The Puma nameplate has been used for two distinctly different Ford models; as a sport compact built throughout the years 1997 – 2001 and later in 2019 as a crossover SUV. The sport compact was a three-door coupe marketing predominantly for the European market and was manufactured in the Niehl Plant Cologne in Germany. All models had front engines and front-wheel drive with just four seats and 15-inch wheels as standard. It was based on the Mark 4 Fiesta and had four different engine variants available; 1.4-litre, 1.6-litre, 1.7-litre and the 1.7-liter tuned.
At one point 133,000 units were on the road with 52,950 registered with the DVLA in the UK. Ford brought out a millennium edition which was the first car to ever be fully designed on a computer in Britain. 1,000 were made of this limited edition, all in zinc yellow, other special editions included Black, Thunder and the Racing Puma.
Ford created a one-off kit car designed specifically for rally racing, it had a 55-liter bag fuel tank located under the rear floor. The Puma’s success can be somewhat attributed to a well-received advertising campaign featuring Steeve McQueen and clips of the film Bullet.
Ford decided to cease production in 2001 without the intention of replacing the vehicle. The Ford Street Ka began sales shortly after but as it was a 2-seat convertible, it wasn’t a true alternative.
The original Puma won Top Gear’s Car of the year for the category ‘the incredible feeling and driving sensation.’
Ford brought back the most recent edition of the Puma in 2019 as a subcompact crossover SUV. It is actually considered the 7th generation of the Fiesta and is only sold in the European and Australasian markets.
The new Puma is considered a ‘mild hybrid’ with a 1-litre Ecoboost gasoline engine. It scored 5 stars on NCAP’s safety test in 2019, scoring 94% and 84% for adults and children respectively and went on to win What Cars ‘Car of the Year’ in 2020.
