During the recent press conference in Frankfurt, John Fleming — Ford`s European CEO said he`s expecting the Ford Kuga to sell out next June, when it hits the market in Europe. `Experience over the last few years has said that if you get the design right, you get the basics right,` said Fleming.

In the present the segment is dominated by the RAV4 from Toyota.
