The Puma small front wheel drive sports coupe was unveiled at the 1997 Geneva Motor Show. It was Ford's first test of its strength in this sector of the European market. Puma's debut came at a time when small car sales in Europe were booming. The idea of creating a car was born at the end of 1993. The designers were faced with the task of building a real sports coupe on a mass platform. The new model is the first car of the company, the styling of which is entirely developed on the computer. The process took 135 days instead of the usual extra year...

The car is based on the Fiesta IV. The creators completely redesigned the body and modified the suspension from the Fiesta, making it more sporty. The springs were also strengthened, a more powerful anti-roll bar at the front was introduced, the rigidity of the twisted beam at the rear was increased by 30%. The lengthened base, large windshield angle and increased overhangs gave the Puma a fast and dynamic look.

The design of the car is very interesting and, like other recent Ford models, it is made in the corporate style of the New Edge. The salon pleases with such stylish elements aswhite instrument scales and aluminum inserts. The front seats are very comfortable, with excellent lateral support, but there is not enough space in the back, even for people of average height.

The Puma was equipped with 4-cylinder 16-valve injection engines of the Zetec SE family with a volume of 1.4; 1.6 and 1.7 liters. The volume of which is increased due to cylinder bore (diameter 80 instead of 76 mm) and lengthening the piston stroke (83.5 instead of 76.5 mm). For the first time, a variable valve timing mechanism developed in collaboration with INA Motorenele-mente Schaeffler KG has been used for a Ford. The engine has a capacity of 125 hp.... and a flat torque characteristic, 85% of which is provided in the 1500-6750 rpm range. mechanical short-stroke transmission. Power from 90 to 125 hp.

The engine is coupled with a sporty five-speed manual gearbox with a short lever. The front wheel drive axles are of equal length, which improves the stability of the vehicle under heavy acceleration, especially when cornering and changing lanes. The clutch is hydraulically driven.

For all its sportiness, Puma turned out to be quite economical - top consumptionliv is 7.4 l / 100 km.

The designers paid particular attention to the stability of the Puma on wet surfaces at high speeds. Between the extreme positions of the steering wheel - 2.9 turns, the turning diameter - 10 meters. The front ventilated disc brakes, the rear drum remained. Four-channel ABS is standard. Low-profile tires on wide rims are offered in only one size - 195/50.

And the trunk volume for a sports coupe is more than sufficient: 240 liters - if you do not fold the rear seats, and 750 liters -if folded.

The creation of the car cost the company more than $ 66 million.

In addition to the standard version, a racing version of Racing Puma was also prepared with a 1.7-liter engine, boosted to 155 hp.

Puma production ended in 2001.
