The Ford Kuga remains a hot entity in Europe – particularly the plug-in hybrid model, which has topped the sales charts quite a bit over the past year or so and was the best-selling PHEV in that region over the first half of 2022. Now, The Blue Oval is updating the Kuga lineup a bit, adding the new ST-Line X Black Package to the mix, as well as a very special set of seats that have been certified by the leading spinal health organization Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. (AGR) due to their superior comfort and support.
The new Ford Kuga ST-Line X Black Package presents an upgrade solely in terms of appearances, and includes a black-painted roof, black-finished mirror caps, front fascia vents, and rear spoiler, along with black ST-Line badges, black Kuga tailgate lettering, and black-painted 20-inch alloy wheels. The new package is available to order now.
Meanwhile, the Kuga is also now available with a new comfort seat option that features 18-way adjustment, which allows the seat to adapt to the person in their sitting position rather than the person adapting their position to the seat, a requirement to obtain approval from AGR. Seat height, length, and inclination can all be adjusted, along with four-way lumbar and four-way headrest adjustment to help occupants of all shapes and sizes find a comfortable seating position.
These comfort seats originally launched back in 2019 for the Ford Focus, and became an option this past June for the Ford Fiesta, Focus, and Puma ST models as well. Owners of these vehicles are able adjust the base cushion extension and angle in addition to the traditional movements of forward and backward, as well as adjusting the seat’s backrest angle. Height adjustment and electronic four-way lumbar adjustment are also available to optimize the driver’s positioning.
