Next-gen Ford Ka leaked

Next-gen Ford Ka leaked

Pictures of the third-generation Ford Ka have leaked onto the internet ahead of its official reveal

These leaked pictures show the new Ford Ka concept, which is expected to be revealed later today.

Although details are scarce, it is understood that a new Ford Ka is destined for production within two years, and that this concept is designed to assure retailers that a new entry-level model is coming. The current generation Ford Ka has struggled to match the sales success of the previous generation car.

The current Ford Ka is co-developed with the Fiat 500, but the new Ford Ka is understood to be based on a heavily modified version of the last generation Ford Fiesta platform. The concept is a five-door, suggesting the production car will follow suit.

Ford’s fortunes have been compromised in recent years as premium manufacturers have pushed down, taking some of its market, and new budget brands have undercut it: the Ford Mondeo Vignale concept at this year’s Frankfurt motor show was regarded as Ford’s reaction to premium makers attacking its territory; this Ford Ka concept is viewed as its response to the likes of Dacia.
