The 2022 Ford Puma is an enjoyable little car to drive with your family and it has a little surprise in the boot! Let's find out what it is…
Well this surprise makes a big difference to family practicality. The boot floor drops down about 15cm, making the boot really deep which is perfect for transporting your pet dog…
… and for prams to fit on their sides…
… and for prams that are modular and stack on top of each other.
AND underneath the boot floor there is another surprise, a large hidden storage area on top of the spare wheel. This would be great for putting all the wet beach stuff!
The boot of the Ford Puma feels small but surprisingly it holds ten shopping bags when empty, which is comparable to the Peugeot 2008, VW T-Roc, Hyundai i30 and Kia Stonic which all hold ten shopping bags as well.
When it comes to the back seats there are two ISOFix points and three top tether anchorages in the Ford Puma. We found there is room for two Infasecure child seats in the back.
I tried two Infasecure Attain More rear-facing and there was just enough space in the front for a 180cm driver or passenger.
With the Infasecure Attain More rear-facing on one side and the forward-facing Aspire More forward-facing we could fit a 186cm driver in front, making it a practical option for our family of four. To learn more about the child seats used in this review, click on the link here.
The interior of the Ford Puma is compact and neat. In the front, the storage is practical, with two cup holders and the door bins will hold a refillable water bottle. The glove box is a good size and the shelf in the top means it will hold an iPad and wallet with the manual.
In the back things are more minimal, with no cup holders! Just two net map pockets and a little storage hole in the back of the central console box and door bins that will hold a water bottle.
The media screen is small in the front of the Ford Puma, I found the media system basic and simple and it does have Apple CarPlay thankfully as well as a phone charging well in the central console.
The reversing camera image does fill the little media screen but the image is a little milky. You can turn the parking sensors on and off with a button in the central console. Being a small car the visibility is good, even with child seats installed in the back. The 2022 Ford Puma is a compact and nippy car to drive and much more practical for a family of four than you would first expect.
The 2022 Ford Puma scored a five-star ANCAP safety rating in 2019 and has six airbags as standard including dual frontal, side chest and side head.
