Ford has introduced the 'Metal' Ka at the Geneva motor show.

It replaces the Tatoo version of the Ford Ka and will sit alongside the Grand Prix and Digital models, which ‘add an extra layer of style and fun’ to the Ka, according to the firm.

Based on the Zetec model, features include chrome door and tailgate handles, chrome ‘Ka’ badging, silver 16-inch alloys – or black as an optional extra - and gloss grille surround.

On the inside, the Metal gets leather steering wheel with gloss black spoke shell, high gloss black and chrome gear shifter, chrome air vents and badging and silver stitched floor mats with Ka emblem. As with every Ka model, stop-start is fitted as standard and the Metal will be available with Ford’s 1.3-litre Duratorq TDCi and 1.2-litre Duratec engine.

According to Martin Smith, Ford of Europe’s executive design director: “With Metal Ka we're looking at fashion and also a little bit of luxury. You often see high gloss black in large and luxury segment cars but combined with the chrome this is something that is really fun.”
