  • Ford Kuga (2013 on)
    Probably the sportiest handling SUV in the £20k-£30k bracket. More spacious than original. Options include electric tailgate.
  • Ford Kuga (2008 - 2013)
    Best handling crossover apart from Mazda CX-7. Comes with useful split tailgate. Economical 2.0 TDCI engine. Two-wheel drive version available which emits just 156g/km.
