2008 Lancia Musa in

Lancia released a detailed of the 2008 Lancia Musa and a photo gallery. The 2008 Musa wants to follow the steps of the previous model was the best selling people-mover in in 2006 and 2007.

Designed by the Style Centre, the new Musa a compact, as its dimensions show: it is more than four long, 1.70 metres 1.66 metres tall and has a of 2.51 metres. The new model a greater ‘size impression’, as a of several styling changes blend the elegance of the shape the practicality and interior space. For a number of chrome details on the underline the model’s dynamic while they hint at the of future Lancia cars. The new logo stands out at the centre of the chrome grille, a sign of the reinterpreted in a modern key to represent

a that is projected towards the of the future but also proud of its own identity.

The designers have succeeded in remodelling the rear of the while maintaining the harmony and consistency of the front. The generous is now larger than on the previous guaranteeing more space and access so that the luggage can be exploited better: luggage has been increased by 70 litres to 390 (460 litres when the

seats are fully forward, a for this class), and the loading has been lowered by 4 cm to make it to stow bags and cases. In words the new Musa has all the roominess of a

And finally, the side view is and uncluttered, with two profiles run parallel to the waistline, accentuating the dynamic look. The higher of the two is by a chrome moulding that the new alloy wheels. The effect is by the Musa logo, which a chaise longue, a symbol of and relaxation, positioned at the base of the between the two doors, and the Lancia set in the corner of the third side

The new Musa is the first people-mover in its to mount technological rear fitted with LEDs, provide greater luminous and enhanced safety compared to lights, as well as unique

The same stylistic consistency is inside the car. The interior of the new appeals to the emotions; a real but also a light-filled, practical, passenger compartment that comfortable driving at all times for and passengers, thanks also to the seats which can be adjusted to numerous positions. These are also the result of the care has gone into every the luxurious materials used and the of refined, elegant matching combinations between the bodywork and the upholstery, which is available in two one warmer and welcoming, the other and technological; we should also the novelty of a choice between the brown facia and new dark

The ergonomic seats combine the raised driving seat and the arranged controls to make the more enjoyable and easy to The whole effect is made more interesting by the adoption of exclusive features typical of from the panoramic opening to dual-zone climate control, Sound System, the DFN gearbox and the system which allows you to and to listen to music as you drive, and simply, thanks to the hands-free with voice recognition, and to technology (the device incorporates a USB port positioned on the to which all types of digital can be connected). And finally, to maximise on board, the new Musa adopts the soundproofing equipment available the new sound-absorbent ceiling, which is of an innovative polyester-based material, the sound inside the passenger by approximately 2 dB, an improvement that is to occupants.

The new Musa is elegant, and lavishly equipped, and guarantees dynamic behaviour at all times and an drive, the result of the performance by the five engines in the range, all of are elastic, sturdy and eco-friendly. are three Multijet turbodiesels: the 1.9 100 bhp, and two 1.3 units delivering 70 or 90 bhp can be combined with the DFN gearbox, the 90 bhp version offers the option of a trap).

There are also two engines: the sparkling 1.4 Fire 77 or 95 bhp (the latter also the DFN gearbox). The engines on the new Musa are with a choice of two gearboxes: a speed mechanical unit and the DFN, a robotised device functions in sequential or automatic Whatever you choose, the new Musa is as enjoyable in town traffic or on or short journeys out of town.

The new comes in a broad, comprehensive that caters for customers very different tastes and The new model range offers 80 possible combinations obtained by 5 different outfits (Argento, and Oro and both available in two different warm or cold), 14 bodywork (10 of which are new) and 4 new ‘b-colore’ liveries, producing the broadest in this segment.

The design of the interior combined the of different colours with of different materials, including fabrics, quality leather and Alcantara®. Chrome and satin-effect enhance the lines and shapes of the

Revamped styling that is and practical

The styling of the new Musa is more attractive and modern by a of elements that reflect the market trends. And this refinement has created a greater impression’ of the car, which certainly be appreciated by the target that demands not only refined lines, but practicality and too.

Designed by the Lancia Centre, the model incorporates substantial references to classic stylistic elements, re-read in a key to reflect the evolution of styling in segment vehicles. A number of elements have been to the front, to underline a new styling which accentuates the model’s look while it hints at the of future Lancia’s. The new Lancia stands out at the centre of the elegant a sign of the past reinterpreted in a key to represent a brand that is towards the challenges of the future but proud of its historical identity.

The harmony and stylistic consistency are in the entirely remodelled rear The generous tailgate is in perfect with the new stylistic imprint of the and contains two significant novelties. To with, luggage compartment has been increased by 70 litres to 390 and becomes 460 litres when the seats are fully forward, a capacity that puts the at the top of its class.

And the loading floor has lowered by 4 cm to make it easier to bags and cases; in other more space and better so that it can be exploited better.

feature of the rear end of the new Musa are the technological rear lights; thin vertical elements, with LEDs, which greater luminous intensity and safety than conventional as well as their unique The new Musa is the first people-mover in its to adopt this technology, is usually only found on cars.

The surface of the sides is and sleek. Two profiles run parallel to the creating a faceted effect accentuates the car’s dynamic The higher of the two is underlined and highlighted by the new moulding that matches the new wheels.

The effect is enhanced by the logo, which recalls a longue, the symbol of comfort and positioned at the base of the pillar the two doors, and the Lancia logo set in the of the third side window. The lines and lack of sharp emphasise the welcoming, protective of the passenger compartment, a ‘treasure-chest’ promises great safety and the comfort in small dimensions: it is more than four long, 1.70 metres 1.66 metres tall and has a of 2.51 metres.

Although the new has grown in length, it is still a model, on the outside, but offers all the of a flagship on the inside. The balance the bodywork, the large side and the large sunroof is the key to the luminous, interior.

In line with the Lancia style of recent the new Musa welcomes passengers and in an environment that combines with practicality, thanks to the seats, which can be placed in positions. The rear seat has an armrest, and slides to expand the compartment, or to give rear more legroom. It also 60/40 and reclines; the squab of the passenger seat, on the other folds down into a table.

Traditional Lancia and refinement is reflected in the great that has gone into detail and the refined colour between the bodywork and interior which is available in two tones, one and welcoming, and the other colder and and there is now a choice between a blue facia and the original

The customer can have his New Musa to measure’, like a tailored There are over 80 possible that come from 5 different interior outfits and Oro and Platino both available in a and a cold shade), 14 bodywork (10 of which are new) and 4 new ‘b-colore’ it is the broadest range of alternatives in segment.

Colour has always much more than a of aesthetics for Lancia; it is an integral of a product philosophy whose elements include elegance, personality, verve, styling and an endless choice of ways to the car. And finally, in the interior, of the colours is associated with of the trim, with a choice of fabrics, luxury leather and Alcantara®.

Cutting-edge technology for well-being on

Travelling in the new Musa is always an experience, thanks to the airy the pleasant surfaces and the wrapround of its ergonomic seats. The raised position and ergonomically arranged make a living space is easy to dominate all the more

The whole effect is made more interesting by the adoption of exclusive features typical of from the panoramic sunroof to the climate system, Bose® System and DFN gearbox. And finally, to well-being on board, the new Musa the best equipment available in terms of soundproofing; the new sound-absorbent which is made of an innovative material, attenuates the sound the passenger compartment by approximately 2 dB, an that is perceptible to occupants.

space and the road

The new Musa is a car in to relax and travel safely. Its was designed to accommodate passengers in the possible way: as you discover you get in, sit down, adjust the seats and and close the large sunroof. The new meets the demand for roominess a population whose needs are in step with its height: the room coefficient is 99.5%.

At the occupants varying in height 1.50 to approximately 2 metres find the adjustment that them. And even when the is very tall, a passenger of a height seated behind him still be very comfortable. at shoulder height is excellent in the and rear, and by adjusting the sliding the luggage compartment capacity can be to 460 litres.

The interior roominess is for this segment, both in terms and in relation to the dimensions of the But, for Lancia, the ‘quality of the is even more important the physical measurements. The airy creates a new dimension to life in the and the pleasure of being on board.

The versatility offers plenty of but above all it offers space you need it, letting you choose how to the space and which of the 32 possible to adopt.

Where ‘dominion of the is concerned, the new Musa was designed and to meet motorists’ desires and new demand for mobility. The driving is extremely modern: seats are for better control of the road, a that is helped by the generous The gearshift is positioned at the centre of the the steering wheel adjusts for and rake, and the driving seat adjusts for height.

The instrumentation at the of the facia is easier to read of the optimal distance of the digits and the graphics. All the (analogue) instruments are with an orange light, and the driving position guarantees dynamic responses.

The suspension on the new was designed to guarantee control and independent wheel MacPherson at the front, and interconnected wheels a torsion beam at the rear. The of the two systems provides handling of an up-market model.

The sense of conveyed by the car is not only the psychological of the care, elegance and ‘domestic’ of the furnishings: it is also the result of an element: the fact that the car precise safety criteria.

The sunroof

The new Musa is a sunny in addition to the generous glazed it also offers a large sunroof, made of two glass (one of which opens) and two that slide independently the rear of the car. When blinds are open, the transparent accounts for 70% of the roof. This generation device opens and very rapidly: the front panel opens in just seconds.

That is not all: it changes your relationship the environment. The alternative is not just an open roof or a closed the Musa offers passengers the of being perfectly protected the elements but with the interior in light through the ‘window on the But the front panel can also be to an intermediate position on its aluminium you only have to release the button to stop the movement in the position.

And finally, the opening incorporates a safety system reverses the movement of the glass if it an obstacle.

Dual zone system

The climate inside the car is one of the factors of comfort during a and it is also important for preventive because temperature, humidity and affect the driver’s well-being and his attention level. The system on the new incorporates a highly sensitive control unit that the temperature, air flow, the air distribution driver and passenger, and activation of the and the recirculation function. It is a ‘dual-zone’ capable of supplying a different on the left and the right side of the compartment.

The new Musa also adopts an temperature’ climate control A number of sensors assess the of thermal well-being perceived by the in relation to the set temperature. This it possible to keep the interior constant even when conditions change.

The customer can the temperature gradually, by half a at a time, until he reaches climatic comfort. The knob a range of 16°C, with a difference between the left and of the car of 7°C. The system is entirely but manual selections always precedence over the automated and it is always possible to deactivate the entirely.

The ‘dual-zone’ climate incorporates a device known as the Air Sensor (AQS) which the quality of the air. The sensor triggers the recirculation function and out the outdoor air when the car is travelling in an with a high level of

The Bose® Sound System

Any would be incomplete without the that comes from And on the new Musa, the Bose® Sound revives the emotions of a concert with a sound that all occupants completely.

The system was by the American company that is of the acoustic Hi-Fi market, and it realistic reproduction with clear high notes and rich basses. The incredible of depth experienced by passengers is the of complex acoustic planning, designed the passenger compartment of the car and the system together.

The Bose® Sound System includes an power amplifier with 6 channels. An equaliser automatically perfect electronic balancing of the on all frequencies, as well as great and clear tones throughout the range. A total of 7 diffusers are into the car: two 165 mm broadband in the front doors with 50 mm two 150 mm mid-woofers in the rear sides and a dual-coil subwoofer with a of 130 mm in the rear, plus two tweeters in the pillars.

Besides the Bose® System, the new Musa offers a of two more audio systems, into the design of the dashboard. As an to the Bose® system they can adopt six speakers, with a output of 4×30 Watt, and incorporate RDS (Radio Data and the TA function (traffic news). One a CD player, while the other reads MP3 files.

All the audio feature automatic volume according to the vehicle speed, and can be to the hands-free kit of the GSM telephone. They are protected against theft to a communication protocol with the unit that manages the system (body computer). the ignition is turned on, the body checks the radio code, and activates it if the numerical sequence is

Stealing it is a waste of time as the cannot be used on another The customer can also install a for up to ten CDs on his new Musa, which can be activated by the wheel controls.

The DFN gearbox

The DFN is a robotised gearbox that transmission automatically, and is available the 1.4 16v and 1.3 Multijet 16v engines. The device driving in town traffic convenient due to the automatic mode, after having enjoyed a sporty driving style the manual transmission.

The DFN gearbox the clutch and gear lever by means of an electrohydraulic servo, but all the advantages of a dry clutch and a mechanical (weight, sturdiness and reliability, low consumption).

There are two operating semiautomatic (manual) and automatic.

The is more similar to manual and gears are engaged using the on the tunnel. Because there is no pedal, the device is controlled by moving the lever: forward to up (towards the ‘+’ symbol), back to down (towards the ‘-’ symbol). A push is sufficient to ensure the makes a fast, accurate change.

The second mode two settings: Normal and Economy. The setting provides outstanding comfort, with brilliant and gear changes in all conditions. The setting, on the other hand, is to reduce fuel consumption, still maintaining outstanding and comfort. With both the system extends the rev speed to the ratio reached when the delivers maximum torque or

And in automatic mode, the system the road gradient and modifies the shift point to ensure the possible compromise between the needs, ground conditions and the situation (speed and engine

The DFN has another advantage over manual and automatic transmissions: it can the driver’s requests and adapt to his style. To do so, it examines the mapping of the position and the engine revs as requests for power). And to guarantee and prevent incorrect gear the system engages neutral when a door is open the engine running.

The device also prevents that might damage the or gearbox, by notifying the driver of situations or incorrect manoeuvres warning lights and beeps.

In mode, the robotised electronic of the DFN gearbox allows the gear to be set when the engine reaches its efficiency. This exploits the and torque of the 1.4 16v and 1.3 Multijet engines in with a net improvement in acceleration to a manual gearbox.

In automatic with the Economy key engaged, the new consumes less than a manual gearbox: on the combined the 1.3 Multijet engine returns of 4.6 l/100 km compared to 4.7 l/100 km a manual gearbox; for the 1.4 16v engine, the are 6.4 l/100 km compared to 6.6 l/100 km.

The have succeeded in calibrating a change management system does not detract from or from the enjoyment of driving the but does lower consumption. And all technological features are available at a that is significantly lower that of a conventional automatic

The ‘BlueMe’® system

The new Musa can be with the innovative ‘BlueMe®’ based on the Windows Mobile developed by Fiat Group and Microsoft, which changes the information and entertainment paradigms in the improving comfort and the quality of on board. The device is easy to use and technology allows you to make and telephone calls and listen to simply and safely as you drive, with the outside world the car via your own personal devices as cell phones and PDAs.

more evolved devices be available later, giving to the many novelties that will make available in the years: from complete operation to satellite navigation, and a set of will also be offered to using the car more convenient, and easier.

The BlueMe® device a refined hands-free system voice recognition, which maximum driving safety in all and in full respect for the law, the driver can use it without taking his off the wheel. The system allows a with a Bluetooth® cell to use it without taking it out of his pocket or and it automatically lowers the radio (if this is on) and transmits the interlocutor’s through the stereo speakers. is more, the system is compatible all the cell phones on the market and may be upgraded to comply with new and future telephones.

The BlueMe® is built into the car and the control are on the steering wheel, so that you can for a number in the phonebook by scrolling the display on the instrument panel, or the communication for a more confidential

The main features include the that a cell phone has to be registered once on the system, and the phonebook can be transferred to the car, automatically updated every the system recognises the cell

Privacy is guaranteed because to the phonebook is only granted the telephone registered with the is present. The display shows the or name of the person calling if is recognised by the phonebook, and it is possible to a number ‘vocally’ by dictating it by digit, or to call a person by his or her name, if it is memorised.

And thanks to an voice recognition process, no learning process is necessary. The is able to memorise up to 5 cell thus granting several of a single car immediate use of the hands-free the programming can obviously be modified necessary. And with the hands-free with voice recognition, it is possible to reproduce personal call tones through the car

This is the hands-free system voice recognition, but there are features to the innovative BlueMe® it allows you to listen to your music recorded on a cell new smart phone, an MP3 player or a USB pen This is made possible by the of a USB port on the tunnel, which can to any digital device with a connection. This allows audio files (MP3, WMA and to be played through the stereo

And because all the information is visible on the panel display, the user can the system archive (divided by album, artist, etc.) vocally or using the steering controls, and select the music he

Generous engines for an enjoyable

The engines in the range guarantee a balance between performance, and respect for the environment. The range three Multijet turbodiesels: the elastic 1.9 delivering 100 bhp, and two 1.3 delivering 70 or 90 bhp, which are in town when combined the sequential robotised DFN gearbox 90 bhp version is available with the of a particulate trap). There are two petrol engines: a 1.4 delivering 77 and a 95 bhp 1.4 Fire (also available the DFN gearbox).

The 100 bhp 1.9 Multijet

This is a 1.9 Multijet (Common rail with injection) with 4 cylinders in bore of 82 mm and … of 90.4 mm. are two valves per cylinder, activated by an overhead camshaft. The Common system adopted by the 100 bhp 1.9 Multijet two automatic strategies to control and balancing of the injected diesel making for quieter operation and vibration.

The combustion chamber has been optimised to improve the efficiency, reducing the compression to 18:1.

Turbocharging on the engine is a geometry turbo fitted an electronic Waste Gate which improves power while guaranteeing high even at low engine speeds. it to say that 90% of peak torque is between 1750 and 3250 and this translates into enjoyable driving and sparkling

The 1.9 Multijet features an extremely heating-up stage and excellent delivery (100 bhp at 4000 combined with generous (26.4 kgm at 1750 rpm). this engine, the new Musa a top speed of 179 km/h, accelerating 0 to 100 km/h in 11.5 seconds, and 0 to 1000 m in just 33 seconds. performance, but low consumption: 6.5 l/100 km in the cycle, 4.4 l/100 km out of town and 5.2 km on the combined cycle.

Like the 1.3 the 1.9 Multijet belongs to the family of generation Common rail They share the same as the original Common rail high injection pressure and injector control. But with an feature: the number of injections during each engine

Inside the cylinder, the quantity of fuel burned remains the but it is broken down into parts for more gradual, complete combustion. The secret of the lies in the electronic control that governs the opening and of the injectors, which can make perform a series of very injections.

There are three advantages over the first Common rails: quieter lower emissions and boosted

The 90 bhp and 70 bhp 1.3 Multijet 16v

The new Musa range not be complete without the 1.3 16v Multijet the smallest and most advanced generation direct injection rail diesel unit, now in two power levels: 90 bhp and 70 bhp.

to a variable geometry turbo the version Multijet delivers a of 90 bhp (66 kW) at 4000 rpm and torque of 200 Nm (20.4 at 1750 rpm. That is not With the 90 bhp 1.3 Multijet, the new Musa excellent performance: it accelerates 0 to 100 km/h in 12.5 seconds, 0 to 1000 m in 34 seconds and has a top speed of 173 Fuel consumption is 6.0 l/100 km in the cycle, 4.0 l/100 km out of town and 4.7 km in the combined cycle

A number of have been made to the new in addition to the different turbo turbo on the 70 bhp 1.3 Multijet is of fixed type). The combustion system has modified, increasing the permeability of the and exhaust manifolds, reducing the in the combustion chamber and consequently the geometry and the compression ratio 18:1 to 17.6:1.

The emissions system includes an EGR valve electrical activation, managed by the engine control system, a exchanger to cool the recirculating gases (EGR) and a close catalytic converter. This that the car meets the EEC STAGE 4 targets.

Performance is also from the 70 bhp 1.3 Multijet: 70 bhp at 4000 rpm (51 kW) and torque of 180 Nm at just 1750 Equipped with this the Musa has a top speed of 159 km/h, from 0 to 100 km/h in 15.4 and from 0 to 1000 m in 36.6 Fuel consumption is also the best in this segment: 6.0 km in the urban cycle, 4.2 l/100 km out of and 4.9 l/100 km in the combined cycle.

are the differences between the 70 bhp and 90 bhp versions; they both share the architecture. They are both engines with a capacity of cc, a bore of 69.6 mm and a ‘long’ of 82 mm. There are four valves per activated directly by a twin camshaft. That is not all.

The 1.3 16v is a miniature masterpiece of technology: with all its accessories, it weighs 130 kg, it is small, less than 50 cm and 65 cm tall, and the component layout was to take up as little space as

Designed to respect criteria of rationality, efficiency and reliability, the guarantees excellent efficiency and is ‘for life’: it was designed to 250,000 km without needing any to the mechanicals. Oil change intervals also been extended, 20,000 to 30,000 km, and the 1.3 Multijet 16v a low viscosity oil, which fuel economy and more for the environment.

The compact, sophisticated 1.3 Multijet 16v 70 bhp and 90 bhp) represents a technological forward which, for the customer, into lower consumption and without even taking consideration the reduction in noise to the multiple injections), the increase in (fewer alternating masses less vibration), the smooth, steering (due to the extremely torque delivery, which in is guaranteed by the improved combustion the elasticity and prompt response of a that resembles a petrol for the vast excursion in the number of (for example, you are no longer of the fuel ‘cut-out’ just 4000 rpm), or the ecological that enhance the diesel’s environmental credentials (consumption) minimising its main defect emissions).

The 77 bhp and 95 bhp 1.4 16v Fire

The new engine has a of 1368 cc, and 4 cylinders in line, of 72 mm, … of 84 mm, and two valves per cylinder on the 95 bhp version). The engine was developed particular attention to performance and to economy, two areas in which the new leads its class. The merit to the volumetric efficiency which has optimised all through the operating thanks to a specific fluid-dynamic of the entire intake system and of the

There is a choice of two versions: the delivers 57 km (77 bhp) at 6000 and peak torque of 11.7 kgm at rpm. It has a top speed of 163 km/h and from 0 to 100 km/h in 13.5 Consumption is particularly low: 7.9 km in the urban cycle, 5.2 l/100 km out of and 6.2 l/100 km in the combined cycle.

The new can also be equipped with 1.4 Fire engine, which 70 kW (95 bhp) at 5800 rpm, and torque of 13 kgm at 4500 rpm. this engine the Lancia has a top speed above 175 km/h, from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.5 and from 0 to 1000 m in 33 seconds. But remains good: 8.7 l/100 km in the cycle, 5.4 l/100 km out of town, and 6.6 km in the combined cycle.

A sparkling yet engine that delivers performance, achieved thanks to the electronic throttle valve system known as ‘drive by The engine is also completely with devices such as ESP and Control. The 1.4 16v Fire engine high torque values at low characteristics that make it to limit fuel consumption.

respect Euro 4 legislation, to the catalytic converter in the engine which reaches very temperatures faster, thus emissions even while the is warming up. To minimise the environmental the engine also incorporates a fuel supply system, eliminates fuel recirculation the tank, and reduces vapour

Exciting, sparing on fuel and to these characteristics, the 95 bhp 1.4 16v Fire adds excellent acoustic To reduce the vibration transmitted the engine to the bodyshell to a minimum, a engine support system has adopted, so as to obtain reaction with a neutral link.

A comprehensive range
