Frequently asked questions
What is the Ford Ka?
The smallest member of the ever-expanding Ford stable, the Ford Ka was introduced to the market in 1996, and made an immediate impression. Loved for its affordability, dependability and low running costs, it was considered by many as way better than any other urban runabout on the market.
The second generation Ka went on sale in 2009, and has proven to be just as popular – in fact it’s the third most popular Ford model after the Fiesta and Focus.
How much does a Ford Ka cost to insure?
According to our data, the average cost of insurance for a Ford Ka is £571.63**.
Ford Ka insurance quotes vary from model to model, so you need to factor that in to your budgeting. If you're looking to save money and lower your premium, it's worth taking a look to see which insurance group your car is in.
Ford Ka insurance groups are set by the Group Rating Panel, which consists of members of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and Lloyds Market Association (LMA).
The role of the Panel is to assign every new car model to an insurance group from 1 to 50. As a general rule, cars in the lower insurance groups attract a lower premium. This table shows the insurance groups of the various Ford Ka models.
The good news? The latest Ka model falls into insurance Group 2, which makes it a fantastic choice if pennies are tight.

Can I cut the cost of my Ford Ka insurance?
There is plenty you can do to try to lower your insurance premium on your Ford Ka. You may want to think about telematics insurance for starters. Increasing your voluntary excess may also be an option (just be sure that you can afford it in the event of an accident). Another factor of importance when it comes to calculating car insurance premiums is where you park your car overnight – a locked garage may be safer than the street in the eyes of some insurance providers.
