Ford Puma Review 2021

The Puma is back with a new sporty design and has already won the What Car? Car of the Year 2020 award.

Designed to truly stand out in the highly competitive SUV market, the Ford Puma not only looks the part thanks to its stylish, sporty and seductive design, but is also one of the first vehicles to benefit from Ford’s EcoBoost technology for enhanced fuel efficiency without compromising on power or performance.

Our Ford Puma review covers:

Ford Puma Key Features:

  • Sporty and athletic SUV-inspired design
  • 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine available in 125 PS and 155 PS variants
  • Mild-hybrid technology for enhanced fuel efficiency
  • Best-in-class load space of 456 litres
  • First vehicle in its segment to offer hands-free tailgate and massage front seats
  • Winner of the What Car? Car of the Year 2020 Award

Design and Practicality

The new Ford Puma is the first vehicle to feature Ford’s new ‘human centric’ design. Its expressive front-end with its imposing front grille and distinctive “canoe-shaped” headlamps make the Puma instantly recognisable on the road. At the rear, the car’s low, sloping roofline and LED fog lamps not only make the Puma look different to any other compact crossover on the market, but also deliver a class-leading luggage capacity of 456 litres.

Inside, the Puma’s upscale interior is designed to offer a smooth and relaxing drive with segment-first lumbar massage front seats to revitalise tired muscles on longer journeys, as well as a full-length openable panorama roof for a spacious and airy feel. A wireless charging pad for recharging smartphones whilst on the move is also available, with Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ compatibility at no extra cost.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, the all-new Ford Puma is one of the first vehicles to benefit from Ford’s sophisticated mild-hybrid technology, specifically designed to enhance fuel efficiency while complementing Ford’s fun-to-drive experience.

Offered in 125 PS and 155 PS variants, the Puma's 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine works with Ford’s intelligent, self-regulating mild-hybrid system to deliver fuel efficiency improvements of up to 9% without compromising on power or performance.

In addition, customers can choose from advanced range of Ford EcoBoost petrol and Ford EcoBlue diesel engines that are supported by standard Auto Start-Stop for further reduced running costs and a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission.

Susan Ford Puma 1.0 EcoBoost Hybrid mHEV ST-Line X

I absolutely love this car, but the boot is a bit high for my dog to easily jump in, so as much as I love my puma I may look for something with a lower boot. However if puma designers can make the next model with a lower boot, I definitely get another one. 😊

Calling the Puma a Hybrid is very misleading. I preferred my previous Ford Focus as better value.

I love this car ! It really is the best gone I’ve ever driven ! And I’m in my60s ! However I’ve just been refused to renew my car insurance even though I’ve never ever claimed ! Is this because it’s a lease ?

Neil Ford Puma 1.0 EcoBoost Hybrid mHEV ST-Line X

Very underpowered, engine feels like it is struggling at all revs around urban environments. OK on the motorway. Good boot space. Poor mpg. Touchscreen not the best, quite laggy. Compared to our last rental (Seat Leon) its a bit underwhelming. Definitely wouldn't recommend or lease this vehicle again.

We absolutely love this car! Great to drive. Lots of room, especially with the storage in the boot floor. Unbelievable performance for a 1000cc engine. Have averaged over 47mpg and most of our miles are around town on short journeys. Can't recommend this car highly enough and especially at the discounted price we got it for.
