Lancia Cars

Italian Fashion City Cars by Lancia Delta

Lancia is an Italian car manufacturer that makes city cars with distinctive Italian styling. The only model still in production is the Ypsilon, but many past models are also available as used cars on eBay. The Lancia Musa, Phedra, Thesis, and the classic Integrale are all past models that you can search for on eBay.

The first generation of the Lancia Delta Integrale

The first version of the Lancia Delta Integrale that was unveiled in 1986 was a four-wheel-drive hatchback with five doors. Powered by a 2.0L engine, it was equipped with a turbocharger. This model can be over-boosted to produce more torque for short periods.

Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione releases

The Evoluzione and Evoluzione II models were produced in 1991 and 1993, respectively. Both models have 16 valves instead of 8 in the first edition as well as an increased power output to over 200PS. The last version of the Lancia Delta Integrale was the facelift version of the Evoluzione II which came with enhanced styling on the outside and improved comfort features on the inside. However, air conditioning was optional at the time of the first release, so you pay attention to your preferred model's list of features, especially if you enjoy driving in summer.

What additional features do Lancia cars have?

Many of Lancia’s cars are rebadged as Chrysler vehicles in the North American Market and they share platforms with its parent company - Fiat. Hence, later models share the same reliability and equipment as these larger brands. This might include a Bose Hi-Fi radio and CD player with wheel-mounted controls, an advanced ESC system and SDC suspension, as well as a semi-automatic parking assistant. Check the eBay listing carefully to ensure that your preferred model has the features that you need.

How practical are Lancia cars for everyday use?

Lancia makes several models of practical city cars both for single drivers and those with families:

  • The Lancia Ypsilon has been in production since 1995 and is a compact 5-door hatchback designed to be an urban car. It is perfect for a single driver or for carrying one passenger but is also able to seat five if required. With over 240 litres of boot space, the rear seats can be folded down in a 60/40 format for cargo flexibility.
  • The Lancia Phedra minivan is suited for larger families as it can fit a family of seven comfortably. An unfolded wheelchair can fit in the back when the rear seats are folded down.
