Ford has finally revealed the production version of the new Ford Kuga Vignale upscale SUV that will expand both the Ford Kuga and the Ford Vignale offerings when it arrives in the UK later this year.

Available in pearlescent-metallic Vignale Milano Grigio exterior colour with Cashmere leather interior trim as part of an exclusive specification, the Ford Kuga Vignale also contains a range of powerful and efficient Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel engines – and with Ford Intelligent All Wheel Drive.

The Ford Kuga Vignale joins the new Ford S-MAX Vignale sports activity vehicle and Ford Edge Vignale large SUV as one of three new Ford Vignale models that will be arriving this year alongside the Ford Mondeo Vignale .

The new Ford Kuga Vignale Side ViewOver 80% of the 33,000 Ford Kugas being driven around the UK in 2015 were high-specification Titanium models; an indication that when it comes to the Kuga, drivers want a more luxurious drive, something that Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe, has noticed as a trend.

“Our Ford Kuga Vignale speaks directly to the growing trend for luxury SUVs and represents the very best of Ford with premium design, materials and craftsmanship. We see great potential to extend the top end of our Ford product range and offer a special experience that meets the growing expectations of our customers.”

Which is where the new Ford Kuga Vignale comes in.

The new Ford Kuga Vignale InteriorThe new Ford Kuga Vignale is based on the existing Ford Kuga mid-size SUV and adds in some dark gloss effect finishes for the front and rear skid plates, door appliques and boot trim, and polished aluminium surround, as well as that exclusive colour.

There's also some bespoke chrome-finish foglamps and 19" polished aluminium wheels.

 And, if that's not enough, passionate experts spend more than two hours hand polishing the paintwork to create the perfect high-gloss finish.

“Ford Vignale design exudes sophistication and premium sportiness,” said Joel Piaskowski, director, Design, Ford of Europe. “For customers, Ford Vignale is a more individualistic way to enjoy luxury and express your style.”
