Update – More information and spy shots added
The third generation Lancia Ypsilon has been in the market since 2011 and is due for a mid-life facelift. The restyled Ypsilon is currently being tested on the European streets, as seen in the new spy shots released by Passione Auto Italiane.
The test mule of the 2016 Lancia Ypsilon partially reveals new upper grille with what seems to be chrome surrounds, while new alloy wheels are also visible. According to an earlier report from the same blog, facelifted model will be launched in the second half of this year.
The Ypsilon, Lancia’s last surviving car (besides the Voyager), is sold under the Chrysler brand in the UK, Ireland and Japan. In the UK and Ireland, the facelifted third generation model would probably be the last one to be on sale, as by the time fourth generation arrives (possibly in 2017 or later) Chrysler would have pulled out of these markets.
A fresh report from CarPassion.it reveals more information and shares a new batch of spy shots, including that of the interior. It says that the facelifted model will get new LED headlights and a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system. This report suggests that the engine options will probably remain the same but there are chances that the rumours of a 135 hp 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged petrol engine being offered on the facelifted model could become true.
