Geneva 2011 – Lancia Flavia –

Lancia Flavia

Another Lancia model, another rebadged Chrysler. First, it was the Lancia Thema (aka Chrysler 300) and now we’re going to talk about the Flavia (aka Chrysler 200). The Italian automaker said that the car will go into production within the next six months as both a saloon and a convertible model.

The Flavia comes with a very conservative Bright Black finish with polished metal features on the front bumper, side mirrors, door handles and on the boot lid. Inside it has a 2+2 configuration and dark leather is the predominant material. The convertible version will feature a White Zenith exterior color offset by the Black Lava roof and complemented by the Ivory White leather interior with beige Alcantara and black accents.

According to the press release, both models measure about 4.5 meters long and have seats that “recline into chaise-lounges”. The Flavia rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels, way better in comparison to its American sibling that has steel wheels. Other differences from the Chrysler 200 include the fog lamps; Lancia’s signature grille and the LED rear lightning.

The car will come with electronic traction control, electronic stability control, six airbags, multi-function steering wheel and Bluetooth.

Lancia said that the model will hit the European showrooms later on this year and at first it will be offered with Fiat’s MultiJet 1.6-liter engine that produces 105 hp (106 PS / 77 kW) which will be linked to an automatic gearbox. Later on, more engines and a manual transmission will be introduced.

Just like I’ve said about the Thema, I think that Flavia will not be a very popular model among customers.
