Chrysler-badged Lancia Delta for the UK Unveiled
text size: A- A+
Chrysler’s Delta is actually going to be sold in the UK and presumably Ireland. The facelifted model was shown at this year’s Geneva Motor show in March, where the tweaked model impressed with its exclusive colors.
In Britain, the Delta will come with a number of petrol and diesel engines, starting with a choice of two 1.4-liter four-cylinder units delivering 120HP and 140HP respectively. There’s also a 120 HP 1.6-liter, but the pick of the litter is the 200HP 2.0-liter turbo diesels delivering up to 61.4mpg on the combined British cycle and emissions as low as 120g/Km.
UK pricing has yet to be released and will likely come with the actual market debut of the model, which is expected to take place shortly.
There's no official word on the group's US plans for the Delta hatchback, but we would like to hear your thoughts on the matter and in particular, if the Delta's styling fits in the Chrysler model range and if you want such a car to be sold in America. Tell if you want the Chrysler Delta to make it across the pond in the comment section below.
Meanwhile, European dealers will have a number of Chrysler models they sell under Lancia badges: the new 300C sedan, the restyled Voyager large minivan and even the 200.

Fiat is really making a big mistake selling the Lancia Delta as a Chrysler in the UK. Chrysler sells hardly any cars in the UK at all (Dodge pulled out last year) and those after a stylish Italian hatch really have no interest in a Chrysler badged vehicle. Ironic that Alfa is selling like hotcakes in the UK and a relaunched Lancia could easily have shared this enthusiasm for Italian cars.
