New 2020 Ford Puma To Make Official Debut

Ford has revived its Puma badge on an SUV (not on a coupe as it was previously used on). The new 2020 Ford Puma will have a price that sits lower than £20,000, but it will slide in between the EcoSport and the Kuga in the brand’s SUV range.

The Puma will make its official debut during the Frankfurt Motor Show in September so until then, the prices are purely speculative though we don’t think the brand will go far from £20,000. The new SUV is going to compete with the likes of the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur, and the Peugeot 2008.

Seventeen years ago, the Puma was a svelte coupe that was based on the design language of the Fiesta. For the 2020 Puma, Ford is again using the supermini’s platform though this model is equipped with a five-door SUV body that’s 46mm longer, 54mm higher, 71mm wider, and has a 95mm longer wheelbase than the Fiesta.

The front has Ford’s distinctive grille, which is the only thing that it shares with the other SUVs in the range. The headlights on the bonnet are based on the original Puma while the daytime running lights on the ST-Line models are similar to the GT supercar.

Inside, imagine Fiesta’s dashboard—simple design, SYNC3 infotainment system, and pretty decent materials all around. The digital display for the dials peaks out, as well as the massaging front seats that other trim models have. The front and rear seats have removable covers that will allow owners to mix and match patterns and colors.

The boot size stands at 456 liters, which is on par with the best in the segment. The load bay floor can be raised to create a flat cargo area. It can also be lowered to give more space. When folded against the back of the seats, it expands the Puma’s cargo capacity further.

Initially, the Puma will be offered in Zetec, Titanium and ST-Line trims. Ford’s 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox will be the main unit.
