MADRID, Spain – New Ford Kuga bas been crowned “SUV of The Year” by Spanish publication Motor Mundial.
Kuga defeated rivals including new Peugeot 2008 and Suzuki SX Cross to collect the coveted award, with judges particularly impressed by its safety technologies and fun driving dynamics.
Motor Mundial reports: “Ford made inroads into the category with the first Kuga, a very popular model with a stunning design and excellent off-road capabilities.
