Ford Puma ST-Line Vignale Combines A Sporty Appearance With Luxurious Amenities

We haven’t exactly tried to hide our affinity for the Ford Puma and the forthcoming Ford Puma ST, which in our mind is a far superior product to the dated and somewhat boring Ford EcoSport. And though Ford has not plans to sell the Puma here in America, it won’t stop us from coveting the sporty little crossover. And now that the Ford Puma ST-Line Vignale has just debuted, it makes us want one even more.

Vignale is Ford’s range-topping trim level in Europe, slotting even above the Titanium as an all-out luxury line. Meanwhile, the Ford ST-Line – as we have seen in other models like the also-new Ford Edge ST-Line, features all of the sporty styling enhancements of the ST models without the performance upgrades. As such, the Ford Puma ST-Line Vignale is a healthy merger of both worlds, being a sporty-looking model adorned with the most luxurious features The Blue Oval has to offer.

The Puma ST-Line Vignale takes the regular Puma ST-Line and adds even more premium styling bits and equipment, including things like a satin aluminium upper grille and grille surround, an ebony lower grille, a body-colored lower rear bumper, LED headlights, and a large rear spoiler on the outside.

Inside, the ST-Line Vignale comes standard with Windsor leather seats, a Manacor leather steering wheel, a premium B&O sound system, and Ford’s KeyFree system.

Also new to the Puma lineup is Ford’s 1.5L EcoBlue diesel engine that produces 123 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, along with a newly optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. These drivetrain options join the existing 1.0L EcoBoost Hybrid, the regular 1.0L EcoBoost, and existing six-speed manual transmission.

In addition to the Ford Puma ST-Line Vignale, the subcompact crossover is available in a variety of flavors, including Trend, Titanium, Titanium X and ST-Line X, along with the upcoming Puma ST, which will join the lineup later this year.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    The trapezoid grill on Fords has outlived its welcome!
    It was fine on the 2013 Fusion and Fiesta, but it is tired and old now. Weird variations like the Explorer and Escape are terrible, and I dread the fact that it is on the Mustang Mach E, as that likley means the next Mustang will have it too.
    Please Ford, look at the Bronco, look how well the retro front looks on that, and then look at the Edge, Escape, and Explorer.

    I think its looks good and the grill still looks good and after all styling is in the eye of beholder so just becuase some one does not like a design its does not mean its old after all once a car is launch its deemed old the moment a design comes out and to me there are far more ugly grills out there on vehicles which so called car expert’s love.
