Ford PUMA ST Line X 2020 New Review.
The Ford Puma has a number of innovative features that have been developed to improve your driving pleasure. For example, selectable driving modes and Ford Co-Pilot360, which includes an impressive range of assistance technologies that help you accelerate, brake and even steer. These include the adaptive cruise control system, pre-collision assist and the avoidance assistant, all of whom have a watchful eye on the road and draw your attention to possible dangers.
A new era of clean hybrid electric vehicles has begun, which is also what the Ford Puma with the self-charging mild hybrid option stands for. Offering a selection of new, forward-looking, advanced EcoBoost hybrid gasoline options, the Puma engines deliver outstanding performance, impressive fuel economy and significantly lower CO 2 emissions than conventional, non-hybrid engines.
Not only great to look at, but also clever. The Ford Puma cabin envelops you in stylish design and leather-trimmed sophistication. The front seats have lumbar supports and offer a massage function for additional comfort . The shiny interior ensures elegant styling. And thanks to a multitude of intelligent functions and innovative technologies, you have full control. From the digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster and the advanced 8-inch touchscreen display to a range of additional services and functions that are available via your SYNC-3 infotainment system and the built-in FordPass Connect 1 modem: every element has become designed to make your ride as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
From warning of possible collision risks to clever systems that help you maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That is why the Ford Puma is equipped with clever assistance technologies that protect you, your family and other road users.
Modern life often requires an inventive approach when it comes to sharing space. With the best-in-class uncompromising cargo space at the rear, the Ford Puma supports this concept.
In addition to stylish flair and confident presence, the beautifully shaped exterior of the Puma is rounded off with sophisticated functionality. With its design details, it offers real versatility.

Puma is also the first vehicle in its segment to offer hands-free tailgate technology and lumbar massage seats for comfort and convenience – both delivered as standard in premium Titanium X specification. The Ford Performance-inspired Puma ST-Line is offered with signature sports body styling including 19-inch optional matt black machined alloy wheels, sports suspension and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. A new Puma ST-Line X Vignale variant further enhances comfort with standard Windsor leather seats and premium B&O Sound System.
The BISG has also enabled Ford engineers to lower the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine’s compression ratio and add a larger turbocharger for more power, by mitigating turbo-lag using torque supplementation that also rotates the engine faster for maintained turbocharger boost response.
Able to restart the engine in approximately 300 milliseconds – about the same as the blink of an eye – the BISG also enables the Puma EcoBoost Hybrid’s Auto Start-Stop technology to operate in a wider range of scenarios for even greater fuel savings, including when coasting to a stop below 15 km/h and even when the vehicle is in gear with the clutch pedal depressed.
“Our 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has already proven that fuel efficiency and performance can go hand-in-hand. Our EcoBoost Hybrid technology takes that to the next level,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “We believe customers are going to love the smooth and urgent power delivery of our EcoBoost Hybrid powertrains just as much as they’ll enjoy less-frequent trips to the fuel pumps.”
A 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivers from 131 g/km CO2 emissions and 5.7 l/100 km fuel efficiency WLTP 1 and later this year will be available with a new seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission that offers seamless gear changes for optimised refinement and fuel efficiency.2
Puma’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost and EcoBoost Hybrid powertrains also feature Ford’s industry-first cylinder deactivation system for a three-cylinder engine, which automatically switches off one the engine’s cylinders when full capacity is not needed, such as when coasting or cruising. The system can disengage or re-engage one cylinder in 14 milliseconds.
