Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The Ypsilon just comes up short when you consider interior quality. The hard plastics on the dash and the cheap looking switchgear let it down and the fact is the Ypsilon is not as well finished as a Ford Ka. For those on a budget where these aspects are not quite so important, it is a sound supermini.

Chrysler has made a very comfortable supermini. The high seating position allows for all-round good visibility. There is plenty of leg- and head-room up front but the rear should be reserved for children. Six-footers will be rather cramped in the rear because of the Ypsilon’s coupe-like lines but noise levels are reasonable even when you are travelling at motorway speeds.
