Ford Kuga Titanium Plus: to buy or not to buy

Ford Kuga Titanium Plus: to buy or not to buy

24.07.2015
Power of this car is 182 horsepower. Hence the question: does it worth to cough up on the most expensive options?

This time test-drive was visited by the Ford Kuga in the top version Titanium Plus with enormous amount of options. Power of this car is 182 horsepower. Hence the question: does it worth to cough up on the most expensive options?

Earlier the Ford Kuga with the Trend Plus version underwent test-drive. The Titanium is a more expensive version but comparing the exterior one can notice one distinction – its glossy grill which is edged with brilliant piping. And the version Titanium Plus is more tricked out: there are 19-inch disks, improved rear spoiler, LED lamps etc. Though price difference between Titanium and Titanium Plus makes up 200 000 roubles.

Engine and automatic transmission

The first thing we should pay attention to is the engine of this car. It is worth saying that it surprised us to the upside because, firstly, it’s more powerful than its predecessor and, secondly, it turned to be more compliant with transmission. Like the engine, the automatic transmission operated in a worthy manner. During the speed change, no jerks were felt; lowed transmission turned reasonably when it was necessary. We fell under impression that the manufacturer had been able to reach the ideal cooperation between the transmission and engine.

Fuel consumption also made good impression. It was almost identical to 150 h.p. version of the motor.

As for the wheels, despite that bore diameter was increased; ride comfort of the car remained the same.

Cabin

Of course, in the top version of the crossover there will be installed leather seats though it is not a necessity. There are such drivers who consider tissue finish admissible and some not in the least like leather cabin.

Multimedia system also pleased. The manufacturer paid much attention to it. In comparison with the previous version of Trend Plus, display has been increased from 4.6 to 5 inches. Good quality of the graphics is worth noticing. Unfortunately, the Kuga does not have a big display but then it’s reasonable to buy a version with the biggest display.

The top version includes xenon lamps which cope with the function completely. LED lamps are unavailable yet.

About useless

The most useless thing of this car is contactless boot opening. We were not able to learn how to open it with a single wave of leg and, thus, jeans owners can always be stained by the bumper. It is also worth noting stowaway tables for the passengers of the second row. They are uncomfortable in use and close the pocket ins erted into the front seats.

As for the panoramic roof, only passengers sitting in the second row can feel its fascination to the full. If the driver does not have a family, who will need this roof? The question of its necessity depends on who will be in the car with the driver.

Conclusion

The most suitable variant is the Titanium version with options of xenon lamps and another se t of options which will suit the taste of a new owner. You can take the most powerful engine since its consumption characteristics are the same as in the less powerful one, and the power is quite higher but the tax on it will be high. Of course every driver will choose the version according to his own preferences; therefore, it is recommended to consider all alternative options.
