If you need a city car to fit an active and chic urban lifestyle, look no further than the Ford Ka. The original Ka put Ford on the map, with bold “New Edge” styling and an eager driving experience. The new Ka improves on the old by utilizing a chassis co-developed with Fiat for their 500, meaning that driving dynamics are significantly improved. The 1.2-liter engine doesn’t have much weight to lug around, so performance is sprightly and engaging. Ford’s engineers have added suspension enhancements to allow the Ka to grip even better than its Italian sibling. The sheetmetal has also been improved, with a version of the attractive face and sculpted flanks that Ford puts on the new Focus, and the eye-popping color choices make a bold statement in the Ka’s preferred urban habitat. Ford’s city car is all grown-up, and lookin’ pretty good.
