American manufacturer Chrysler has recently announced its decision to pull out of the UK market by 2017. This is due to its inability to really grasp what British buyers want. There are still three models available at Chrysler dealerships, though most are used now. Due to this there are some great bargains to be had, and whilst the four cars on offer in their range aren’t as good as European rivals, they’re still solid cars to own and drive.
At the entry-level of the Chrysler range is the Ypsilon supermini. This rebadged Lancia was actually a reasonable success for Chrysler. It is undoubtedly one of the most striking looking superminis that you can buy, though it’s certainly not the most refined. It is however cheap to run, features some interesting engines borrowed from Fiat, and it’s sure to make you stand out from the crowd. It was relatively expensive when it was sold new, but high levels of depreciation make the Ypsilon a great used-car bargain.
Chrysler in the US is known for its big, brash, luxurious cars. The 300C was Chrysler’s attempt to challenge the German-centric luxury saloon market in the UK. Unfortunately however, it wasn’t the greatest of successes. It’s not that the 300C was a bad car, it just didn’t possess the qualities of a Mercedes or a BMW. It’s boxy styling won over some fans though, and it’s gangster-esque reputation meant that footballers up and down the country loved it. Like all Chryslers, the 300C can be had for very little money second hand.
The most recognisable, and longest-running model in the Chrysler range is the Grand Voyager. This seven-seat minivan was a genuine rival to the Ford Galaxy and the Renault Scenic in yesteryear, but unfortunately the latest Grand Voyager feels dated next to its modern rivals. That coupled with the increasing popularity of family SUVs over MPVs contributed to the Grand Voyager’s demise. It’s still a practical solution for bigger families and airport taxis, but it’s not as efficient as the MPVs on offer from competitors. Alan Sugar is going to have to be on the lookout for new cars for his Apprentice contestants though, as it was consistently throughout the popular series.
