Ford today announced a strikingly-styled and highly-specified new version of the sleek and spacious Kuga SUV.

The new Kuga Graphite Tech Edition ¹ introduces Ford’s head-turning Grey Matter exterior colour option to the Kuga line-up for the first time, and features as standard the SUV’s most in-demand advanced driver assistance systems ² for ultimate convenience whether parking hands-free in town or automatically keeping pace with traffic on the highway.

The distinctive new variant also offers customers a choice from the full range of Kuga powertrains including the Kuga Plug-In Hybrid ¹ – the best-selling PHEV in Europe in 2021 and 2022 ³ – as well as Kuga Hybrid, EcoBlue diesel and EcoBoost petrol variants.

Manufactured at Ford’s assembly facility in Valencia, Spain, the Kuga Graphite Tech Edition is available to order in markets across Europe from today, with first customer deliveries from June.

Grey Matter for smart buyers

Grey is on trend with car buyers in Europe, accounting for 27 per cent of new car sales as the most popular colour choice in the region in 2022. ⁴ Available within the Kuga line-up only for the Kuga Graphite Tech Edition, Grey Matter delivers a bold contrast with the model’s exclusive multi-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black.

The new variant also delivers as standard the Styling ST-Line Pack, comprising a large rear spoiler and red-painted brake callipers for the exterior, as well as alloy pedals and scuff plates inside – combining for sporty appeal. Customers also have the option to specify the Black Package, which delivers striking black finishes for the gloss mirror caps, front fascia vents and rear spoiler – as well as 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels.

Driver assistance as standard

Almost 50 per cent of all new Kugas in 2022 were ordered with the Driver Assistance Pack, up from 40 per cent in 2021. The suite of technologies is designed to make driving less demanding with systems that can automatically keep pace with highway traffic, warn of vehicles in the driver’s blind spot, automatically adjust the maximum speed according to posted speed signs, enable hands-free parking manoeuvres and more.

Also standard is the Technology Pack, helping drivers see the road clearly with LED headlamps that can automatically limit glare for other road users, and a fighter jet-style head-up display that helps drivers keep their eyes on the road by placing information such as vehicle speed and navigation instructions in their line of vision.

Kuga Driver Assistance Pack - Front camera; Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Sign Recognition (with Stop & Go for EcoBlue automatics); Blind Spot Information System (BLIS); Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA); driver impairment monitor; Active Park Assist (Active Park Assist ² for EcoBlue automatics where the vehicle controls accelerator, gearshift and braking); door edge guards
