Giving a hint of another small, fresh, economical car from Europe that almost certainly won't make it to the US is this news release about the new Ford Ka, which will take centre-stage at the 2008 Paris Motor Show in October.The new Ka brings new levels of style and enjoyment to affordable city cars.

Twelve years after the original Ka was launched to great acclaim, its successor captures the same youthful, cheeky spirit. The new model retains all of the qualities that made the Ka so popular - its compact size, great looks, lively dynamics and fun personality - but presents them in a fresh new package.

Ford designers have given the new Ka a fashionable, modern appearance based around the company's 'kinetic design' form language. A number of visual cues provide a connection to the original Ka, but with its distinctive face and chunky proportions the new model has its own unique character.The interior also has a stylish, dynamic design, combining bold contrasts and expressive colors to reflect the more adventurous tastes of the typical Ka buyer.

The new model is destined to continue the success of the original Ka, which is widely considered to be an automotive design icon. Launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1996, the Ka was immediately praised for its exciting "New Edge" styling and class-leading driving dynamics.

Throughout its 12-year life the Ka has remained popular among small-car buyers, inspiring fierce loyalty from its owners. In total, Ka production has exceeded 1.4 million vehicles.
