More Environmentally Conscious Ford KA Relaunched

Ford New Zealand Relaunch More Environmentally Conscious Ford KA

Ford New Zealand has launched a new more environmentally conscious model of the funky Ford KA. The new Ford KA runs on 91-octane petrol, which means less harmful emissions enter the environment, and also savings at the pump for motorists.

Body coloured bumpers and the inclusion of a single slot CD player add to the overall appeal of the vehicle. The stereo unit comes complete with a small removable front control panel, for added security and peace of mind.

“We were aware that our customers wanted a greener more economical option, with big car features such as a CD player and dual airbags,” said Ford KA Brand Manger, Barbara Paley.

A passenger side airbag is now standard as well as the driver side airbag, and front seatbelt grabbers and anti-submarine front seat cushions are designed to protect occupants in the event of a collision.

Security features are prominent. High security power door locks are standard on the KA, and it also boasts a Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) engine immobiliser.

The proven PATS immobiliser, which features on vehicles such as the Falcon and Transit, has an electronic chip in the ignition key which transmits a signal. This signal must be recognised by the engine management system before the engine will operate.

The Ford KA now has painted bumpers as standard, a feature that was only previously available as an after-market dealer option.

“This small change makes a marked difference to the aesthetic quality of the vehicle, and will ensure that the visually appealing and cutting edge nature of KA is maintained,” said Ms. Paley.

Established ‘favourite features’ of the original Ford KA, such as power assisted steering, power windows and air-conditioning - right down to the locking fuel cap – have been retained.

The new model Ford KA goes on sale in throughout Ford dealerships mid-April, and will retail for $18,995.
