The new Ford Ka will be priced from £7,995 when it goes on sale in the UK in January 2009, with a choice of 1.2-litre petrol or 1.3-litre diesel engine.

All-new Ka is available with 1.2 69PS petrol and 1.3 75PS diesel engines, sub-120g/km CO2 emissions and a host of big car features. There is a wide choice of specification and trim options, each with comprehensive and imaginative equipment levels.

The Studio model provides small-car buyers with an affordable and stylish package. Standard features include Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), height-adjustable steering wheel, ABS brakes, driver and passenger front airbags, headlamp courtesy delay system and body-coloured bumpers. Six speakers, CD radio with MP3 compatibility and AUX-in connector also come as standard on all models.

STYLE from £8,495
Style boosts Ka’s specification with powered and heated body-coloured door mirrors, electric front windows with driver-side one-touch up and down, body-coloured door handles, remote/central locking, driver seat height adjust and 50/50 rear split seat, rear headrests and driver seat memory function.

ZETEC from £9,495 (£10,195 for 1.3 TDCi)
Expected to be the most popular choice, Ka Zetec will account for more than 40 per cent of sales.

The optional 1.3 diesel engine offers lower CO2 emissions and even better economy.
