I recenlty read an old article on the Cougar from when it first came out. The article was talking about the Cougar and some of the design features. There were a few things that I found interesting that I hadn't heard before, one was that the Cougar was based more off the Mondeo than the Contour. I know both are very similar, but the article said that the Cougars brakes were off the Mondeo. The article also said that the Cougar had the Mondeo rather than the Contour body supports which are stiffer making the Cougar unibody about 20% more ridgid than the Contour. Lastly it said the reasoning for the bubbles in the headlights were to create a cushion of air to help cool the projection beam headlight and prevent melting the platic.
Just a little Cougar trivia for everyone.
