    My car

    I am on my 3rd Luxury Ka and have nothing but praise for it having driven the length and breadth of this country in it. The boot may be small but you can fold one or both of the rear seats down to expand the space. I have regularly driven with 3 passengers one being well over six foot tall and there were no complaints re leg room etc. My only gripe is going up steep hills when I have to change down to first gear. My next car will be this model which I expect to purchase in May next year.

    My car

    I got my Ka with 3 miles on the clock, on my 17th birthday. A year, and 12,997miles down the line, my Ka is still buzzing along! This thing hasn't missed a beat and I absolutely love it. It's so cheap to run (eg. even with fuel at 99p litre, I can still get 200+miles on £20).

    On B roads this thing is THE DON! Keep the engine in the torque band nicely and you will whistle along and see the the speedo over what you should be doing - ahem!

    This is made so, so, SO much fun also by the steering. Look just to the right of that drain, and you will hit that spot - everytime, with ease.

    I cannot recommed this car enough. Cheap insurance, zippy, and who says the car is small? I can fit my (ABSOLUTELY HUGE) downhill mountain bike in the back with just the front wheel off.

    Why go for a Saxo with offset pedals and woolly steering?

    SportKa here I come!

    My car

    I have been driving one of these beasts for over a month now as a courtesy car (Someone crashed into my beautiful Satria Neo :( ) and can I say what an awful little car it is. The one i've been driving is an 07 Ka Luxury... According to Ford anyway! The engine is sooo whirry and clicky, the gearbox is as flimsy as anything and rattles all over the place, the cheap imitation leather seats make me want to be sick with their cheap nasty quality, the power steering is atrocious...THE CAR JUST DOES NOT TURN and the 1.3 version i'm currently driving is a right petrol hungry little wretch. My driving instructors Ford Ka that I learnt in was was about 4 years old and a basic entry level one and even that was better than this so called Luxury version. HATE IT! HATE IT! HATE IT!

    My car

    I had the use of a Ka for 6 weeks while my car was in for repair after a road accident what can i say Unsuitable for a family full stop. I am only 5ft4 and found it very uncomfortable to drive i had to bend my left leg at an odd angle as not to rest it on the clutch pedal. Noisy i thought expensive on petrol compared to my MPV

    Great for parking hopeless for a grocery shop

    I would say aimed at the teen end of the market for girls not a boys car Even if i had no kids i would not considered this car its like a toy
