Driving experience

Whether you’re running around town or cruising the motorway, the new KA+ is always responsive and fun to drive. Inside, it’s full of clever technologies that make life easier and can even help cut the cost of driving. For example, Cruise Control with Adjustable Speed Limiter can save you fuel by keeping your KA+ within a pre-set speed limit.

Headlights that turn on automatically when needed

Automatic headlights use a sensor that detects failing light at dusk, or when there’s a sudden change in light conditions. This triggers the automatic headlights to turn themselves on, which can make driving easier.

Less tiring, more economical journeys

Cruise control with Adjustable Speed Limiter helps keep your vehicle within a pre-set speed limit of your choice. It can save you fuel, minimise the chance of you speeding and, like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your chosen speed whilst saving you from having to keep your foot on the accelerator pedal.

Sensors that take the stress out of parking

Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.

Extra control during hill starts

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
