Ford has revealed its high spec Ford Puma Titanium X model ahead of its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany next week, writes Trish Whelan.
Ford say it will have a distinctive character all of its own, and standard technologies usually reserved for large executive cars deliver ‘exceptional comfort for compact crossover customers’.
It will offer premium comfort and convenience including standard removable seat covers, lumbar massage seats, wireless charging for smartphone devices, a segment-first hands-free tailgate and a premium B&O Sound System.
Offered in 125hp and 155hp variants, the self-regulating mild-hybrid system can utilise the stored battery charge to deliver torque substitution, reducing the amount of work needed from the petrol engine for a fuel efficiency improvement of up to 9pc based on WLTP analysis.
Ford say New Puma delivers best-in-class 456 litre rear load space and with rear seats folded flat, can fit two golf bags in an upright position. Or with the lid down, the space can be used to conceal dirty sports equipment or muddy Wellington boots.
The car also comes with sophisticated driver assistance technologies.
Ford Puma EcoBoost hybrid 125hp has C02 emissions from 124g/km, fuel efficiency from 5.4 L/100kms for the 125hp variant. The 155hp emits from 127g/km and has fuel efficiency from 5.6 L/100km.
