For years the Ford KA has been providing keen drivers with fun and affordable motoring in a stylish and cheeky package. Now it’s time for the KA to grow up, and it goes by the name KA+.
The evolution from KA to KA+ hasn’t diminished the smallest Ford’s cheeky appeal, but it has made it more practical thanks to an extra set of doors that make accessing the rear seats a piece of cake.
The distinctive grille means the KA+ now looks every inch part of the Ford family, while upgrading to the top-of-the-range Zetec trim level brings smart 15-inch alloy wheels for those who love to make a style statement.
A range of colour options include cool blues and vibrant reds, shades ranging from white to black, gold and bright yellow.
The practical interior includes space for five and a surprisingly spacious boot that’s only a little smaller than a Fiesta’s. The dashboard includes the genius MyFord Dock that will grip your smartphone securely in place so you can use it as a sat-nav.
Every KA+ includes an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, an AUX in socket, and electric front windows.
Zetec models include air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with remote audio controls, a DAB digital radio, all-around electric windows and Ford’s SYNC system where you can wirelessly connect your smartphone to the car for hands-free calls and music streaming.
The KA+ is a masterclass in keeping things simple, and that includes the engine range. Every KA+ is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Entry-level Studio models have 69bhp and emit 114g/km of CO2 while achieving 56.5mpg. Upgrade to the Zetec model and you have the option of an 84bhp version with the same fuel eco credentials.
Safety isn’t something you should have to sacrifice because you’re driving an affordable small car, so every KA+ includes an Electronic Stability Programme, hill start assist, a speed limiter and six airbags. Zetec models add cruise control to make long-distance drivers less tiresome too.
