The components include a high-gloss stainless-steel tubular front guard that meets the strict EU requirements for pedestrian protection. The elastically mounted Cobra Technology & Lifestyle front guard has a tube diameter of 60 millimetres. It comes with EG operating certificate, eliminating the need for individual inspections. The front guard itself can be further upgraded with auxiliary high-beam headlights that are sold in a ready-to-install kit.
Alternatively the front of the Kuga can be modified with the smaller Cobra Cityguard component also made from stainless steel. This protection element features a tube diameter of 48 millimetres and is attached to the underside of the front apron. The face of the Kuga can be upgraded with a high-gloss stainless-steel bumper grille that complements both front guard versions.
For easier entering and exiting of the vehicle and to protect the rocker panels the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle designers and engineers have developed custom-tailored rocker panel guards with integrated steps beneath front and rear doors. The high-gloss stainless-steel rocker panel guards have a tube diameter of 80 millimetres and are sold as a ready-to-install set. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle also offers aluminium running boards to upgrade the SUV.
To protect the back of the vehicle against minor parking damage the rear apron can be fitted with a Cobra Technology & Lifestyle high-gloss stainless-steel rear guard on the left and right side.
Cobra Technology & Lifestyle also offers custom-tailored one-piece and multi-piece light-alloy wheels for the new Ford. Especially exclusive: The Cobra Sahara 8.5Jx20 multi-spoke wheel with lockable hub. To add some visual pizzazz to the stock exhaust system Cobra Technology & Lifestyle have developed two chrome exhaust tips with 103-mm diameter to replace their production counterparts.Ford updates the Kuga range
