Ford Puma Titanium X Is The Most Sophisticated Version Of The New Small SUV

The recently unveiled Ford Puma has become more stylish with the introduction of the new Titanium X. The model will sit in front of the audience at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, on September 10, and packs a number of innovations.

Among them, users will find lumbar massage front seats, a segment-first, as well as a novelty for the Dearborn automaker, namely removable and washable seat covers that will keep the interior looking fresh for a long time, providing extra peace of mind to parents and/or pet owners.

Aside from these, the new Puma Titanium X comes with a SYNC3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging pad, B&O sound system, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors as standard. The interior is enhanced by the wood-effect appliques, fabric inserts for the door panels and leather-effect steering wheel.

Spotting it on the road will be relatively easy, as it sports unique high gloss black finishes and chrome highlights on the honeycomb grille and fog lamp bezels integrated into the front air curtain inlets. Rounding up the exterior upgrades are chrome-accented side skirts, metallic grey highlights on the rear diffuser and skid plate, body-colored side mirror casings with integrated turn signals and puddle lights, and 18-inch Pearl Grey alloys with a 10-spoke design.

The Lane-Keeping System with Road Edge Detection and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection are standard equipment. Also offered are Lane Centering, Speed Sign Recognition and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go.

Available in two outputs, with either 125 PS (123 hp / 92 kW) or 155 PS (153 hp / 114 kW), the 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that also has a 11.5 kW belt-driven integrated starter/generator and 48-volt lithium-ion, air-cooled battery pack promises good fuel efficiency. In the WLTP test cycle, the less powerful variant returns 5.4 l/100 km (43.6 mpg US / 52.3 mpg UK) and emits 124 g of CO2 per km, whereas the more agile version burns 5.6 l/100 km (42 mpg US / 50.4 mpg UK) and its CO2 rating stands at 127 g/km.

    Seems like a cool little SUV, and it’s available with a stick. Much better than the dismal Ecosport penalty box we get here in the States

    • Matt

      Well to be fair all major markets received the EcoSport, including the UK and Europe. The US version was actually the most refined and improved variant for a time until those updates made it to the rest of the world.

      However it was still clearly a cut-price car designed for emerging markets but probably sold enough to justify Ford’s decision to sell it.

      I did read somewhere Ford dealers want this to replace the EcoSport, which I have a feeling it will.
      Ford might not want the public to know until the new Escape is already on sale.

  • Six_Tymes

    nice to see an suv with its own style. looks good.

  • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

    Cost ?

  • ME

    This will sell well in the US if the model included 1) E-brake, 2) adjustable seatbelts, 3) rear air vents. Otherwise the competition, like the Rogue Sport will have an advantage.

    Horrible guppy like front end.

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    it’s ironic that focus is not available with digital instrument panel

  • Alduin

    Looks like its melting and was put in the microwave for too long.

  • McFly

    Not ugly, but here is the Ford DNA? It looks like a Kia that wants to be a Peugeot that wants to be a Mazda or something.

    I hope Ford’s “Mustang inspired” SUV works out, so they can find their own design direction again.

    • Aeromann

      Yes, without the ford badge it’s impossible to know what is it.

    • Miknik

      Agreed, zero Ford DNA; Pleasant, but very derivative.

    • McFly

      On the other hand, most buyers in these segments probably don’t care that much about brand identity. “Pleasant” is probably good enough.
