The 2021 Lancia Ypsilon is a supermini manufactured and marketed by Lancia, now in its third generation, and — as of 2021 — the marque’s only model. The Ypsilon was released in 1995, as a larger and more expensive replacement to the Y10. Between 1995 and 2005 Lancia produced more than 870,000 Ypsilons in the Melfi plant in the Potenza region. The third generation Ypsilon, sharing its platform with the Fiat 500, was marketed also as the Chrysler Ypsilon in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Japan. Fiat Group discontinued the Chrysler variant in 2017, having marketed 2,000 units in 2014. It is also no longer sold in Japan, with the discontinuation of both the Lancia Voyager and Lancia Thema branding on Chrysler-built vehicles in 2015. It is currently only available in the Italian market. Perfect combination of elegance and manoeuvrability on four wheels, a car in which form and functionality go hand-in-hand, and an anti-conformist model which boldly expresses its own personality: these are the features which have made Ypsilon a proven success for four generations with 2.7 million sold across Europe.
In 2021 Stellantis gave the car a grille with vertical strips according to the Lancia tradition and updated headlights with new daytime running lights. It was also announced that the maker will now be considered a premium car maker and will be part of the Stellantis group’s “premium pool” sharing parts with DS and Alfa Romeo. Looking instantly recognizable, the model features a revised grille with vertical accents and a more prominent satin chrome surround. It’s flanked by updated headlights with slender LED daytime running lights. The modest updates continue in the cabin as buyers will find a new 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The model also features a newly standard cabin air filter that captures over 99% of allergens and reduces the proliferation of mold and bacteria by over 98%. Additional changes are limited, but the Ypsilon adopts a ‘smiling’ lower air intake and a revised color palette. The latter features a new Elegant Blue option which is billed a reinterpretation of Lancia Blue.
Today the baton passes to the New Lancia Ypsilon that, to continue to be one of the cars preferred by women, undergoes a renewal becoming even more elegant and functional as well as offering precise details, refined materials, and an attention to design typical of Lancia, and apparent in all three of the versions available at the time of launch: Silver, Gold and Platinum. On sale from September 2015 across the main European markets, the New Ypsilon can be equipped with two petrol engines, a 69 hp 1.2 with manual gearbox or 85 hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo combined with semi-automatic transmission. Alternatively, the 95 hp 1.3 Multijet diesel, eco-friendly and fuel-efficient (just 95 g/km of CO2), express the best of today’s engineering in the field of small turbo diesels. Completing the range are the bi-fuel Ecochic versions for cost-effective running and high range: the 69 hp 1.2 LPG/Petrol (110 g/km of CO2) and the 80 hp two-cylinder 0.9 TwinAir Turbo Methane/Petrol which guarantees low emissions (86 g/km of CO2) and remarkably brilliant performance. The engine types, all Euro 6, are high performing but offer contained consumption and are environmentally friendly thanks to the Ecochic Turbo Methane and LPG range.
