2004 Lancia Ypsilon 1.4
A very strong recommendation to test drive one if you get the chance
Nothing - yet.
Sublimely smooth performance and handling from a very solidly built car.
Gear changes have a positive and secure feel, however the clutch is a bit heavy around town.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Where I can buy a Lancia Ypsylon in the UK. I saw many Ypsylons during my trip to Italy last April, and I would like to get one for my wife.
I agree that they look great and seem to have real personality (unlike most modern mini-cars) but It's such a shame that it wasn't simply badged 'Fiat Ypsilon' and sold at a more realistic price.
Lancia is no longer a maker of fine thoroughbreds, like the Fulvia and Flaminia. Therefore it is now just a name for an ordinary little Fiat.
Other than that, I rate it highly, based on its merits.
We recently spent 3 weeks driving through central Italy in a rented Ypsilon. After we sorted out the starting sequence and reconnected a battery cable which was not properly locked down, the car was a pleasure to drive...roomy, quiet and comfortable. We picked it up with only 8 km on the odometer, so our perspective was from the standpoint of "brand new". Would love to road test one back here in the USA.
I have one with 240 000 kms... can see my post, it's been a pleasure to own one!
This is definitely one of my favorite cars!!!
