The best used V6 cars for under £10,000

The V6 engine has featured in all manner of cars over the years, but which are the ones can you now buy for under £10,000?
 

The second-generation range of the Ford Ka+ city car, unveiled ahead of its sales launch later in 2018, includes an SUV-styled version.

The Ka+ Active is the second such model to be announced by Ford, and will follow the larger Fiesta Active into showrooms, sitting above the Studio and Zetec grades in the line-up.

The SUV makeover to the Ka+ Active involves a ride height raised by 23mm, additional body mouldings, roof rails and a bespoke 15-inch alloys wheels. A new metallic paint shade, dubbed Canyon Ridge bronze, and black front grilles also feature on the model, which is expected to target rivals such as the Suzuki Ignis and Vauxhall Viva Rocks.

Inside, the Ka+ Active gains scuff plates stamped with its name, all-water mats, bespoke fabric on the seats with stitching in a Sienna Hazel shade, and a revised leather steering wheel design incorporating cruise control switches and further stitching.

Diesel power added

   

A diesel engine joins the Ka+ range for the first time, a 1.5-litre unit of 95hp. It will be offered alongside new versions of the 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with either 70 or 85hp. Low range torque on these units has been improved by up to 10%.

The new Ka+ range includes updated exterior styling and will also benefit from Ford’s advancing technology. Rain-sensing wipers, a heated windscreen and rain-sensing wipers will all be available for the car, as will the latest Sync 3 infotainment system accessed through a 6.5-inch screen. Further options include electronic automatic temperature control and rear parking sensors.

Ford introduced the Ka+ in 2016, replacing the previous and long-lasting Ka model. Since then more than 61,000 have been sold. When the new version goes on sale prices will start from £10,795 – prices for the Active are yet to be revealed.
