It wasn't quite a new model, but more like a five-door variant for the old Lancia Ypsilon.
The new Ypsilon introduces luxury items into the small-class category. It follows the eco-friendly system Multijet II with Start&Stop technology for the diesel and other unique features in this category. On the options list we can now find features like the Blue&Me-TomTom Live navigation system or the second generation of an automated parking system called “Magic Parking”.
The 3-door look is kept due to the hidden rear-doors handles. The overall 3840 mm (12.6 ft) long vehicle kept a distinctive look for its segment. The big grille, bi-Xenon headlights and distinctive rear LED-lights made a clear statement that the model is a “fashion vehicle”. A new range of alloy-wheels was also offered for the vehicle.
Lancia offered the newest family of engines it had at the time, starting with the acclaimed Twin-air engine. It's a 900 cc unit with a turbocharger, which was awarded with the “Engine of the Year” award, but not many people wanted to buy it despite its 85 hp available. For the transmission, Lancia offered either a manual or a semi-automatic, double-clutch, gearbox (DFN). All the vehicles in the lineup respected the Euro 5 emission norms.
