New Ford Ka from Brazil excites India!

Snapshot: Ford teases next-generation Ka in Brazil, launch expected soon in the market

The next-generation Ford Ka (Figo in the Indian market) has been in discussions since a long time now. The model is due to make its debut in the Indian as well as Foreign markets for which automaker has not revealed its plan as of now, but recently Ford has updated the Ka on its Brazilian website, hinting at a May launch in Brazil.

The new-generation Ka boasts very aggressive styling as compared to its outgoing version with wide trapezoidal multi-slat grille, swept back head lamps, enlarged body proportions all of which are bathed in Ford's new kinetic design language.

The Ka was first launched in 1996 to capture good sales in the low-cost car market. Arguably, the model gained popularity in competitive markets like Brazil and in South Asia and after several versions, (known as StreetKa and SportsKa) the Ka entered in its second generation in year 2008. Interestingly, the Ka has retained the 2-door body style since its inception.

Ford's Ka concept sedan, which made its global debut in February in India is just a sedan version of the next-generation Ka, as seen in the case of Maruti Swift and Swift Dzire or Honda Brio and Honda Amaze. Moreover, the India-bound next-generation Figo hatchback will also be similarly designed as the 2014 Ka, and could be offered with new powertrain options of 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 1.5-litre TDCI diesel engines. However, it is uncertain that whether the new Figo will replace the current generation model or will it be positioned above to compete against the likes of Volkswagen Polo and Hyundai i20.
