The New Ford Puma Crossover

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Ford is expanding its new Puma and Fiesta Active, Focus Active, EcoSport, Kuga, Edge and new Explorer Plug-In Hybrid crossover product line with SUV and SUV-inspired breeze.

Stylish, sporty and seductive design, the new Ford Puma uses Ford's B-segment platform, but this is complemented by SUV-specific body proportions with increased wheelbase and track width. The Puma uses a low, curved ceiling line for a stunning and completely original silhouette. The shoulder line, which rises from the front to the back and widening backwards, brings a dynamic and powerful appearance. Smooth and flowing lines complement the carefully shaped bumper. The two-piece taillight design in horizontal form not only offers a wider rear view, but also facilitates luggage access and handling.

The new Ford Puma crossover ST-Line and Titanium come in a range of hardware packages, each with a distinctive design, each reflecting a different character.

The Puma Titanium features glossy gray 18-inch alloy wheels with chrome details on the front grille, fog light and side sills. Metallic gray rear diffuser and glossy black glass beads with plate finish complement the exterior design. The leather steering wheel, wooden inserts and fabric door panels provide an attractive appearance and high quality perception in the interior, which has been carefully shaped.

The Puma ST-Line features 18-inch wheels and 19-inch matt black wheels on request. With its specially designed springs and shock absorbers, the sports suspension offers a sporty driving feel, while the ST-Line front grille, matt black design elements, bright trim such as fog light bezel and a larger roof spoiler complete the sporty look. The interior features a flat-bottom steering wheel, leather seats with red stitched detail, alloy pedals and a gear shift knob with aluminum detail.

Developed to meet customer requirements, the Ford MegaBox creates a deep and versatile storage space that can comfortably accommodate two golf bags in an upright position. This additional storage space offers an area of ​​80 liters, 763 mm wide, 752 mm long and 305 mm high. With this space it is possible to put a plant of 115 cm in length in the trunk, for example. Again, this area can be covered and evaluated for placing dirty objects such as muddy boots. The special drain plug makes it easy to clean this area with water.

Advanced engine technologies

The EcoBoost Hybrid technology features an integrated starter/generator (BISG) connected to the 11.5 kW belt in Puma's 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine. This system replaces the traditional alternator (BISG) and uses the wasted energy generated at the time of the brake to charge the air-cooled 48 Volt lithium-ion battery. The system (BISG) also uses the stored energy to activate the three-cylinder petrol engine with additional torque during normal driving and acceleration. The semi-hybrid system is available in two power versions: 125 PS and 155 PS. The hybrid system offers 50% more torque than the petrol engine, especially at lower speeds, thus providing a smoother driving experience.

Thanks to the 50 Nm of torque, the fuel efficiency of the gasoline engine improves by 9 percent compared to the WLTP norm. With the addition of additional torque, the 125 PS version consumes 5.4 liters/100 km of fuel and achieves 124g/km of CO 2 emissions. The 155 PS version consumes 5.6 liters/100 km of fuel and releases 127g/km of CO 2 emissions.

Puma's 125 PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine achieves a fuel consumption of 5.8 liters/100 km and CO 2 emissions of 131 gr/km .
