Following the success of the KA, the Ford KA+ brings new levels of comfort and convenience to supermini motoring. It may have the same compact size from the outside, but the cabin offers improved space for all and the latest array of Ford’s technological features. The range also introduces the new KA+ Active, which takes the practicality of a city runner and clads it in SUV styling for a contemporary, energetic look.
The KA+ retains the unique and trendy styling of its predecessor, being all sculpted curves and fluid lines. It’s aligned to the brand’s latest design language, featuring shaped headlamps and a hexagonal grille with horizontal bars. The KA+ Active takes things up a notch with a higher roofline and standard roof bars for added headroom and practicality.
Joining the familiar 1.5-litre diesel engine is a new 1.2-litre petrol unit that’s designed to make driving around town exciting. It’s peppy and flexible, keeping pace with the traffic easily, while a combined figure of 56.5mpg ensures your trips are more efficient than ever. Those doing more mileage will prefer the diesel, which is smooth and refined on the motorway and offers excellent economy.
The KA+ and KA+ Active are equipped with a range of driver assistance features such as cruise control and a speed limiter to make every journey a breeze. Add the City Pack option for rear parking sensors to make those delicate manoeuvres easier.
Advanced technology isn’t reserved for outside the cabin though. Keeping connected is simpler than ever thanks to Bluetooth functionality, while the MyFord Dock holds your sat-nav, smartphone or MP3 player steady as you drive. The KA+ Zetec edition and KA+ Active come with the marque’s innovative SYNC 3 system, enabling you to control your music and information using your voice or via steering wheel mounted buttons.
Other options for your comfort include Electronic Automatic Temperature Control and heated front seats to take the edge off the winter chill.
