The ST-Line sits in the middle of the Ford Puma range with its list price of $32,340.
Coming standard on the Puma ST-Line is an 8.0-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat nav, wireless phone charger, an embedded modem, climate control, 12.3-inch instrument cluster, paddle shifters, push-button start, 180-degree split-view reversing camera, digital radio, sports seats and an ST-Line steering wheel.
There’s also a tough body kit which includes the ST-Line matt black grille, ST-line front and rear aprons, the side skirts, integrated rear spoiler and those ST-Line 17-inch wheels. That’s all cosmetic, apart from the wheels, but actually improving performance is the sports suspension which is also standard on the ST-Line.
Advanced safety technology onboard includes AEB, lane keeping assistance and traffic sign recognition. It’s a bit disappointing that some safety features such as adaptive cruise control and blind spot warning need to be optioned as part of a package.
