The new Italian-American supermini Chrysler Ypsilon.
The pictures below show the new Italian-american-built Lancias, uniquely badged as a Chrysler Ypsilon especially for UK markets due to the fact Fiat would prefers to not confuse it with the previous model there launched. The British Ypsilon which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, It’s based on a stretched version of the Fiat 500 platform. Lancia also will present its version of the 300 and badged Thema for Europe, alongside a new Flavia and Flavia convertible, based on the Chrysler 200.
Chrysler Ypsilon for UK.
It’s an super-compact five-door citycar, only 3.8 metres in length so it’s surprisingly how it can offer room for five passengers. Based on the Fiat 500 and Ford Ka, but with longer Fiat Panda wheelbase (2390mm) it claims its small size, class-leading boot space, luxury and a affordable price. The third incarnation of the Ypsilon promises also low emissions with two engines 1.2-liter 69 hp gasoline and a 1.3-liter Multijet 95 hp, while a new 0,9-Liter TwinAir 85 hp has first been seen on the Fiat 500, all combined to a five-speed manual transmission. The cabin is impressively comfortable, and has especially great leather bucket seats. The compact-size up, which up now has sold well to stylish Italian women, will be available in UK with four body bi-color and two three-layer tint. British buyers can opt among three trim levels: S, SE and Limited, all with standards Start & Stop.
With UK’s prices likely to start at around £13,000, the Chrysler Ypsilon will fight the A1 and the MINI.
