Besides the styling, the Ka, like its sister cars Fiesta and Puma; was lauded in the motoring press for its handling.
Under Richard Parry-Jones' supervision, the suspension and steering settings allowed for hard cornering and high levels of grip, providing strong handling characteristics.
Unique to the UK was the Ford Ka Van variant, produced exclusively for BT Group and featuring a bespoke flat plywood floor with rubber over-mat and white ply covers instead of rear windows.
A "Ka Blue" special edition was also launched in the UK with dark blue bumpers and a silvery-blue dashboard insert, rather than the standard models' silver.
The Ka Sun Collection with a full-length fabric folding roof was also added to the range during the summer months.
It was initially only available in Brazil, later being introduced in: India, Mexico, South Africa (where it is marketed as the Ford Figo), Argentina and Europe.
The design borrowed a lot from Ghia's "Saetta" show car, a roadster designed by Filippo Sapino.
The Ka evolved from concept vehicles to production with minor changes.
