I want to share my impressions of the car Â«Lancia YpsilonÂ», which I took for rent in Italy, although I originally promised to "Volkswagen Polo".
This car model has a very small dimensions with a diesel engine. It is very suitable for driving on a narrow Italian streets and mountain roads.
Let us consider the main strengths and weaknesses of this car.
Exterior car Â«Lancia YpsilonÂ» made an amateur with a rather stylish solutions, especially with regard to the rear. The radiator grille is made with the creation of some expensive car. The car is really small, but it should not refer to a machine that can run exclusively by women.
The company which is engaged in car rental services, provided the vehicle without the front cover on the wheel and with scratches on the rear bumper. These faults I noticed only on the third day of the car and thought that maybe the damage inflicted on the car was my fault, so afraid that the company will make me pay for the existing scratches. But as it later became known, every second car in Italy is not at least one, or more bells and many have significant scratches body.
If we talk about the interior and ergonomics Â«Lancia YpsilonÂ», it is worth noting that is ideal for people with an increase of up to 170 centimeters. The car has high visibility and functionality. However, there is no armrests. In the rear seat passengers will feel uncomfortable - because of the small amount of free space at the rear. Not pleased, and a small amount of luggage space. Steering wheel is convenient and comfortable while running.
Speaking about the engine, it is worth noting that the diesel engine - the optimal solution for the machine. Dynamic characteristics are high (rapid acceleration, agility felt when overtaking another vehicle.) While such results are achieved by small vehicle weight.
Transmission is quite comfortable to operate, not too stiff. It has a high rate of turn, so is ideal for maneuvering through narrow streets. Braking systems - without drawbacks.
