Lancia SUV Reviews

Vicenzo Lancia founded this Italian automobile line back in 1906, which later merged with the Fiat Group in 1969. Lancia is a name that has long been associated with distinctive styling. In 2009, the Lancia and Fiat names were forced to merge once again to stay afloat in the volatile automotive industry, so they collaborated with Chrysler. This would allow them to reach a larger audience and quite honesty, this was probably the smartest thing they could have done. In 2011, the Voyager was unveiled and welcomed with open arms. Based on the very popular Chrysler Town and County, this SUV is often called the Chrysler Grand Voyager in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Lancia offers two engines in its Voyager. The first is a 2.8 CRD diesel engine that generates 163 horsepower, and is incredibly fuel efficient. The second is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 287 horsepower, and is designed thoughtfully with performance in mind.

For 2013, Voyager’s electric tailgate has been fully redesigned. It is also important to note that this is more of a minivan than a sport utility vehicle, and its sliding side door has been updated as well, with a system that can detect obstacles.

There is an abundance of passenger and cargo room in the Voyager, and thanks to its Stow ‘n Go® design, there are multiple configurations that the passenger cabin can be manipulated into.

As far as comfort goes, an automatic three-zone climate control allows all passengers to achieve optimal comfort with a second row independent control unit. There is also an entertainment system available with dual LCD screens to keep rear seat passengers entertained, which is a welcome feature for those with children.

Voyager is available in a couple of different trims. The Gold launch trim blends fine craftsmanship with the perfect amount of technology. Elegant 17-inch alloy wheels decorate the outside, while the supple leather steering wheel and seats are both heated for those cold morning drives to work. Gold offers countless other features as well, including fog lights, sliding electric doors, parking sensors, audio controls on the steering wheel, MP3 playback capabilities and Uconnect Bluetooth® system.

Those looking for all the bells and whistles will be charmed by the Platinum trim. This gives you everything that the Gold trim does plus a 6.5-inch touchscreen navigation system, ParkView™ reversing camera, keyless entry, adjustable lumbar passenger seat, driver seat memory controls, rain sensors, the Stow ‘ n Go® system in both rear seats, adjustable pedal unit and upgraded nine-speaker sound system.

Those looking for the convenience and cargo space of a small crossover, but in car form will want to also check out the 2013 Lancia Musa. You may not be able to go off-road or plunge through mud and snow like an SUV, but it has a lot to offer.

Musa comes with your choice of three different engines and Diva and Oro trims. Diva gives you antilock brakes, painted bumpers, cool ice-chrome rims, titanium glass fabric and remote control locking. Oro offers sophisticated elegance with pinstripe fabric, 15-inch alloy wheels, electric heated mirrors, CD player and a sliding rear seat.
