Streetka 1.6 Luxury Review with images

AdvantagesLooks - Comfort - Gear change

DisadvantagesFuel consumption - Road Tax

"...usual 'Rust-around-the-filler-cap-syndrome' that affects all Ford built Ka's. Admittedly they are not without their faults, but name a car that is? Things to look out for are front suspension (check for uneven tyre wear), heating and ventilation (check heaters operate both hot and cold) Air conditioning (that the system blows icy cold), Worn steering wheels (the coating cracks and peels) and ideally, view the car when the engine is cold ( the auxiliary ..."

I miss you my Streetka! (Or do I?)

Advantageslooks good, fast, different, convertible

Disadvantagesinterior, in practical

"Yes I had the Ford Streetka. When I was younger I always wanted a Ford Ka. Then when I started driving I realised how rubbish they are and went off the idea. Then I bought a Mazda MX5, nice little sporty convertible car. I got bored of this in 3 months. The Ford Streetka had just come out and I HAD to have one! I went to Birchwood Ford (really, dont even bother) and ordered a brand new Ford Streetka. I wanted it in grey with an MP3 player, which ..." Read review

Ford StreetKa stands out from the crowd

Advantagesfun, trendy, noticeable, stands out from the crowd, excellent big boot for small car

Disadvantagesgirly car, lack of storage space inside car, dont know how to pronounce 'Ka'

"...for something more modern the Ford StreetKa suddenly became more noticeable. What can I say, its fun, it's fast, it's economical, it's everything you could possibly want from a car with two seats. The hood is very easy to operate by one person and can be put up or down in twenty seconds flat (which fits perfectly with the british weather!) I could probably put it up or down in about 15 seconds now that I am more used to it. The hood folds down into ..." Read review

Ford crumbles under pressure!

Advantagesstylish/compact/

DisadvantagesNot Safe!

"...I spotted one on the Ford forecourt and immediately fell in love with it. I decided to but a new one and wait a couple of weeks until march for the new 05 number plate. When it arrived I was over the moon.....Everything about the Streetka I loved, it was smart, stylish, compact (I'm only little!) and very smooth and easy going to drive. Everything was great other than the amount of petrol it seemed to drink! until one day i had an accident. I ..." Read review

Ford Street KA

AdvantagesEconomical, nice Drive, Looks cool. Nice and girly

DisadvantagesRoad Tax is expensive. Got the occasional Leak in the Poor Weather.

"I Currently have a street Ka have had it for 2 and a half years. Not had too many problems with it. Although i think i might be starting to get a few now!! I like the car because they are small, easy to drive, good on fuel. They are however very expensive on tax for what they are. At one point i was paying the same as a 5.5 ltr Merc!!! I have had to have 2 new door handles on it one on either side as they broke and the doors couldnt be opened ..." Read review

I Love the StreetKa!!!!

AdvantagesGreat looking little car - love it!!

DisadvantagesSpare tyre is not easy to release (although I never do this myself anyway haha!)

"Bought a StreetKa 15 months ago after wanting an upgrade from my Fiesta. Firstly, I love this car!! It looks fantastic (I have the dark metallic grey Luxury edition) - and for me to drives perfectly. I've driven (fairly) long distances in it, and it has dealt with this fine. The roof is very easy to use - although it may take a couple of tries to get used to it. The first thing I noticed when driving this after my Fiesta was the blind spots over ..." Read review

Ford Streetka - watch the petrol drain

AdvantagesSmall and compact and fun to drive

DisadvantagesFuel guzzler

"...looks just like a standard Ford Ka, with a bit of silver splashed around for addded colour. You get little in the way of extras although CD player comes as standard. It can fit into tight parking spaces and is ideal for those with shorter legs. My partner is 6ft tall and finds he cannot get the seat far enough back to be comfortable for driving, although he does manage occassionaly. The car is let down by the amount of fuel it guzzles! Be warned you ..." Read review

Ford StreetKA

AdvantagesNippy, stylish and cheap to insure

DisadvantagesSpace, quality of the interior

"...came straight for the standard Ford KA, which is a shame, as the exterior looks so promising. If you want a fun, stylish convertible that wont break the bank, and you can see past the interior flaws, this is the perfect car for you! (PS. The Winter Edition looks the best in bright red) ..."

Ford StreetKa, a Ka with a difference.

AdvantagesLooks fantastic, and inexpensive.

DisadvantagesThe interior is a little bit of a let down.

"This car is a beauty. What more can you ask for? It's a cheap, sport convertible, designed by Piniferini (who also design Ferrari's!) with a sporty engine... The StreetKA is a my kind of stylish car. The engine is good (around 100bhp) with plenty of torque (around 100lb/ft), so its quick enough to get you around with style and speed. I would personally say this car is aimed at more female than male. As with any convertible, space is a precious commodity, ..." Read review
