Ford’s smallest hatchback gets a comprehensive makeover

The third-generation Ford Ka was unveiled in November 2013 in Brazil. It was launched about a year later in the same country in both hatchback and sedan body styles. Unlike its predecessor, which shared underpinnings with the Fiat 500, the third-gen Ka is based on Ford’s global B platform, also used by the Fiesta. Available in various markets in South America and Africa since 2015, the supermini is being sold in Europe as well starting 2016.

In case you’re wondering why it took so long for the small hatch to cross the pond, it’s because Ford had to create a version that complies with European safety standards. For instance, the original model developed in Brazil didn’t have standard airbags and lacked many of the features European drivers are accustomed to. Thus Ford created the Ka+, which was introduced in Latin America in late 2015 and it is now being offered in certain markets across the Old Continent. The Ka+ is in many aspects identical to the standard Ka. What makes it stand out are the added convenience features, the two front airbags, and a retuned chassis for European roads.

“Choosing a compact car should not mean having to compromise,” said Darren Palmer, small car vehicle line director at Ford of Europe. “Our all-new Ka+ lives up to the high standards set by our Ford Fiesta, B-MAX and EcoSport compact cars by delivering the style, space, advanced technology and refinement that customers want.”
