The first generation Ford Ka was based on the Mark IV Fiesta, but had unique New Edge styling, plastic wheel arches and the old Kent based Endura-E engine.
The Ford Ka+ was only introduced to Europe in 2016, but the car’s sharp pricing has failed to make it popular or profitable enough.
The 2018 Ford Ka+ Active is a hatch with offroader styling, raised suspension, fender protectors, a 1.2L I3 gas engine or 1.5L turbo-diesel.
The 2014 Ford Figo Concept previewed a new city sedan for emerging markets, which would later go on sale as the Ka+ in Brazil, and Aspire in India.
The 2013 Ford Ka Concept unveiled at the Sao Paolo Motor Show previews a new Brazil developed 5-door entry level hatch to be sold around the world.
The new European Ford Ka+ is a different beast to the two generations before it. Namely it has 5-doors and is built in India.
The second generation Ford Ka shares its platform with the Fiat 500/Lancia Ypsilon, is built in Poland by Fiat, and powered by Fiat gas and diesel engines.
Europe’s new third-gen 5-door Ford Ka+ hatchback is built in India (where it’s known as the Figo), and replaces the Fiat 500-based second-gen Ka 3-door.
