Ford are bringing another Brazilian / Indian import this time its a replacement for the Ford Ka, which will now be called the Ka+.

More info here: http://www.everythingautos.co.uk/news/new-ford-ka/

Only one five-door hatchback bodystyle will be offered, in two trim levels, Style and Zetec.

There will be just one 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine, too, closely related to the 1.25-litre engine found in the Fiesta but cheaper to make.

It will come with a choice of two power outputs — 69bhp and 84bhp — although the lower-powered engine won’t be offered at launch.

Darren Palmer, Ford’s boss of B-car projects, believes the higher-output, £10,295 Zetec will be the most popular model but points out that even the entry-level car is well equipped.

Standard equipment includes six airbags, air conditioning, Ford’s Sync voice-activated phone and audio system, a smartphone docking station, a speed limiter and hill start assist.

Buyers who choose the 84bhp engine can get options including climate control, a leather-covered steering wheel with cruise control, alloy wheels, heated front seats, a DAB radio, rear parking sensors and heated/folding mirrors.

Honestly, can't see that selling that well.

It's a shame, the first generation Ka was so bold and different they really took the market by storm. This one looks just as dull as the current gen.
