The Car

21 Feb 2001

Cast iron motor dates from 1950s Anglia 105E Now equipped with fuel-injection, cleaned by a catalyst and stroked to 1.3-litres Interior storage is excellent with large door bins shaped to accept cans of drink, as well as a rotating cubby in place of a glovebox shaped to hold cassette tapes (in a car with a CD player?) with a top-lidded cubby sized for a mobile phone A hidden cubby in the right rear trim panel is large enough for a first-aid kit Sculpted dash has radio with single slot CD player as standard. Driver views two white-faced dials and several warning lights, but no temperature gauge Electric sunroof is standard as is power steering, air-conditioning and dual front airbags The iron engine produces 43kW at 5000rpm and 100Nm of torque at 2500rpm The rear seat splits 50/50 and folds forward to enhance the meagre boot Ka has distinctive styling all over, a disciple of the New Edge design The rear side windows pivot open to enhance the breeze-thru effect of the open sunroof Georg Jensen-style analogue clock is one of interior's highlights Door trim is limited with plenty of bare metal on show Ka misses out on automatic transmission and a five-door model More than 600,000 Kas had been sold in 30 countries before its launch in Australia
