COLOGNE, Germany – Ford Puma has scooped a prestigious Golden Steering Wheel from Bild am Sonntag and Auto Bild in Germany.
Puma came top in the Small SUV Category-- 44 years after Fiesta received the first ever Golden Steering Wheel. The award is highly coveted in Germany.
A jury made up of racing drivers, journalists and TV presenters, and Auto Bild and BAMS readers found that Puma “does not afford any weakness". They also praised Puma’s space, clarity, boot, chassis, seats and operating concept.
Gunnar Herrmann, Chairman of Ford of Germany, said: “Our new Ford Puma not only has a mega box, but now also a mega prize – a great award. Of course, the golden steering wheel does not stay in the mega-box of the Ford Puma ST but is now going on tour as a thank you for the teams involved in the development and as motivation for our dealers.”
