What 4×4?

It’s that time of year again when our thoughts turn to shovelling snow, Icy roads and of course the large man in the red suit. For some of us our attention turns to the suitability of the cars we are currently driving. If it is a 4×4 you are after the market is currently filled with many interesting prospects. One of which is the Ford Kuga. The Kuga has many fans and in its current guise it is better than ever. From the entry level Zetec model to the range topping Titanium X Sport they all come with a large list standard specification including self-parking in some models. The Kuga’s ‘party piece’ is its intelligent 4-wheel drive system. This allows the car to run in 2-wheel drive on those days where 4×4 isn’t necessary, however if the road conditions suddenly change the on-board computer can revert to 4×4 in milliseconds. This improves fuel consumption and emissions. For example, a 4×4 Kuga with Fords new 2.0TDCi engine achieves 54.3mpg on average and will cost only £130 a year on road tax, which is a huge step forward compared to 4×4’s of past. Here at I&K we currently have every trim level of Kuga available, including a 2016 Ford Kuga 2.0TDCi Titanium Sport 4×4 in Frozen White with satellite navigation, appearance pack and 19” Alloys for only £23,950 a saving of nearly £6000 on new price.

If you are looking to take advantage of the safety benefits a 4×4 will offer but don’t want or need a larger car there is plenty of options for you also. At I&K our bestselling small 4×4 is the Vauxhall Mokka, in fact it is one of the best-selling compact SUV’s in the whole of Europe with more than half a million being ordered since its release in 2012. The 4×4 Mokka features a similar quick thinking intelligent 4×4 system to the Kuga’s and again has an excellent specification. Some models feature a heated steering wheel and a house style plug socket in the rear, ensuring you can keep everyone entertained on those long journeys.
