New Ford Ka Edge 1.2 Only £89 Per Month

Ford Ka Edge 1.2 Finance Offer

The Ford Ka Edge 1.2 is better value than a half price meal at a fancy restaurant. And - much like fine cuisine - this city car leaves a nice taste in the mouth. Why? Because it can be bought outright for only £9,725 or via a Personal Contract Plan with Ford Options. Terms for the latter include the £2,181.02 deposit which is followed by one payment of £99 (including the £10 Finance Facility Fee) and twenty-three instalments of £89. At the end of the term there are three options. One, pay the £4,962 Optional Final Payment to own the car outright. This totals £9,299.02 including £569.02 interest and the £10 Purchase Fee. Option two is to return it. There should be nothing else to pay assuming it is in fair condition and has not exceeded the 9,000 mile annual allowance. Excesses are charged at 7.2 pence per-mile. Option three is to purchase - as per option one - then part exchange via a further Personal Contract Plan. If the Ka Edge is worth more than its Final Payment - perhaps because it has low mileage or a boot full of restaurant food - the difference contributes towards the newer car's deposit. Just sign-up by March 31st , 2013.

New Ford Ka Edge 1.2 Review

The Ford Ka Edge 1.2 has fantastic handling that makes driving to the restaurant fun. As such it corners with confidence, has precise steering, smooth five-speed manual transmission, and a comfortable ride. It is easily one of the best in its class. It also has a 69PS petrol engine that propels fancy food lovers to 62mph in 13.4 seconds. Modest, but perfectly respectable for the price. Furthermore the 1.2-litre Ka Edge averages 57.7mpg, can be taxed for £30 per-year thanks to its low emissions, and sits in insurance group 3 of 50. Running costs are therefore lower than the morale of a chef who has all his food returned. The Ka Edge has a pleasing equipment specification too. Highlights include: air-conditioning, power mirrors, electric front windows, the CD player, and an engine immobiliser to keep it safe outside fancy restaurants. Not bad considering the Edge is only one step-up on the entry-level trim. And despite being a city car it seats four people in comfort and has a fairly spacious 224-litre boot. Throw-in good looks and a fashionable image and it becomes clear why the Ka is popular. See you at the restaurant?
