Inside, the Ka+ is not the usual explosion of colour or attractive forms that we’ve come to expect in the supermini class, but instead has a very serious, function-over-form design.
Put simply, everything is black, from the durable grained plastic on the instrument panel through the dark dashboard which is well-built, and onto the seats that Ford says are upholstered in Charcoal colour. To our eyes, they’re black too.
Considering the price, it's pretty decent
No amount of money you stick into Ford’s pockets will get you a sat-nav because there isn’t one available – as standard you get a simple stereo with a volume knob. Go for the more expensive Zetec model and you do get a 4.2-inch display in the middle of the dashboard but it’s small, difficult to read and hardly a match for the larger seven-inch touchscreen you can have in a Toyota Aygo.
Most modern cars have a 12-volt power socket and a place to store your smartphone while on the move. What Ford has done is put two on top of the dashboard in what they call MyFord Dock. What in reality is just a plastic phone mount is actually a great way of using your phone as sat-nav while it’s being charged.
