Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport hits the showrooms

Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport trim will top the Kuga compact SUV range priced from £28,595

The Ford Kuga now has a new range-topping Titanium X Sport trim level, following high demand for the previous flagship Titanium and Titanium X models.

Around 80 per cent of buyers went for Titanium or Titanium X when they specced up their Kuga, so Ford saw the potential for an even better equipped model at the very top of the range. The Titanium X Sport costs an extra £2,950 over a Titanium model and £200 more than a Titanium X Kuga.

As well as leather upholstery, heated front seats and a panoramic roof – all of which is standard on Titanium X – the Sport gets 19-inch alloys, a sporty bodykit, sat-nav, self-parking, a rear view camera and rear tinted windows.

Buyers can choose between a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol – with 148bhp or 179bhp – or a 2.0-litre TDCi diesel boasting 138bhp or 161bhp. The lower-powered variants of each engine are front-wheel drive, while the more powerful units are all-wheel drive. An automatic gearbox is also available in the more powerful models.
