For the first time, The new Ford KA+ has a new Active crossover version – delivering greater comfort and convenience, more driver assistance technologies than the current model, and enhanced interior and exterior styling. Offering generous space for five passengers and ample luggage, the new KA+ and KA+ Active are available with technologies including Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps.
The new KA+ and KA+ Active for the first time also deliver a choice of petrol and diesel powertrains, including Ford’s new refined and fuel-efficient 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Ti-VCT (Twin independent Variable Camshaft Timing) petrol engine offering 70 PS or 85 PS, and Ford’s 95 PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine designed to meet the needs of higher-mileage drivers.
The new KA+ Active further enhances the compact five-door model with rugged body-styling, raised ride-height and unique chassis tuning, unique front grille designs, exclusive interior finishes and a high-level standard equipment specification.
Raised ride height, roof rails, 15-inch alloy wheels in grey finish... New KA+ Active looks like it’s always ready for adventure.
With agile, fun-to-drive handling, you’ll always look forward to getting behind the wheel. Specially tuned Electric Power-Assisted Steering keeps the KA+ nimble and responsive, making parking simple, city traffic easy to navigate and motorway cruising a relaxing pleasure. A clever cruise control system with adjustable Speed Limiter is also designed to keep you within a speed you choose, minimising the risk of going faster than the local limit.
The KA+ helps to keep your trips to the petrol station at a minimum. For a start, the new and nippy 1.2-litre petrol engine is built to improve efficiency, whilst also delivering rewarding performance of either 70 PS or 85 PS. And, new to KA+, Auto Start-Stop automatically switches off your engine when waiting in traffic or at a red light, seamlessly restarting when you’re ready to pull away. In fact, efficiency is built in: low rolling resistance tyres, aerodynamic design, low-friction engine oil… every little detail is designed to reduce fuel consumption.
The KA+ might be compact, but there’s still space for five grown adults. And it’s available with an impressive range of smart technologies, all there to make life easier. Handy keyless entry is just one example. You’ll enjoy advanced SYNC 3, too, which helps you to stay connected by enabling you to control your phone and music with intuitive voice commands. The system also connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus, with Applink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.
The KA+ uses smart safety systems designed to protect you, your passengers and your vehicle. Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your progress and, when it senses a loss of traction, automatically applies the brakes and reduces torque to keep you on track. And because underinflated tyres reduce control and increase fuel consumption, the KA+ also features a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System to let you know when your tyres need inflating.
