It performs incredibly well as a city car: it’s zippy, responsive, and creates and all round enjoyable drive. It does best when making its way round winding urban streets, and its small size makes it easy to park in busy environments. The suspension is great too, making for a very comfortable ride. Although it struggles a little bit on longer journeys, the Ka is surprisingly refined at motorway speeds. The 1.2 litre petrol engine is a little bit noisy at higher speeds, and there’s some road surface and wind noise too, although not too much to be a problem. With the petrol engine you can also get 64.2mpg, which is quite reasonable. It has a top speed of 99mph and can reach 62mph in 13.1 seconds. Overall, it’s an economical and comfortable ride, and much more fun to drive than the Fiat 500.
