We can say that Ka is a car for almost every budget. For three generations in Brazil, it is possible to get units under $10k and even cost models around BRL 70 thousand in the used and semi-new market. In that regard, let us consider the third generationproduced between 2014 and 2021 in Camaçari (BA).
If the goal is to use as little as possible, you can find 2016 units that cost around R$ 38 thousand. In this case, we are talking about the SE 1.0 version, which has basic equipment, manual transmission and wheels with hubcaps.
Who has more money to spend? you can choose a version 2021 free style, which costs BRL 70,000 in the used car market and offers a more generous equipment package. We can list things like automatic transmission, multifunction steering wheel, multimedia center with Android Auto and Apple CarPlayramp start assistant and parking sensors.
Which version should I choose?

This always depends on the profile of the customer. If you are looking for one driving car in carpool programsthe best is to buy manual version. In addition to fuel economy, the mechanics will deal with a less complicated box. Therefore, the chances of the car being stopped for a long time in the workshop are small.
For software drivers, we recommend the SE 1.0 version of the guide 2019. It can be obtained by values between BRL 49 thousand and BRL 53 thousanddepending on the region, condition and mileage of the vehicle.
Its 1.0 engine is growing hp85 of strength and 10.7 kgfm of torque. Fuel consumption is one of its strong points, as we will show later.

For the average driver who will use the car for daily activities, the the direct version of Freestyle can be obtained from 63 thousand BRL. In addition to the good equipment that we talked about in the previous topics, this model has a very powerful 1.5 engine. The unit is in progress 136 hp of strength and 16.1 kgfm of torque with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy is one of the criteria that has a great weight in favor of Ka. Its version 1.0 may indicate 9.3 km/l in the city and 10.8 km/l on the road with ethanol, and 13.3 km/l in the city and 15.6 km/l on the road with gasoline, according to Inmetro.
The 1.5 model with automatic transmission is also not bad: 7.5 km/l in the city and 9.4 km/l on the road with ethanol, and 10.7 km/l in the city and 13.5 km/l on the road with gasoline.
Another advantage of Ka is its a lot of potential. the hatch is easy to drive and fits in any parking space, proving to be an excellent choice for inexperienced drivers (even more so with parking sensors).

Ford Ka it is a strong caronly 3.95 m long, 1.69 m wide, 1.56 m long and 2.49 m wheel. Knee space for rear seat occupants is very narrow. Also, carrying three people in the back, the shoulders will be in contact all the time.
The stem has 257 liters of capacity and owes a lot to the Renault Sandero, which offers 320 liters. If you have youngsters or like to travel, Ford hatch is not the best choice.
