Everyone loves a Fast Ford – Ford Performance has had a look at the Puma and the result is a 200hp Puma ST… sounds like fun!
A 1.5 litre Ecoboost petrol engine pushes the ST from 0-100km/h in 6.7 seconds. “suspension nd handling alterations include: a bespoke twist-beam rear axle, anti-roll bar and damper configurations. Steering is quicker (+25%) and the brakes a re bigger too (+17%). It has new boots – specially developed Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres. A first in segment limited-slip differential (LSD) is an option. Puma ST also features selectable Drive Modes including Sport mode and ironically for a Ford Performance vehicle an Eco Mode.
Combined Ford says the Puma ST promises a dynamic and agile driving experience.
“Real driving enthusiasts aren’t going to settle for less excitement just because life demands a more ‘sensible’ car, so our number one priority was that the Puma ST had to be as exhilarating and capable as every ST model, without sacrificing any of Puma’s practicality,” said Stefan Muenzinger, Ford Performance manager, Europe. “We believe that we have the best-handling small SUV in its segment. It really does feel connected and has the true ST feel. It is a joy to drive.”
