Ford Ka+ Active (2018–2020)
Ford launches Ka+ Active
The Ka+ Active gets rugged bodystyling, a raised ride-height and unique chassis tuning, unique front grille designs, exclusive interior finishes and a high-level standard equipment specification.
The Ka+ Active gets a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Ti-VCT (Twin independent Variable Camshaft Timing) petrol engine offering 70PS or 85PS, and Ford’s 95PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine designed to meet the needs of higher-mileage drivers.
The new Ka+ features a high-mounted trapezoidal grille and large, swept-back headlamps, in keeping with Ford’s latest design language.
A new mesh grille features a chrome surround and standard foglamps and daylight running lamps are highlighted with a distinctive C-shaped chrome detail, echoed by a C-shaped moulding at each corner of the rear bumper. Restyled front and rear bumpers contribute to the assertive new look.
The Ka+ Active features ride height raised by 23mm and exterior styling enhanced with additional rocker and wheel-arch mouldings, a unique black finish for the upper and lower front grilles, and roof rails for carrying bikes and sports equipment – to support active lifestyles.
Further exclusive specification for the Ka+ Active includes unique 15-inch alloy wheels and Canyon Ridge bronze metallic exterior paint colour.
The Ka+ interior features a grained finish on the instrument panel and durable trim materials in a stylish dark charcoal colour scheme. Distinctive chrome accents are applied in areas regularly touched by customers and highly visible areas such as the door release handles, centre console controls and air vents.
The Ka+ Active cabin is enhanced with Active-embossed scuff plates and a unique to Active leather steering wheel design incorporating cruise control switches and featuring Sienna Hazel stitching. Front and rear seats feature special fabric designs with Sienna Hazel stripes and matching stitching, and all-weather mats for both the cabin and cargo area will protect the interior from muddy shoes and boots.
All Ford Ka+ Active models come with Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system enables drivers to control audio and connected smartphones using voice commands, or via the tablet-inspired 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Further technologies available to make driving easier include rain-sensitive wipers, headlamps that turn on automatically as daylight fades, and Ford’s Quickclear heated windscreen for faster getaways on frosty mornings. Heated front seats, Electronic Automatic Temperature Control and rear parking sensors are also offered.
All Ka+ Active models offer a comprehensive standard specification including power front windows and door mirrors, remote central locking, Hill Start Assist, Speed Limiter, and Ford Easy Fuel. The engine now starts with the push of a button, and in response to customer feedback, the bootspace is easier to access with a tailgate-mounted switch for easy opening, in addition to the convenient interior release accessible from the driver’s seat.
