Compact, cost-effective and designed to embrace all that urban living throws its way, the Ford KA+ is the ideal companion for those who need a capable and practical runner with modest dimensions.
Sporting the marque’s family face, with its angled headlights and hexagonal grille, the KA+ is instantly recognisable as a Ford. It may be small, but it’s perfectly proportioned, with clean lines and flowing curves giving a mature, sophisticated feel to the bodywork.
A low stance creates a sense of poise, while the sculpted rear delivers not only ample boot space but a distinctive aesthetic too. Choose from a range of standout paint colours to finish the vehicle according to your tastes.
Despite its modest size the Ford KA+ uses its space wisely. There’s room for five adults to relax and enough boot space to accommodate your shopping or gym bag comfortably.
There’s plenty to keep every drive pleasant and convenient too. Selected models offer rain-sensing wipers, heated seats to take the edge of the winter chill, and the handy Device Dock, which enables you to fix your smartphone to the dash so that you can access music or navigation apps without taking your eyes off the road.
Technology and safety
Clever features are available in the Ford KA+ to keep your drive feeling effortless and relaxed. Cruise control with an Adjustable Speed Limiter enables you to pre-set a limit for your journeys to conserve fuel and ensure you don’t inadvertently exceed the limit, while parking sensors help guide you into those tight spots once you reach your destination.
As for safety, there’s plenty to keep you protected. Not only are stability control, traction control and airbags all standard, models with Ford SYNC benefit from the Emergency Assistance feature, which can contact the emergency services on your behalf in the event of an accident, helping them to get to you sooner.
Being designed for getting about town with ease, the Ford KA+ offers nippy, efficient engine choices that deliver impressive economy in urban environments yet provide a smooth, settled experience on the open road. A new 1.2-litre petrol option is available with a five-speed manual gearbox, which offers improved torque at low revs, alongside a 1.5-litre diesel that’s better suited to long distances.
The Auto Start-Stop function cuts emissions when you’re idling by switching off the engine until you’re ready to pull away again, and a Shift Indicator suggests when to change gear in order to maximise efficiency.
