The Kuga made its debut (as an imported model) in China at the 2012 Beijing motor show. Ford and its local partner Changan Auto started to roll out the Kuga in late 2012 and release it on January 22, 2013. At their joint venture’s No.2 plant in Chongqing, the compact SUV shares the C1 platform wither the Focus.

By the end of October 2013, 75,567 units of the Changan-Ford Kuga were delivered. While frequently ranked among the top ten in monthly sales, it lags significantly behind VW Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Hyundai ix35.

In the second half of 2013, numerous Kuga owners have reported broken axles on their vehicles. As the exposed cases share similar traits and mostly took place in normal operations of the vehicles, many suspected Changan-Ford employed faulty parts or assembly the SUV improperly. The joint venture has so far (as of late November 2013) refused to acknowledge any defects in product quality in relation to these incidents.

In 2014, with 135,998 sales, the Kuga was the fifth best-selling SUV in China.
