For The Chrysler Ypsilon is an attractively-styled alternative to the more run-of-the-mill superminis. It should be competitively priced and well equipped, too.

Against It’s not as good to drive as most run-of-the-mill superminis, with wallowy handling and a lumpy ride. The interior isn’t as appealing as the exterior, either.

A classic case of style over substance. The Chrysler Ypsilon just isn’t cheap enough to make up for its shortcomings in several key areas.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

If you like the styling of the Chrysler Ypsilon, we’d recommend you consider only the entry-level 1.2 S version. The 0.9 Twinair and 1.3 diesel models might be marginally cheaper to run, but they’re way too pricey to buy. The 1.2 S might not come with air-conditioning, but you can add it if – like many buyers – you see it as must-have.

Even better, though, we’d suggest looking outside the Chrysler brand at either the brilliant Ford Fiesta or the super-trendy (and cheaper) Fiat 500.
