Ford has revealed the all-new Ka+ small car which can now be ordered, priced from £8,995, with first deliveries later this year.

The five-door hatchback has space for five people. It is slightly shorter than the Fiesta, but 29mm taller, with class-leading front headroom and best-in-class rear legroom.

Its 270-litre boot is enlarged with 60/40 split-folding rear seats and there are 21 stowage locations in the cabin for small items.

A new 1.2-litre Duratec petrol engine, in 70PS and 85PS outputs and mated to a five-speed manual transmission, has been tuned for smooth, responsive performance with a broad spread of torque. Both achieve CO2 emissions of 114g/km and 56.5mpg combined.

To deliver the desired dynamic performance, a unique chassis specification has specially-developed features including the steering system, springs and dampers, front anti-roll bar, rear torsion beam axle and tyres, along with re-engineered front sub-frame and engine mounts.
