Chrysler Ypsilon (2011) at the Geneva motor show

Fri, 04 Mar 2011

Amidst the gloom for Lancia enthusiasts of rebadged Chryslers on the Lancia stand at Geneva, there were several variations on the new-for-2011 Ypsilon small car.

2011 Lancia Ypsilon – the lowdown

What you’re looking at in our photo gallery is a five-door hatchback based on the 500/Panda/Ford Ka platform. In past iterations the Ypsilon has been a three-door, and Lancia has styled the new edition with concealed door handles to continue the familiar look with a practical twist.

Inside the Ypsilon also gets a bespoke interior with central instrument panel. Engines are the 900cc TwinAir or 1.2-litre eight-valve petrol engines; and the 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbodiesel. In addition the Ypsilon can be had with LPG fueling for the 1.2-litre engine.

Is the new Ypsilon going to sprout Chrysler badges?

Yes. The plan is to sell the little Lancia as a Chrysler from September in the UK and Ireland. Be prepared to be surprised.
