Why is the Chrysler Ypsilon Black&Red called Black&Red? Yes! Correct! It is black and red. In fact, this in-your-face theme is taken to the extreme. It has red doors, for example, and the front is red too – but the bonnet and roof are black. And check-out the interior. The seats, dashboard, and door trims feature both colours in abundance. I 'think' – maybe – it looks pretty good, but part of me still thinks 'eww!' Either way, this colourful supermini also has sixteen-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, side skirts, and black glass. Clearly, this special edition suits shy and retiring motorists - unless they loath black and red, of course.

The Chrysler Ypsilon Black&Red is listed with three colourful engines, the: 1.2-litre petrol, the 0.9-litre TwinAir, and the 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel. Variants cost £12,750, £13,950, and £14,950 respectively. Does that sound expensive? This five-door run-around also has air- conditioning and a 360 degree hi-fi system - plus power steering, electric front windows, and a CD player. This fashion statement has a 245-litre boot too, which is smaller than the Ford Fiesta. However, the rear seats fold flat to increase cargo capacity to 820-litres. That is a 'fair' amount of space for black and red colour charts. This complements its composed handling, decent ride, and fun-focussed character. Should I paint my bedroom to match it?
