New Lancia/Chrysler Ypsilon Unveiled Ahead Of Geneva Debut

Lancia’s new Ypsilon will be shown to the public next month at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Ypsilon is based on the same platform as Fiat 500, and available only as a 5-door version, unlike the previous model that was a 3-door model. Despite two extra doors, the new model still keeps the 3-door look with hidden rear door handles and compact size.

The new Ypsilon is just 3.84m long, 1.67m wide and 1.51m high, with a wheelbase of 2.39m. In the mainland of Europe this new supermini will be sold as Lancia Ypsilon, and here in UK and Ireland it will be rebadged as Chrysler Ypsilon.

Customers here can choose from three engines right from the launch: a 96 bhp 1.2 litre petrol unit, 85bhp 900cc TwinAir, and a 95bhp 1.3 litre Miltijet turbodiesel. The Chrysler badged Ypsilon will arrive here in UK and Ireland in September. Prices are expected to start at around £11,000.
