Looks can be deceiving. At first glance Chrysler's new Ypsilon compact hatchback appears to be a three-door, but look closer and you'll see that it’s actually a five-door. The rear door handles are neatly tucked into the C-pillar giving the Chrysler a svelte appearance and, from the front, you might call it striking. The distinctive headlights sitting either side of the shield-shaped grille set it apart from the other, more generic hatchbacks and when you move around to the rear, the drama continues: the well-sculpted LED tail-lights at either side of the boot-opening give the car a unique, yet satisfyingly rounded rear end.

 

Can it gather fans like the 500, and is it as good to drive as a Ford Ka? Read on to find out…
