The mild hybrid support is intended to reduce consumption and costs for the small Ford SUV. Find out if this works here.
"With bite? A bit! Yes, the narrow Puma is the best here in terms of handling and driving performance, but it bounces horribly, is expensive, should brake more aggressively." The judgment of the test editor Sebastian Renz about the small Ford SUV is divided - and in terms of costs, not much positive can be expected. But how thirsty and expensive is the Ford Puma in the model version 1.0 Ecoboost Hybrid Titanium X in everyday life?
Our test consumption
The mild hybrid drive of the small Cologne native is intended to reduce consumption. In the test, it only manages to do so insufficiently: although Ford promises a WLTP standard consumption of 5.5 liters per 100 kilometers, it consumes an average of 6.9 liters in the test. That raises the fuel costs over this distance to 11.59 euros. Even at a leisurely pace, thirst falls only just below the WLTP value: consumption of 5.3 liters reduces the equivalent value of the tanked petrol to 8.90 euros. At the other extreme, namely on the sports lap, fuel consumption increases to 8.9 liters and, as a result, fuel costs to 14.94 euros. These are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal mehr-tanken.de (October 5th, 2021 /Super E5: 1.679 euros/litre).
Monthly maintenance costs
If you own a Ford Puma 1.0 Ecoboost Hybrid Titanium X, you have to reckon with a vehicle tax of 86 euros per year. According to Allianz Direct , 246 euros will be due for liability insurance in the same period. The upgrades for partial and fully comprehensive cover cost 288 and 476 euros a year, respectively. All in all, the Ford SUV costs 240 euros per month if it is driven 15,000 kilometers a year. If the mileage doubles, this sum increases to 438 euros. The loss of value plays no role in this calculation.
How to test
The auto motor und sport test consumption consists of three differently weighted consumption drives. So-called “commuter consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work, which averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical, approx. 275-kilometre-long eco-lap is included in the rating with 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver lap. The length is roughly the same as the eco lap, but the route includes a larger proportion of motorway and thus higher speeds on average. The basis for calculating the fuel costs is always the price quoted on the "more tanken" portal on the day the article was created.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The calculation is based on the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz Direct, including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (accident-free/15,000 km per year/resident in the postcode area 70174/not under 21/partner driver older than 25 years).
The Ford Puma 1.0 Ecoboost Hybrid Titanium X with 125 hp 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo petrol engine costs at least 28,000 euros and consumes an average of 6.9 liters, which results in fuel costs of 11.59 euros per 100 kilometers. The monthly maintenance costs are 240 euros for an annual mileage of 15,000 kilometers. If this increases to 30,000 kilometers, the sum increases to 438 euros.
