The 2015 Ford Ka
Designed particularly for the urban regions, the Ford Ka first arrived in the market back in 1996. The year 2015 has seen a launch of yet another Ford Ka with some changes in the design and features. Although, the vehicle was designed in Brazil, the Ford has not confined it to the South American region only. Despite the fact that it was primarily designed for economies under development, it will also be available in Asian and European countries. The European version, however, is most likely to come out later this year.
Those who are concerned about the 2015 Ford Ka getting designed in Brazil should know that the company has been following a plan known as Ford One, so you can bet you will get whatever you are looking for, as it targets the entire globe instead of a certain region. At the front, the vehicle contains LED headlights and a trapezoidal grille, which most of the Ford lover may be familiar with. Although its dimensions may be smaller, the 2015 Ford Ka looks pretty similar to the latest Fiesta.
Going inside the cabin, the passengers get a lot of head and legroom. It can accommodate up to 4 adults easily. The material used in the interior is high-quality plastic, which looks pretty stylish and also creates a nice feel inside the cabin. The cabin is pretty simple to operate with almost all controls within easy reach of the driver. As far as the safety is concerned, the vehicle offers all the basic safety features including the Electronic Stability Program.
Heading over to the performance the 2015 Ford Ka contains a three-cylinder 1.0-L engine that can produce up to 80 horsepower. Although it’s a smaller vehicle with not so much power, the Ford Ka can surprise the drivers with its pleasant drive. The vehicle is pretty quick when it comes to acceleration and can hit the 60 mph mark from a standstill in just over 13 seconds. Maintenance, according to the company, is pretty low. The Ford claims that the vehicle does not require any maintenance for up to 15000 miles.
It won’t be wrong to say that the 2015 Ford Ka is a well-rounded vehicle, with lots to offers to the buyers. Yes, it may not be as powerful you might want it to be but it is certainly going to pleasant on the road. Also, it is important not to forget that it is one of the inexpensive vehicles produced by the company, so you can’t have the best of both worlds. The vehicle looks decent and pretty much all the basic safety features that a driver expects.
The vehicle is currently on sale in Brazil and a newer version is most likely to come out next month. The Ford Ka is all set to launch in South America and is expected to reach India and other parts of the world soon. We will have to wait and see the response it gets in these regions.
