I really liked the Ka, I’d forgotten what fun they are. They look quirky (remember Ford’s New Edge styling?), the 1.3-litre engine is peppy and they’re fun to drive. This one had been loved by an older couple. It had 64,000 miles on the clock and was selling for £995. If it had had air-con, I’d have bought it.
The Fiesta is meh. It does the job, but it looks boring and the controls are all so light, it like stirring porridge. I’m not keen on the looks of the new Ka either.
I wonder if I could find a Streetka? 1.6, leather seats, open top, lovely.
