Chrysler Ypsilon given a makeover

Details and pricing details announced for the 2014 Chrysler Ypsilon.

See the image below? That’s the revised Chrysper Ypsilon, which has been given three new trim levels, new paintjobs and new model names. The 2014 Ypsilon is on sale now.

The choice of engines is unchanged so that means either a 70bhp 1.2-litre petrol, 96bhp 1.3-litre diesel or 86bhp 0.9-litre petrol. The 1.3-litre Multijet is the most frugal, thanks to a claimed 74.3mpg. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard.

Replacing the old naming convention is Silver, Gold and Platinum (what’s wrong with bronze?). Silver is the replacement for the S model and has the same equipment list as before. It does, however, benefit from restyled seats.

Gold is the SE replacement. You get air-conditioning, electric door mirrors, leather-trimmed steering wheel, Blue&Me Bluetooth connectivity and 15-inch alloys. Platinum adds 16-inch alloys, rear electric windows, cruise control, autonomous parking and climate control.

The new paintjobs are Khaki Grey, Marble Grey and Sapphire Blue. Those who crave a more personal touch can choose to have various parts of the car in a matt dark grey or glossy black. On the inside you can choose between Coconut, Lime or Watermelon accents.

“Ypsilon has always been, and will remain, an important car in the Chrysler line-up. We know it is up against some tough competition and that is why we have refreshed the range to make it even more competitive,” Chrysler UK’s Damien Dally commented.

The cheapest Ypsilon 1.2-litre Silver starts from £9,895. A 0.9-litre TwinAir Auto Platinum will set you back £14,895.
