For The Ford Ka is more fun to drive than the Fiat 500 it's based on and passably practical for a small car.

Against It's overpriced and under equipped, noisy and doesn't have enough safety kit.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Compared with the Fiat 500, with which the Ford Ka shares much, the baby Ford is sharper to drive, but not that well equipped.
