Building on the success of the Ford KA, the new KA+ is a smart, practical city car that’s designed to bring a playful element to your daily drive. Available as an urban hatch as well as a crossover-inspired adventurer in the form of the KA+ Active, it’s endlessly appealing and great fun to drive.
For a small car, the Ford KA+ is big on personality. Its compact size means it can navigate city streets with ease, weaving in and out of traffic and slipping into the tightest of parking spots. With a contemporary design, meanwhile, it’s bound to attract attention: angled headlights and the trademark hexagonal grille leave you in no doubt that it’s a Ford, and crisp contours and a low stance give it plenty of attitude.
Hop in and you’ll discover a modern, comfortable interior with space to seat five. The KA+ Active in particular offers generous head and legroom thanks to its chunkier proportions, and both body styles ensure everyone aboard can relax in style. Maintain the perfect cabin temperature with optional Electronic Automatic Temperature Control, for example, or take the edge off chilly mornings with heated front seats.
With a thoughtfully placed dock for your devices too, you can navigate safely using your smartphone apps or stream music with ease.
Efficiency is key when you’re commuting, and the new KA+ helps you to maximise fuel economy in a variety of clever ways. There’s Auto Start-Stop, which cuts the engine while you’re waiting in traffic and restarts it when you depress the clutch or touch the accelerator. A shift indicator is also installed to advise you when to change gear for the most efficient drive. And, with an advanced 1.2-litre petrol engine or 1.5-litre diesel, you can enjoy more miles between stops at the pumps.
On the road, the KA+ and KA+ Active are responsive and swift, making city driving a breeze. When your travels take you further afield, you’ll find the model smooth and refined on the motorway, with features like cruise control ready to support you.
Safety and technology
Hill Start Assist, Electronic Stability Control, airbags – you name it, the Ford KA+ is equipped with it. A series of safety systems means you can take to the road with complete confidence, knowing that everyone aboard is fully protected.
Optional features include Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance – a function that ensures that, should an accident occur, the emergency services can reach you quickly. When an airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the KA+ can call 999 on your behalf via its Bluetooth connection.
