New KA+ - big for a small price

The new Ford KA+ has been unveiled by the car manufacturer and it has already been described as delivering great interior space, superb fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive dynamics.

The Ford KA+ will be sold at Ford car dealers across Somerset and the rest of the UK and will join Ford’s small car line-up alongside the likes of the Fiesta.

The KA+ will be an attractive alternative compared to other small cars and being priced at £8,995 the new model is very affordable.

KA+ set to debut later this year

The first deliveries for the new KA+ will happen later this year and the five-door hatchback has already been praised for the generous space it offers for five people.

It is slightly shorter than the Ford Fiesta, but is 29mm taller and boasts class-leading front headroom and best-in-class legroom for rear passengers. It has also received praise for its every-day practicality with 270 litres of luggage space – enough to accommodate two large suitcases –and 21 stowage locations.

The all-new 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine KA+ is available with a choice of 70PS and 85PS power outputs. The vehicle also has twin-independent variable camshaft timing technology available to enhance performance and fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

The use of optimised calibration, low-friction engine oil and regenerative charging means that fuel efficiency in the car has been improved.

The new KA+ series has a Studio model, which comes with the 70PS engine, and the Zetec model, which is available with both 70PS and 85PS engines.

Both models have a range of great features such as AM/FM radio with Bluetooth connectivity, Speed Limiter, safety system with six airbags, remote central double locking with perimeter alarm, Electronic Stability Control with Hill Start Assist, Deflation Detection System and Ford Easy Fuel.
