Ford Kuga gets a facelift in Europe after two years, aligning with the U.S. Escape's 2022 refresh.

New look: revamped face with a boxier, SUV-like design, featuring a new grille, headlights, bumper, and hood.

Trim options: Titanium, ST-Line, and Active, each with a unique style and 10mm extra ride height.

ST-Line: Recommended for performance, although it's more about appearance as Ford lacks a genuine Kuga ST model.

Inside upgrade: 13.2-inch touchscreen with Sync4, 5G connectivity, wireless CarPlay, Android Auto, and Alexa Built-in.

Trailer Tow Navigation: New feature helps drivers avoid tricky turns and low bridges.

Engine choices: 148 hp 1.5L EcoBoost base, with hybrid alternatives.

Hybrid options: Two 2.5L versions, 178 hp for front wheels, and 181 hp for all four wheels.

PHEV: 2.5L engine now delivers 240 hp to front wheels, up from 222 hp.

Changes aim to maintain Kuga's appeal and strong sales performance.
