all these facets ensure Ypsilon owners will stand out from the crowd. And ll enjoy a comfortable, chic and city runabout that s up in cutting edge technology.


The Chrysler might look like a three door, but it s actually a the configuration that makes up 77 per of the supermini market in the UK.

At just long and 167cm wide, the is smaller than many of its rivals. Yet it has one of the largest luggage in its segment and is one of the best in class it comes to passenger space. It has class-leading versatility thanks to its hatchback design.

And it manages to all this in an exterior that a uniquely elegant style for a compact car. Setting the further forward creates the of a larger, sleeker vehicle. It has allowed the designers to make the capacity larger.

The Chrysler s height, and therefore its generous room, is disguised by two sweeping The first takes the line of the and extends along the waistline, up into the rear pillar. The rises with the A pillar to the upper arch of the glass.

It then drops to follow the edge of the tailgate window. It s a the Ypsilon shares with its big the Delta.

At the rear, are used to draw minimum from the battery while the maximum impression. The lights been developed with Marelli Automotive Lighting, and at the feature integrated Daytime Lights (DRL) which turn on when the engine is

Finally, the rear reversing and fog light sit below the back neatly protected from the that go hand in hand urban motoring.


The Chrysler Ypsilon was designed to a large car feel in a small car and the interior embraces this

The dashboard has a line that the curve of the windscreen and ties it the door panels to give the a feeling of extra width.

The don t just give the illusion of An all-new roof lining noise inside the passenger by 2 decibels (dB). To demonstrate the of that improvement, a reduction of 3dB to a 50 percent drop in noise. The seats, each with seatbelts, have been to be as supportive as a larger car s.

And the front use new slim seat technology for the time to increase leg space for passengers.

The cabin isn t just a place to be, it s bright as well. are used to illuminate the dashboard. And the instruments sit in a central display the console housing the entertainment and systems, to create an inclusive for driver and passengers alike.

But it s the Ypsilon s level of equipment makes it a benchmark vehicle in its It s the first supermini to include Parking, BlueMe™-TomTom LIVE, the Fuel System and innovative clusters.

Magic Parking

a parking place in towns and is frequently a patience-testing experience, so the Ypsilon can be specified with the Magic Parking system.

a button on the dashboard activates the which then uses sensors mounted in the front combined with wheel sensors to measure the length of parking spaces. If it detects one is free from obstacles and is the of the car plus 40cm at either the driver is informed by a beeping and a message on the dash. If the driver to park in it, the car s computer takes the steering while the driver control of the accelerator and brake and is a speed of just over

The driver can deactivate the system at any either by turning the wheel, out of reverse gear or pressing the on the dashboard.

BlueMe™-TomTom LIVE

Chrysler Ypsilon can be specified the latest and most versatile of Fiat s award-winning BlueMe™

Each car can be equipped with the for BlueMe™-TomTom LIVE. So even if don t specify it on purchase, they or owners of their Ypsilon can buy it at a date.

It s based on the TomTom and features a touch screen allows occupants to manage calls, satellite navigation and all the information required. It even control of a media player via the edge next-generation touch

It uses TomTom LIVE which combine accurate information, such as road or traffic jams, with route calculation. Chrysler customers will get a year s subscription to LIVE. The removable sits in its special holder to the of the steering wheel.


It s not just inside that the Ypsilon is innovative. It also a step ahead of the competition its Smart Fuel System. device replaces the classic cap and automatically opens and closes the pump nozzle is put inside it. It refuelling easier and safer by harmful gas emissions and fuel

It also prevents misfuelling as it s to pump petrol into a car (or vice versa) fitted this system.

Setting further apart from new Ypsilon features a 360° sound system that s a factory fit option in such a car. It consists of four 40W Dome tweeters, four 80W Neodymium mid-woofers and a digital amplifier.

This then three signal processing simultaneously to increase the depth and of the sound and equalise the stereophonic to produce a more enveloping for listeners.

All this equipment a wide-range of standard kit. s a height and reach-adjustable steering electric front windows, (50/50 S model) split seat and height-adjustable driver s


The Ypsilon benefits from of the same cutting edge technology that has transformed Group Automobiles into one of the s leading makers of environmentally transport.

Three engine are available, two petrol and one diesel. All with the StartStop system as and all are Euro 5 emissions compliant. In the model, a semi-automatic five-speed can be specified.

All other models feature a manual transmission. All engines power with economy to the Chrysler Ypsilon isn t just responsible and therefore economical to it s effortless to drive too.


The range starts the latest evolution of the famous engines family. This eight-valve unit features variable valve timing optimises the opening and closing of the to ensure the engine still peppy while operating at efficiency.

The engine develops a 102Nm of torque at 3000rpm power at 5500rpm is a respectable And thanks to StartStop, overall consumption is reduced by 5 per cent CO2 emissions are an impressively low 115g/km.


The other petrol available in the new Ypsilon is 2011 s Engine of the Year, the TwinAir. combines Fiat Powertrain (FPT) revolutionary MultiAir with a small capacity engine plus turbocharger.

The are ground-breaking, giving the 875cc more power (85bhp) and (145Nm) than the larger 1.2-litre Fire engine. It is more economical and at 97g/km the semi-automatic gearbox version), has the CO2 emissions of any quantity production petrol engine currently on

The bedrock of the TwinAir is the MultiAir that underpins it. This features electro-hydraulic valve that reduces fuel by controlling the air going into the via the inlet valves without the throttle. It enables airflow to be cylinder by cylinder, cycle by phase by phase, according to the s and therefore the engine s requirements.

By controlling the combustion process, losses of around 10 per cent are while valve control can be optimised to reduce emissions and driveability through improved responses.

The TwinAir also an ECO button on the dashboard. By pressing it, is limited to 100Nm at 2000rpm for greater increases in economy and in emissions.

1.3-litre MultiJet

The engine in the range is the lively MultiJet II turbo-diesel with its and 200Nm of torque at 1500rpm for low speed cruising. This generation engine is equipped a variable geometry turbocharger, a new displacement engine oil pump and an with smart charge .

The features faster injectors the first generation of its kind. Now eight injections per cycle, it greater speed, flexibility and in its various phases of operation. By the combustion process in this operation is quieter while and nitrogen oxide (NOX) are lowered.

The injectors are also and with 40 per cent fewer they re more reliable their predecessor, thereby cheaper running costs.

isn t solely enhanced by the capable line-up. Chrysler has left no unturned in its efforts to make the as economical as possible. As a consequence, it on new generation low rolling resistance EfficientGrip tyres. These use new to make them 10 per cent This results in 1.9 per cent fuel economy, which estimates could save a 30.6 litres of fuel 12,500 miles.

These are also longer lasting and greater braking capability.

Chrysler Ypsilon is equipped StartStop and a Gear Shift (GSI). Specifically designed for driving, StartStop is like an invisible co-pilot who automatically off the engine when the vehicle is But all the systems that guarantee and safety on board, such as the climate control and windscreen remain operational.

When the system detects that the needs some charge, or the dips the clutch to engage gear, the engine fires

By cutting the engine when it isn t StartStop saves up to 15 per cent in over the urban cycle. The GSI helps the driver to change at the optimum point for best consumption.


The new Ypsilon has been engineered the ground up to be more cosseting any car in its class. The secret of its success lies in the suspension, which is front and rear.

The MacPherson suspension uses a lower arm of ultra-high strength material, a modular cross member is from low thickness, high steel sheets. As well as comfort, this helps impact energy through the car to the Ypsilon safer. The front also features shock with split mountings to loads to the body through two routes to filter out road better, and improve acoustic

A new anti-roll bar has had its weight reduced and connected to the shock absorbers to its anti-roll effect. Lastly, new have been designed for the suspension. These have a dynamic stiffening than to maximise comfort on bumpy and reduce noise. A torsion is fitted at the rear.

With new this guarantees greater on bumpy roads and improves insulation without affecting holding.

High strength have also been in the Chrysler Ypsilon s body. improve the car s energy absorption in both front and side but also make it lighter to fuel economy.

Another innovation employed on the new Ypsilon is the load path. In frontal this transfers crash to the lower, more resistant of the vehicle. It increases the vehicle s to absorb frontal impacts, control deformation of the passenger and reduces the chance of intrusion to the compartment.

High performance steel has been used for the bumper cross member, the lightweight strong plastic has been employed on the rear cross member. The energy material behind the third path is made of a special absorbent plastic. This damage in low speed impacts and the risk of knee damage in collisions.

It s no accident that all these combine to make the new Chrysler one of the safest cars in its class. It was at the Fiat Safety Centre, and was gathered from all possible of accident including front, and side impacts, roll pile-ups and collisions with The varying speeds at which occur were also for, as well as obstacles the car collide with, and the physical and size of occupants.

Initial was carried out by virtual means, more than 20,000 of mathematical modelling. The results then confirmed with than 80 crash tests, 100 on a HyGe Sled and about 100 on components and sub- systems.

The features a wealth of safety as standard across the entire There is VDC vehicle dynamic (standard on Auto and optional on SE and versions), complete with ASR control plus Hill and ABS anti-lock braking with Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).

It s not just in comfort terms the Chrysler Delta has been to excel. It s also had safety into it from the ground up. The is that it s won a European New Car Assessment (EuroNCAP) five star safety rating.

This is thanks to six airbags as standard (front, window and bags on both sides), and three-point safety belts, load limiters and pretensioners to the front seats.

In addition to the Delta is packed with equipment to make driving as possible. It comes with ABS braking and Electronic Brake (EBD) to ensure maximum power is deployed in an emergency Powerful disc brakes are front and rear, and in an emergency the hazard lights are automatically on.


It s not just the Chrysler Delta s level of interior space has the hallmark of an executive car. Its shape also cloaks the of large-car equipment levels until now haven t been to drivers buying a mid-sized hatchback.

Designed to ensure the Delta tops the class it comes to comfort, safety and dynamics, innovative technology has used from the very design stages.

Absolute System and Drive Steering

To enable drivers to make the of their Chrysler Delta, it s fitted with some electronic systems to make at the wheel more enjoyable yet safer. Prime among is the Absolute Handling System. is an amalgamation of various existing such as Electronic Stability (ESC), Hill Holder to perfect hill starts time, Anti Slip (ASR) which uses and engine control to optimise at any time, and MSR which cuts in to engine torque isn t interrupted if a down change is needed a climb.

Where the Absolute System really stands out the crowd is by encompassing Linearisation Feedback (LTF), Torque Control (TTC) and Drive Torque (DST) in its suite of

The new DST is an electronic steering system suggests the moves drivers carry out to maximise road and therefore security. It does through generating torque at the wheel courtesy of a continuous between the electric power and the Absolute Handling System controls the car s dynamics. The DST means if the car begins to oversteer, the most manoeuvre to maintain control is to the driver.

The DST also has a Mu-Split Function (MCF) which over surfaces with levels of grip. This automatic countersteering to prevent the from spinning and reduces distance by 10 per cent.

The LTF comes to when it detects high acceleration. Assuming this to be the of sporty driving it boosts the wheel s resistant torque to road feel for the driver, through fast bends.

The also features a new TTC system to improve the transfer of torque to the wheels. When the driver through a bend, the brake is modulated on the inner front to increase traction to the loaded wheel. By distributing torque the front-driven wheels in this dynamic manner, it simulates the of a Limited Slip Differential to the driver a feeling of improved and better traction.


As well as being packed systems designed to make it comfortable, safer and better to the Chrysler Delta features a level of standard equipment. in standard S guise it comes a radio/CD with MP3 files air conditioning, adjustable steering with audio controls, windows front and rear, and me home headlights that switching off.

The SE model trim enhancements such as a finish to the dash and doors, a compartment in the cabin, chromed handles and window surrounds, and alloy wheels. The SR builds on with two-zone automatic control, Alcantara leather Cruise Control and 17-inch wheels. Options include a sunroof that takes up 80 per of the total roof space, a Audio System and an electrochromatic rear view mirror.


Both SE and SR trim of the Delta also feature Nav which come equipped BlueMe™ Nav. The result of a venture between Fiat and this extremely simple-to-use allows drivers to manage music and phone calls and safely, using either controls or buttons on the steering

BlueMeTM and the Navigation System are on Nav versions and are also standard on (*Nav versions are available on the SE and SR levels).

As well as this, the range-stopping model is fitted with sensors, dusk sensors and a pressure monitoring system. car s top model status is highlighted by exterior D badges replacing on the B-pillar, twin chrome tail pipes and unique alloy wheel designs.


The larger the car, the difficult finding a parking can be. Chrysler provides a solution to problem with its optional Parking.

Pushing a button on the activates the system which uses radar sensors in the front and rear bumpers with wheel speed to measure the length of empty spaces. If it detects one that is from obstacles and is long to accommodate the car, the driver is by a beeping noise and a message on the If the driver decides to park in it, the car s takes over the steering to out the reverse parallel parking The driver retains control of the and brake and is permitted a speed of over 4mph.

The driver can the system at any time, either by the wheel, changing out of reverse or the button on the dashboard.

Lane Control

Today s roads are so that another pair of always comes in handy. And s exactly what the Chrysler s optional Lane Departure provides.

The main element of is a TV camera with image-processing This sends data on the of the road in front of the vehicle to the computer enabling the car to recognise markings. The car s control unit decides what sort of inputs are needed to keep the car the lines on the road.

If these t applied and the car starts to drift out of its a motor generates torque on the to tell the driver which they need to steer to in the lane. It only intervenes if the car to change lanes without The driver can override it at any time.


The Chrysler Delta from Fiat Powertrain (FPT) experience of designing, and building small, yet highly and powerful award winning Whichever one of the two petrol and two diesel buyers choose, they can be of optimum fuel economy and torque.

1.4 litre Turbo-Jet

Giving a combination of sporty and great value, and developed as of the FIRE (Fully Integrated and Engine) range of engines, power unit guarantees the possible performance for the lowest fuel consumption (44.8mph Cycle), and a 2 year/18,000 mile interval helps to make a highly economical choice.

1.4 MultiAir

The second engine in the range is a more powerful 1.4 litre petrol which FPT s award-winning MultiAir technology.

technology works by allowing the metering of air stroke-by-stroke, cylinder-by-cylinder the intake valves without the throttle. The benefits of this are wide ranging: maximum is increased by up to 10% because of the adoption of a mechanical camshaft profile; and torque is improved by up to 15% through intake valve closing that allow maximisation of air in the cylinder. By eliminating pumping a 10% reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 is achieved over naturally and turobcharged engines not using technology.

Optimised valve strategies during warm-up and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (iEGR, is realised by re-opening the intake during the exhaust stroke) that substantial HC/CO and NOX can also be achieved.

MultiAir combines to allow this to exceed the excellent MPG of the 1.4 Turbo-Jet, 49.6mpg (Combined) with higher BHP and torque figures.

1.6 120bhp

The first diesel in the Delta range is a 120bhp FPT MultiJet available to customers Delta SE and SR versions, with a 6 semi-automatic transmission available on SE

MultiJet is another ground-breaking from FPT which in this guise allows eight per combustion cycle. This is due to the new MultiJet II injector patented by and integrated into the ECU by Magneti The shutter in the injector is hydraulically which allows a larger diameter, with reduced strokes.

This servovalve fuel quantities to be injected the combustion chamber quicker, and greater accuracy.

The shutter has been reduced to 20µm which has allowed the interval two consecutive injections to be dramatically This allows the injection to be modulated, to achieve greater process control. This new mode is called Injection Shaping.

The results are reduced fuel consumption of 60.1mpg and reduced pollutant emissions.

a customer chooses the semi-automatic the benefits of MultiJet technology are with 61.4mpg (Combined) and CO2.

2.0 MultiJet 165bhp

The powerful engine in the Delta is available exclusively on the Delta Customers can thus enjoy the luxurious trim level the most appropriate engine.

The 2.0 features all of the MultiJet technology on the 1.6, but in a more potent offering 165bhp and 360Nm of Economy figures are still at 55.4mpg (Combined) with CO2 at 135g/km.
