Ford have announced that they will be adding a new Titanium X Sport model to the top of the Kuga range following high demands of the Titanium specification on other models within the Ford brand.
Approximately 80 per cent of buyers went for the Titanium and the Titanium X model when they were previous buyers were looking at other models. Ford therefore saw the potential for a better developed model at the top of the range . The new Titanium Sport Kuga model will cost an extra £2,950 than the other Titanium model in the range and just £200 more than the Titanium X.
Buyers will have the ability to choose from a 1.6 litre EcoBoost engine with 148 bhp or 179bhp or the higher 2.0 litre diesel engine. Each of the above two will be front wheel drive with the most powerful models being all wheel drive.
The latest Kuga model seems to have gone in at the deep end and in against the success crossover models such as the Nissan Qashqai and the Nissan Juke. Ford also developed the Eco Sport model to go up against the likes of Nissan and the Vauxhall Mokka.
A number of models seemed to have crossed over into the crossover market as it where and have created one of the most congested markets in the automotive industry. The larger 4x4 family offering has taken the success from the likes of the Renault Scenic and the Citroen Picasso models and seem to offer a more sporty look and feel.
Nissan who are currently leaders in the market have announced how they have felt the squeeze of other models being added to the market. The Japanese firm warned other manufacturers not to over pack the market and instead offer an alternative.
The Ford Kuga is a prime example of that alternative model and has found itself steering clear of the congestion.
