What's the used Ford Ka+ hatchback like?
Sadly, the Ford Ka+ is no more because people are drifting more towards small SUVs such as the Puma. However, used car buyers looking for an inexpensive and practical five-door town driver that's easy to park, while also being remarkably capable beyond city limits, should find plenty to like in the Ka+.
Engine choices are limited to just three options. Early cars come with a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with either 69bhp or 84bhp, while facelifted examples have a revised 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine (again in 69bhp or 84bhp forms) or a 94bhp 1.5-litre diesel. All versions of the Ka+ come with a five-speed gearbox
Inside, there’s plenty of space for a six-footer to sit behind a six-footer in front, and the boot’s a reasonable size for this class, with 60/40 folding rear seats as standard. All the controls are logically placed and easy to locate, and feel pleasant enough to use. However, some of the materials used are a little low-rent and there are plenty of hard, scratchy plastics on view.
