The all new Ford KA+ compact car delivers outstanding interior space, excellent fuel efficiency, and fun-to-drive dynamics at an affordable price.

The five-door hatchback offers generous space for five people at an overall length of less than four metres
Joining Ford's small car lineup alongside the best-selling Fiesta, the KA+ provides an attractive new alternative for buyers who want a spacious, well-equipped, and high-quality small car.

The KA+ is a five-door hatchback based on Ford's global small car platform, and offers generous space for five people at an overall length of less than four metres.

It provides outstanding everyday practicality with 270 litres of luggage space - enough to accommodate two large suitcases - as well as 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and 21 stowage locations for small items throughout the cabin.

The all new KA+ features a simplified powertrain lineup based on an efficient new 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine. Available with a choice of 69bhp or 84bhp power outputs, the 1.2-litre engine is derived from the same family as the 1.25-litre engine in the Fiesta. It features twin-independent variable camshaft timing technology to enhance performance and fuel efficiency, and lower emissions.

Combined with a standard five-speed manual transmission, the 1.2-litre engine has been tuned to deliver smooth and responsive performance, with a broad spread of torque that makes the car easy and fun to drive in both city motoring and on longer journeys.

Fuel efficiency has been enhanced using optimised calibration, low-friction engine oil and regenerative charging, which saves fuel by maintaining efficient charge levels in the vehicle battery by capturing 'free' electrical energy when drivers coast or brake.

To deliver the desired dynamic performance, the KA+ features a unique chassis specification with specially developed features including springs and dampers, rear torsion beam axle, brake pads and tyres, and a re-engineered front sub-frame.
