The 2017 Ford Figo hatchback and sedan which go by the names Ka and Ka+ respectively in Brazil have received a model year update. The additional features have inflated the price tags a bit.

Both Ka and Ka+ now come with third head restraint for the rear bench along with a three-point seat belt for the fifth passenger. A similar update is about to be introduced in the Brazil-spec 2017 Toyota Etios family which is set to be launched on 20th of this month. The updated Ka family will also come with standard split rear seats.

The Ka+ sedan’s lineup now gets a new top-end variant called 1.5L SEL Plus which incorporates rear parking sensors and leather seats. There are no visual changes or powertrain improvements. The Brazilian Ka+ is slightly longer than the India-spec Figo Aspire sedan which had to comply with the sub-4m norms to take advantage of the excise duty benefits.

Both Ka and Ka+ are powered by 1.0- and 1.5-litre flex-fuel engines which are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The former is capable of 85 PS and 105 Nm of torque while the latter is good for 110 PS and 146 Nm of torque.
