Lancia announced that the original Flavia Cabrio will go into production and will soon be launched in Europe. It will have the styling cues of the Chrysler 200 model. The Lancia convertible was well-received at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show where it was hailed as an excellent alternative for those who prefer a coupe but are not willing to give up the enjoyment of having an open-air car.
The Lancia Flavia Cabrio, which measures 4.9 metres in length, 1.4 meters in height, and 1.8 meters in width, is at the top of segment D.
It could carry as many as four adults and offers on-board comfort with a 276-cm wheelbase. The elegant and dynamic Flavia Cabrio features a sculpturesque front with an exceptional grille that has the Lancia logo and the original front headlights and fog lights.
The vehicle’s side panel surface is very stylish and clean and is recognizable by a sleek line that lengthens the car. It also comes with a set of 18" alloy wheels. The rear LED light cluster, along with a thin chrome-plated bar, further improves the overall elegant look.
It is reinforced even more by the atypical twin chrome-plated tailpipe and by the electrically-controlled soft top enclosed inside the hood cover integrated into the body with the third brake light at its base.
With the launch of the new Flavia, Lancia completes its range on a significant year. Lancia commenced the year marketing the five-door Ypsilon, and then went on introduce its Thema flagship and the Voyager. The Thema, Voyager and the Flavia all retain the stylistic elements of the Lancia brand while reinterpreting the Chrysler 200 Convertible model currently being introduced in Europe.
Thus, the new Flavia, the Thema and the Voyager are the results of efforts to fuse the best of the American and European worlds. They boast of the exclusivity, interior elegance and comfort typical of Lancias while featuring the dimensions, personality and performance of American cars. The launch of these models signifies the rise of a new automotive power that builds on its history and values to create a bright future.
After all, Lancia was responsible for offering successful models like the Delta and Musa while catering to different segments like Large MPV, flagship and convertible. Essentially, the new Lancia Flavia features a design that conveys exterior dynamism and elegance as well as interior refinement and innovation – as expected of the excellent Italian styling and craftsmanship that the brand has been known for in the past century.
At first glance, the new Lancia Flavia exudes a dynamic and elegant appearance, thanks to its next-generation soft top and to its aerodynamically sculpted front end that’s seemed to be shape by the wind. The front end of the new Lancia Flavia is distinguished by a unique grille that accommodates the Lancia logo and flanked by original front headlights and fog lights. When viewed from the sides, the Flavia reveals neat and clean surfaces with a sleek line that visually lengthens the car.
Its appearance on the sides is accentuated by 18-inch alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the rear end of the new Flavia features elegant LED light clusters linked by a thin chrome-plated bar that highlights the original design. Further highlight is provided for by the distinct chrome-plated tailpipe and by its electrically controlled black soft top enclosed within the soft top cover built into the body of the Flavia with the third brake light at its base.
At launch, the new Flavia is available in Bright White and Mineral Grey exterior colors and in black and two-tone black and white interior shades. Soft top is black only at launch. After some time, the Lancia Flavia could also be availed in Deep Cherry, Silver, Black and Blackberry exterior colors and in beige soft top.
