New Ford Ka concept surfaces
In its latest generation, the cute-looking three-door hatch from Ford grows two extra doors, and has India on its radar this time round
The Ford EcoSport might be keeping the American carmaker’s cash counters busy, but that doesn’t mean Ford is not planning further products for the near future. Today, a few pictures of Ford’s next-gen Ka concept, a car that, up until now, has been a mainland Europe model only, surfaced on the interweb.
Though details are scarce, we can assure you that the new model will come to India by late next year. What makes the Ka special is the B562 platform underpinning it. This heavily-modified Fiesta platform will also spawn a bunch of new models that will replace the ageing Fords (Fiesta Classic, Figo) in India, and other developing markets.
The new Ka’s design is inspired by Ford’s latest Kinetic 2.0 design theme. Though Ford is calling it a concept, except for the flashy headlights, the model looks production-ready. The design language has been toned down to keep Asian tastes and preferences in mind, though.
With this platform, Ford will also be launching a new line of engines. These will not be a part of the EcoBoost engine family, but an all-new engine family to keep up with tightening emission norms.
So, the new Ka – hot or not?
