Cornering what Ford calls an ‘SUV-inspired Crossover’ market. The all new redesigned Puma has ripping technology, diversity, functionality, while still retaining some key features from the 90’s.

Engines and Tech Spec

Ford offer both Petrol and MHEV Hybrid/petrol engines. All engines are 1.0Litre offering 125ps and 155ps for a more powerful drive, attracting a 7 speed dual clutch auto gearbox, with mild hybrid technology. The all new Ford Puma innovation originates from the 1.0Litre EcoBoost petrol engine and has been adapted to produce Fords latest MHEV. The alternator is replaced with an 11.5Kw integrated starter/generator which Ford call ‘BISG’. The technology is designed to restore energy within a small lithium-ion battery when coasting or braking; or assist when accelerating which has proven to be very responsive.

We’ve heard Ford are due to launch an alternative engine to join the 125ps and 155ps MHEV. Rumour has it, the 1.5 litre engine will satisfy diesel enthusiasts.


Size and Comfort

Times have changed since the original Puma took the market by storm back in 1997. Ford certainly listened to their audience. Increasing the size and capturing the Crossover/SUV market while basing the model off the nation’s most popular car of years, the Fiesta.
