The Ford Kuga is a compact crossover SUV designed and produced by Ford. The car is based on the C1 platform that also form the underpinnings of the Ford Focus and Ford C-MAX. Both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are offered, each with a choice of 2.5-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engine. The Kuga went on sale in the first half of 2008, and is built at Ford's plant in Saarlouis, Germany. In the UK, emphasising the car's premium market aspirations, only high-end Zetec and Titanium specifications are offered. The combined fuel consumption is 44.1 mpg-imp (6.41 L/100 km; 36.7 mpg-US) and the CO2 emissions are 169 g/km. Petrol Diesel Kuga is the Serb-Croatian language word for the plague. However, the name of the car was not changed for these markets. A July 20, 2007 report indicated Ford executives were considering the prospects of sales in North America.
