It is reported that the prototype of the high-performance version of the crossover with the ST index was seen at the Nürburgring race track. It has a lot of camouflage film and special panels that most hide the real look of the body of the novelty.

Even the standard versions of the Puma crossover are still rare, so it’s hard to see how the most powerful version of this car will differ. Large double-spoke wheels and a roof spoiler are among the most obvious differences so far. We also draw your attention to the height of the ground clearance, which was lower than that of the conventional model.

The new Puma crossover has a lot in common with the Fiesta model, and the “charged” performances of these cars will probably have the same engine.

“Hot” baby Fiesta is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with a capacity of 198 horsepower (290 Nm), which is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox.

Previously published teasers show that the standard Puma will have the same style as the Fiesta. Expect a wide false radiator grille with headlights on top of the bonnet. The curved roofline gives the crossover a stylish look. The luggage compartment offers 456 liters of cargo space and can hold two golf bags.

Expect the regular version of the Puma crossover to share a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine with a Fiesta model. The power of this motor is 153 hp Apparently the car will be available only with front wheel drive.

Ford will officially introduce the Puma crossover at the end of this year. The small crossover will go on sale first in Europe, and the “charged” performance of the ST will appear later. The availability of new items in other countries is not yet clear.
