Ford Ka driving report
Subscriptions & booklets

I something with a soul and ancient Egyptian mythology mumbled the press releases of the Ford Ka to explain the name. All nonsense, I think: Probably the little Ford was named after the snake from Rudyard Kipling's 'Jungle Book', the second a was left out to avoid license disputes.

The name of the snake would have suited him well, more goes into the interior than you would think from the outside, and we have known since the famous Internet spot that he eats cats. In addition, that should also be said here, the little Ford was not always free of a certain insidiousness: Defects in electrics, locks, engine management and catalytic converters are just as much a part of Ka folklore as the susceptibility to rust and notorious leaks at various interfaces between the environment and the interior /p>

Ford Ka with idiosyncratic design and crisp driving behavior

Why should you still consider a Ka when it has to be a motorized shopping cart? Well, it is a design milestone for Ford, defining the New Edge design from 1996 onwards, which with its corners and curves as well as the well-designed interiors is somehow noticeable in the brand DNA to this day Ford Ka is crisp on the road, turns spontaneously and seamlessly around the corner like an original mini and can be mercilessly beaten through curves.

This is how much the Ford Ka costs

has these talents the Ford Ka inherited from the Fiesta, from which the technology comes. Initially it was available with two engines, 50 and 60 hp, both with 1,300 cc. You can find motorized cars like this in second-hand exchanges on the Internet for less than twelve monthly tram tickets. Well then!

It starts at around 500 euros for a ready-to-drive Ford Ka with a few months of MOT, most of which is between 1,000 and 2,500 euros, the latter value being almost a desired price for the seller. For around 1,500 to 2,000 euros you can get well-maintained first-hand cars with less than 80,000 km on the clock. Thanks to the robust timing chain motor, it is an ideal city car or new driver's license car.
