Conceived as a lifestyle-oriented small city car, the Ford KA was first introduced in 1996 as a two-door model based on the then current Ford Fiesta MK IV with a completely new design language called New Edge. The car proved to be a huge success and a bestseller in its class in the UK for years, mostly due to its charming and practical design, high quality and competitive price. 
When it was first introduced in 1974, the Volkswagen Golf instantly became an icon and a revolution in the expanding hatchback class. It wasn’t the first hatchback on the market, but it was the most practical, and its quality was astounding.
