After news of the first testing to be carried out on the new Lancia Ypsilon, initial spy shots are emerging prior to the debut of this little piece of luxury in 2011. This is later than Lancia originally planned, according to auto, motor und sport, so we may as well enjoy the spy shot for the moment.
The size should remain similar to that of the current model, with a big change in style being the main factor. The new Ypsilon will follow the more eccentric lines of the Delta and should distinguish itself further from the competition.
In terms of more technical changes, the focus is on reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency, and so we could be seeing the introduction of a hybrid engine, anticipated by Fiat Powertrain and planned for 2011.
