The next car on the catwalk in Geneva is the new Thesis 2006 that combines sportiness and elegance to produce unique, exclusive styling. On the outside, the car's refined metallic grey paintwork sets off the lines of the Lancia flagship beautifully. And the design of the 18' ray effect alloys is very eye-catching, highlighting the sporty impression of this particular version.
The same impression is repeated on the inside, which is furnished with new Frau® red leather upholstery with coordinated details.
The original Thesis 2006 is on exactly the same wavelength as the Lancia flagship, a luxury saloon that captures the attention of elite motorists with its elegance and cutting-edge technology. This is a particular segment of the market with a small number of models where the most important carmakers concentrate the best automotive technology on the market today. For this reason the Thesis 2006 is equipped with the new 2.4 Multijet 20-valve engine which, combined with a self-adaptive sequential 5-speed automatic transmission, delivers 185 bhp at 4000 rpm and peak torque of 330 Nm at 1500 rpm.
What is more, with this power pack the car reaches a top speed of 225 km/h and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 10.2 seconds. Of course the car exhibited on the Lancia stand is equipped with all the strong points that the Thesis offers, from the lavish array of standard safety equipment (ABS with EBD, ESP complete with ASR, 8 airbags) to the luxurious, large, protective passenger compartment, which features the sophisticated Connect Nav+ infotelematic system, a Bose Hi-Fi system, multi-zone automatic climate control and Comfort front seats (ventilated, heated and adaptive, with built-in squab and cushion massage), which are the state of the art in terms of comfort and ergonomics.
The car is also equipped with an anti-lift volumetric antitheft system with alarm, a television and parking sensors.Source - FIAT AUTO S.p.A.
