Default Chrysler Ypsilon supermini revealed

Quote:
This stylish new Ypsilon supermini that will relaunch Chrysler in the UK next June will be launched at next month's Geneva motor show. The Ypsilon is a 3.84m-long, five-door hatch clothed in dramatic sheet metal that also serves as the Lancia Ypsilon, pictured here, in Italy.

It is based on the Fiat 500 platform, but the Ypsilonís wheelbase is 300mm longer to boost rear legroom and make space for an extra pair of doors. Fiatís Ďthin seatí technology will be used on the Ypsilon for the first time, also liberating cabin space.


Badge-engineered for the UK, the Chrysler Ypsilon will break into the tough supermini market with a blend of high spec and keen pricing, likely to start from around £11,000. The Ypsilon has historically sold well in its home market because its interior can be specced with leather and Alcantara trim, which is unusual for a supermini.

A choice of three engines will be available: a 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.3-litre diesel and a 0.9-litre TwinAir. The diesel and TwinAir promise sub-100g/km CO2.

At Geneva, Lancia will also show a rebadged version of the Chrysler 200 saloon, badged Flavia, and its version of the 300C, the new Thema. The 300C will hit the UK in 2012 and be powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel.

Meaning: no support + no comfort = bad for long commutes.

Not sure this is true. We have these at work when we work a launch, which is 12-14 hours

and they are very comfortable...

+1 for that chair. i haven't found one where my five finger discount works yet, but they're in the conference rooms and a few select desks. love 'em. i might need to try doughnuts to the facilities people.

as for the car, it could be worse. not really a fan of the knock-off nissan taillights. but for a small car, i've seen worse.

There are no Chryslers in Britain? I didn't know that...

I have a chair like that in my office, with very few adjustments. (base model)

The hinge point is so far forward that if you sit in the chair, your center of gravity is behind the hinge point, and the chair reclines. You actually have to sit far forward on the front edge of the chair, and not use the back support, if you want to sit up straight.

And it reclines so far that you feel vertigo before the chair stops leaning back.

It would be a fantastic chair if this particular one had a recline-lock. Without it, it is unuseable for anything but lounging. I can't believe Herman Miller builds any of them without something as simple as a recline-lock.

We all had full-function ones when I worked at McDougal Littell. They were good for the creative process of developing text books, and comfortable for the irritating task of revisions to meet state requirements.

perhaps it's a bad sign for Chrysler that we're all more excited to talk about an office chair than their car?
