Ford is revealing details regarding its upcoming sedan and hatchback vehicles piece by piece.

The company, which released the first pictures of both sedan and hatchback earlier last week, has now confirmed that the vehicles will carry 'Ka' (hatchback) and 'Ka+' monikers in Brazil, reported Motoroids.

The cars, which are expected to reach Indian shores in 2015, will go on sale in Brazil by the end of this year.

Ford Ka+

Ford Ka+ (pronounced Ka Mais which in English translates to Ka 'More'), a sedan variant of the Ka hatchback, would be manufactured at the company's plant in Cama├žari, Bahia. The car, which is likely to take on the likes of Volkswagen Voyage and Renault Logan in Brazil, would be a sub-4 meter sedan in India to reap the benefits of subsidy.

Under the bonnet, Ka+ will be powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder flex-fuel engine, which is tuned to produce 85 hp of power and 105 Nm of torque. The high-end trim of the sedan is likely to get a 1.5 liter engine, which can generate 111 hp, and would be capable of running on gasoline and ethanol, as reported by Carwale.

Ford Ka

Ford Ka, the new generation Ford Figo, is likely to draw its power from naturally aspirated 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine, which can churn out a power of 85 bhp and peak torque of 10.7 kgm. The engine would come mated to five-speed manual gearbox and would be capable of running on gasoline and ethanol.

The car, which is tested for fuel efficiency, is expected to give 13 km/l in urban and 15.1 km/l in extra-urban on petrol, and 13 km/l in urban and 15.1 km/l in extra-urban while running on ethanol.

Speaking of the India-bound version of Ka hatchback, rumours claim the company will offer both petrol and diesel engine variants. Though the detailed specifications of the vehicle are scanty at this point of time, the diesel model is speculated to come with a 1.5 litre TDCi diesel engine, which can generate a power of 89 bhp and a peak torque of 204 Nm.
