Not really, the pattern is more diamond-shaped (faux-mesh). The Fusion Sport has a similar grille pattern.

I think it's a decent car overall considering the Ka+ competes in the same price range as the Mitsubishi Mirage and Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva (Euro equivalent of the Chevy Spark).

Re: Freestyle is back...

Looks pretty decent for what it is. But how does this not overlap a lot with the EcoSport? Unless they don't sell that in India. But that would raise the question, "why not just sell the EcoSport in India?"

Is for the size. In India the cars with less than 4 meters of length pay less taxes. The EcoSport is 4,10 meters, the Ka+ 3,90 meters.

They sell the EcoSport in India. https://www.india.ford.com/suvs/ecosport/
The US-spec EcoSport is actually made in India.

The Freestyle (aka Ka+ Active in Europe) is positioned lower than EcoSport.
It's a raised-version of the entry-level Figo hatchback (aka Ka+ in Europe).

Ka+ Active (Freestyle) next to the standard Ka+ (Figo)


Hope that clears things up.

PS: In Europe, the Ka+ Active will be the entry level "Active" model (these are raised versions of regular hatchback car models), the first "Active: model unveiled was the New Fiesta Active.

The Indian-spec EcoSport retains the old short rear bumpers to keep its overall length within 4-meters (3998mm to be exact). https://www.india.ford.com/suvs/ecos...anium-plus-at/
