Chrysler Neon bows out

CHRYSLER'S Neon saloon is making an exit from UK price lists after six years as a well-equipped budget four-door.

Fully launched in the UK in 1998 (it was imported in small numbers from 1996) the Neon offered a three-year/60,000-mile warranty before many other manufacturers, free optional automatic transmission and a host of features as standard.

More than 18,000 units have been sold since its UK launch, making this the biggest market for the Neon outside North America, with a redesign in 2001 freshening of the car.

Although there is no immediate replacement for the Neon, a medium-sized car wearing a Dodge badge is expected to appear following the launch of Dodge in the UK market in 2006.
