The Ford Puma is an SUV that was presented in September 2020 and that is available with a diesel engine, another gasoline and has the ECO label of the DGT thanks to its microhybridization systems. They have a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 7-speed automatic for the gasoline versions. There are many models that directly rival the Puma in terms of dimensions, such as the 2008 Peugeot, Hyundai Kona, Toyota Yaris Cross, Mazda CX-3, Nissan Juke or Volkswagen T-Roc.
Ford Puma Dimensions
|Measures||Model||Average of competitors|
|Distancia entre ejes (Batalla) (mm)||2588||2651|
|Altura libre sobre el suelo (mm)||164||179|
|Front track width (mm)||1562||1569|
|Rear track width (mm)||1521||1568|
|Turning diameter between curbs (mm)||10400||10921|
The Ford Puma ranks one notch below the average of the competitors in this small SUV study. It is a model of small dimensions but that offers good data in proportion to those measurements. It measures almost 4.21 meters in length, 1.54 in height and 1.80 in width. Its wheelbase is 2,588 mm, which is 63 mm less than the average. This is usually directly assumed a somewhat more limited interior habitability. If three adult passengers want to travel in the rear seats they will have little space for both legs and shoulders. Especially the central square.
The ground clearance is 16.4 m. Good figure if we take into account the rest of the data that the table offers. Its front track width is very close to the average of the competitors but at the rear it does show narrower. Finally, another important piece of information is always the turning diameter between curbs that the Puma offers 10,400 mm while the competitors are at 10,921 mm.
Squares and Gates

The Ford Puma is an SUV with a five-door body and a 5-seater configuration. In its range, Ford offers versions with an option of more than 5 passengers such as the S-Max or the Tourneo Custom. In the case of the Puma and other models such as the Focus or the Kuga, that option is not available.
|Trunk||Model||Average of competitors|
|Load compartment capacity (l)||468||468|
|Folded seats capacity (l)||1161||1443|
The cargo compartment of the Ford Puma offers a very good capacity in proportion to the rest of its dimensions. 468 liters exactly which, in addition, is the exact figure of the average of its rivals. With the seats folded down, the boot capacity does lag quite a bit behind the average. 1,161 liters compared to 1,443 of its rivals. The volume of the trunk is the data corresponding to the combustion versions of the Ford SUV.
There is a microhybrid version of the model that, due to the incorporation of the batteries, loses the trunk. It is not the object of study but it should be noted that in the case of opting for the Puma MHEV the boot measurements would be somewhat reduced and the cargo volume would drop to 400 liters.
In short, we are facing a completely new model, with a very characteristic design and with similarities with other models in its range such as the Focus. It has good consumptions, mainly in the MHEV version, some contained dimensions for those looking for facilities in urban mobility and a boot capacity in the average of its rivals.
