Mrs Lawrence, who previously drove a Peugeot 108, came to Gates as she was looking to buy a used Ka. However, she instantly fell in love with the brand new Ka+ when she visited the showroom. When she enquired about the new model, her budget allowed her to upgrade to the Studio series of the brand new model.
Mr Lawrence previously drove a Ford Fiesta, which he originally bought from Gates, but was so impressed with the new Ka+ and it's surprising spaciousness,he enquired about purchasing a Zetec version of the new model Ka+ .

Sales Manager at Gates of Hertford said: "The new Ford Ka+ has only
recently been added to the Ford range but has already proved a popular choice
as an economical, yet spacious small car" Steve continues "with
competitive entry level prices, generous specification and clever new
technologies, the Ka+ offers real value for money as well as practicality"
By purchasing their vehicles in March, Mr and Mrs Lawrence also saved a combined total of £760 by purchasing their vehicles before the end of March. New road tax charges are due to be implemented from 1st April 2017, meaning that many motorists will end up paying more road tax as a result.
