The new SUV that will save Ford Europe...it's like THE FIRM all over again.



https://europe.autonews.com/blogs/how-puma-pushed-ford-outside-its-comfort-zone#adunit_path=opinion/blogs

It's based on the Fiesta platform, but with wider tracks to accommodate absurdly huge wheels. It looks cartoonishly odd so that BINI PEOPLEZ might buy them.

Hubris abounds:

Ford expects the Puma to match the impact of the first generations of the Ford Focus (1998) and S-Max sporty minivan (2006). Both debuted successful designs that broke free of the company’s own conventions.

Company executives also believe the extra money spent on the platform was worth it to get a design that will appeal to customers in a very image-driven segment.


We'll see. I'm thinking too late, probably too much money, in a sector that the Frogs and Dog-Eaters can dominate between them with one hand tied behind their back.

There’s a hint of the old Scorpio in that rather startled Frog face Ford have saddled it with.
I agree with the Korean comment, look what Kia have announced.

Just don’t look too closely at the interior colour scheme.

Aye. The Dog-Eaters have done the shrunken Porsche Madeleine thing
far better than Ford.

And with scarcely a touch of Belphégor.

If it had less rake on the A pillars/screen that would be a motability favourite.

YLLAE-PK.

This will sell by the bucket load I predict. Soon to be seen on every school run.

I saw a Puma on the road for the first time this afternoon.

Not taken with it - Identical to the one at the top of the thread. Looked like a weedy suv on ridiculously big wheels. The frontal aspect hints at the Cayenne and Madeleine in the way a third-grade Chinese manufacturer might.

Definite top tip for ECoTY 2020 then...

New Bronco looks ace. New Puma fucks up parts searches for old Puma owners.

Blue car is the smaller BRONCO SPURT (Focus platform, monocoque). The other two are the Bronco (Ranger platform, separate chassis).
