Perhaps I'm a Luddite, but Ford have done away with the physical controls to deal with fan speed, temoeeature control etc. So more prodding and poking at the screen. Just why ?

You're right. Looks like it's on the bottom line of the screen now. You can see +/- icons either side of the temperature display on the left. Heated seats on there too.

Other noticeable changes are that this car finally gets lane centring rather than lane keeping and dynamic headlights for cornering. Big upgrades in my opinion. https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedi ... cted-.html

Surprised it still has a manual handbrake.

Only auto in anything but the 125.

Steering wheel looks horrible.

At least the armrest is bigger. Hopefully it can accommodate an arm!

Rear lights - if anything needed upgrading it was them!

Not the best facelift in my opinion.

I picked up a Focus Estate to sit alongside our Puma and the touch screen controls are surprisingly quick and easy to use as they stay on the bottom of the touch screen. Sync 4 feels much cleaner to use too.

Yeah not the best, Manual and 1,5 engine gone in ST

And the instrument cluster a monolithic rectangle not a fan

Might look different in reality and sitting in it , I wonder if it still has the awful parcel shelf and terrible clips that keep popping off 🙈

The facelift Puma will not be sold in Australia

Puma has been selling about 2400 a year in Aus
Low numbers I think due to
Low supply from Ford Europe

Just to compare
Mazda Cx 3 with a two litre na petrol engine and six speed auto sells some 15000 a year

Ford will sell the Puma ev in Aus

I own a 22 Puma and prev had 3 Focus and Fiesta and before coy cars mid life had a Cortina Escort and first car a 100e

I m bitterly disappointed now that I cannot but a euro Ford new in Aus
