The Puma is back at Ford. The one-time coup is set to return in the form of a crossover, due on sale late 2019. In the meantime, the American automaker has offered a first glimpse of this new model.

Stuart Rowley, president of Ford Europe, gets straight to the point: "... we think Puma is going to really resonate with compact-car customers in Europe.... We ve gone to every length to give customers the flexibility they want, with progressive and evocative styling, so that they can drive the best-looking car they ve ever owned."

The first image of the car, shrouded in darkness, offers a glimpse of a vehicle with a raised ride height and athletic styling, including distinctive wing-top mounted headlamps. Ford also promises a class-leading luggage capacity of 456 liters.

The Ford Puma will get a 115-horsepower EcoBoost Hybrid engine with anticipated fuel efficiency from 5.4L/100km and CO2 emissions from 124g/km. Ford also explains that energy recovered during braking and coasting phases is used to charge a 48volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack.

Due out late 2019, the Ford Puma will be produced at the automaker s Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania. At first glance, this new Puma appears to be lined up as a rival to the Renault Captur and the Peugeot 2008.
