Luggage capacity is 444 litres thanks to the design of what Ford calls the ‘MegaBox’ boot area.

Commenting on the new Puma’s arrival in Ireland, Ciarán McMahon, chairman and MD of Ford Ireland, said: “I am sure the new Ford Puma will be a big hit in the Irish market. It is a compact SUV that feels like a much bigger car thanks, in part, to the innovative design of the MegaBox boot area. Then add in the very fuel efficient mild hybrid 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine and you can see why Puma will tick all the boxes for many prospective new car buyers.”
