Chrysler Ypsilon ReviewChrysler Ypsilon Road Test

This is a tall car. By the standards of normal superminis, you sit relatively high up in the Ypsilon.

Ride and Handling

This is quite a pleasant car to drive, but that slightly damns it with faint praise. Its ride quality and handling characteristics are not the same calibre as the best of its rivals. On a twisty road it hangs on ok but it is not a distinguished drive. On some of the tighter bends you tend to find it scrabbling a little nervously for grip. In town the steering is fine but on a winding country road it can start to feel a touch sloppy. The car’s driving manners are pleasant but undistinguished. If you are a leisurely kind of driver that may not matter much, but this may not be the best choice of car for a keen, press-on driver.

Ease of Use

This is a tall car. By the standards of normal superminis, you sit relatively high up in the Ypsilon. It has quite generously sized windows, so you get a pretty good all round view out of the car. The boot is modestly sized at 245 litres. The car has standard stop-start, and it works efficiently to cut unnecessary engine idling while waiting at traffic lights or in an urban queue. In town it is quite a light and easy car to drive, and it has a handy 'City' switch to lighten the steering and make the job of manoeuvring into a parking space just that bit easier. You can specify a self-parking system as an option. You can tow with this car, its braked towing limit is 1,000 kg.
