The Lancia Ypsilon was one of the most popular cars in its segment.
Back in 2015, it was the only model Lancia still produced.

The Ypsilon’s roots are to be found in the Lancia’s Autobianchi Y10, the first premium subcompact launched in 1985.

The first generation of Ypsilon was brought to the public in 2003, a vehicle that was bigger and more spacious.

The 2015 model came with a refreshed exterior design, as well as a modernised cabin along with new technology.
The exterior got a mix of soft lines and wedge-shaped features. In the front, the Ypsilon had a large chrome grille with large halogen headlights.

The passenger doors were camouflaged as the rear handles were hidden hear the third pillar, a nice visual effect.

The cabin was given great attention to details, thus making it bright and welcoming for the passengers, giving a feel of a bigger and more expensive car.

The engine options was large, customers having to choose between a 1.2-liter petrol engine that was quiet and not thirsty at all, two 1.3-liter diesel with power ranging between 78 and 95 hp and also LPG and methane versions, which were of great success.

Once a World Rally Championship winner, the struggling Italian brand Lancia threw a contender in the small class category at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
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.

Lancia made a final series for its small-segment contender, the Ypsilon, in 2010.
The Unyca version was designed for women, and it showed it.

It was a long and painful road for the once glorious Lancia to the brand that struggled to survive the world financial crisis. Some of its models were already rebadged as Chrysler, while others were on their last stint, such as the Ypsilon. The little model was sold in the U.K. as a Chrysler and under the Lancia brand on other markets.

Lancia built the second generation of the Ypsilon on the same platform as the Fiat 500 in Poland. It shared some of its engines and suspension, but it was available as a three- and five-door version. The Unyca special edition featured different colors and new, parabolic rearview mirrors. Lancia offered the car with special decals on the bumpers, b-pillars, and door-mirrors.

Inside, the Ypsilon Unyca featured a distinct upholstery with hand-stitching on the seats and on the dashboard. The engineers installed an additional button for the LPG version next to the steering wheel.

Under the hood, Lancia installed a choice of three engines with gasoline, diesel, and LPG. Power ranged between 69 and 77 hp. All versions were paired to a five-speed manual gearbox.

In 2006, the Italian carmaker introduced a facelift for its smallest vehicle in the stable, the Ypsilon.
It sold it under the Chrysler badge in the U.K. and as a Lancia in Europe.

Based on the Fiat Punto platform, the Ypsilon tried to be a fashion item more than a regular, city-segment hatchback. But the Italians couldn’t transform the little Lancia into the same phenomenon as the Fiat 500, despite their efforts to hire high-profile movie stars in promoting it.

With a sportier look, the Ypsilon tried appealing to the company’s former glorious racing heritage. At the front, the lower bumper area received a trapezoidal grille with two side scoops for the fog lights, while the grille received a new mesh-grille pattern. Its headlights sported a minor change at their top, on the turn-signal area. In the back, the carmaker installed new taillights with clear lenses instead of the older red ones, plus a bumper with two small reflecting red strips.

Inside, the carmaker introduced a new center stack and a new infotainment system. It featured a touch-screen display for the navigation system. Depending on the option and engine, the Ypsilon’s instrument cluster sported one or two gauges, apart from the LCD screen mounted on top of the panel.

Under the hood, Fiat kept the same gasoline engines but improved the diesel version. The carmaker introduced an automated five-speed gearbox to match the customer’s requests and advertised it as an automatic.

The base for this car is the Fiat Punto but was only made available in the hatchback, 3-door version.
it came in with either a 1.1 or a 1.4 litre petrol engine. The 2003 model represents the second version of the car, after being launched in 1996 ad receiving a minor facelift in 2000. It still is Lancia’s best selling model, which is a bit odd, considering that Fiat is marketing Lancia as a luxury brand. This second generation has an increased interior and more standard features, including ABS and air conditioning as well as a number of optionals like CD player, alloy wheels and sequential manual gearbox.
