With centrally mounted instruments, the gearlever on the dashboard and a high driving position, you feel as though you’re sitting in a mini-MPV rather than a supermini. The driver’s seat is height-adjustable, but it’s tricky to get comfortable because the steering wheel has no reach adjustment and the pedal area is cramped. The dashboard has a logical layout, so it’s a shame rear visibility is so poor.
Chrysler Ypsilon space & practicality
There’s plenty of space for those up front, and the Ypsilon has impressive kneeroom for such a small car. Rear headroom is limited, though, and tight rear shoulder-room means you probably won’t want to fit three people in the back. The boot is smaller than those in many rivals, too.
Chrysler Ypsilon equipment
The entry-level 1.2 S model is sparsely kitted, missing out on alloys and air-conditioning. SE trim gets these, plus a leather steering wheel and heated door mirrors, but it costs a lot more to buy. Expensive range-topping Limited models have leather seats, climate control, USB connection, front foglights and electric rear windows.
