The latest model of the Ford Escape/Kuga SUV has been turning the heads of environmentalists after being certified to provide 33 mpg fuel efficiency with an automatic transmission.

The figures, which have been released by the U.S Environment Protection Agency, are fantastic news for the Ford Motor Company, who have been working tirelessly to improve the fuel efficiency on all of its models.
