Readers of NoticiasAutomotivas have sent in images of the car being tested on two different occasions.

The site also speculates that the hatchback will get the EcoBoost 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine along with the 1.5-liter engines, setting the car's price between R$ 31,000 (Rs 8.1 Lakh) and R$ 40,000 (Rs 10.47 lakh) in Brazil.

The images clearly show that the Ka gets the Aston Martin grille, along with a rear roof spoiler. It doesn't seem to carry too many changes compared to the concept that was shown last November in Brazil, the taillight cluster remains true to the concept as well.

As for the alloys, both models spied carry different alloy wheels - one bearing resemblance to that on an EcoSport - and both of them are different from that used in the concept.

Notably, the hatchback is one of the several Ford products that will be launched in India within the next two years. However, the car has never been seen in India, either officially or testing, and Ford had showcased the Ka-based Figo Sedan Concept at the Auto Expo 2014. Hence we expect this to be launched before the hatchback, though a concurrent introduction can also be not ruled out.
