Ford has released first details of its new littlest car, the Ka, after a single image was leaked onto the internet earlier this week. The newcomer incorporates several new Ford design elements - seen most clearly on new Fiesta - while maintaining its chunky proportions and funky character. It is destined to continue the success of the original Ka launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1996. The current model remains a feasible option for small car buyers and 1.4 million units have found homes in its 12 years of production. Further information on the new Ford Ka range will be released in time for the Paris Motor Show in early October 2008.However, Ford SA has confirmed that the new car will not be offered in South Africa.
