DUBLIN, Ireland – Ford’s new Kuga played a key role helping to document National Heritage Week in Ireland recently.
The smart utility vehicle was used by the Heritage Week photographic team as they captured both video and still photographs of the wide range of activities that took place in towns large and small around the country
More than 1,700 were events staged in Ireland from dancing at the crossroads in Cork, prehistoric hunting games in Donegal, touring the tenements of Dublin City, learning about the Wicklow Gold Rush of 1795 to becoming a mini ranger for the day and exploring the wildlife of Clara Bog in Offaly.
Peter Cutler, one of the drivers from the Heritage Week team, said: “Kuga was the ideal vehicle for the job as we had a lot of equipment to transport and high tech touches on the car like the hands-free tailgate which opens by just passing your foot under a sensor were a great help in our work”.
The Heritage Week team drove an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Kuga with a fuel efficient 2.0-litre TDCi Duratorq diesel engine with 140 PS. The vehicle also has great safety credentials having been awarded a maximum five star safety rating by Euro NCAP – it achieved an overall protection score of 88 per cent, the highest-ever for a mid-sized SUV.
