Electric Power-Assisted Steering makes the KA+ enjoyable to drive, its agile handling allowing for easy navigation on long, open motorways and tight city streets. With smart technology like the Cruise Control system and adjustable Speed Limiter, driving is both easier and safer at the same time - reducing the risk of you accidentally going faster than the speed limit.
Less time spent at the petrol station means more time enjoying the roads in the KA+. There's a new 1.2-litre petrol engine with improved efficiency as well improved performance of either 70 PS or 85 PS.
A brand new feature is the Auto Start-Stop, which switches your engine off when you're waiting at a red light. The function then slips the engine back on when you're ready to accelerate again.
There are even more great built-in features designed to make the Ford KA+ the most efficient ever: aerodynamic design, low-friction engine oil and low-rolling resistance all combine to lower fuel consumption as much as possible.
The KA+ is deceptively big. Deft and compact, there's still plenty of space for five fully-grown adults in there. Its also fitted with loads of smart technologies designed to make driving - and life - easier.
There's keyless entry, for a start, as well as the advanced SYNC 3, which connects you to your phone and music using only your voice. That can also connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and you can access your apps via Applink.
Driving isn't fun if it's not safe. The KA+ is packed with smart safety systems designed to keep you, your passengers, and your car safe at all times.
There's Electronic Stability Control, for instance, which monitors your traction and applies the brakes if necessary to keep you on the straight-and-narrow. The KA+ also features Tyre Pressure Monitoring, alerting you when your tyres are in need of a pump-up - giving you more control and reducing fuel consumption.
Sometimes we forget that driving should be fun. The Ford KA+ is one of the most enjoyable drives we've seen for a long time down here at Ringways. Small and nimble but still packing plenty of punch, the KA+ has all the classic KA features with plenty of exciting new additions.
