KUGA ON THE PROWL IF WE DE­MAND IT

Herald Sun - Motoring - - News -

TWO of the hottest new Euro­pean Fords are be­ing as­sessed for Aus­tralia. They are the Kuga all-wheel drive and S-Max peo­ple mover.

Both are com­pact mod­els built off the me­chan­i­cal pack­age of the Fo­cus and would be eas­ily added to the Ford Aus­tralia fam­ily, pro­vided there is a case for solid lo­cal sales.

Ford plans to push harder with the Fi­esta and Fo­cus in the next fee months, and a new Fi­esta is ex­pected next year. But it has re­jected the baby Ka and is yet to be­gin sell­ing the promised Mon­deo diesel.

The first sign of the po­ten­tial of the S-Max and Kuga will come in less than a month af­ter a Euro­pean as­sess­ment is made of the two ve­hi­cles as part of a po­ten­tial busi­ness case for Aus­tralia.
