Key Facts

The Ford Ka has been in production since 1996 for two good reasons: it has a smart exterior and will rarely hit your wallet hard when it comes to things like insurance and tax.

All versions of the Ka have three doors, but unless you’re ferrying extra passengers on a regular basis, you’ll enjoy the saving it provides on the total price more than the added, occasional convenience.

Why buy a Ford Ka?

For a fun and functional driving experience, a Ka is just the ticket. It’s simple and cheap to run, plus you get a lot of eye-pleasing aesthetics for your money. The price is right, as well; you can own one with lots of flash for less than £7,000.

Typically, most models in the Ka range produce around 69 bhp, achieving top speeds of close to 100 mph, so parents looking at this for a new driver need not worry less about the kind of mischief they can get up to.

Which Ford Ka is right for me?

Previous Range


An all-rounder: Ford Ka Zetec

An all-rounder: Ford Ka Zetec

Sitting in the middle of the Ford Ka range, the Zetec is among the more down-to-earth trims available. It doesn’t have the kind of loud looks more powerful runners often have, but you can find it with the heftier 73 bhp 1.3 TDCi engine that’s available to Ford Kas.

It does well at the pumps, too, where fuel economy between 50 and 70 mpg means fewer trips to the forecourts and more time on the road.

For the cool cats: Ford Ka Edge

A minimalist dashboard, sleek bodywork and it’s pretty economical on fuel as well – it hits around the 55–57 mpg mark and, like a few entries in the range, can also be found with start/stop technology, meaning you’ll burn less fuel sat around in traffic.

For the budget racer: Ford Ka Grand Prix

For the budget racer: Ford Ka Grand Prix

The main attraction here is the Grand Prix’s looks: extra body kit, alloy wheels and a strip stretching from the bonnet to the back really stands out. A little more expensive than the more sensible Zetec and Studio models, the Ka Grand Prix makes the most of its modest 69 bhp and 99 mph top speed.

For The Mod-Cons: Ford Ka Titanium

For The Mod-Cons: Ford Ka Titanium

As you would expect, the Ka Titanium is the highest spec model, with upgraded 16-inch alloys, climate control and Bluetooth connectivity. All this can be yours for less than £5,000 and still doesn’t break the bank when it comes to insurance, falling into the low group 3.

What are the Alternatives?

One of the cheaper small cars around, the i10 has become a leading contender through offering fantastic value for money, a wealth of kit on-board and its offbeat looks.

Reliability is a given with this particular model, owing to great build quality, superb fuel economy and a shedload of safety and security features including keyless entry and remote central locking. The i10 is easy to service too, should you need to.

Recently redesigned, a used Aygo won’t set you back a great deal; the cheapest used models are available for under £4,000. They may look a little basic on the outside, but the interior hints at a comfortable ride as you navigate cul-de-sacs, ring roads and terraces.

For a few thousand pounds more, expect to find Bluetooth technology and MP3 connectivity on-board to make those commutes to work a little more entertaining, while cruise control can make motorway driving a breeze.

Going strong since 2005, Citroen’s nippy rival to the Ka does what any new driver would ask for – be cheap to run and easy to look after. Although there’s not much power behind even the more recent models – the 2015 Airscape 1.2, for example, produces just 82 bhp – with prices starting at well under £5,000 when bought used, it certainly offers value for money.
