The Chrysler Ypsilon Black&Red features a high-technology interior specification and alloys
16 February 2012

The special-edition Chrysler Ypsilon Black&Red has gone on sale in the UK with prices starting from £12,750. Chrysler is trying to lure a greater proportion of younger buyers with the Ypsilon Black&Red, which was first unveiled at last year’s Bologna motor show wearing a Lancia badge.

The Chrysler Ypsilon Black&Red gets a well-specced interior featuring black and red fabric seat upholstery, dashboard and door linings, aircon, Bluetooth connectivity and a hi-fi system.

The exterior of the car features black and red bi-colour paint, 16-inch multi-spoke alloys, fog lamps, black glass and body-coloured side skirts as standard.

The Ypsilon Black&Red is offered with three engine choices: a 1.2-litre petrol (£12,750), 0.9-litre litre Twin Air (£13,950) or 1.3-litre MultiJet (£14,950).

Chrysler is offering a zero deposit and £199 per month finance deal on the 1.2-litre version.

I haven't seen any of these on the road yet. Soon after it was released I went into the Chrysler dealer for a look and the salesman was VERY keen, kept saying how it would be such a good advert for the car if people saw someone driving around in one. Made me feel very special.

I was surprised how small it felt inside. Its very narrow, and there is a lot less legroom for the driver than in my MINI. And those rear seats are very deceptive: it looks like there's a lot of space behind the front seats, but actually the back seat base is really short, more like a shelf!

Appropriate colours - a bit of a gamble...

Needs chipping really...

Think I should take one for a spin..!

I lost a Clio sale to one of these. I have yet to see one, I saw a Delta few months ago, however I haven't seen another since.

Shame on you!

I can't see the spec's or the colours attracting a youthful audience alone but the finance package certainly will.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

Do we really need special edition versions of what is supposed to be a fairly special car in its own right? Dare I suggest that it is because they can't sell the things.

It sounds very much like history repeating itelf - anyone remember the special "Hi-Fi" edition of the Lancia Beta Coupe?

[/quote] that's because the small lancia has always been based on a panda...it's nice to have it available here at last because the last 2 generations were lovely little cars.

saw my first one last week. Unfortunately, all in silver, so you lost some of the styling's effect...

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
