Did a double take at first as I recongnised it but didn't know it was on sale in this country too already.

its just too similar to the Kuga IMHO, which is probably why you see more of those on the road.

It looks like it was designed for the Asian market. I don't like it at all.

Completely agree. Can't remember if I read when it was first designed that it would only be sold to Asian markets - might have just totally made that up though lol.

 

I personally wouldn't buy it. The new Kuga is nicer - but it's 3 piece Focus-style grille looks odd. And as we know the Focus is getting a face lift to bring it in line with the new face of Ford (i.e new Fiesta / pending new Mondeo (current US Fusion) - so maybe the new Kuga will get refreshed in a year or two too.

 

The all new Ford Edge SUV (larger than the Kuga) has been revealed today - check out FordEU & Ford (US) YouTube channels for vids.

Didn't know anything about the edge, looks interesting, I know of someone who is looking for a SUV and is currently looking at a Honda cr-v, I might have to throw this into the mix

The Edge has been sold in America for a while, but this all-new one is built on a different platform to reduce weight and improve things ready for it becoming a sucessful 'global Ford'.

You got any info saying it's released, had a quick search on Google and all the sites I've been looking at state a 2015 release date

Paul at the start said he saw a 14 plate out there (whether it was a pre reg forecourt or on the road I am not sure).
