I am looking to replace my current Ford KUGA with something more prestige and quality.
I normally set out with a list of my personal requirements and ticks in columns below each manufacture. I will list the differences that may give the edge. Along with MPG and TAX cost.
|Engine||1.8 / 2.0||1.5 / 2.0||1998cc||2 TDI|
|MPG||56||36 - 62||57||49 - 59|
|Sensors||Park Assist||Park Assist||Park assist &
Other standard features I'll be hoping to see:
Engine start / stop button. Stability Control. Rain Sensors. Halogen Lights. Electric Door mirrors. Well placed USB ports. 12V socket in luggage compartment. Automatic driving lights.
6 speed has been around for a while, but 7 speed and even 8 speed are also available.
Dynamic Damper Control, ECO PRO Mode, Brake Energy Regeneration. Reversing Camera and Park Assistant. Adaptive LED Headlights.
Lane assist, Battery regeneration, Adaptive cruise control (ACC), XDS traction and handling.
Advanced Parking System. Power-operated tailgate. Voice control. (Brochure)
ACTIVSENSE safety technology. Advanced Smart City Brake Support. (Brochure)
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) including Front Assist, radar sensor controlled distance monitoring system. City emergency braking system.
I will be adding other makes such as Jaguar and Toyota. I went to Toyota to look at the Hybrid C-HR, but I want something a bit higher personally.
Toyota come with Safety Sense incl Pre-collision with Pedestrian Detection.
