Ford’s entry-level SUV enters 2022 unchanged, apart from a minor shuffling of options.
The 2022 Ford Puma – MY22.25 in Ford parlance – will be available in Australia from March 2022.
The optional panoramic sunroof and a black contrast roof will now be available exclusively on the ST-Line V. These items were previously optional across the range.
The Puma’s main option package, the Park Pack, has also seen its price reduced from $1500 to $990.
This package, available across the range, adds semi-autonomous parking assist, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control with stop/go, blind-spot monitoring, lane-centring, evasive steering assistance and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Puma was developed primarily for the European market. Both there and here, it battles the likes of the Nissan Juke and Volkswagen T-Cross.
- 2022 Ford Puma FWD: $29,990
- 2022 Ford Puma ST-Line: $32,340
- 2022 Ford Puma ST-Line V: $35,540
All prices exclude on-road costs.
All versions of the 2022 Ford Puma sold in Australia are powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine which produces 92kW of power and 170Nm of torque.
Drive is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The 2022 Ford Puma uses 5.3L/100km on the combined cycle and has a 42L fuel tank.
The Puma’s EcoBoost engine includes fuel-saving cylinder deactivation, meaning it can shut off one cylinder under low engine load to save fuel.
All models also feature automatic stop/start.
The standard 2022 Ford Puma measures 4186mm long, 1805mm wide and 1550mm tall. It has a 2588mm wheelbase.
ST-Line and ST-Line V models are slightly longer at 4207mm due to a sportier body kit.
The Puma has 410L of boot space, expanding to 1170L with the rear seats folded.
