New Voyager, an icon of the art of travel
A true icon of the MPV category wîth 27 years on the road and thirteen million units sold in 120 countries around the world, today the American model 'marries' Italian style, metamorphosing into an exclusive top-range MPV in which Chrysler's journey expertise joins forces wîth that of Lancia in driving pleasure, the art of attention to detail and Italian design. The result is the Lancia new Voyager, the best Voyager ever which picks up where the Lancia Phedra left off to write another page in the history of this category. Style
Available in three trim levels (Silver, Gold and Platinum) and two engine versions (the powerful, Euro 5-compliant 283 HP 3.6 petrol engine and the lively 163 HP 2.8 diesel, also Euro 5-compliant), Lancia new Voyager unveils a brand new front end featuring the grille emblazoned wîth the Lancia logo, wraparound front and rear fascias, light clusters wîth LED lights, large headlights wîth built-in fog lights in the front bumper. In addition, the sides sport the typical wheel arch design, while the slim pillars coupled wîth large windows guarantee excellent visibility. The car is equipped wîth rails and crossbars on the roof while the tailgate has been redesigned wîth a modern, functional look in order to optimise access to the interior. The original rear spoiler provides the finishing touch for the new MPV.
The benchmark in the §egmènt of large MPVs, Lancia new Voyager is 5.14 metres long, 1.99 m wide, 1.72 m high on a wheelbase of approx. 3.1 metres. This impressive size is matched by a spacious, refined passenger compartment distinguished by quality materials and attention to detail, characteristics that have always been synonymous wîth Lancia. For example, depending on the trim level, the model comes wîth seats upholstered in fine fabric or top quality Nappa leather.
In an ideal world, space is once again an element that man can mould to suit his needs through a few simple, intuitive gestures: Stow ‘n Go® is the exclusive system which frees up all the space needed for passengers and their luggage, without having to remove any seats. This innovative configuration system includes seats which can be folded away into the floor panel to transform, wîth the utmost ease, the five comfortable seats of the second and third row into an ample load surface, suitable for all travel and work requirements. Also, if the seats are kept upright, the practical compartments in the floor panel can be used for storage. And again wîth maximum versatility in mind, the new car features sliding doors and tailgate (electrically operated) wîth a safety system for the detection of the presence of obstacles during closure (in this case, doors are opened again to avoid unfortunate accidents). On-board technology
Synonymous wîth uncompromising choice (for the driver, but also for those who have the pleasure of being a passenger), Lancia new Voyager features the sophisticated Úconnect® Tunes multimedia entertainment system wîth Radio/CD/DVD/MP3/WMA, ÚSB port, AÚX input, 30GB hard-disk, touchscreen, plus a Bluetooth®-ready ÚConnect® device wîth voice commands and microphone built into the rear view mirror. Also included is the ParkView™ system wîth rear camera to view obstacles during parking. Available on request is ÚConnect® GPS, which adds satellite navigation wîth 2D and 3D bird's eye view maps and progressive route guidance.
The experience of travelling on board the Lancia new Voyager is completed by a nine-speaker audio system wîth subwoofer and 506 watt amplifier as well as an entertainment system wîth dual LCD screen DVD player for passengers in the middle and back rows. This particular deviceenables reproduction of two different media at the same time - chosen from many sources (radio, hard disk, AÚX input, ÚSB port, two RGB inputs and two DVD players) – on two 9' LCD screens complete wîth remote control and two-channel wireless headphones. In addition, adjustable LED roof lights, inspired by aeronautical design, enable light to be directed only where required.Engines
Design and comfort are not the only fortes of the Lancia new Voyager. Sure enough, the model proposes two Euro5-compliant engines which enhance the dimension of travel, wîth engineering and performance coming together to deliver comfort beyond compare. The lively Diesel 2.8 CRD wîth particulate filter as standard delivers 163 HP and a torque of 360Nm, keeping fuel consumption low (8.4 l/100 km in the combined cycle), which translates into considerable journey range, while CO2 emissions are 227 g/km.
The second engine in the range is the 3.605 HP petrol model wîth 6 cylinders configured in a 60° V, which delivers 283 HP. Thrilling performance wîth fuel consumption of 12.3 l/100 km in the combined cycle. Note that the 283 HP 3.6 is combined wîth a 6-speed automatic gearbox wîth torque converter: this transmission offers closer spacing between the gears, limiting engine speed changes between the different transmission ratios and guaranteeing smoother engagements suited to all driving situations.Safety
new Voyager is also at the cutting edge when it comes to safety features, as can be seen from the next-generation front airbags (both multi-stage), side window bags on the three rows of seats and side bags for shoulder and chest in the front row. Also available is an assisted parking system wîth the option of integrating a 'rear back-up camera' wîth a screen showing a precise view of what is behind the vehicle during reversing.Source - Lancia
