Curbside Outtake: 2012 Chrysler Ypsilon

Take a very frosty morning, some voluptuous curves and combine them with a seasonal red and you have the perfect automotive bauble to hang from the tree.

Chrysler? Well, the Lancia Beta cast a long, rusty shadow over the brand which withdrew from the UK market in 1994, so FCA badged the Ypsilon as a Chrysler over here. I suppose that grille does look a bit like the one on the PT Cruiser, so it sort of makes sense. It didn’t last long though as the Chrysler brand was withdrawn from the UK market in 2015.

Best wishes for the season, may 2023 bring you more cheer and many CC photo opportunities.
