Will the new Ford KA come to India?

Posted on: Jan 21, 2011 - 10:33am IST

If the Figo has impressed you, here is some more good news: Ford is planning to debut their KA all across the globe in 2014. The added incentive is that Ford is also considering the production of the car in Brazil, India and China.

The new KA is based on the Start Concept that was displayed by the American carmaker at the 2010 Beijing Motor show. The concept car had a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine and was the first Ford concept in 3 years. The production KA may have a 1.4L mill mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The main question is will the KA be positioned above or under the Figo? Or would it replace the Figo considering the new KA will debut in 2014 and by that time the Figo would be not considerably old and outdated.

  1. […] Ka will sit on the B-Platform underpinning the Fiesta, B-Max and EcoSport. The new Ka is likely to be nominated as the successor to the Figo in India. In Europe it could be a three-door hatchback model similar […]

  2. Prady says:

    I think this sort of models like Ford KA or Fiat 500 are bought only by the people who want to be iconic or distiguished from the other people. They are head turners on the street, but will not cover the requirement of the common buyer who want more stuff for less money.

    1. @Prady – well, there could be a four door meant for India. The market is expanding and customers are looking for all sorts of vehicles. If the Ford Ka could be positioned above the Figo, it can sell. Who knows the state of the hatchback or compact car market in India in 2014 or 2015? It could open up and accept the Ka as well.

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
