Chrysler Ypsilon owner reviews

"The Chrysler Ypsilon's high-spec and quirky styling are overshadowed by poor road manners and a cheap interior."

    I bought my wife Lancia Ypsilon 1.3 Mjet diesel Gold, with some extras on it such as great panoramic sunroof. I bought it used with only 8 thousand kilometers on it, for 8 thousand Euros. Car is great in the city, even if it's only 3.8 meters long it is decent in space inside. This engine 1.3 turbo diesel with 95 Hp is exelent. The car is faster 0-100kmh than my father 1.9TDI Audi sportback and it consumes less diesel. Yes it does have some body roll. But who am I to judge that, I drive 2012 BMW 1 series which is briliant to drive. But honestly this Lancia ( Chrysler) is a car with soul. There is just something about Italian cars

    Bought new and have been very pleased after 3 years, no faults and cheap servicing. High spec and good to drive. The top model is only £11.5k and is very economical and very high spec'd for that. Not sure where £15k comes from on the summary page. Great feature is the large boot that can actually be used for more than a quick shopping trip! I am about to trade up for the 0.9 Twin Air Platinum, better economy, quite quick and no road tax!

    Having just had my car for just a month, i am shocked at the reviews given my so called motoring experts. I found the car to be very quite on motorways and around town and it is a very comfortable ride. At 60mph im getting 59mpg and at 52mph a fantastic 61.4 mpg. The car is well equipped for a basic model and with a 40 litre tank very cheap to run.

    I've owned my Ypsillon for 2 years now and must say it's faultless - very comfortable to drive, plenty of room in the front, it's good in wintry conditions when there's ice and snow and excellent mpg. The car is cheap to run and service, it has good boot space, but the only problem I've had is hitting my head when getting into the car. I'm not the tallest (5ft 6 ins) but more often than not I bang my head getting into it.

    I bought my Ypsilon about 5 months ago and must say its the best small car i have had my last car Vauxhall Agila was ok but nowhere near the drive or finish of the Ypsilon. Some reports say it handles badly but in and around town I find it more than competes with the competition. It is very economical and although my model has no air con which I would only use 2 weeks a year it has everything one would need in a small city car and look great.
