sgCarMart – Introduced in 2008, the Kuga, also known as the Escape in the U.S.A and Canada, is Ford's compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), built based on the C1 platform that is also shared with the Focus.
Ford entered the local compact SUV market when the first generation Kuga arrived here two years after its worldwide launch.
Besides being rather late, the car also lacked the broad appeal needed to capture a meaningful slice of the segment, against an impressive array of famous and popular nameplates such as the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and the Volkswagen Tiguan.
Unveiled at the 2011 Detroit Show as the Vertrek concept, the new Kuga moves up a class and this time round, the car is here within only a matter of months into its life.
