It looks like the Lancia-badged Chrysler 200s will be badged Flavia. Elsewhere it appears that the 300 will be called Thema and the Grand Voyager will be called Voyager. They'll be revealed at Geneva.

I'm inclined to see whether they are any good first...

Yuk!  A 300C with a new Delta front slapped on badly, I would like to see the real thing first.

Unlike the rather silly 300C with a Delta front, this is the real new 300, on which the Thema is likely to be based.  Might actually work...

I fail to see how it will work.

Lancia stands for quality and innovation. Chrysler stands for cheap Detroit rubbish. The two do not mix when Chrysler take the lead.

Of course, on here we are aware of what Lancia stands for and I suppose hold on to the pinnacle of the company's achievements. For the majority, I suppose they just want a decent vehicle. But what Lancia means to the average Joe, if anything at all, I don't know.

Who would have thought a Thesis was the last of the "real" Lancias!!

I think the actual 300c is alot better than the photoshop beast featured above. I really like the rear lights.

Here's Olivier Francois launching the new car at Detroit, that will, bar a few detail changes, be the Thema

At 7:00 he mentions all wheel drive, do you think they'll dig out the integrale badge?

In no way can I see Lancia being a viable brand in the near future after looking at those heaps!

Typical Marketing man, He sounds as convincing about the 300c as he did when announcing the New Delta to us at the Bicaretti Museum in Turin 2006, although he's a bit poddgier than he was then Cheesy

The photoshop '300' is appalling but even the 'new' version is no great shakes - is it just a facelift??

I think it's going to be a case of the Italian made cars being good and the American ones bad, whatever the spin. The trouble is the whole range will be tarred with the same brush. At least in the UK the Lancia name won't be junked again just after it has recovered. Most here will consider all the cars to be the same old Chryslers.

Hi

I thought I would add my two penny worth of comment to this posting as I feel this Chrysler bashing is somewhat onesided up to now.

First I have to say that I have no real interest in buying a Lancia badged Chrysler just because it is badged that way, or any other badged engineered car just for the name, I always buy my (newer) cars for their function to suit what I need them for. My interest in Lancia is for the older cars (up to Beta).

This was the reason for buying the Chrysler Grand Voyager nearly 6 years ago. At the time (and still) it remains the most versatile people carrier in its class (in my opinion of course) with many interesting engineering features, most notable are the seats which do not need to be removed, but are stored in the floor leaving a flat load area which is enormous. It has also been extremely reliable and cheap to run over its 75K miles since new.

Peter,
I have nothing agaignst Chryler Per Se, as it happens I like the 300, The Viper was great and many of the their cars were innovative, but they have also had some right dogs that haven't even been liked in the USA, I had a look at the youtube videos and it seems from some of these are not exactly keen on the current Sebring, but I think that a cross of a 300 with Lancia, still leaves it a Chrysler not a Lancia, whereas at least the Chrysler version of the new Delta is a Lancia.
