Cant stand the Ka in any form, the new Ka looks like nervous badger from the back. This is only my opinion...... which could be due to an irrational hatred of Ford and its products.

Seriously uncool. Horrible, although I do at least admire Ford for trying to be a bit different for a change.

If it was cool there'd be hundreds of them around here in summer.

There isn't. And never was.

So totally uncool.

Like the Peugeot CCs and other similar cars, it's cool if you're a girl and under 25. If you're not you'll just look stupid.

It is too cutesy, girly to be cool.

Not so awful if you're a young and attractive lady but there are so many better options out there it still isn't terribly cool.

That said, a nice female in my "team" (sorry) has one and she loves it. I found it hard to believe she bought this after knowing her for 15 years and she's had a succession of three dark green LR Defenders in that time! I thought they were quite cool for a not-bad looking woman to be driving around in. Very uncomfortable though when she gave me a lift a couple of times. I was going to say "she gave me a ride in it" then I realised how that sounded with Al and Wayne potentially within earshot.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Did you wear a paper bag over your head when you went along for the ride??

I meant the Defender was uncomfortabel Ant. I've never been in her StreetKa.

If I was stuck, in the middle of nowhere, with no car, no money and no way, other than walking, of making the 200 mile journey home, and someone kindly offered me their StreetKa, for free....

I would really have to think about it!

Ah! It struck me as very weird the cool and calm way you mentioned the lift in the car, now I understand why!

I'm betting you wouldn't get on the Streetka even if your life depended on it.

"But your appendix is going to blow! I'll take you to the hospital in my car!"

"No way!! I'd rather die a painful death than ride in that Streetka abomination!"

I would drive one of these as a joke. But not in any other situation. If you are going to buy any ford make it a focus, at least they are so common you fade into the background of other focus's.
