Ford Puma ST-Line 2021 road test review
Tim Nicholson puts the all-new Ford Puma light SUV through its paces.
Ford has resurrected the Puma nameplate for its new light SUV, but that’s all it shares with the compact sportscar of the same name from the late 1990s. The European-sourced Puma replaces the slow-selling, Indian-built EcoSport as the entry to Ford’s SUV line-up. It’s landing in a hot segment and fighting for attention with some impressive competitors. Can the Puma claw its way to the top of the light SUV pack?
- Thumbs down: Pricey compared to some rivals, tight rear seat, Sync3 infotainment starting to age.
The Puma is perfect for style-focused buyers who also love a weekend blast on some twisty roads.
Inside, the Puma boasts funky styling, plenty of standard safety gear and flexible boot space.
