Facelifted Ford Ka+ ushers in new Active soft roader
Ford has revealed its facelifted Ka+ range, which debuts a new Ka+ Active softroader version as well as the Sync 3 infotainment system and the model’s first diesel.
Unveiled nearly a year after Ford announced it was adding an Active model to its Fiesta line-up, the Ka+ Active takes the same formula of raised ride height, body cladding and interior changes and applies it to the Ka+ along with bespoke chassis tuning.
The full Ka line-up, which is priced from approximately €12,200 (converted figure), also introduces revised styling as well as technologies including Ford’s Sync 3 communications and entertainment system, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps. Two trim levels are on offer: Studio and Zetec.
Engine line-up across the range includes a new 1.2-litre Ti-VCT petrol engine with 70 or 85hp, which replaces the previous 1.2-litre Duratec unit, and the 95hp 1.5-litre TDCi seen in the Fiesta, which brings anticipated CO2 emissions from 99g/km.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
