Update: We’ve now had the chance to spend 10 days with the diesel KA. Read our in-depth review of the Ford KA 1.3 Zetec.
Well, it’s been a long time coming. But finally Ford has launched the New Ford KA.
Ford has a lot to live up to with the new KA. The old KA was such a success, for so long, it’s a hard act to follow. But it has a great starting point – it’s built on the same architecture as the Fiat 500 – the car in the class.
Ford claims its KA buyers are the happiest Ford buyers. That may say more about the profile of the old KA driver than the car, but it gives the new KA a lot to live up to. So how does it stack up?
Available initially with a couple of Fiat engines – a 1.2 petrol and a 1.3 diesel – and a selection of four trim levels – Studio, Style, Style+ and Zetec, the Ford KA is priced to sell, with prices starting at under £8,000 – cheaper than the entry level Fiat 500.
So what has the new KA got to offer – apart from being a cute, and stylish city car?
