BRENTWOOD England – Ford of Britain has announced a new, high-specification, luxury version of the Kuga - the Titanium X Sport.
Kuga sales remain strong in the UK with over 7,500 sold year-to-date, with over 80 per cent of customers opting for high specification Titanium or Titanium X models. Some 85 per cent of those customers also add the optional appearance pack , while more than 40 per cent choose the convenience pack, which includes power fold door mirrors and Active Park Assist. The segment-first hands-free power tailgate has also proved popular with 25 per cent of customers selecting the kick-activated tailgate opening.
Explaining the decision to introduce the Titanium X Sport version, Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain managing director said: “With strong customer demand for the Kuga and the majority of buyers choosing the luxury and refinement of the Titanium X with optional extras, it made perfect sense to introduce the range-topping Titanium X Sport. The Kuga is fuel-efficient, high-tech and capable and the Titanium X Sport combines all this and more to provide the ultimate package.”
Compared with the Kuga Titanium X, the Titanium X Sport adds sports styling: body-coloured front, rear and side skirts, body-coloured wheel arches, large rear spoiler, high gloss rear diffuser, front silver skid plate, high-gloss black bumper detailing, unique 19-in alloy wheels, chrome roof rails and dark rear windows with privacy glass. Technology options such as Sony DAB Navigation system, Rear View Camera, Active Park Assist and power folding door mirrors have also been standardised.
The first Kuga Titanium X Sports models are expected to be delivered to the UK market from October 2013. Prices start at £28,345.
