2019 Ford Ka+



 The smallest Ford sold in Europe (And other markets) is getting a few changes for the new year.
Mostly up front.
While I do like the new grille, it still is a sad looking little thing. Unworthy of the name "Ka".

The new Active version might be an easy way to cash in on the SUV craze. Why not. They've been doing it with the new Fiesta, which does look quite nice in its Active version.
 I can't see anything new inside, except a larger screen...

 Here is the current model. Which came out in 2014. Engineered in Brazil. It took Ford 2 years to decide to finally sell it in Europe in 2016.
And here is the real "Ka".
The original first generation that came out in 1996 (!) So modern looking it was produced until 2008.

It still looks like a concept car. And about 1000 times better and more modern than any current Ford design.

Clearly this Ka was designed by the same people who designed the Chinese market Ford Escort, and the new Chinese market Taurus.

The original Ka always looked like the prize from a box of cereal.

"It still looks like a concept car. And about 1000 times better and more modern than any current Ford design." You're joking, right? The original looks like something the 2000 Taurus pooped out.
