Chrysler officially pulled out of the UK market in 2017 on the back of slow sales and a push to let its retailers focus on selling the more profitable Jeep brand instead. By the time of that decision most of its cars were very old fashioned and left far behind by newer competition in many key areas. It had some moderate success with quirky models such as its PT Cruiser and 300C saloon and had a technical alliance with Mercedes’ parent company, Daimler, which perhaps should have delivered more but by the time it pulled the plug on UK operations, the brand lacked the models that buyers were flocking too by then, notably SUVs.
Perhaps Chrysler’s most impressive model and a car which had real presence thanks to its strong styling and Bentley-esque grille at the front. This was built at a time when Chrysler was allied to Daimler and the 300C had many Mercedes mechanicals. Built as both a saloon and estate, the 300C had a 3.0 V6 diesel and petrol of the same size and layout but the car that caught the eye was the SRT-8 which had a 6.1 litre V8 engine.
As with the 300C, at the time of this car Chrysler was in partnership with Mercedes and the Crossfire was its version of the German’s SLK roadster. It had a V6 engine, a similar chassis and suspension as the Merc, but despite some sales success by Chrysler’s standards, it never quite recovered from being seen as the poor relation of the two. Available as either a coupe or convertible, the Crossfire had the potential to become more popular than it did.
A five or seven-seater MPV which sold in reasonable numbers compared to rivals such as the Renault Espace, but its cause was not helped when in 2007 the Grand Voyager was awarded just 1.5 stars out of 5 for adult protection in the EuroNCAP crash test programme. It folded up in a frontal impact, and what made it particularly newsworthy is that Prime Minister of the time, Tony Blair, used one to ferry his family around in.
A five door hatchback with some of the most challenging looks of recent times in the car market. Even if you didn’t like it though, the American hot rod-inspired styling certainly turned heads and made the Chrysler stand out from the crowd. It was quite well received at the time as a clever reinterpretation of a family hatchback and found its niche for those wanting practicality flavoured with a dash of individuality, something the PT Cruiser delivered.
A five-door supermini based on the Fiat Panda chassis, but sharing some basic components with the Fiat 500 and strangely, General Motors-owned cars such as the Vauxhall Corsa. The Ypsilon was pitched relatively upmarket and had a well-equipped interior and a softer ride than many others, notably those from the VW group.
