Lancia Ypsilon with something unique luxury that triggers an emotion, the joy of "owning" but without the pretentious display, looking for unique in all areas of the state of his true personality, without being influenced by the judgments of others.

The new Lancia Ypsilon, which will market from June in major European markets in September and the United Kingdom and Ireland with the Chrysler brand, is the fourth series of the model of success - more than half a million vehicles today are on the way - born in 1985, Y10 since its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It was a miniature lighthouse style features and content ever seen in an economy car of the day, marking the pioneering spirit that was to accompany the model until today. He has served Lancia Y 1996: elegant, elite, with a strong personality, which reinforced the notion of "luxury custom." Consequently, we arrived in 2003 at the third generation, Lancia Ypsilon, a brought to the world of technology and the city-car "class" until then exclusively reserved for models of upper segments.

Now the direction taken by the new Ypsilon, which confirms that he is the "fashion city" car par excellence, which continues to charm with his personality, sophisticated and unconventional style of class, but has become more mature and adult with a broader appeal. And underneath this polished exterior that carries the prestigious "Made in Italy" label is all the substance of a car with advanced technology as recently emphasized by the four awards in the motor "International Year" competition .

unique to shine engine competitors' in all categories in which he competed, and was named "International Engine of the Year 2011". Together, Twin Air, super cars, the new Lancia Ypsilon Multijet follow ecological systems II and Stop & Start and the unique characteristics of this category, as the new "Blue & Me, the TomTom LIVE" and "Fuel Smart" system "in addition the innovative second-generation Magic Parking, Bi-xenon headlights and LED tail lights.

A refined and innovative Italian 5-door that looks like a typical 3-door, "the New Ypsilon is a very compact car, so it remained at the" B "but with a high level of livability and comfort : Although only 384 cm long, 167 cm wide and 152 cm tall, with a wheelbase of 239 cm, the new Lancia Ypsilon can accommodate up to five people and in relation to its size, has a roomier boots in its category and is one of the best in its class in terms of passenger space. Without increasing the size of the rear passenger area, good accessibility and comfort have been achieved with the use of "thin seats," a technology used here for the first time by Fiat Group Automobiles.

In this way, the new Ypsilon continues its domination of the major urban car category, and whether recent market, where "5-door" market account for two thirds of segment B and the needs of a target wider than that achieved to date including men and young families. It is precisely in terms of quality, comfort and feel of the interior, the new car is determined to make all the difference. Join us and you become aware of the fine materials and combinations of colors, attention to detail and the many customization options.

From exclusive 16 "alloy wheels, side skirts and tinted headlights of a black coat with the bright logo, a" Blue & Me-TomTom Live packs and accessories.

The new Lancia Ypsilon has its sights on becoming the premium of the City of alternative cars in Europe, as it is designed for demanding clients who like to stand out from the crowd, but at the same time want a car that is pleasant and comfortable daily use. Not to mention that today the product itself is not the only "reward" element to attract a potential customer. For this reason, the brand has strong sales and after sales proposals to satisfy the desires, needs, tastes and aspirations of many different clients. An example? The warranty extension designed by FGA Capital, a finance company specializing in the automotive sector. What is interesting about this solution is extended to 96 months, unlimited mileage and content: comprehensive coverage of vehicle components. And a feature even more innovation to market is the same level of coverage for the duration chosen for the loan.

Style: tradition meets the future

Elements, which recalls the past masterfully reworked in modern style. This is the original style of the new Lancia Ypsilon, which in turn reveals its fiery, unconventional character where elegance and sophistication of its ancestors is recast, embraces the new cross-fertilization or consolidation solutions, in any obvious way.

While the exterior of the vehicle off a thrilling style, the interior is the perfect place for elegance and innovation to join forces: on one hand there is the know-how meticulous in the tapestry of furniture, which has always provided Lancia cars of the competitors, so it is the use of very sophisticated design solutions. This union between elegance and innovation, the production of single-class Lancia as the best Italian luxury products, combines the unique style with advanced technology. And it is precisely the Italian stylistic characteristics that transform a product "Made in Italy" to something unique. This is as true for fashion accessories and fashion for a successful car. Yes, the success of a car is the result of a winning bet on a flash of stylistic intuition mediated by research on new trends in taste, new customer needs and expectations for the market and competing models .

Therefore, it follows a recipe that is difficult to prove by the strictest judge: time.

Exterior: Personality and Innovation

Although compact, the new Lancia Ypsilon car sports a clear layout, this time the weight and size of the graphics of "game" the amounts in various ways, by dividing them, however, over the same dimensions as the previous Ypsilon. In fact, the previous model, even if the step is nearly identical, the differences in design: the head forward, the front projection has been reduced to increase the rear, which offers a more spacious luggage compartment. Last but not least, it was decided an important five-door. Ultimately, this will increase by almost three cents, and cut the total length of two centimeters away from the height for a more elegant look.

The volume of the front, good transport links and pointy, reveals a new network: as a metamorphosis, the glass rod moves up and embracing the logo, and leaves room for the horizontal, with "lance-shaped advice. On the one hand, the maverick spirit and the genes of the Lancia Ypsilon, secondly, a recognition of the years past sixty / seventy network.

With a unique design that is independent of other factors, the headlights by Magneti Marelli Automotive Lighting to develop a horizontal width of the emphasis placed on the front. These Bi-Xenon headlights are rounded to elliptical forms, which give the car more aggressive and determined "look". In addition, the ends of the lights to define the size of the wings on the side. These and the rack resting on the hood, as the coverage was limited to a free surface of the horizontal design is subtly reminiscent of the lines Lancia Ardea.

semi-sporty elements that hint at the personality and character of the car, and these are balanced by the lines are not flashy: the rear door handles are hidden, integrated structure, which underlines the door handle. The net effect is that a compact 3-door of the city with all the comforts of the 5-door model. convex side of the doors is carved delicate concave side, which disappears on a sign attached to a dynamically generated.

Viewed from the side, well, you notice two dynamic generous curves: the first steps out of line scans of the cover along the belt and behind the pillars. The second, climbing from the bottom of the upper front pillar trace an arc of glass, cut the first curve from the bar below and down to delineate the outer edge of the rear window. The effect of a clear separation between the roof and the rear pillar is a familiar landmark for the Lancia Delta.

The overall volume of the back is tapered for better aerodynamics, and features a pronounced tailgate, cut in the middle: space made plate meets the bottom of things, such as jewelry, is the rear window that is bounded laterally by the lines down from the pillar and arch spoiler above.

Shoulders out of the side panels and generate volumes along the sides of the back door, and embrace the link with the taillights. His position, exterior and vertical development, as highlighted Lancia typical presenting features: a long bar of light guide LED sidelights, and below, the brake lights, side at the base, a home triangular area of ​​the indicators.

The bottom of the bumper of a central black band that embraces and protects the reversing light and rear fog lamp, lighting the overall volume.

The overall design of the new Lancia Ypsilon was designed from the outset to distinguish between different parts of the car to promote the duotone version of the boldest sleekest and most attractive as possible. After all, color was never just a matter of aesthetics for Lancia Ypsilon. Instead, it is part of a product philosophy based on elegance, glamor, personality, playfulness, creativity, style and the largest variety of customization options. And the new Ypsilon no exception, as its range of exterior colors are to show the wider category: 2 pastels, 2 shades with three layers, four metal, four metallic colors with an iridescent effect flakes and 4 two-tone colors.

Interior: the charm is given a practical

The new Lancia Ypsilon confirms and extends the legacy of its predecessors and adds even more elegance and innovation. The qualities that have always distinguished Lancia small city cars such as exquisite, unique upholstery of the Interior, has been reorganized, combining class and hi-tech content. The concepts that guided the design of space are rooted in the glorious past of the brand, but with the addition of a strong technology focus.

From the drawing board stage, the inspiration for the interior was a hug. The dashboard is embraced by the door panels, rear seats, surround perfectly.

The design of the instrument panel aims to highlight the contrast between the fabric insert that extends to the occupants, with the first line that traces the windshield, which he describes as an amphitheater. Curves constructed to create an effect of perspective, vanishing points located on the rear panel to accentuate the width.

The interior is created by subtracting the volume and is represented by hollow surfaces that combine usability and insightful different functional aesthetics of seduction.

The analysis of the forms, the construction is visible in the layers. The first is filled and covered with soft materials to reinforce the impression of comfort and tactile experience, reminding the occupants of a home environment, as if they were sitting comfortably on your couch.

sinuous performance in more technical areas that characterize the vents and center console. The contrast between the elements that are characterized by a thin black ribbon that cuts vertically through the blogs and instrumentation script in the center of the gearbox, which gives an impression of lightness emphasized in the ends with white LEDs . The console housing the radio and climate control system is a floating rest in the central diffuser, while the mouths of pop metal "tears" on the web. Finally, the design of the door panels is simple, involving all the comfort, containment of the high seats provide a sporty touch.

Fabric: synthesis of Excellence

Lancia Ypsilon family has always been synonymous with style and driving pleasure. Now, the New Ypsilon has grown exponentially, improving its offer with the addition of a significant number of new features. The most obvious are the rear passenger doors, plus a range of environmentally friendly engines and a range of features - standard and optional features - designed to improve comfort on board.

Versatility: The 5-door, but the 3-door looks

The new Lancia Ypsilon is an Italian style 5-door "with the appearance of a typical 3-door." It is a very compact car, so it remained at the "B", but with high standards of comfort and livability: Although only 384 cm long, 167 cm wide and 151 cm tall, with a wheelbase of 239 cm, the New Ypsilon can accommodate up to five people in relation to its size, has one of the boots of the most spacious in its category and is one of the best in its class in terms of passenger space. Without increasing the size of the rear passenger area, good accessibility and comfort have been achieved with the use of "thin seats," a technology used here for the first time by Fiat Group Automobiles.

Engines: power and respect for the environment

The new Lancia Ypsilon range of engines, including gasoline 69 hp Four EVO II 1.2 and 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir, the latter also DFN gearbox with semi-automatic, the 1.3 Multijet 95 bhp turbo diesel, II, and after 1.2 Four EVO II bi-fuel (petrol and LPG).

1.2 Four 69 HP EVO II (Euro 5)

The latest evolution of the Fire family, the HP 69 1.2 8V comes with Start & Stop system ensures that the fuel consumption of less than 5% and CO2 emissions (115 g / km is the stored value) that the engine of our time, the outbreak of the head of its class. Thanks for the updates on a continuous and flexible architecture, this family of engines is also a leader in the category that demonstrates the use of the unit continuously variable valve timing, as it is able to optimize valve timing (opening and closing) all engine speeds. Thus, the fuel consumption of a small amount of EGR at low loads, with less pumping losses and improves the performance of others to ensure the availability of low-speed torque (102 Nm at 3000 rpm) and power at high rpm (hp at 5500 rpm, 69). The result is an engine that offers the greatest flexibility for energy consumption of rations in the category.

85 HP TwinAir 0.9 (Euro 5): "International Engine of the Year 2011"

The second engine is ideal for use in the city, but compared to the previously mentioned 69th bhp 1.2 Fire EVO II, has more power (85 hp) and torque (145 Nm / 1900 rpm). The first of a new family of two-cylinder engines, Fiat Powertrain, which produces 65-105 hp, 85 hp turbo, this results in significantly reduced fuel consumption and emissions (up to 30% less compared with the efficiency of the engine ).

Moreover, for the most "eco-driving and reduced fuel consumption, just press the ECO button on the dashboard, which limits the torque of 100 Nm at 2000 rpm. In this way you can achieve the levels of CO2 in the upper segment: 97 g / km with semi-automatic box DFN and 99 g / km with a manual transmission. Among other things, the gears semi-automatic CFD, which began in the Ypsilon in 2003, developed with Magneti Marelli, has been updated to provide greater driving comfort and, simultaneously, reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

A real gem of engine design, the two cylinders MultiAir uses revolutionary technology developed and patented by Fiat Powertrain, which was introduced in 2009. The heart of MultiAir is a new electro-hydraulic valves control which reduces fuel consumption by checking the air directly through valves (without using the throttle). MultiAir reduce emissions (by controlling combustion) and greatly improves performance by improving the driveability. Indeed, compared to a traditional gasoline engine displacement equal engines MultiAir guarantee an increase in power (up to 10%) and torque (up 15%) plus a significant reduction in emissions CO2 (10%).

Thanks to these features, the engine Twin Air has won four awards are the 'International Engine of the Year 2011 "competition, excelling compared to competing engine' in all categories in which it competed. The jury of 76 journalists and industry experts from 36 different countries, provided that its success TwinAir cylinder engine category (less than 1000 cm3), and chose the "International Engine of the Year 2011" shows that is the first prize in the competition. TwinAir Fiat Powertrain engine won the "Best New Engine 2011" and "Best Green Engine 2011" awards.

II 95 hp 1.3 Multijet (Euro 5)

In order to respect the environment associated with the conduct of satisfaction, the new range offers the Ypsilon 1.3 Multijet Animation II (Euro 5), with Start & Stop system as standard, which delivers a maximum output of 95 hp 4000 rpm and a torque of 200 Nm at just 1500 rpm.

Equipped with variable turbine geometry, a new variable displacement pump and oil pump motor and alternator with a "smart charging", 1.3 MultiJet II produces only 99 g / km CO2 emissions and merges with the rotation of the second generation Multijet engines .

Detail II Multijet engines to ensure the economy, environmental compatibility and performance unprecedented in the market. Compared with the first-generation Multijet engines, the fuel supply is changing faster than injectors to take time away from multiple injections. In particular, it is possible to make the main fuel injection module, a series of different stages and to provide for those who follow. Servo-balanced piston valve MultiJet II system can handle up to eight injections per period, which offers greater speed, flexibility and precision in various stages of operation. The nozzle is also simpler and more reliable, because its structure is less complex, and shares 40% less.

Thanks for this new type of injector, now strategies to optimize the combustion of further progress can be made, such as injection rate Conformation involving two consecutive injections so close in time to produce a profile modulated continuous supply of fuel into the cylinders. With this method, the combustion process is improved with the advantage of quieter operation and particulate matter and nitrogen oxides (NOx). Today, the Multijet II engines meet Euro 5 mark completely and at the same time, a decisive step towards values ​​more stringent regulations in the future.

State-of-the-art tires

New Lancia Ypsilon is an excellent performance in reducing CO2 emissions has inspired a new generation of 15 "tires with low rolling resistance, developed by Goodyear. Designed for technology and innovative materials state-of-the-art, Goodyear EfficientGrip lighter structure which offers to reduce rolling resistance. This means less CO2 emissions and reduce fuel consumption without sacrificing the ability to drive at all.

Green Start & Stop technology and Gear Shift Indicator System

All gasoline and diesel engines are fitted with the Start & Stop, already adopted in the models Musa and Delta, which cuts the engine off temporarily and then restart to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Specially designed for city driving, the system automatically stops the engine when traffic requires the vehicle stops (traffic lights, congestion and temporary stoppages, for example), keeping all the features that guarantees comfort and security active edge (lighting, air conditioning, radio, windshield wipers).

Turn off the engine when the vehicle is stopped to avoid unnecessary fuel consumption (up to -15% over the cycle), to reduce emissions and improve the acoustics.

The device can be enabled or disabled using the button on the dashboard.

Engines equipped with Start & Stop also has a Gear Shift Indicator (GSI), a true "co" which quietly invites the driver when it is time to change gear, which leads to a more efficient engine in terms of fuel consumption. For example, the GSI can offer travels up through an indication on the control panel to allow the engine to operate at a lower speed or degrade the maximum torque available.

Self-satisfaction: the redesigned chassis and suspension innovation

New Ypsilon is a machine that allows you to live and travel at great moments of relaxation, but also because the suspension system, which must be updated in order to control the level of comfort and excellence. More specifically, from the current model of the new Lancia Ypsilon proposes a novel scheme McPherson front suspension has been streamlined and offers high performance in a crash. It 'been reduced by using a self-supporting arm produced a high resistance of the material, the first time in Europe and parts of the modular frame for the goal of small thickness, high strength steel. Ready for future applications, the transverse divisions so-called third line of trucks will definitely improve the crash performance during high-speed crash, a pedestrian impact and effect of insurance.

The new front suspension has a "split" the type of shock absorber, which transfers the charge body by two different routes and thus to better filter out road vibration and improve the acoustics by the current model due to dynamic stiffness of the low tires, while ensuring superior performance through a damper axial stiffness nothing less than a day.

The front suspension is also a new stabilizer bar to improve its effectiveness. Solution to the suspension bar has been replaced by the solution connecting rod is to maximize the effect of the shock bar clip. Moreover, the effectiveness of the weight of the stabilizer is optimized, yet another anti-roll. In addition, the arm front suspension bushes have been studied and designed for maximum comfort while driving and the bumpy roads, and improved the noise is also achieved by a dynamic stiffness lower than it is today.

The torsion beam rear is equipped with a bush over today's news Ypsilon, which provides more comfort on bumpy roads and better noise isolation without compromising grip. The form has been designed to maximize absorption of the bumps without sacrificing the second longitudinal elastic aspects of the performance of kinematic properties of the rear suspension.

Platform for a new Lancia Ypsilon is also an innovative feature was developed according to two main principles: safety and reduce vehicle weight. In particular, it was possible to combine these two aspects of performance, with extensive use of high strength materials, which can be used to increase the absorption of energy, both front and side impacts by reducing the structure. Compared to its predecessor, the second innovation is the implementation of the third truck in front of the line, which offers better control of deformation front impact, because of its ability to transfer loads to smaller, more durable part of the vehicle, reducing thus lead through into the passenger compartment.

bolted parts also demonstrate the technical development of this platform, such as the use of high performance steels soaked the front bumper and the adoption of light weight and resistant "noble" plastic (Xenoy) on the front rear bumper crosses.

Technology: the luxury of innovation

The new Lancia Ypsilon small lighthouse is a real full of exclusive material that makes it a benchmark in its segment. Travel on the new model, there is a bright and welcoming interior that ensures a high degree of comfort, but also an area of ​​high technology. So here we have the LED light on the dashboard and the roof to absorb operating sounds with innovative polyester material, reducing interior noise by about 2 dB, ensures very quiet: a reduction of 3 dB corresponds a 50% reduction in the intensity of noise.

All this adds to the great Gran Luce sunroof that allows glass surface 0.70 m2 - a record for the B segment - provides excellent interior lighting.

First in the "city car" category, the new Lancia Ypsilon offers a very interesting content, including "Magic Parking", "Blue & Me-TomTom Live", the power system "intelligent and innovative projectors.

Second generation "Magic Parking"

It is often difficult to find a parking space in cities with heavy traffic. Of course, once you find one, actually park your car can be difficult because space is so strong. Therefore, the Lancia Ypsilon is equipped with an innovative system called Magic that rental, which is activated by a button on the dashboard assists the driver to find a free parking space right, measure and control the vehicle lateral movement while the driver maintains control of the vehicle longitudinal motion everywhere.

A further development of the system already used on the Delta, the new system Lancia Ypsilon Park Magic allows automatic multi-maneuver "parking and reduce the required size of parking spaces at only 4.6 meters. The device is available with speed manual gearbox and CFD.

In detail, the measurement system, the length of free space, and whether it is big enough for your car. Then it automatically controls the car in reverse, allowing the driver to concentrate solely to control the speed using the accelerator and brake.

In one move, car parks parallel to maximize the input space and the realignment of the car. At this stage, the maximum speed is 7 km / h. Of course, the driver always has operational control of the pedals, and can deactivate the system by turning the steering wheel or the separation of the reverse, or by clicking the appropriate button.

The second generation of parking Magic has a radar sensor on each side of the vehicle, located inside the front bumper. The radar is transmitted in the space to the right (or left) and the echoes are received by the sensor, which reconstructs a map of the area between parked cars, displays the free space and identify obstacles. At the same time, using information from the wheel speed measurement, the system can measure the length of the free trade area. The driver is informed that the parking space is allowed if the measure is equal to the length of the vehicle plus 80 inches (40 cm in the front and rear 40 cm), a total of at least 4, 60 meters. If adequate space is found, there is a beep and a message on the screen indicates if the parking maneuver can be completed in one or more stages.

"Blue & Me-Live TomTom

The new vehicle will be launched Blue & Me TomTom LIVE, "a development of the telecommunications system information automatically created as a result of a partnership between Fiat Group Automobiles and TomTom, Europe's leading portable navigation devices, operating system versatility Blue & Me

Based on Go1000 TomTom gives this unit allows you to manage - through a color touchscreen practice - telephone calls, satellite navigation and all the information you need to drive because it downloads directly from computer systems on board. It also lets you control your media player via the touch screen interface.

The new version has a new generation of capacitive touch screen and TomTom Live services such as HD Traffic, which was named the best traffic information system on the market today. Combines accurate traffic updates with real-time dynamic routing congestion, traffic jams and road closures. Guests receive complimentary use of live services for an entire year.

Special thank you to support developed with Magneti Marelli for the new Ypsilon, the "Blue & Me TomTom LIVE" is installed in the loop located on the front line to the left of the driver, so it can be powered (as integration of law LHD Right position is possible).

"Fuel Smart System"

Filling up is one of the actions that have not evolved to the same technology as the pace car. New Ypsilon is a leap forward in an innovative "Smart Fuel System, a device that replaces the traditional cap and is installed at the end of the fuel filler pipe. Designed primarily for the attention of women for customers automatically opens and closes when the pump was turned on and removed, so the supply is easier and safer by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and too full of fuel. New "Smart Fuel System" also solves the problem of "errors of supply", because it allows the gas is pumped into diesel cars.

Advanced optical blocks

As the Delta and Musa, and a few cars in other cities, the new Lancia Ypsilon is equipped with headlights and taillights developed with Magneti Marelli Automotive Lighting, which combines advanced technology with innovative design is inspired by the centuries-old tradition Lancia. LED tail light, brighter than normal bulbs, increase safety with a distinctive look. In fact, with the lights off, they seem monochromatic, but when connected to the color of the light of the tasks defined in the LED itself.

Headlights turn, is an integrated solution, "daytime running lights" (Adaptive Daytime Lamp), which automatically turns the lights page when the engine is started: this is a special meeting for the European standard, which will come into force in 2012 .

In addition, the groups before xenon light are also available, advanced technology available in very few models in the segment that provides style, technology and security.

"Music 360 ° W 500 Hi-Fi"

The 500W 360 ° Hi-Fi Music System is available on request. This absolute novelty in the segment differs from the rest because of its advanced technology and is ideal for those who want a sophisticated hi-fi that is designed and calibrated for the interior of the new Ypsilon.

In particular, the new system consists of 8 speakers (four-dome tweeters and four musical 40W 80 W woofers Neodymium mid music) and a digital 8-channel amplifier. And to make the onboard experience for its unique, the system consists of the simultaneous use of three different methods of signal processing and acoustic effects. The first (TruBass) extends the perceived low frequency range without the need for subwoofers for listeners to have the sensation of listening to a system that can reproduce deep bass and extended. The second method (Focus) raises the apparent position of sound sources at ear level. One has the feeling of listening to speakers positioned higher than they really are, while the perceived frequency response is still "natural" that "color" caused by the head of the filter is removed. Finally, the third method (3D) spatially matches the music playback, the correction of errors due to speaker placement and improved

spatial perception. The result is a more involving music, which recreates a correct stereo image, even for listeners of the axis of symmetry of the speakers.

Safety: a top-class

To ensure the protection of passengers, the new Ypsilon combines a body designed according to the latest content of active and passive safety that guarantees optimal performance in terms of security, so on top of his class.

The design and validation of this aspect of performance was achieved in an almost entirely virtual, with more than 20,000 hours of mathematical models. The final tests involved and experimental until more than 80 crash tests, 100 tests on a slide Hyge and about 100 tests on components and subsystems. These figures confirm the company's commitment to the new Ypsilon one of the safest cars in the segment.

More specifically, the load path connected to the third pillar of the vehicle to ensure a homogeneous structure in front of the vehicle's capacity to adapt to the harmful reactions whatever the type of frontal impact barrier / vehicle was hit, because it increases the potential for absorption of energy within 'front end of the vehicle and reduces both the inertial forces and the passenger compartment intrusion in order to ensure optimal protection of passengers in a greater impact on severity. In addition, elements of energy absorption are positioned in front of the third load path (of special plastic that has a lot of energy efficiency of absorption) to be the vehicle to minimize damage to low-speed bumper impact and support reduce knee dangerous turn when the car hits a pedestrian.

Then, the new Lancia Ypsilon offers up to 6 airbags (front, side and window bags), front seatbelts with pretensioners and load limiters and two rear seat belts three points. Special attention was paid also to the seats. Both front and rear seats are equipped with a slip (which prevents the body from sliding under the belt), the front seats have anti-whiplash (which limits the range of natural journey neck starts immediately after impact, This reduces the risk of whiplash in rear-end collision case) as standard across the range, and ISOFIX child seat in the rear.

Security level has been designed by engineers and the Fiat Safety Centre, after considering all the possible accident: frontal and side impacts, overturning, cumulative, and collisions with pedestrians. different speeds, which have an impact may also be considered, as well as various obstacles and different people with very different physical characteristics.

Tuning: the luxury of choosing

Anyone can find the new Ypsilon, which best suits their needs and tastes. Suffice it to say that there are over 600 possible customizations for the "mini-flagship, which is created by combining 16 body shades, 4 of which are two colors, three internal levels (Silver, Gold and Platinum), 6 finishes Internal and 3 types of alloy wheels.

In particular, the silver trim level control provides remote opening doors, adjustable steering wheel, electric front windows, 50/50 split rear, driver seat height adjustment, 15 "steel wheels," technical fabric with electro Interior -welded joints, the creation of radio and heated rear window. In terms of safety, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control with ASR and a Hill Holder, front airbags and side, and the ISOFIX standard fasteners are available. In addition to this wealth of material, the Gold version adds. manual air conditioning, radio with CD and MP3 player, electric mirrors, steering wheel and bellows leather trimmed shift knob, saddlery and Comfort Pack Castiglio Finally, Platinum offers the added value of setting electric rear windows, fog lights, alloy wheels 15 "rear headrests and leather seats.

Moreover, they are eager to change the New Ypsilon and make it a true luxury, a lot of good, high quality accessories. Not only accessories that offers style and meticulous attention to detail, but also fit under the car and the unmistakable Lancia style of property purely technical, stylistic and mechanical properties of a new car. From exclusive 16 "wheels, alloy wheels, side skirts and tinted headlights illuminated scuff black logo," Blue & Me, the TomTom LIVE and Accessory Pack.

The interior trim levels of the new Lancia Ypsilon deserve careful consideration. There are three different levels, characterized by different colors, materials and styles: Customers can choose from a dynamic, sporty version or versions that are more affluent reworked in a contemporary vein and express the strong personality of the car. The first level, silver trim, is ideal for young audiences: the interior is characterized by a lining with a dynamic spirit.
