2017 Ford Kuga update revealed

By Ryan Lewis, 25 Feb 2016 Car News

2017 Ford Kuga update revealed

Ford has issued images of the facelifted Kuga SUV that could be coming to Australia as soon as this year.

Featuring styling updates from every angle, the freshened-up Kuga has a look more closely resembling its larger siblings Ranger and Everest, thanks largely to the new front grille.

The front end features a reshaped front bumper with new foglights, and new headlights with built-in daytime running lamps. At the back, Ford has altered the Kuga’s tailgate by trimming down the revised, LED taillights and refining the handle design.

Interior changes are limited to the new three-spoke steering wheel, and an update to the latest Sync 3 infotainment system. Other new tech featured in the Kuga includes a parking assistant for parallel and 90-degree spots.

Ford’s ‘MyKey’ functionality will also make its way into the Kuga. This system allows parents to give younger drivers their own key which limits top speed and restricts Bluetooth calling.

Details of the Australian release are yet to be detailed, but with a European launch scheduled for the near future, the refreshed Ford Kuga could be in local showrooms by the end of the year.
