Here at Gates, we’re huge fans of the stunning Ford Puma and it's easy to see why. This compact SUV embraces the very best in distinctive styling, introduces the latest Mild Hybrid technology as part of Ford's electrification plans and is available with a whole host of features and technologies designed to make your time behind the wheel as stress-free as possible. As such, it’s perhaps no surprise that the Ford Puma is at the top of the list for our Motability Car of the Month.
So, what is it about the New Ford Puma that makes it such a standout performer? Well firstly, there's the elevated ride height that offers great visibility when driving. The vehicle height also makes it easier to get into for front and rear passengers alike. Driving is a pleasure as the 19-inch wheels, complete with Luster-Nickel alloys, grip the road to provide exceptional handling. There will be no complaints from your passengers either as there is plenty of legroom and headroom inside the Puma.
Those looking to lease the Ford Puma on the Motability Scheme will also be impressed by the versatility on offer from the cabin. Bootspace is ample, with 468 litres expanding to 1,161 litres with the rear seats folded, meaning any storage requirements you have will be accommodated with ease. What's more, the new Megabox feature is ingenious; a clever way of maximising storage space further meaning that even tall items can fit in the boot of the Puma. The video opposite explains more.
Plus, there’s a host of driving and access adaptations available to further enhance the suitability of the model and ensure that it meets your every need.
Of course, one of the added benefits of selecting the Ford Puma as your next Motability vehicle is the Mild Hybrid technology included. The Mild Hybrid powertrains cannot be driven solely on electric power but instead has an electric motor which provides additional support to the EcoBoost petrol engine when it is needed and uses regenerative braking to recharge the battery (so there's no need to connect the New Puma to an external power source). This means your fuel economy is improved and emissions are reduced keeping your running costs affordable.
If you want your next Motability Car to be equipped with the very latest technology, again the New Puma will not disappoint. Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Assist and even Evasive Steering Assist will all provide added reassurance to your seasonal motoring. You'll have front and rear parking sensors with some models benefiting from really handy rear-view parking camera - so parking the Puma certainly won't be a problem. The Ford SYNC3 infotainment system will allow you to stay connected on the go and with it's voice activated controls, you can do so safely too.
The Ford Puma EcoBoost Mild Hybrid is now available on the Motability Scheme with advance payments from as little as £95. It is available with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions and whether you're looking for the ultimate in comfort, or something more on the sporty side, there's a Puma with the personality to suit!
