Ka Technical Specification
A new engine to look after your fuel
Powering the KA+ is a responsive and economical four cylinder 1.2 litre Ti-VCT petrol engine. It’s available with two power outputs, 70PS or 85PS, and a five-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy is superb, with low CO2 emissions of 114g/km.
Save money when you change gear
The KA+ comes with a gear shift indicator on the instrument panel that tells you the best moment to change gear. This helps keep your revs lower, improving fuel efficiency and helping you go further for less cost.
Easy parking in tight spaces
KA+ is compact and agile enough to fit into tight city parking spots. And with the Rear Parking Sensors, you can park with confidence. They detect when you’re too close to an object and show a visual alert on the centre console along with an audible warning. Hassle free, bump-free parking!
Make journeys more relaxing
The KA+ Zetec series features both Cruise Control and Speed Limiter. Use the steering wheel Cruise Controls to set a speed you’re comfortable with and the KA+ will maintain that speed without you having to keep your foot on the accelerator.
Hill starts made easy
Hill Start Assist uses the brake system to stop the KA+ from rolling back when you’re setting off on a hill. When active, the KA+ remains stationary for between 2-3 seconds after the brake is released.
Keep control at all times
Traction control is especially effective when you need to accelerate from a stopped position, slow speed or when climbing up hill. It makes driving smoother, helping you stay in control of the KA+ on icy roads and during wet weather.
Make light work of manoeuvring
Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) adjusts automatically to provide easier, lighter steering when you’re parking, and firmer steering for more control when driving on motorways.
Greater visibility, day or night
Thanks to clever design, the KA+ becomes even more noticeable. The fog light housing also contains Daytime Running Lights helping you to stand out whether it’s day or night, foggy or clear.
In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, there are side airbags with thorax protection and curtain airbags with head protection.
Ka Key Features
As you’ll discover, KA+ isn’t just a good-looking vehicle. It’s clever and courteous, too.
Ford SYNC. Advanced hands-free technology.
Standard on KA+ Zetec, Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile with simple voice commands. It will read out texts for you, play songs from a USB stick and can stream music from a Bluetooth®*-compatible mobile phone.
Smart storage for smartphones
MyFord Dock is a thoughtful piece of design that stores your smartphone, MP3 player or navigation device securely so you can see it clearly without losing sight of the road.
Your on-the-go soundtrack
KA+ Studio comes with an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, MyFord Dock, and a USB connector so you can play music from your smartphone.
Extra comfort with heated seats
Whatever the conditions outside, you and your front passenger can feel warm and comfortable in the KA+. Optional heated front seats help make driving in the colder months much more pleasant.
Power folding mirrors
To avoid accidental damage, optional electric power-foldable mirrors automatically fold inwards when the car is locked (or when you use the mirror adjustment switch).
Temperature control that’s no sweat
With Electronic Automatic Temperature Control you set a comfortable temperature and then leave it to KA+ to maintain it. Not too cold. Not too hot. Just right, every time.
This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your car, because the wrong nozzle simply won’t fit. And as Ford EasyFuel is a capless system, you’ll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
Emergency Brake Warning Lights
If you need to perform emergency braking then the hazard warning lights will automatically switch on and the brake lights will flash.
Smart Security Systems
The KA+ comes with remote control door locks and a Thatcham-approved 3 star security system. This includes a perimeter alarm and a double deadlock system.
