the new Ford KA+ is bold and it drives with a sense of adventure. A larger size
and five doors bring an extra helping of practicality to this compact car made
for the city.
Soft curves, an oversized and slim shape put the KA+ firmly in the city car segment, while the flat-fronted bonnet and grille give it a chunky, sporty look. The interior design mirrors an upmarket hatchback with its hexagonal dashboard design and low-set gear knob position. A device dock will hold your smartphone in place so you can follow the map using an app.
Ford has kept options simple with the KA+. There are three trim levels to choose from: Studio, Zetec and Zetec Colour editions. The popular Zetec trim adds a 4.2-inch screen in the dashboard for controlling the music and making calls. Cruise control is also included in this upgraded trim. For style, the Zetec Colour is the trim to go for with contrasting monochrome paint on the roof and wing mirrors, 15-inch black alloy wheels and rear privacy glass.
An increase in roof height allows for plenty of headroom for both front and rear passengers, and as the driver, you benefit from an upright seating position for a strong road view. Using the SYNC system, which is standard on the Zetec, you can connect your smartphone to use the apps while on the move. Air conditioning comes in the Zetec too, and you can opt to add heated seats for a treat in winter.
Performance and efficiency
The KA+ is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine in either 69bhp or 83bhp, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. CO2 emissions are as low as 114g/km and mpg figures reach 56 on the combined cycle, making it economic to drive around the city, every day.
As standard, the KA+ boasts electronic stability control to prevent you from swerving when driving around corners and hill-start assist which stops you rolling back on incline starts. You can opt to add parking sensors to help you get into tight spaces safely.
