Ford Kuga ST-Line – 2016 Bologna Motor Show
I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Sportier and more dynamic Ford Kuga now on sale in Europe.
Along with models from the Ford Performance division, Ford displayed the Ford Kuga ST-Line at the 2016 Bologna Motor Show that ended last week in Italy.
The Ford Kuga ST-Line features sporty styling inspired by Ford Performance models. Exterior features include high-gloss Ebony Black finish upper grille, honeycomb design lower grille in high-gloss Ebony Black with matching sports mesh finish on the fog lamp bezels, high-gloss Ebony Black rear skid plate, black roof rails, tinted headlamps and tail lamps, privacy glass, black beltline beneath the windows and ST-Line badge on front fenders.
The Ford Kuga ST-Line can be specified with new 18-inch high-gloss black alloy wheels with bright machined surface or 19-inch alloy wheels in Ebony Black. Inside, the Kuga ST-Line is specialised with two-layer metallic-effect Deep Space paint, black headliner and unique sport seats in partial leather, and features contrasting stitching for the seats, gear lever gaiter and steering wheel.
The Ford Kuga ST-Line has thicker anti-roll bars and sits 10 mm lower for reduced body roll and sharper responses. It has stiffer suspension bushes, and the spring and damper rates are fine-tuned for improved comfort and performance. The electronic power assisted steering system has been recalibrated for a tighter and sporty feel.
The Ford Kuga ST-Line is available with 120 PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol, 150 PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol, 182 PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol, 120 PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel, 150 PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine options. An all-wheel drive system is available in select configurations.
