Ford unveils new Ka


Ford of Europe has released photos of its redesigned entry-level Ka model, developed and built with Fiat, and set for unveiling at the Paris motor show in October.

Ford has not released mechanical details but the new Ka shares its platform and mechanicals with Fiat's new 500 and is built in a joint venture plant in Poland (120,000 a year) so will have a choice of small petrol and diesel engines and possibly a turbocharged twin-cylinder 900cc unit in some markets.

Some Fiat components are used in the interior and the dash-mounted gear lever is also a current feature of Fiat small cars.
