Kuga nipped and tucked for 2016

Ford took the wraps off its heavily facelifted Kuga in Barcelona recently.

The styling changes include a larger grille, revised headlamps and taillights, and a selection of new 17- to 19-inch alloy wheels.

It will come as standard with Ford’s updated Sync 3 system, but the big news is the addition of a 1,5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine in front-wheel drive format.

The facelifted Kuga will go on sale in Europe in September, but no release date for SA has been set.
