Ford Puma pricing
Ford Ireland has confirmed that the Puma crossover will go on sale here from January, with prices starting at €24,465.
The Ford Puma will come in Titanium, ST-Line and ST-Line X specifications; yes, that's right, the Titanium X model that was shown at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show doesn't look to be making it to these shores.
As per Ford's intention to have half of its European car sales electrified by 2022, the only engine confirmed so far is the mild-hybrid (MHEV) enhanced 1.0-litre, three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol turbo unit, which delivers 125hp. If you want this as a Titanium, it'll cost from €24,465 and will come with 17-inch alloys, LED headlamps with auto high-beam, Pre-Collision Assist, eight-inch SYNC infotainment with navigation and the FordPass Connect system, keyless start, electronic climate control, massaging front seats, ambient lighting, Qi wireless smartphone charging, cruise control with an adjustable speed limiter and a rear spoiler.
A generous list, we're sure you'll agree, but making the €1,600 step up to the ST-Line (starting at €26,065) will bring in the ST-Line sports body kit on the outside, a larger rear spoiler, LED fog lamps at the front with a cornering-light feature, an ST-Line sports exhaust, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a dark sports headliner, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and alloy pedals and gear knob. Another €1,800 from here is the ST-Line X (from €27,865), which further adds 18-inch matte-black alloy wheels, the more intuitive SYNC Gen 3 infotainment with both satnav and a B&O Play uprated sound system, partial-leather sports trim, privacy glass, and - finally - a shark-fin antenna on the roof.
Incidentally, every one of these Puma models is said to emit 127g/km CO2, placing them in Band B1 (€270/year) for road tax.
