The current, third-generation model was introduced recently. It was completely designed by Ford Brazil but it is not designed for South American market only. It is designed primarily for countries in development, but it will be also available in Europe, so it is legit to say that 2015 Ford Ka is offered or will be all over South America, Asia and Europe. European version is expected to come in the second half of 2015.
2015 Ford Ka redesign
Although this model is designed in Brazil, it is an integral part of the company’s new Ford One global strategy. The 2015 Ford Ka completely follows company’s new Kinetic design language. The front fascia features recognizable trapezoidal grille and narrow LED headlights. The overall look of the car is mostly related on new Fiesta. Although it has smaller dimensions, 2015 Ford Ka is based on the same platform. Wheel base is also same length, so there is enough leg and headroom for four adult passengers with average height. Interior of the car is characterized by very nice styling and also good-quality plastic materials. The control board is simple and very easy to use and it shows all necessary information. The 2015 Ka is also very well equipped with safety features so beside airbags, there is electronic brake distribution and even ESP.
2015 Ford Ka engine and performances
The 2015 Ford Ka is equipped with company’s new 1.0 liter three-cylinder engine, which has an output of around 80 horses. Despite small displacement and not much power, this car is very pleasant for driving. Acceleration is good and this small car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 14 seconds. The transmission is very good and it is worth to mention that fifth speed is very long so this car could be a nice cruiser on the highway too. Ford also promises extremely low maintenance costs. According to the company, 2015 Ka requires no maintenance for 240.000 kilometers.
