Geneva '08 Preview

New Lancia Delta will be shown at the Geneva Show. I'm interested in American's reactions to this, as it is quite unique IMO. Autoblog entry.

Yep, I've had a soft spot for Lancias since the Ferrari V8-engined Thema 8.32 (which was not much bigger than this). The Ypsilon in particular I really like.

I'm not a big fan at all. It's face reminds me of a finch.

it's sharp, edge-y... i wouldn't buy it for the styling though.

One of my favourite cars when I was growing up was the Thema 8.32! :drool:

I'm not a big fan of the Ypsilon, but if this Delta is any indication, I'll like the new one due next year.

I had a soft spot for Lancia too and it is the 8.32 which is fascination part.

However, lately their design seems to be more French than Italian. The front is little bit Jag, Chinese and French influence. The center stack for the Delta appears to be ordinary gives me vibe of S Type and previous generation Avalon.

it's no Aztec, but doesn't light my fire.

If I'm going to go for a plebian italian automaker of questionable reliability, I'll pick Alfa Romeo.

it's gorgeous, alluring....it looks purposeful, strong, every line makes it so, a bold, necessary impact. i think one day we Americans [in general] will understand what makes these cars [hatchbacks specifically, Euro cars in general] so special is the fluidity of it all, it all fits in and looks right. It's oddly ironic that the headlights and front grille recall the Pontiac Gran Prix.

Love it! I've always kinda liked Lancias as well. What's the name of their (current, recent?) model with the kite-shaped headlights. Loved that one.

Looks nice. I loved the Lancia Thesis when it came out...

Back looks just like the Murano?

Looks more inspired by Lancia's own Thesis and Ypsilon models to me.
