Time ago that Ford launched the Mondeo Vignale, a version focused on a type of clients seeking “more Premium” and stylistic. Then, a few months ago the American brand us reported that Vignale would no longer be a version of a single model and would become a range, reaching several models more.
The protagonist of these lines is precisely one of those new Vignale that was coming, the new Ford Kuga Vignale, which will be added throughout the year to the aforementioned Mondeo Vignale and the new s-max Vignale and Edge Vignale. Take the base of the Ford Kuga, but it adds some aesthetic changes both inside and outside to give it a more elegant image which is not normally own a model medium generalist brand.
From the outside first thing that characterizes him is the color of his body, a Pearly color called “Vignale Milano Grigio”, which is what we see in the pictures. At the front get a grille with hexagonal shape of large house brand, as well as outlines chrome in the fog and into the lower air inlet. Side view also has a better presence thanks to chrome roof bars, “Vignale” logos and stylized design wheels. Exterior Assembly topped it with a protection in the lower part of behind finished in chrome and two exhaust outlets, one on each side.
Insideis where you can see more that “luxury” that we talked about at the beginning. The seats are an upholstered Windsor leather with stitching in hexagonal shapes, which are also found in the dashboard and the door panels.
Mechanically it is available in more powerful versions, i.e. the 2 litre diesel TDCi 150 and 180 horsepower, 1.5 150-182-horsepower EcoBoost. Depending on the mechanical versions may incorporate manual or automatic changeover and front-wheel drive or All Wheel Drive integral of the American brand. This 4 × 4 traction manages the torque that sends an axis or another depending on the conditions, being able to take this decision in 20 milliseconds.
Each unit is finished by hand in Valencia, at the Centre Vignale who owns the brand in the city. Ford has not realized selling prices or when hit exactly the market, guaranteeing only that will be before the end of this year.
