This is the new Ford Ka concept, which previews a new global A-segment model developed in Brazil which unites previously separate model line-ups such as the Figo, the South American Ka and the European Ka.

The Ka targets emerging markets such as South America and India and who knows, if they’re serious about getting more volume in the ASEAN market they could introduce it here too, to fight against the likes of the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto.

We first saw spyshots of the Ford Ka on test in June. There was even a sedan body derivative published on other sites as well – we think that might be the production version of the Ford Escort concept shown in China.

Although this model has the concept suffix in its name, it looks pretty much production ready. Give it some toned down more production ready headlamps and it should be ready to go. Engine options will be small and fuel efficient – we could be looking at a 1.0 litre three-cylinder and the 1.5 litre that’s currently found in the Ford Fiesta facelift.
