The good folks at Ford South Africa offered me the opportunity to test drive the latest Ford Kuga for a week. I took delivery on Monday and let me tell you this car is but awesome. I’m not going to even attempt to be all technical and car junky like, because you’ll know straight away that I have no clue. What I can tell and share with you is my experience of driving the car; what some of my observations are from a lifestyle and simple member of the public perspective. I’m also interested to see what other people say, especially since so many people have turned their heads or “oohed and aahed” when I’ve show them my temporary new best friend 😉
Yesterday after my show, I met a chap by the name of Michael at the Cliffcentral.com headquarters. He is the proud owner of a Ford already, but because he’s getting ready to finish off his management studies, he’s looking at an upgrade and the Ford Kuga might just be what he’s after. I shot a short clip of him getting into the car and you can see his reaction below:
One quick observation and the thing I love about the new Fords is that they have the SYNC functionality. It’s very effective, smart and sets them apart from their competitors. I’m just battling to sort mine out in the Kuga. So if there are any experts out there, who are willing to assist, holler! More on my driving experience to follow in the week.
