Ford KA+ Overview
Drive with added pleasure
Light and nimble. Responsive and assured. The KA+ reacts brilliantly to all driving conditions.
KA+ comes with many clever technologies that make every drive easy and fun, and which help look after you and your passengers.
From city runarounds to further afield, KA+ adds pleasure to every trip.
The new Ford KA+ has an athletic appearance, with a low stance, creating an assertive road presence. The headlights make the front end look mature and the new model will also feature the distinctive Ford trapezoidal front grille. Most importantly, the KA+ offers more for less with 5 doors and space for 5 adults.
Ford has focused on maximising the useful interior space in the Ford KA+ with a new intelligent cockpit design. The model will feature premium materials and a streamlined layout to give the cabin an upmarket feel. It will be easy to stay in touch with the outside world, with the advanced Ford SYNC infotainment system and a smartphone dock integrated into the dashboard.
Plenty of space for everyone
KA+ is a surprisingly spacious compact car. The rear seats can easily accommodate three passengers thanks to a generous shoulder width. There’s good news for tall people, too: they won’t feel cramped thanks to ample legroom.
Make full use of each drop of fuel
KA+ features a spirited and responsive 1.2 litre Ti-VCT petrol engine available in power outputs of 70PS and 85PS. Whichever you choose you’ll enjoy low running costs thanks to superb fuel economy - up to 56.5mpg (combined)*
* The declared fuel consumptions and CO2 emissions are measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of European Directive 80/1268/EEC and the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 as amended by (EC) 692/2008. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are specified for a vehicle type and not for a single car. The applied standard test procedure enables comparisons between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. In additional to the fuel efficiency of a car, driving behaviour as well as other non-technical factors are very important in determining a car’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.
Easy parking in tight spaces
KA+ is compact and agile enough to fit into tight city parking spots. And with the rear parking sensors, you can park with confidence. They detect when you’re too close to an object and show a visual alert on the centre console along with an audible warning. Hassle free, bump-free parking!
Make journeys more relaxing
The KA+ Zetec series features both cruise control and speed limiter. Use the steering wheel cruise controls to set a speed you’re comfortable with and the KA+ will maintain that speed without you having to keep your foot on the accelerator. If you need to go faster or slow down, then using the accelerator or brake as usual will override cruise control. The speed limiter is especially useful for driving in urban areas helping you to stay within the legal limit and is easy to adjust as the speed limit changes.
Hill starts made easy
Hill Start Assist uses the brake system to stop the KA+ from rolling back when you’re setting off on a hill. When active, the KA+ remains stationary for between 2-3 seconds after the brake is released. This gives you enough time to move your foot to the accelerator, helping to make it easier and safer to pull away on a tricky hill especially if there are vehicles parked behind you.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance*
In the event of an accident where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can place a call with the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system supplies vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
*Ford Emergency Assistance is an innovative SYNC feature that uses a Bluetooth® -paired and connected mobile phone to help vehicle occupants initiate a direct call to the local Communications Centre, following a vehicle crash event involving an airbag deployment or fuel pump shut off. The feature operates in more than 30 European countries and regions.
Smart storage for smartphones
MyFord Dock is a thoughtful piece of design that stores your smartphone, MP3 player or navigation device securely so you can see it clearly without losing sight of the road. The docking station sits on top of the centre console and features a hinged lid that locks your device in position.
Your on-the-go soundtrack
KA+ Studio comes with an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, MyFord Dock, and a USB connector so you can play music from your smartphone.
KA+ Zetec comes with a DAB radio/CD player and Ford SYNC, which gives you the ability to control your music using your voice, or a remote control on the steering wheel. And with Applink, you can control popular Android and iOS Apps with your voice: Listen to audiobooks, get the latest football scores from goals.com, find nearby events and hear your Spotify favourites.
The compact exterior of the KA+ expresses its own personality by combining the practicality of five doors with design cues such as the distinctive Ford grille and expressive headlamps.
