The impressive Ford Kuga has been boosted with a new top of the range model called the Titanium X Sport and is now the highest spec model available.
With most of the demand for the Kuga coming for the top two models in the line-up, hopes are high that the Titanium X Sport will be a big seller – and it should be, since 80% of Ford Kuga sales are for the excellent Titanium and Titanium X models.
Engines and spec for the Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport
The vehicle will sit above the existing Titanium and Titanium X, as well as Zetec, models to boost the range.
The vehicle has the choice of either a petrol or diesel 1.6 litre EcoBoost engine or a 2.0 litre version. When fitted into the other Kuga models, the diesel engines return around 53 mpg with CO2 emissions of 139g/km, and that should be the same for this version too.
The petrol engines are less economical to run and should return around 36 mpg with CO2 emissions of 179g/km.
Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport is packed with equipment
The new Titanium X Sport is also packed with loads of standard kit including a rear view camera, silver roof rails and alloy wheels. There’s also a DAB radio, a parallel parking system, satnav and heated leather seats.
To help it stand out from the crowd, and from its fellow Kugas, this version will also get a body styling kit and a large panoramic glass roof.
There’s also quite impressive list of options for the Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport including a useful hands-free tailgate (one of the most popular options taken up by Kuga customers) and keyless opening.

The Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport has the choice of two or four-wheel-drive with an impressive all-wheel drive system that continuously readjusts the power directed to the wheels to bring the best blend of traction and handling that the vehicle can provide.
With prices starting at £28,345 for the Ford Kuga Titanium X Sport with a 1.6 litre petrol engine and rising to £33,495 in the 2.0 litre diesel version with automatic gearbox and four-wheel-drive.
The new model goes on sale in July and looks set to be a hit from the off because this is a very popular vehicle for the Blue Oval – the new version is selling 40% more than its predecessor since being launched in March 2013.
