The latest Ford KA+ model will try to be the most spacious KA model so far and will also make its best to deliver even better fuel efficiency rates all this topped with some sweet visuals. But let's start from the beginning, shall we?
Inspired by Ford's neat design solutions, the sweetheart is well-proportioned and showcases neat high-mounted trapezoidal grille, large headlamps, overall tight body shape and this agility and ride-ready stance. Also, especially for the European buyers, Ford team added a two-piece rear fascia with black components that further enhance the agile character of the vehicle.
Space. This is the keyword. Or, at least, Ford team wants it to be. The new KA+ offers generous space for five people and just enough luggage space. The vehicle is a bit shorter, combined to the predecessor model, but it compromises with 29mm additional height. Furthermore, many of the components in the cabin, seats, door panels and roof headliner in this number, have been optimized to deliver additional headroom and legroom. Sweet.
In terms of styling, the interior comes with sweet grained finish on the instrument panel and hard-wearing, modern-day trim materials and overall dark charcoal color theme. There are also some chrome components and accents that further contribute to this modern and sweet design.
The latest KA+ lineup is geared with agile, yet simple petrol engines. There are a total of two options: a 70hp (52kW) and 85hp (63kW) units, both sharing a 1.2-liter tank. They are based on the well-known 1.25-liter Fiesta system and offer twin-independent variable camshaft timing technology and also have some improved fuel efficiency capabilities.
Additional equipment and features
In order to deliver optimal pleasure of driving, Ford team has geared numerous technologies and components. For example, there are exclusively developed springs and dampers, rear torsion beam axle, brake pads and tires and redesigned front sub-frame.
In terms of safety, KA+ comes with six airbags, Electronic Stability Control with Hill Start Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and more.
Trim levels and upgrades
As we have already discussed, the KA+ comes in two variants: a 70hp and a 85hp one. The second one is called Zetec and offers some more goodies, compared to the stock model. These include exterior and interior improvements as special chrome front grille, front fog lamps, power front windows, electric door mirrors, perimeter alarm with remote central locking Speed Limited and Ford Easy Fuel system.
The advanced trim level also brings distinctive 15-inch alloys, manual air-conditioning system, Ford's SYNC voice-control communications and AppLink entertainment system, cruise control function, heated front seats, rear privacy glass and spare wheel kit. Sweet.
