New Ford Ka Leaks Out

Having been on the market for 12 years, the Ford Ka is long overdue, fortunately it appears that wait is just about over as the first pictures have surfaced net-wide reveal the all new model.

We can certainly have high hoped for the model considering it shares its underpinnings with the ulta-successful Fiat 500 including its engine range. Petrol engines range from an entry level 69 bhp 1.2-litre along with a 100 bhp 1.4-litre, and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel option is available too. Word coming from the Ford Europe also states we can expect to see a ST version as well powered by the same 135bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine found in the Fiat 500 Abarth, although power is said to be slightly boosted up to 150 bhp for the Ford version.

Following its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September, we can expect to see a 2+2 convertible version further down the line and even a tax-busting hybrid version. Pricing should start at around £7500(€9500,€14775) raising to £12,000 (€1500,$23640) for the ST.

This is a pathetic style job, the original one is a classic design where all lines converge and is simple.How anyone can compare with the Corsa is beyond me,they are nothing alike.If its the roof and side window likeness take a look at the original Ka profile and then decide who copied who!Here's a pic.. http://www.ford.co.uk/ie/ka/ka_ext/ka_bodystyle/ka_body_pop1/popup/-/-/

well this is just dire man. to think Ford is stealing Vauxhall/Opel's design cues is pathetic. its a Corsa rip off. the original is n a different league. the Ka was a brand in itslf pretty muchand this is just the yawn inducing corporate look slapped on its face with an oversized bumper opening. sorry but is this a Mondeo, Focus or Fiesta we are looking at? answer: YES! will reserve final judgement till i see it in the flesh. as for Auto Express? its a good magazine thats a good read, but for factual information ( referring to the silly renderings) and sloppy journalism ("!") littered everywhere then its no rival to the other uk weekly magazine Autocar.

What do you get when a Corsa and the new Fiesta have sex? This... I mean the side/rear 3/4 is blatantly stolen from the Corsa. Oh, and I don't hear anyone knocking AutoExpress for this news.

yeah, the rear looks a bit wicked. I just hope it handles as good as the old model.

I'm sorry but could a car be more ugly from behind than the Ford Ka actually is? What an disillusion if you acknowledge that they did a great job on the front!
