Ford Ka was introduced on September 11, 1996. It was introduced in the market as a small and low-budget car. This car was a feather in the nest of Ford as it has had record sales over the years because this car is so economical. The second generation of Ford's smallest car was released in 2009 with some extra features that were the need of the hour. The second generation was available in the market until 2016 when Ford introduced the third generation of Ford Ka.
Up to date, the third generation of Ford Ka is available in the market. The first and second-generation had three doors, but the latest model of Ford Ka has five doors. The first two generations of Ford Ka were sold as city cars, but from the third generation, it is being sold as a subcompact car.
Ford Ka has no LED lights but simple bulb lights. It has a roof spoiler as well. Tires have alloy rims that give extra grip. Ford Ka has some exquisite colors that are available. The body of the Ford Ka looks modern and catches the attention of the public.
The dashboard of this car is quite simple and easy to use. The flashes of color contrast on the dashboard help liven things up. The seats are a bit high that support catches a good view of the front and sides. Moreover, a high seat helps in easy access to controls. Two rear seats have the same door that is used to get in for the front seats.
Even though the Ford Ka is a small car but yet it has adequate boot capacity in it. The luggage can easily fit in the rear boot capacity of the car without any inconvenience.
Driving and Handling:
Ford Ka is available with two engines i.e., diesel and petrol. It doesn’t matter the type of engine being used; Ford Ka takes 12.8s to reach the speed of 60KMPH. The Torquay Diesel engine is more flexible, convenient, and relaxing, but the petrol engine is more fun to drive. Ford Ka has put some effort into Ka’s tweak that makes the car better to drive its nimble on corners and edges. Ford ka has extra stability mode in it, but this upgrade needs some extra money.
Both engines do very well, and their maintenance, servicing, and parts costs are low as well. The popular 1.2-liter petrol engine has the ability of 55mpg that is quite good for a small car. Meanwhile, a 1.2-liter diesel engine has a capability of 67mpg. This car is very eco-friendly over both of the engines and emits less than 120g/km of carbon-di-oxide.
Ford Grand C-Max Safety Features

Thoughts of GoodAutoDeals
Ford Ka is the best city car that is available in a short range. People who want modern rather than retro design should go for this car. The car works fine with a petrol engine, so no need to spend extra money on the upgrade of the diesel engine.
