With showrooms in Christchurch, Ringwood and Verwood, Keith Motors can proudly point to 40-year association with Ford Motor Company, and next year they will be celebrating its 70th anniversary.

Established in 1951 by Charles Keith, with the original Keith Motors then located on Christchurch High Street, and offering all the services a garage in those days would provide, Keith Motors has moved with the times, expanding both the business and its client base, without ever losing sight of putting the customer first.

So, what does the new Ford Puma bring to the party? Well, safety is one feature at the heart of the new Puma.  Its many inventive elements ensure that driving is simply a joy, with the Ford Co-Pilot360 introducing an impressive set of assistance technologies that work together to help manage acceleration, braking, and even steering. With the inclusion of adaptive cruise control, pre-collision assist and even evasive steering assist, you’ll know you’re in safe hands every time you venture out onto the roads. Its thrilling driving experience isn’t limited to the technology imbued within it though; better than any small SUV on the market, the new Ford Puma very much takes the fiesta fun factor and quite literally "pumps it up".

Bournemouth Echo:

Reimagined as a delectably sporty crossover, the all-new Puma marries an agile and fun drive with a high driving position to put you firmly in control of your adventures. Powered by a new mild hybrid 1.0 EcoBoost engine, the Puma is fast on its feet and there are Selectable Drive Modes to enjoy including Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Trail modes. Choose from Titanium, ST-Line and ST-Line X trim levels. An 8” SYNC 3 touchscreen, cruise control, rear parking sensors, a Quickclear heated windscreen and wireless phone charging are standard features. Step up to ST-Line to get a sports styling kit and a fully digital 12.3” instrument cluster or go top-spec with the ST-Line X to bag yourself a B&O Premium Audio System and plush part leather upholstery and trim.

For anyone concerned about the emissions, you’ll be relieved to know that it’s been taken care of. Not only does the car create low Co2 emissions, but it also gives you better fuel economy while maintaining an outstanding performance, making the car quicker off the mark and giving you extra power when you need it.

The CO2 emission readings are from 124g/km (NEDC), with and a combined cycle WLTP fuel return of 52.3mpg. If you really don't like mild hybrid petrol tech, you can ask about the alternative 1.5-litre diesel variant that's is being developed.

If you’re often perplexed by the task of fitting all of the necessities of a weekend away into the boot, so much so that it soon ends up resembling a jigsaw puzzle, then allow the Ford Puma to come to the rescue. With its Ford ‘Megabox’, the boot is capable of more than you’d first think; water tight extra storage, a drainage plug that works well for any muddy shoes, the capability to fill it with ice to use as a rather unconventional ice bucket, or even stand your golf clubs upright. No matter how you fill the space, you’ll be comforted in the knowledge that there’s plenty more where that came from. At 456-litres, it's one of the very biggest trunks in the small SUV segment and is accessed by a powered hands-free tailgate. There's also an adjustable-height floor that can be folded back against the back seats.

Keith Motors stocks the complete Ford range, from the familiar Ford Fiesta hatchback to the popular Ford Kuga Family SUV. The Ford Fiesta remains the nation’s best seller. The new Ford Focus is just as impressive and has a superb reputation with leading specifications. Business users and larger families will also be delighted by the Ford Mondeo.

Bournemouth Echo:

Those looking for more flexibility will be equally impressed by Ford’s range of people carriers. The Ford C-MAX seats five people in a sporty style and the Ford Grand C-MAX accommodates seven passengers with the added convenience of sliding doors. Those needing even more space, the Ford Galaxy is an MPV genius. However, if it’s a sportier feel you’re after Keith Motors also stocks the new Ford S-MAX (seven-seater) and the Ford Kuga SUV.
