Ford StreetKa 2004 is not just an open version of the usual “Ka” hatchback. This is a separate model, which has its individual appearance and other technical stuffing.
In February 2000 Ford engeneers began to develop a prototype of StreetKa. In the same year the prototype was presented to the public at the Turin Motor Show. Enthusiastic feedback from the public and mass media made Ford think about the serial release of StreetKa. The famous Italian design studio “Pininfarina” took part in the development of the model. In the course of the work it was decided that for the new model most of the components will be unique. Only the platform and engine compartment left from Ka model. All the rest is original.
The first model ready for production was shown at Paris Motor Show in 2002. It is a surprisingly compact and elegant convertible, with a folding soft top. The mechanism of laying the top takes up little room. So this made it possible to keep a rather capacious (in relation to other similar cars) trunk with a volume of 0.214 m3.
This is a rather unusual, stylish and dynamic car. Inside, StreetKa is decorated brighter and more elegant than the usual Ka. It also looks more aggressive due to the installation of wider tires and increased wheel track. The suspension was revised and became stiffer. The steering with power-assisted steering became more “sharp”. It tooks only 2.6 turns of the steering wheel from the stop to the stop.
The car has a gasoline 8-valve engine in volume of 1,6 liters with capacity of 95 horsepowers. It goes with a five-step mechanical gear box. Acceleration to 100 km / hour takes 12.1 seconds. The fuel consumption is 7.9 liters per 100 km.
The Ford StreetKa 2004 Luxury package includes air conditioning, a sports steering wheel, radio, power steering, alloy wheels, soft folding roof, ABS, heated seats, driver and passenger airbags.
Serial production of the car began in 2003. Ford StreetKa 2004 has a great success. The target audience of this model is women.
We are really happy to present you Ford Streetka 2004.
