Striptease Lancia Ypsilon nears climax - AutoReview.nl

For a long time, Lancia seemed doomed, but in 2024 the illustrious Italian brand will be revived. Then the brand new Lancia Ypsilon emerges. What the car will look like is becoming increasingly clear

Lancia has long been leading a moribund existence. The brand only has one model in its portfolio: the Ypsilon. The model dates back to 2011 and is only available on the home market. For a long time they couldn't get enough of the smallest Lancia. In 2022, 41,000 were sold and it was even the most popular car among Italian consumers.

Nevertheless, for many years it seemed that the historic brand Rover in Saab would go after. Because you can't walk on one leg. The demise of Lancia would have been a shame, because the modern car owes a lot to the founder of the brand, Vincenzo Lancia.



When Lancia also ended up under the Stellantis umbrella, it became increasingly clear that the group management did not want the brand to die. The resurrection will begin in 2024 and Lancia will then have 10 years to prove itself.

The first new model under the current regime will be the Ypsilon. Even in its new guise, it will again be a compact car. With nods to the past, but with modern technology. It will in any case be available with a fully electric drivetrain, but combustion engines will probably also be on the program.

Lancia Ypsilon (2024) has futuristic and nostalgic features

The nose of the new Ypsilon looks futuristic, with LED lamps in the form of two long, horizontal lines, with a short vertical LED strip in between. Lancia opts for a historically responsible design for the rear. There, the Lancia Ypsilon gets two round taillights, in the style of the Lancia Stratos.



For those who don't remember: the Stratos was a sports car specially developed for rallying. And not without success: the car won the Monte Carlo Rally three times in a row in the 1970s, three world championships for constructors, from 1974 to 1976, and even three European championships for drivers.

The full unveiling of the new Lancia Ypsilon will follow in February 2024. The technology will probably be taken directly from other Stellantis models, including the Opel Corsa in Peugeot 208. But secretly we hope that Lancia will still give it a nice, idiosyncratic twist. Time will tell.
