Ford’s dinky city car has been given a big overhaul. Extra space, more economical and with a handful of additional features, it’s more practical and enjoyable to drive than ever before. It’s available to buy and test drive now. Available in two trim levels, Studio and Zetec, you can select the KA+ that suits your idea of luxury.
The new KA+ looks more sophisticated than the previous model. It is bigger, now the size of a supermini for a more assertive on-road stance. You’ll also notice extra updates such as daytime running lights, chrome grille inserts and more angular headlights.
Its tail is larger and more sculpted, making it a true city car/supermini crossover, and it has five doors for extra practicality when it comes to getting children and baggage in the back seats.
As a five-seater, it’s much easier to ferry friends and family around town. All of the controls are arranged on a broad central panel in the dashboard and the gear knob is placed conveniently high up so you don’t have to strain to reach it.
There’s a handy phone port at the top of the dashboard so you can follow apps on your smartphone like satellite navigation. Opt to add heated seats to beat the cold snap of early winter mornings. In the Zetec, you get air conditioning and steering wheel controls.
With Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports as standard, you can listen to whatever music you like and take calls while you drive. Upgrade to the Zetec to get DAB digital radio, SYNC voice controls and a 4.2-inch TFT screen in the dashboard that displays the infotainment.
This nimble city car/supermini crossover comes packed with technology to keep you safe while you drive around. As standard, it has an electronic stability programme, speed limiter and hill start assist. As well as helping you to maintain a controlled drive, you’ll also find they make the experience much more relaxing.
The new KA+ is powered by a punchy 1.2-litre petrol engine delivering 69bhp. There’s the option to upgrade to 83bhp in the Zetec. A gear shift indicator and Start/Stop technology help you to save on fuel and it has CO2 emissions as low as 114g/km. Electronic power-assisted steering makes the steering much lighter so it’s easier to navigate around tight corners. You can choose to add the City Pack which comes with parking sensors to take the guesswork out of tricky spaces.
