Trawling through AOL they have a feature shown as best 20 small cars and feature the Ypsilon as well as Fiat Grande Punto. Grin
Needless to say there is the usual digs at the end. But as they recently damned the Dedra Roll Eyes it least it's a step in the right direction.


 9 of 10Lancia Ypsilon (2003 - )
The only reason that Lancia still exists (and will return to the UK in a couple of years time). The Ypsilon is the ultimate four-wheeled fashion accessory for the girl about town (the town in question being Milan or possibly Barcelona). Stylish, nicely equipped (lots of leather and alacantara for the interior) and pleasant to drive in an undemanding sort of way, it shows that Lancia could have a future. Shame it is one of the only two or three successful models Lancia has come up with in the 38 years that it has owned been owned by Fiat.

As a girl about town, I wholeheartedly agree.

An alarming image has popped into my head as I realised that Peter Baker used to drive an Ypsi.  Peter Baker as 'stylish girl about town'...!! Lips Sealed

Of course this implied femininity only applies to the post 2003 Ypsi, the one prior to that is an overt paragon of machismo  Wink

Off to play some rugger.....
