Popular Ford Ka wins award

The Ford Ka has been awarded 'Small Car of the Decade' by CAP

The Ford Ka has been awarded 'Small Car of the Decade' by CAP the UK's independent used car pricing experts. Mark Norman, chairman of the CAP judging panel, said 'although the awards concentrate on three year-old vehicles, it is testament to the build quality of Ford cars that well maintained examples from the late 90s still feel as if they have many years of motoring life left.'

The Ford Ka is a city car and Ford claim it is both cheap to run and kind to the environment. There are two economical low emission engines on offer and the most popular is the 1.2 litre 69PS Duratec petrol unit which has cut fuel consumption by 21 percent compared to the previous 1.3 litre Ford Ka. There is also no road tax to pay on the Ford Ka 1.2 model. At the heart of the Ford Ka 1.2 Studio is a tough bodyshell which has been developed to provide a strong, stable crash structure to protect passengers in case of an accident. The Ford Ka scored four stars for adult protection in Euro NCAP crash tests.

There are some fantastic savings at present offered on the popular Ford Ka. The Ford Ka 1.2 Studio is available with a massive saving of £1790 if financed with Ford credit. The Ford Ka 1.2 Studio was priced at £9785 but can be purchased for £7995 which works out at just £159 per month.
