Commenting on the new Ford Puma, Ciarán McMahon, Chairman and Managing Director 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”.
