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.

All Pumas have the same engine – it’s a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder. That’s a little engine but it makes an impressive 92kW of power and 170Nm of torque.

Shifting gears is a seven-speed dual-clutch auto. There’s no manual available. All Pumas are front-wheel drive.

The Puma was given the maximum five-star safety rating by ANCAP based on how the SUV performed in its European test in 2019.  

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.
