The Ford Ka+ has the stylish good looks and performance to be recognised as a great city car. This is a supermini with lots of character and abilities.
The Ford Ka+ has just one engine, a 1.2 litre petrol unit producing either 69 bhp or 84 bhp with both having a reasonable economy of 56 mpg. While both are good for everyday use, the 84 bhp engine is probably the choice for those who need to travel on motorways regularly. The engine is not going to deliver the fastest of experiences but there is enough torque in the mid-rev range to make it an appealing and enjoyable car to drive round town.
The big difference between the Ford Ka+ and the Ka is that this model is slightly longer, hence the +, so there's more space for occupants particularly for rear legroom. The boot is also slightly larger at 270 litres and the interior has more than 20 cubbyholes as well.
Indeed, the Ford Ka+ offers more practicality that its sibling and with five doors it is a good choice for families. It's a nice car to drive around town where the suspension deals nicely with the roads and it's also a nice car for long journeys as well. Indeed, the influence of the previous Ford Fiesta – a great handling car itself – is evident in the Ka+.
One of the big selling points for the Ford Ka+ is the fact there's lots of equipment on-board and even the basic model has remote central locking, Bluetooth connectivity, electric mirrors and windows as well as six airbags.
Essentially, the Ford Ka+ is an impressive offering in a competitive segment and while it may not have the bright colours of its rivals, this is a car that delivers ability over design in the supermini class.
