An elegant car with a sporty feel. Reliable too!


Geometry needed to be checked in order to counter uneven tyre wear. Fixed under guarantee.

General Comments:

A lovely car. Smooth, sporty, elegant, comfortable and very reliable up to now. It seems very solidly built and no squeaks have appeared after nearly 30000km and two years of ownership. Economy is averaging about 9.4L/100mks and this includes high speed drives in Germany.

The Bose sound system (7 speakers) and 6 CD changer is excellent and the GPS/built in telephone work really well.

This is by far the best Lancia built I have owned. This is my third one after a Prisma and a Thema.

I would recommend it to anyone. A colleague drives the 2.4 Diesel and is so happy with it and intends to replace it with the latest Intensa version soon.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
