Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Ford had a good go at trying to spice-up the interior of the Cougar in comparison to the Mondeo so there are plenty of sporty touches. It feels like quite a large car to drive but is not intimidating to manoeuvre.

Being based upon the Mondeo, there is a fair bit of space within the Cougar. Rear bucket seats are a bit restrictive and taller passengers might find it wanting for headroom but even adults will find enough leg room. Front seats are also designed to be supportive which can be uncomfortable for some people.
