Posted on: Jun 22, 2013 - 4:31pm IST

The Ford Ka, a small three door hatchback sold in Europe and South America is certainly in need of a replacement.

Here is a speculative rendering, created by Auto Esporte, of the Ford Ka based sedan.

Launched in 2008, the car is witnessing sales falling from a cliff in Europe with a 20% drop last year. There is skepticism about the car’s future as its too small for the current European taste.

There is a high possibility of the Ka being replaced by the next gen Ford Figo which could be promoted to a global nameplate. Having said that, the Ka name could stay on in select markets.

Wouldn’t the tax benefits of a sub-4m car sweeten the deal?

Auto Esporte reports that while the Ka for the European markets is heading towards a dead-end, the model would get a new lease of life in Brazil. According to the report, the Ka will undergo a thorough overhaul and will also spawn a sedan variant. The underpinnings would be the global Fiesta platform.

The hatchback and sedan combo is a big trend in emerging markets like Brazil and India. The refurbished Ka will compete with the Chevrolet Onix and Hyundai HB20 while the sedan based on it would gun for the Chevrolet Prisma (Onix based sedan) and the Hyundai HB20S.

Auto Esporte also reports that these new cars will be made at Ford’s Brazilian plant in Camaçari which manufactures the EcoSport. Production is expected to start next year.

The new hatchback and sedan duo could very well be the next gen Figo and the replacement for the aging Ford Classic respectively.

    The rear of the sedan looks horrible and does not gel with the front. The Classic’s derriere is any day better

      That’s a rendering image by a Media Publication, not the actual Car.

      The rear doesn’t gel with the front at all! Reminds me of the old generation Suzuki Swift and Swift Dzire! Horrible!

    Ford doesnt even care for Indians, current fiesta classic is almost more than a decade old model which is currently in production ONLY in India and no where else. I donot understand why ford or chevvy or any manufacturer other than Hyundai doesnt even consider global products for India? ford ka is soon going to be dead in europe and other westren countries and ford still doesnt want to bring it here in India. Even suzuki brought swift to India almost 21 months after its global launch. Why Indians have to be deprived? no chevvy onix/ prisma and no ford ka ever for India. very sad but true. I just wish ford and chevy and any manufacturer who considers India as a third grade country should be cancelled license here to sell vehicles!
