The New Ford Puma Crossover Is Tiny, Weird-Looking, and Probably Coming to the U.S. The outside is adorned with an athletic front fascia featuring an inverted trapezoid front grille framed by new 9012 led bulb low beam conversion kit with LED daytime running lights. Stepping inside, the new Everest is surprisingly spacious with more room offered to each occupant along with a generous cargo space of up to 2,010 liters with folded second- and third-row seats. Besides, the SUV comes exclusively with the latest Ford’s SYNC in-car connectivity.
A panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, a B& sound system, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and a wi-fi hotspot are available, and the Puma can even be had with massaging front seats. There are also plenty of safety features as part of Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, evasive steering assist, automated emergency braking, parking assist, and a feature called Local Hazard Information that provides real-time notifications of things such as road closures.
Moving inside, the interior is Fiesta-familiar until you get to the rear. The Puma crossover proportions offer a bit more space in the boot – 456 liters (16.1 cubic feet) all total with the trick lower boot floor removed and the rear seats still up. This rectangular drop-down section beneath the floor in the Puma’s backside has multiple configurations, and it features a drain hole for easy cleanup. The floor stows behind the seatbacks for maximum space, or the Puma can function as a typical hatchback with the flat floor in-place and the rear seats folded. It may not be a suave compact coupe, but this new Puma does have some rather convenient features.
Other features include standard hands-free tailgate and a premium B& Sound system. A wireless smartphone charging pad is under the instrument panel, and the Ford Puma Titanium X has SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system. Ford fits the Titanium X with dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, and rear parking sensors.
This all-new engine replaces the 1.6-liter EcoBoost with the same power, but with improved economy. The engine comes equipped with either Ford-Getrag’s Durashift B6 manual gearbox or with a new Torque Converter automatic (6F35) available on the Focus for the first time. In the Focus, it is available with 177 hp (132 kW) and 240 N⋅m (177 lb-ft) of torque, the only engine on offer in the Australian Trend, Sport and Titanium models.
The New Ford Puma Crossover Is Tiny, Weird-Looking, and Probably Coming to the U.S. Once upon a time, the Ford Puma prowled the streets of Europe as a small, smartly styled front-wheel-coupe. Now, the moniker returns – again for the European theater – as a small, smartly styled compact crossover. That may or may not impress fans of the original runabout, but it is certainly a sign-of-the-times in which we live. And with Ford’s current design language in full effect inside and out, it’s arguably not without some swagger.
