The Lancia Ypsilon is a supermini produced by the Italian automaker Lancia since 1996. It is the replacement of the Y10.

First generation (1996-2003)

The first Ypsilon was based on and shares its underpinnings with the first generation of the Fiat Punto. However, unlike its more pedestrian counterpart, the Ypsilon is available only with a three-door hatchback body. It was generation was available only with petrol engines from 1.1 L to 1.4 L. The top model 1.4 L was an old model with 12 valves, and was eventually replaced with a 16-valve 1.2 L, smaller but more powerful, with 63 kW (86 PS).

Second generation (2003-present)

An all-new version was launched in 2003, still only with a three-door body, and now based on the second Fiat Punto. The Ypsilon is Lancia's best-selling model, in spite of the fact Fiat Auto is trying to market the Lancia brand as luxury. The engine range goes from 1.2 L to 1.4 L, alongside the 1.3 Multijet Diesel, with power going from 44 kW (60 PS) to 70 kW (95 PS). The second generation has increased interior room and more equipment, including standard ABS, air conditioning and optional CD player, cruise control, alloy wheels and a sequential manual gearbox. A five-door mini MPV version of the Ypsilon is sold as the Musa.
