Totally agree, it looks like it came off an Austin Allegro 😂😂.

I can’t see any visible exhaust tailpipe on the ST Line model photo’s, I assume it’s one of those 90 degree, downward facing ones like on an old diesel 🤔.

Not too impressed with the auto only on the 155 model. Soon you won’t be able to buy a new manual car any more.

@Ron240 keep it in the garage pal, no more trips to Scotland 🤣
I think he lives in Scotland :lol:.
He does. :D
Funnily enough I did think about the potential increase in value to my car in light of this news.
At the end of this month it will be 8 months old and currently has 799 miles on the clock. :lol:

The famous Allegro 'Quartic' steering wheel. :lol:
Thats exactly what I thought when I seen the photo, although I dont think it looks bad at all in the new Puma. :)

Good spot. Not sure I like that. Surely there will be something to allow you to do a flick wipe. Maybe the windscreen washing is now on the touch screen. Not a great idea if it is.

I see OTA software updates will be available on the new Puma.
This would save a lot of people all the hassle they are having now...or maybe that's just members of this forum. :lol:
Seriously though its poor that this wasn't already standard.

Having just bought a Puma ST X 155 Manual in November on a great deal, I am chuffed to see that car not available in the “new” model and the Auto version £3k more at RRP, without further factoring in the discount and superb 0% finance package which meant a few grand more in my account from interest over 2 years too. :)

Don’t normally hit a winner when a new version of a car you just got lands.

No Vignale so I may look elsewhere. In 2 weeks I'm off to see what the new Lexus LBX is all about. It's the 2024 car of the year and competes with the new Puma on price. I'm not sure about the CVT transmission. The rest of the car I like. The Premium Plus seems the one to go for.

I agree Mike. In 2 or 3 years time i think they could be demanding good money.
Our 2021 ST PP has gone up £1600 this month, back up to £20k, paid £26850 for it new 3 years ago in June

I had a quick look at the specs for my Puma and for the equivalent it would cost me approx 10k more than when i purchased mine although i would have got electric tailgate and a couple of other smaller items which were options when i purchased . Not sure how they justify £800 for Black though and the other option prices look like they have increased.
I was thinking about going back to a Puma at some point but unless the build quality is vastly improved ( which was acceptable when the car was low 20's) , or they look amazing in the flesh unfortunately I don't think i will be purchasing another.
With the standard trim and couple of extras mine had i was nearly up to the price of my 128Ti with options.
