Safety and Security

From alerting you to potential collision hazards, to clever systems that help you to maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That’s why the ALL-New Ford Kuga comes loaded with a host of clever assistance technologies as standard, all designed to help keep you, your family and other road users protected.

5-star safety

It’s not just us who are saying it. It’s no surprise to us that as proof of its outstanding ability to protect you and your passengers, the New Kuga has earned a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, the leading independent safety organisation in Europe. Their role is to thoroughly evaluate the safety of all new vehicles, holding them to the highest levels of scrutiny.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.

Maximises braking in an emergency

Emergency Brake Assist is designed to recognise an emergency braking situation and optimise the pressure within the braking system to provide maximum stopping power.

Keeps you in control

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control Systems, it can detect when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically apply a braking pulse to individual wheels to help stabilise it.

Helping to keep children safe

The Kuga is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. It comes with rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.

An early warning if a tyre is going flat

If it detects any of your tyres starting to lose pressure during your journey, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns you by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.

Protecting and securing your Kuga from thieves

A Thatcham Category 1 alarm is a sophisticated system that automatically arms itself when you double-lock your Kuga. It will sound a powerful alarm if triggered by forced entry, the car being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside. The technology is also designed to help prevent unwanted towing of your Kuga. It's possible to arm the system in different ways, which means you can choose to monitor the doors, bonnet and boot.
