    I see on Ford’s website that you can now order the new Puma in automatic guise. The auto version can’t be had as a mild hybrid in automatic as it’s just a normal 7-speed auto. What’s more, you can only have the 125 engine and not the more powerful 155 in auto. Price difference between manual & auto is about £1,800 for all versions.

    Sooo… I’m assuming the new Puma, which I really like the look of, will shortly be on the Motability list? Having to have the auto version of a car is a bit of a drag for most of us to say the least… but let’s hope Ford don’t put too high an advance payment on it. I really like the look/size of this car and it’s getting very good reviews indeed from the motoring Press. I’ve seen a few around the roads of South Hampshire now & it’s on my shortlist for a couple of months time… providing the AP isn’t too stupid!

    I like the look of the Puma. However, I fail to see why a 7 speed auto means it can’t be a mild hybrid?

    Those were my initial thoughts Bandit. I don’t know yet as it’s too early and I haven’t been to see one or read about the auto version online yet – but it would appear that Ford have hurried an auto version to market without much thought and just to entice would-be buyers away from other car manufacturer’s.
