In 2019 Ford restarts using the Puma name previously used from 1997 to 2002 for a small three-door sports car that actually has little to do with the new model. In fact, the new Puna is a city SUV ready to compete with cars such as the Volkswagen T-Roc, the Hyundai Kona, and the Fiat 500X. It is easily distinguished by its smooth lines and protruding headlights. Its dimensions are 4.19 x 1.80 meters. This vehicle inherits the structure of the Fiesta MK7, which guarantees excellent resistance: the Puma gets the maximum score in the Euro NCAP crash tests. The practicality of the Puma is already noticeable from the boot: it has a standard capacity of 336 liters, to which are added another 80 liters belonging to a loading surface called “MegaBox” positioned under the standard boot. Inside, the finishes are well cared for, but the large presence of rigid plastics is not very pleasant… Unfortunately, this is a very trendy practice in recent years also in premium vehicles. The infotainment is at an average level for its category and practically identical to that of the Fiesta MK7. The basic engine is a thrifty 95 horsepower EcoBoost, after which you can find intermediate configurations of 120, 125 (also available hybrid), and 155HP up to the 200 horsepower “ST” version that you see in the picture. The latter costs from 33.000€. The Puma’s price is good considering the competition.
