The first images with the Ford Ka concept have been published online, following the car's reveal in Brazil.
There were rumors about the Ka's demise but last month we saw some spy photos with a small Ford prototype and we assumed it was the Ka. It turns out we were right as the Blue Oval company won't kill the Ka after all since they just unveiled a near-production concept in Brazil which previews the next generation set to go on sale next year.
It looks exactly as you would expect, like a shrunken Fiesta with the now familiar Aston Martin-like front grille and other typical Ford cues. The car appears to be pretty much production-ready, except maybe for the headlights which resemble the ones seen on the Escort concept.
Full specifications were not released but Brazilian media is reporting the car will have a naturally-aspirated 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 80 HP (59 kW), along with a 1.5-liter rated at 111 HP (82 kW) when running on ethanol and 107 HP (79 kW) when using gasoline.
It is scheduled to go on sale at first in Brazil and after that in other emerging markets. Ford could decide to bring it to Europe as well.
