Press release:

The new Ford Kuga has arrived and Cobra Technology & Lifestyle dresses up the new compact SUV with exclusive stainless-steel components that represent classic off-road design.

The components include a high-gloss stainless-steel tubular front guard that meets the strict EU requirements for pedestrian protection. The elastically mounted Cobra Technology & Lifestyle front guard has a tube diameter of 60 millimeters. It comes with EG operating certificate, eliminating the need for individual inspections. The front guard itself can be further upgraded with auxiliary high-beam headlights that are sold in a ready-to-install kit.

Alternatively the front of the Kuga can be modified with the smaller Cobra CITYGUARD® component also made from stainless steel. This protection element features a tube diameter of 48 millimeters and is attached to the underside of the front apron.

The face of the Kuga can be upgraded with a high-gloss stainless-steel bumper grille that complements both front guard versions.

For easier entering and exiting of the vehicle and to protect the rocker panels the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle designers and engineers have developed custom-tailored rocker panel guards with integrated steps beneath front and rear doors. The high-gloss stainless-steel rocker panel guards have a tube diameter of 80 millimeters and are sold as a ready-to-install set. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle also offers aluminum running boards to upgrade the SUV.

Self-adhesive black rub strips protect all four doors of the Kuga against dents and scratches often caused by errant shopping carts or carelessly opened doors.

To protect the back of the vehicle against minor parking damage the rear apron can be fitted with a Cobra Technology & Lifestyle high-gloss stainless-steel rear guard on the left and right side.

Cobra Technology & Lifestyle also offers custom-tailored one-piece and multi-piece light-alloy wheels for the new Ford. Especially exclusive: The Cobra Sahara 8.5Jx20 multi-spoke wheel with lockable hub.

To add some visual pizzazz to the stock exhaust system Cobra Technology & Lifestyle have developed two chrome exhaust tips with 103-mm diameter to replace their production counterparts.
