Lancia at the Geneva Motor Show with ‘Italian Glamour’
Lancia travels to the Geneva Motor Show with the title ‘Italian Glamour’, as from March on every Lancia will be available with ‘Pack Exclusive’. Six different models will be present, and two new market introductions. On the other side Lancia still does not mention a single word about a new coupe, but they’ve already registered (link) a domain name ‘New Flavia Coupe’.
The Flavia Cabriolet however will be introduced at the beginning of this summer. The new Lancia is based on the Chrysler 200 and the combination of attractive styling elements and the right colours give this car certainly that chique Lancia worthy look. The Flavia will get a 2.4 L 4-cylinder engine with 175 hp attached to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Two Flavia Cabriolets in ‘ Bright White’ and ‘Mineral Grey’ will be presented to the world both equipped with an unknown premium package (Gold or Platinum).
The Lancia Thema in Geneva will be the AWD version. Hoping to attract customers in the U.S. with this four wheel drive system, the Thema AWD still has the 3.0 L V6 MulitJet II with 239 hp and the 3.6 L V6 Pentastar with 286 hp at its disposal. A smooth 8-speed automatic gearbox from ZF will accompany the engine offerings.
The Ypsilon won’t be left in the cold either. In true Lancia style the smallest of all Lancia’s will have an interior in ‘Bi-colore’ trim, with lighter and darker details.
Ultimately the Voyager receives more positive feedback Lancia initially counted on. Therefore the current comfort offering (Gold) has been extended with ‘Silver’ and the most luxurious package ‘Platinum’. These addtions are followed up by two new colour schemes: ‘Cashemre Pearl’ and ‘True Blue’ (Blu Lancia maybe?). Thanks to the addition of the traditional ‘Alcantra interior’ to the program (as with the Phedra), the Voyager will feel even Lancia than before. The one showed in Geneva will have the familiar 2.8L MultiJet from VM Motori we tested earlier.
