FORD Ka review

NGC verdict 06.02.2009

It has been a while since Ford Motor Company practiced a little bit of Latin in naming its models but, says Iain Robertson, a little bit of Ford is now deeply entrenched with Latin roots, as the all-new Ka hits the road in eco-style.

Of course, Ford, as befits a major player, has been in the vanguard of new model innovations for many years. Yet, the previous generation Ka demonstrated that, while the company could style a potential icon, it struggled with its mechanicals. Although I realise that this may read like heresy – after all, there are a great many first generation Ka buyers, for whom the model is their preferred mode of eco-transportation – the original Ka's engine was basically the same, pushrod-valve, three main-bearing crank unit that drove the notchback Anglia 105E to moderate sales successes in the early-1960s. Ford's 'innovation' drew a blank after the name and shape were devised.
