Lancia has managed to place itself under the spotlight once again today, by releasing a number of photos and details for the newest models that will be unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show next month. Some belong to the Italian carmaker, while others have both Chrysler and Lancia blood in them. In order to bring the company’s popular Delta hatchback up to date, its facelifted version will also make its way to the floors of the show. Originally launched in 2008, also in Geneva, the compact range flagship returns with a number of exterior changes, including a brand-new grille designed to reflect the new "Lancia family feeling", plus new proposals for trim levels and engine versions.
