augnewskugaA new global colour called Ginger Ale announced the arrival of the latest version of Ford’s best-selling Kuga SUV. Apparently Ginger Ale has a ‘subtle green hue to reflect its active outdoor capabilities’. You couldn’t make this up, could you – well, actually someone obviously has. More useful is the hands-free automatic tailgate lift and rear seats that fold flat at the touch of a button, and gives the vehicle an increased luggage capacity of 82 litres – a development that seems highly sensible for a family car like the Kuga. Ford’s voice-activated in-car connectivity system SYNC is also now available on the Kuga. This features the Emergency Assistance option, which enables SYNC to help occupants place a call to the emergency services directly in the event of an accident. The new Kuga will be on sale in the UK by the end of the year.
