Next Lancia Ypsilon = New Chrysler Compact?

Last Updated:

Why not.
Chrysler and Lancia will mere into pretty much one brand within a few years.
So this new, redesign small Ypsilon could very well end up over here as a new Chrysler compact model.
It is about 8 inches longer than a Fiat 500 and uses engines ranging from 1.2 to 1.4 Liter.
So this is quite a small car.
But it could give Chrysler something new and interesting.

As you can see, the next model will be available as a 5 door. Which is not available with the current generation.

This current generation came out in 2003, with a few changes in 2006.
So it is time for a new one.

  1. I had read there would be a larger 4-door companion model to the Fiat 500 sold in the US, possibly branded the 600.. looks like this is it.

    With the PT Cruiser selling at $15-16K, there would be no economic sense to brand something this small a Chrysler.. but as a Fiat, it could command a price premium over the 500.

  2. I think you are 100% right.
    It does look very much like the 5 door 500, which is supposed to be coming out.
