The New Ford Puma is on a roll in 2020 - hot on the heels of winning the coveted WhatCar? Car of the Year Award 2020, the compact SUV has now claimed another award courtesy of Autocar.
The annual Autocar awards celebrate the most impressive motoring achievements in the last 12 months and the New Ford Puma was recognised in the "Game Changer" category. This particular award highlights cars that are responsible for raising standards in a hard fought class whilst setting new industry standards. It was particularly complemented for its aesthetics, ride quality and class-leading luggage space.
Mark Tisshaw, Autocar editor, said: “Ford has achieved something remarkable with the new Puma, which is to bestow upon the previously lacklustre compact-crossover class a member that possesses character in both the way it looks and the way it drives. The latter is especially impressive, Ford once again democratising enjoyment behind the wheel by ensuring even low-powered and sparsely equipped models are fun on the right road. That ride quality doesn’t seem to have been in any way impinged by the car’s pursuit of handling prowess also hints at the detail-engineering Ford is known for among big-volume manufacturers.”
The New Ford Puma went on sale earlier in the year and is already proving popular with almost 7,000 sales across the UK. Whilst traditional petrol engines are available, it's undoubtedly the Mild-Hybrid models that have had the most impact accounting for over 90% of total New Puma sales.
