The Lancia Musa is a mini MPV marketed by Lancia, the premium marque of Italian automaker Fiat. It is largely based on the Fiat Idea, with which it shares most of the components, but is differentiated by different front and rear ends, as well as interior elements and equipment. Both the Idea and the Musa have been in production since 2004 and are based on the Project 188 platform, originally used for the second-generation Fiat Punto.

The Musa's front and rear end styling is visually very similar to that of the technically related Lancia Ypsilon, with which it shares the headlights. The interior is appointed in luxurious materials, such as Alcantara or leather (dependent on specification), as well as chrome details. The Musa is not offered with the base 1.2 engine from the Idea, but features an interesting option of Dolce Far Niente (D.F.N.) semi-automatic transmissions for all engines except the 8-valve version of the 1.4 FIRE.

Evolution

The Musa's evolution is available from October 2007 in Lancia dealers, with larger boot and the new Lancia logo, bigger and clear; innovative optionals as the Blue&Me (available bluetooth telephone connection and USB door for mp3 files), new body colours and equipment and a VIP treatment.
