented force vectoring springs, Puma ST also features selectable Drive Modes including Sport mode and, for the first time on a Ford Performance vehicle, Eco mode.

Driving modes to suit your mood


Selectable Drive Modes are key to the Puma ST’s versatility. From a Track mode that configures the performance SUV for maximum fun-to-drive to Eco mode, offered for the first time on an ST model, Drive Modes alter Puma ST’s character to suit scenario or mood.

• In Normal mode, engine mapping, traction control, electronic stability control (ESC), active exhaust valve and electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) are configured to deliver natural responsiveness and a connected feel
• In Eco mode, engine mapping and throttle response are configured for maximum fuel efficiency
• In Sport mode, engine mapping and throttle pedal response are sharpened, and EPAS settings adjusted to deliver more feedback and finer control for fast road driving. The active noise control valve opens to intensify the sporty exhaust note. Sport mode is accessible immediately using a dedicated button on the steering wheel
• In Track mode, all vehicle dynamics features are tuned for the fastest possible lap times, traction control is disabled, and ESC interventions are set to a wide-slip mode for the purest driving experience
