I passed my test in June 2011, Needed a well built, reliable, cheap to own/run but nice quirky car. After looking at several options from Vauxhall, Renault and Fiat, I decided that the KA offered the best all round driving experience. Although the Blush paint was on the pricey, side I feel it adds character to the car. They are fairly exclusive, especially in the higher spec and pearlescent paint colours. The car is easy to drive, the clutch is light,the steering is direct, however the engine needs to be worked when accelerating, but the car is comfortable at any legal speed. There is minimal wind noise, and the supplied Michelin tyres are fantastic. I think the car is very girly, and suits a vibrant, outgoing, and unique personality. This is a massive step forward for Ford, who with the previous KA brought back the super-mini, but with the 2nd iteration have redefined the standard. In my experience, I have not seen or driven anything close to this. The cabin is well laid out, everything is where you'd expect it to be and the alloy wheels, that come with the Zetec trim, add that bit of extra flair that really finishes the car off well. The Blush metallic paint job is also very feminine, and really makes a statement. People often comment on how nice the car looks, and are very complimentary. Everyone who has been inside the car has said how spacious it is (for a small car) and how adequate the boot is. Overall, I feel the car is economical, practical and well made.
