Go the distance, and then some
The more time we can put between you and your next visit to the fuel pump the better. The Kuga’s fuel-saving technology and design
ensure every single drop of fuel takes you further. So you can drive more and refuel less.
with 6–Speed SelectShift
EcoBoost engine turn traditional petrol engine thinking on its head. It delivers small engine fuel economy and big engine power in one. So you don’t have to compromise on either, thanks to an advanced combination of twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), turbocharging and direct fuel injection technologies.
To fully enjoy the engine’s responsiveness, the 6-speed SelectShiftTM automatic transmission lets you switch to ‘manual mode’ so you can work the gears – without the clutch.
TDCi with PowerShift
Our 2.0L TDCi diesel engine works with our 6-speed PowerShift automatic transmission to deliver performance and fuel economy. Dual-clutch technology gives you the responsiveness of a manual with the ease of an automatic. It pre-selects the next gear so each change is so smooth it’s barely noticeable.
Active Grille Shutter
Another way we reduce aerodynamic drag is the Active Grille Shutter. Located behind the grille, the shutter only opens when the engine needs cooling and closes when it doesn’t, so less air travels through the radiator. Less drag means less fuel is required to propel the car forward.
Even if you could improve your fuel economy by 4% and 10%1, could you really be bothered turning your engine off every time you come to a standstill at lights or in traffic? Of course not. So the Kuga does it for you - automatically.
