Which used Ford Ka hatchback should I buy?
Basic Studio version Ford Kas don’t come with electric windows, remote central locking or air-con. That last one isn’t uncommon for a small car of its generation, but the other omissions are. The Edge version was introduced after the January 2010 model revision, and gives you these missing items as standard. It is the model we would recommend as it provides all the equipment you really need.
Zetec gives you a heated front windscreen, 16” alloy wheels and front fog lights, and Titanium adds climate control and rear parking sensors.
The best engine to go for is the 1.2-litre petrol as it is economical enough to negate the need for the diesel version, and with the diesel's potential reliability problems, the petrol version is the one to go for.
