Behold, the first official photos of the fourth-generation Lancia Ypsilon have graced the automotive stage. This B-class hatchback is set to make its grand debut on the 14th of February, marking the inception of an entirely new family of models from the renowned Italian brand.
The all-new Lancia Ypsilon positions itself as a premium contender in the B-class arena, vying for attention alongside the likes of the Audi A1 and the Mini Cooper.
The design of the Lancia Ypsilon takes a daring departure from the norm, with a particularly avant-garde front end reminiscent of the Lancia Pu + Ra HPE concept car. Rear door handles discreetly nestled in the roof pillars and attention-grabbing large round taillights add to its distinctive charm.
Stepping inside, the front panel proudly hosts two displays, with a notable circular shelf featuring wireless charging for smartphones. The Limited Edition Cassina version, captured in photos, showcases a velour-clad interior. A limited run of 1906 units is planned, a nod to the founding year of Lancia, 1906.
The 2024 Lancia Ypsilon hatchback shares familial ties with the Peugeot 208, Opel Corsa, and Jeep Avenger, as it rides on the Stellantis CMP platform and utilizes powertrains from the same stable.
The electric variant of the Lancia Ypsilon boasts a robust 156-horsepower engine and a 54 kWh battery, offering a range of 403 km. Additionally, a hybrid option featuring a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and a 48-volt “mild” hybrid system will be on offer.
