Thumbs down Kanary Ka



I think there has been some discusion about this car before, looks crap IMO. Wheels look far too small, anything less than 17s look tiny these days and why paint them black? Looks like a GTS-R Commodore after it was left out in the rain!

More details over at Drive.com.au

That car is pretty terrible, especially the back end.

if the back was changed slightly, it wouldn't be all that bad

In europe there are heaps of people that do up the Ka.. Just look on any ford euro fan site and you see them done up to the max.. mind you i really can't stand the look of them - i'd take a laser any day..

Ford press release regarding the Ka:

"Ford's popular small car with the style-conscious..."

Arrh the Ka..

Its a sad little car.. everyone is buying a barina.. And rightly so.

The Ka problems..
-No auto
-No perfermancce version
-Standard version engine is old and crappy
-Suffers the same styling flaws as the AUI, weird, crapy, doesn't flow on from any previous design
-Price is high for what your getting

yellow is not the colour. Can't we come up with something a bit more exciting. We are going into winter so we need some dark evil colours.

Look at who owns this sector, Mirage, barina, and maybe perhaps the Sirion.. The mirage looks dam sight better, handles quite well, ever popular for evo like rice mockups, japanese quality, nice price/features, auto and man. Barina offers electric steering, 4 wheel discs, okay engine and a sporty model and reasonable pricing.
