We have owned the car for more than 2 months and drove 2500 kilometers. It is that kind of car that grows on you. It is actually quite spacious inside. I very much admire Lancia for making such a car. It is not for everyone tastes. Basic 1.2V8 Fire engine is quite and exceptionally economical (50mpg in city cycle). I believe it was sacked due to Twinair engine and positioning. Twinair needs to get used to. We opted for basic 1.2v8 due to offer on a new car from the dealership. It is a very rare car here. It is said to be supermini. In fact it is slightly bigger than Panda. As such it is not as spacious as tooday's supermini, it is more a bigger city car. We used it for our weekend crosscountry skiing trip. It was our family of three, our dog, skis etc. It handled it without any problem. I feel rating of two stars is totally missing the point of the car. It is a very nice car for driving around town and occasional trips out with a great feel good factor.
