New Ford KA+ and New Ford KA+ Active
The KA+ might be compact, but there’s still space for five grown adults. And it’s available with an impressive range of smart technologies, all there to make life easier. Handy keyless entry is just one example. You’ll enjoy advanced SYNC 3, too, which helps you to stay connected by enabling you to control your phone and music with intuitive voice commands. The system also connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus, with Applink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.
Comfort and Convenience
Seamless technology you can control with your voice
Ford SYNC 3 is a state-of-the-art system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with intuitive voice commands, or a 6.5” touchscreen. It connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto too, and with Applink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.
Smart storage for smartphones
Device Dock is a thoughtful piece of design that stores your smartphone, MP3 player or navigation device securely so you can see it clearly without losing sight of the road. The docking station sits on top of the centre console and features a hinged lid that locks your device in position.
Worry-free car sharing with MyKey
MyKey lets you set the maximum speed limit, a seatbelt reminder and even the volume of the audio system. The technology is designed to give you peace of mind if you lend your vehicle to a friend or family member, because you can programme the restrictions you want to set for that key. You can keep the unrestricted ‘admin’ key yourself and even have more than one of both if you want.
Makes things easier all-round
With agile, fun-to-drive handling, you’ll always look forward to getting behind the wheel. Specially tuned Electric Power-Assisted Steering keeps the KA+ nimble and responsive, making parking simple, city traffic easy to navigate and motorway cruising a relaxing pleasure. A clever cruise control system with adjustable Speed Limiter is also designed to keep you within a speed you choose, minimising the risk of going faster than the local limit.
Sensors that take the stress out of parking
Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Stay in control whatever the conditions
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your car’s progress. It senses if an individual wheel loses grip and automatically applies a braking pulse, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
Extra control during hill starts
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Less tiring, more economical journeys
Cruise control with Adjustable Speed Limiter helps keep your vehicle within a pre-set speed limit of your choice. It can save you fuel, minimise the chance of you speeding and, like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your chosen speed whilst saving you from having to keep your foot on the accelerator pedal.
Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving maneuverability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering. Now with drift control, EPAS also takes into account crosswinds and other driving conditions, while active nibble control reduces any unwanted vibration in the steering wheel.
Headlights that turn on automatically when needed
Automatic headlights use a sensor that detects failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. This triggers the automatic headlights to turn themselves on, which can make driving easier.
Save on fuel, not on fun
The KA+ helps to keep your trips to the petrol station at a minimum. For a start, the new and nippy 1.2-litre petrol engine is built to improve efficiency, whilst also delivering rewarding performance of either 70 PS or 85 PS. And, new to KA+, Auto Start-Stop automatically switches off your engine when waiting in traffic or at a red light, seamlessly restarting when you’re ready to pull away. In fact, efficiency is built in: low rolling resistance tyres, aerodynamic design, low-friction engine oil… every little detail is designed to reduce fuel consumption.
The New KA+ looks after your fuel and your pocket
Powering the KA+ is an advanced new 1.2-litre petrol engine, with manual 5-speed transmission. Improved torque, even in a low rev band, delivers excellent performance and a better driving experience all round. The engine is designed for efficiency, so fuel consumption is excellent with low CO2 emissions of 114g/km. There is a diesel version available, with an impressive 1.5L engine.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
Essential journey information
An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you know you’ll be driving somewhere remote.
