2015 Ford KA Concept revealed in Europe
Last month we revealed the new Ford KA Concept after it debuted in Brazil, and now Ford has brought it to Europe to reveal where the KA is heading. At Ford’s Go Further event in Barcelona this week, Ford revealed the KA Concept as its vision of what the 2015 Ford KA will look like and offer.
Sadly, the KA seems to have lost its quirkiness and gone mainstream; it looks like another homogeneous Ford, just smaller.
Based on the current Fiesta’s platform, the 2015 KA will come with five-doors, an ‘upmarket’ look thanks to clean lines and Ford’s Aston Martin grill, and no doubt a range of 3-cylinder EcoBoost engines to make it frugal and nippy.
The new Ford KA will also come with some proper grown-up toys too, including MyFord Dock and FordSync and will no doubt be a better car than the current KA, which is really just a Fiat 500 without the charm.
But somewhere in the mix Ford seems to have lost any sense of fun with the new KA; it’s a car that looks just too generic to have real appeal. There seems no design USP.
Maybe the new Ford KA will get more interesting before it arrives in late 2015?
