Why drive a Ford Ka?

The Ford Ka was launched in 1996 as a low-cost option in the Ford range. The three-door hatchback proved popular from the start, offering great fuel economy, revered handling and Ford’s renowned reliability.

Compact and nifty, it’s perfect for a new driver or used as a city run-around. The range has evolved in recent years and the newer five-door Ka+ models are more spacious and include the Studio and Zetec.

What affects the cost of my Ford Ka insurance?

Insurers use a range of factors to determine the risk of you making an insurance claim. They include the following:

cake icon

Your age

Younger drivers typically find car insurance more expensive because insurers view them as more at risk of having an accident

location icon

Your location

Where you live can have a bearing on insurance costs. Some areas of the UK see higher rates of car theft or vandalism, which bump up premiums

briefcase icon

Your occupation

Some professions, such as travelling salespeople who spend more time on the road, are seen as more likely to have an accident

id icon

Your driving and claims history

If you’ve had driving convictions or made car insurance claims in the past, insurers take the view that you’re more likely to claim again

padlock icon

Storage and safety

If you can park your car in a garage, carport or driveway overnight rather than on the roadside, you should be able to benefit from lower premiums

How to cut the cost of Ford Ka car insurance

There are ways you can try to reduce the premiums you pay when insuring your Ford Ka. Here are a few ideas:

  • tick icon

    Avoid modifications

    By customising your car, you could also be making it more expensive to insure by either increasing its power and pushing it into a higher insurance band or using non-standard parts that will be more expensive to replace

  • tick icon

    Build a no-claims bonus

    While you must inform your insurer of any damage to your vehicle, if you avoid claiming for any minor damage it will help you build your no-claims bonus – potentially earning you discounted premiums in the future

  • tick icon

    Avoid features you don’t need

    Insurers will offer you a number of extra features to boost your cover, but all will increase the amount you pay. Only add ones that you know you’ll need – and consider shopping around for policies such as breakdown cover

  • tick icon

    Consider telematics

    Ford Kas are a common choice for young drivers, who often benefit by taking out telematics cover . It allows your insurer to track your driving and lets you earn discounts by demonstrating safe driving habits
