A true discredit to the Flavia nameplate... It'll be interesting to see how they sell.

From the peak of engineering elegance to the seventh chamber of hell. Tragic.

I don't like it either, but the way I see it, it's a small wonder they're still alive today when so many others have been forced to give up lately. They haven't really been the Lancia of yesteryear for quite some time. At least the name soldiers on, so maybe there's hope for a new Stratos in the distant future.

Yes,in one sense it is completely wrong. However, considering how minute Lancia is in the current marketplace, badge engineering allows some new models at a fraction of development/engineering costs.

Tragic. Although it seems to me like the 200 had been designed to be a Lancia from the start. It was soft, unlike the 300, and looks somewhat like the old Ypsilon.

I wonder if the future 200/Flavia will be designed mostly in Italy or the US.

The aforementioned Ypsilon lives on, being completely Lancia and even having the Chrysler name in the UK.
