Ford has revealed the all-new Ka+ small car, which promises outstanding interior space, excellent fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive dynamics at a value price.
Joining Ford’s small-car line-up alongside the Fiesta, the Ka+ will be available to order now with deliveries later this year - prices start at £8,995.
The Ka+ is slightly shorter than the Fiesta, but 29 millimetres taller, with an optimised interior that offers space for five people at an overall length of less than 4 metres.
With a 270-litre boot, there is enough luggage space for two large suitcases plus 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and 21 stowage locations for small items throughout the cabin.
A MyFord Dock in the centre of the instrument panel enables occupants to store, mount and charge mobile devices such as phones and navigation systems. A hidden stowage bin within the end of the instrument panel is only accessible when the driver’s door is open, allowing valuables to be hidden out of sight.
The powertrain line-up is based on a new 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine. Available with a choice of 70 PS and 85 PS power outputs, it features twin-independent variable camshaft timing technology to enhance performance, fuel efficiency and emissions.
Both engine options achieve CO2 emissions of 114 g/km, with combined fuel consumption of 56.5 mpg.
Standard equipment includes air-conditioning, Ford SYNC infotainment system with voice activation and MyKey which allows owners to set maximum speed and audio volume limits.
When choosing the 85hp model, customers also can specify a range of attractive optional features including electronic climate control, leather steering wheel with cruise control, heated front seats, DAB audio system, rear parking sensors, power rear windows and heated/power folding door mirrors, privacy glass and 15-inch alloy wheels.
Darren Palmer, Ford’s small car vehicle line director, said: “Choosing a compact car should not mean having to compromise, our all-new Ka+ lives up to the high standards set by our Ford Fiesta, B-MAX and EcoSport compact cars by delivering the style, space, advanced technology and refinement that European customers want.”
