The new Ford
KA+ brings you more. Goodbye three doors, hello five – plus more space and
Ford has made the KA+ much bolder than its predecessor. With five doors, it’s larger and the bonnet has been lifted to make it more grown up. Slimmer headlights also give it a mature edge, and inside the interior design mirrors the Fiesta for more sophistication. Now with five seats and a 40:60 for the rear bench, there’s much more space to play around with. Still a fun city car at heart, you can choose some vivid hues like bright yellow, gold and a rich red.
As standard, it has a chrome grille, fog lights, running lights and Ford EasyFuel which prevents you putting in the wrong fuel. Inside, there’s a dock that will hold a smartphone securely in place so you can follow the navigation.
Studio or Zetec
Decisions are simply with the KA+ as there are just two trim levels. It’s effortlessly stylish with body-coloured bumpers, handles and electrically-operated wing mirrors as standard. The interior is where the superior Zetec makes driving feel different. It has a 4.2-inch TFT screen that hosts the entertainment, remote control audio controls and cruise control.
Putting the fun into city driving
With your eyes on the road, you can enjoy heaps of comfort, entertainment and convenience tools. Bluetooth and AUX/USB ports come as standard so you can make calls hands-free while driving, and a radio means you’ll always have music to accompany your journey. The Zetec goes a few steps further with air conditioning, SYNC which will read out text messages and a DAB digital radio plus a CD player bringing you all the tunes you could want. Thanks to Applink, you can also listen to audiobooks, podcasts and playlists through the apps on your smartphone.
The KA+ now features a 1.2-litre petrol engine with a choice of 69bhp or 83bhp. CO2 emissions are down to 114g/km and a gear shift indicator helps you to run the car as fuel efficiently as possible. The more powerful of the two engines can reach 0-60mph in less than 14 seconds which is impressive for a small city car.
Safety is key
Expect a steady drive thanks to the likes of ESP and hill start assist. It also has a speed limiter which helps you from accidently breaching the limit when relaxing on the motorway. The Zetec comes with MyKey which allows you to programme certain aspects such as music volume and speed limits so anyone who drives the car has to do so safely. You can choose to add a tyre pressure monitoring system which lets you know if you need to visit the air pump.
