Lancia has recently presented, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Flavia Cabrio and the Thema AWD.
The new Lancia Flavia Cabrio can be described only as the result as Fiat and Chrysler collaborating in order to improve their models. The Lancia Flavia Cabrio is actually a production version and future owners of the model will be able to get their hands on it starting from this month, when the vehicle has been scheduled to hit the European showrooms. The rebadged Chrysler 200 Convertible will be powered, at first, by a 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 175 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 225 Nm. The unit is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. In Italy, the Lancia Flavia Cabrio will be offered with this single engine and in a single trim level, which will be pretty generous to offer features like the alloy wheels, six-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system, navigation, adaptive headlights, electric mirrors, heated mirrors, heated seats, electrically operated roof, automatic climate control, leather interior and ESP.
Besides the Lancia Flavia Cabrio, the company’s stand at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show also hosted the new Thema AWD (all-wheel drive), which is powered by Chrysler’s 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar unit, developing a total output of 286 horsepower, mated to the e-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. The new Lancia Thema AWD will be offered in Europe starting this autumn in two trim levels, Platinum and Executive. More details about it will be announced close to its launch.
