Interestingly Alan, this car when viewed on Kings website is described as a "Lancia" Delta although the pictures dictate otherwise and yes the grille and badging look awful. However prices start new at 16695 and include 5 years servicing which is great value.

Incidently whilst in France recently, I checked up on Delta & Ypsilon prices there and are as follows:-

Ypsilon 1.2 (69) Silver E12,500 - 1.3Multijet (95) Platinum E20,100. These equate at current exchange rate (1.14) as 10,965 to 17,632.
Delta 1.4T-jet Impulsive E21,000- 1.9 Multijet (190) Executive E39,700. (18,421 to 34,825).

The top Delta (which now replaces the previous Platino and now adds the kitchen sink) is more expensive than any Giulietta, A3 Sportback (not S3/RS3), New 1-series and over E8,000 more than a Golf 170GTD which is a tall ask despite being a great car. Second hand prices are doing well though.

I notice on Chryslers website that this engine is not advertised, it will be interesting what the top trim lists at.

Duncan, lets pay a visit to the dealer in Isleworth next month and perhaps book a test drive... maybe go in a real Delta?

The dealer in Wolverhampton has finally got two white and black Deltas on display, one outside, prominently parked on a grass verge adjacent to the very busy Penn Island. First time I've seen one in white "on the road" and it looks very nice. Interestingly, amongst all the Mercs and smarts in the car park today there were 2 Alfas, a new Giulietta and a 159 Sportwagon, both Fiat fleet cars according to their reg plates, so Fiat HQ staff? - looks like they may be getting on with some pre-launch training.

Just seen an advert for the Chrysler Delta on ITV.  It states prices from 16,650.

Don't know if this has posted before, but if not the Delta has finally appeared on Chrysler's UK site...

Re: TV Ad. You beat me to it Stuart and interestingly the Exclusive (Executive in Italy) top of the range model with the leather dash was under 28k, which is a lot cheaper than in Europe!

This 249 per month and 5 years free servicing deal is for the entry level model and runs until 30 Sept. Bet there's more deals to follow.

Wonder if you can order through the UK Chrysler dealer network but request Lancia badging and Lancia on the V5?

I know I'm stating the obvious here, but it's such a shame that they've badged the car a Chrysler in the UK. I got half excited tonight when that ad came on but the American accent and Chrysler badging soon brought me back down to earth!

Missed that Lancia bit Paul. Interestingly, when I was at the Delta launch and spoke to Olivier Francois for 5 or so minutes he asked me what my opinion was on a UK launch with 5 years free servicing and warranty option. Of course I said it would be foolhardy not to offer this as it would show that Lancia were putting their money where their mouth is, so to speak and it would only be keeping up with the Koreans.  Wink

And there was me thinking I was doing my bit for Lancia drivers in the UK!  Sad

Totally agree, just looked through the pdf brochure and the car looks fantastic apart from the grille. Can't see people buying it though in front of the German opposition with a Chrysler badge on it. It will be interesting to see how it fares sales wise and how the residuals hold up.

It seems to me that overall the Lancia re-launch in RHD markets would have made more sense, but again could they have demanded these sort of prices in the UK etc. even with the right badge on the nose? At the end of the day Lancia have become a convenient crutch lending small car quality to fill the gap in the Chrysler lineup left by the withdrawal of the dire Dodge range.

I think that, it's more likely, that they are afraid
the Lancia badge will just dredge up the old,
"they rust don't they" which, obviously, did not
tarnish the reputation of Chrysler in the same
way.

It's all about depreciation and discounts. Give it six months and watch the prices fall. But beware, in two years these cars will be lined up at 9,000 a piece. Audi, BMW and Mercedes rule for quality. Italian/American cars will always be 'pile em high and sell em cheap'. Logic says hang around.

Probably right Geoff but Chrysler aren't exactly a shining example of how to match cars to the UK market up to now, they also have a pretty poor reputation here. Roll Eyes

Has everyone seen this already? http://www.lanciachryslerexperience.com

Shame I can't hear a word Francois is saying although I probably wouldn't like it anyway!
