Three universes, three elaborate nuances to celebrate the aesthetic preciosity of an unsuspectable icon: the only car able today to boast the Lancia logo and Italy’s second best-selling car in 2016 and 2017, the Ypsilon is indulging in a subtle renewal with three variants. Model year 2018 therefore proposes the classic Elefantino blue, Gold and Platinum trim levels, revised (only) in a handful of details, to capture fashionista attention.
On the entry version the matte black grille is given a touch of modernity by an almost imperceptible surface texture, in addition to which there are dark wheel covers and interiors reinterpreted with a textile motif inspired by the letter Y and reproduced at random. For the Gold trim, embellished with chrome handles and glossy black rear-view mirrors, we have specially lined upholstery crossed by gold or blue threads, linked here too to the name of the car and applied differently on each seat. The 15-inch alloy wheels feature a complete restyling.
On the Platinum range-topper, the only one with grille and mirrors in shiny steel colour, we have Alcantara in blue or dove colour in the cockpit and new chrome-plated external profiling on the doors.
For all of them, two sophisticated new body colours: Pure Gold and Emerald Green. Just minor details? Maybe. But they can be enough to enable the Ypsilon to remain discreetly and firmly at the top of Italian preferences.
