The Ka first made its debut in 1996 under Ford. The first generation, which ended its reign in 2008, was widely praised during its time and became an iconic Ford model.

The third and final generation of the Ka came about in 2014. However, an updated version called the Ford Ka+ was released for the European market in 2016.

Interestingly, it was also sold as the Ka+ in Brazil as a long-wheelbase variant.

The model typically featured a 3-door hatchback layout, but this was changed upon the release of the final version, which was a 5-door hatchback. It was also produced as a 4-door sedan for a time.

Competition has typically come from other small hatchbacks. The most notable of these include Fiat 500, Kia Picanto, Volkswagen Fox and Up!, and Renault Twingo.

Trim options consist of the base Studio, followed by Style, Grand Prix, Zetec, and Titanium. There were also special editions called the Zetec Black and Zetec White. A sport version was also released, appropriately named the SportKa.

Engine options are surprisingly sizable, given the very small nature of the car. Petrol engines ranged from a 998 cc inline-3 up to a 1.5 L inline-4. The final generation was only given a single diesel option, which was a turbocharged 1.5 L inline-4.

These were typically mated with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The subcompact remained on the market for three generations until its discontinuation in both 2020 and 2021. These were for the Brazilian and European markets respectively.

Its 23-year run came to an end as a result of declining sales and the increasing popularity of crossovers.
