LANCIA is now badge enginered together with Chrysler.
The new Lancia Thema is a slightly modified Chrysler 300C. There also is a Lancia Voyager.
The previous familyvan of Lancia, the Phedra, was sharing chassis with Peugeot 807/Citroen C8 but now they have choosen to cooperate with Chrysler instead.
Lancia is the option for those who want a more elegant looking car instead of the Chrysler 300 which looks more like a muscle car. Both cars have some reassemlance with the Bentley Continental.
Lancia is now making a comeback here and I hope to see some of their cars on the road.
The new Ypsilon & the Delta are still Fiat based and they are the first Lancias sold here since 1994.
Back then they ceased their sales because of quality issues like rust problems, probably they have done some improvements about that so the cars can withstand the coastal climate and salted roads we have here.
Lancia has a meager market here, but some big city folks buy Lancia & Alfa Romeo. They like the elegant design and that the car has a bit different look compared to other anonomous looking cars, especially the japanese ones.
