2015 Lancia Ypsilon
The 2015 Lancia Ypsilon is the only vehicle left in the Lancia portfolio. They stopped the production of their The model which was basically a rebadged Chrysler 300 and they stopped producing the rather classy Delta. However, the Lancia Ypsilon remained a strong seller in Italy and they’ve even created one more version of it which will be available in Italy (and maybe in some other European markets).
Named the 2015 Lancia Ypsilon Elle, the new car is distinguished by the special colors, more upmarket interior equipment and materials and a looks that is clearly aimed at women. And we are not sexist or anything like that; Lanca published a press release in which they state that the Ypsilon Elle is a car that is “positively packed with glamour and elegance aimed at sophisticated and refined women, which pretty much sums up the ELLE readers.” That said, it is obvious that Lancia developed this car with women in mind.
So, the introduction of three new colors called GLAM Powder Pink, Glaceé White and Glam Powder Pink / Vulcano Black is one of great assets to the new gen vehicle. We have to admit that the 2015 Lancia Ypsilon really looks stunning, classy, upmarket and even expensive. Lancia has been trying to build that kind of image for the Ypsilon for long time and it is clear that they’ve succeeded. More important than the available colors is the newly upholstered interior. Despite being based on a small Fiat Punto, the 2015 Lancia Ypsilon received reworked cabin with such upmarket features as leather, Alcantara, brushed chrome inserts and head rests received a special Elle logo on them. The combination of different colors and integration of wonderfully executed stitching on every part of the interior really made this Lancia a car that stands out. It cannot be personalized like Mini Cooper, Opel Adam or Fiat 500, but the top-notch style found inside and created by the best designers in the business promise a level of elegance and refinement unmatched by any other similarly dimensioned vehicle.
The technology remained much the same. The 2015 Lancia Ypsilon Elle, fortunately, received 16-inch alloy wheels decorated with Glam Powder Pink color (these wheels can be purchased with the Glam Powder Pink / Vulcano Black colored car also). The rest remained the same. That means that the 2015 Lancia Ypsilon ELLE is available with one of three different engines. The least powerful one is a 1,2 liter petrol unit developing 69 HP, while the most powerful unit is a diesel. 1,3-liter MultiJet II developing 95 HP and it is available with a manual or robotized automatic transmission. Also, a 0,9 liter two cylinder turbocharged unit developing 85 HP is available.
All in all, the Lancia Ypsilon is ready to tackle 2015 and it will be available only in this ELLE livery. We guess that 2015 Lancia Ypsilon will bring back some of their vehicles till the end of the decade and the only vehicle that will keep the brand long enough is this Ypsilon.
