The New Ford Ka is marketed as a small car with big ideas, fun-loving and spontaneous, the Ford Ka lives for the moment. Ford is particularly good at making cars that leave a grin on your face at the end of a journey. And the new Ka does exactly that.
The old model has successfully kept at bay all of its rivals, and has consistently remained the UK's top-selling sub-mini car. When it was launched 12 years' ago, the original Ka had only four rivals, and the sector accounted for just 4 per cent of the UK market.
The new Ford Ka is receiving excellent reviews from the media and was recently previewed on BBC's Top Gear showing itself as a real winner.
There is a new 1.2-litre 68bhp petrol engine which Ford claims has cut fuel consumption by 21 per cent compared to the previous 1.3-litre Ka. This also puts the Ka into group B road tax banding, which means you pay only £35 a year. Insurance groups start from a first time driver friendly group 1.
The new Ford Ka is to keep the compact structure characteristic of the older version of the model and, the producer hopes, is likewise going to become as popular among users as the previous version. In the course of 12-years production of the older Ford Ka 1.4 billion cars were produced.
