PROS

Still looks good, cheap to run, nimble around town, fun to drive

CONS

Limited rear space, dated interior, lacks refinement, noisy on the motorway

Verdict

The Ford Ka may not be the newest small car on the market but it still has plenty to offer. Cheap to buy and run, it's once unusual styling has stood the test of time well and it's great fun to drive - especially the peppy SportKa version. It's fairly spacious too given it's small dimensions but the cabin is starting to look dated, especially with large amounts of exposed metal on show.

The 1.3-litre engine in the standard Ka is fine around town but noisy at higher speeds and the Ford lacks the refinement of newer small hatchbacks. Click through the sections above for the full Ford Ka review.
