It would have been more nippy, and more refined! *thinks he sated this earlier when the thread was started but cant remember...and cant be bothered to check*

The Ka's design isn't bad, but I think the StreetKa looks much better:

I remember when I was in Italy, the tour guide was explaining the cars of Europe and we stopped by a Ka. She started talking about it, and jokingly stated the steering wheel cost extra. I didn't realize at the time it was a joke, and I wondered how a person could drive a Ford Ka if they didn't order the steering wheel. Wow I was stupid...
