Puma was launched in 1997 - shortly after the Ka - and was the second model to benefit from Ford's 'New Edge' design philosophy. It got its claws into buyers with sleek lines, feline-look headlamps and a chassis that was matched by a sporty-feeling 1.7 engine. Underneath it's essentially a tuned-up Fiesta - and it shares all it's major components with Ford's long-running supermini.

There’s now a wide range of models on the market, with retail prices starting at around £5,000.

The Puma's successor resulted in a very different type of car, replacing the sporty coupe body for a larger SUV. Read more about the 2019 Ford Puma SUV here
