Lancia Musa


Elegance, refinement and originality: these are the words that link the harmony of forms with attention to detail. This was the inspiration behind the Lancia Musa Platino +. a new version that adds new internal and external features to the prestigious standard features of the richest specification (Platino). The Lancia Musa Platino + will be on the market at the end of the year, with the powerful 100 bhp 1.9 Multijet or the new 90 bhp 1.3 Multijet engine, combined with the DFN transmission.

Refined styling

On the outside, the new version stands out for the bodywork colours, which are the most elegant in the range (Rossini Grey, Vasari Pearl, Angelico Light blue and Stradivarius Mink), but above all for the exclusive option of twin-tone bodywork, with the roof, pillars and tailgate painted a stylish metallic brown – a touch of originality and class that sets off the clean, harmonious exterior line perfectly.

A car from the ‘b-colore’ family is on display in Frankfurt, sporting Stradivarius Mink combined with Caravaggio Brown, an elegant, timeless combination that is reiterated in the lovely interior. This is decorated with the refinement and exclusiveness that are synonymous with the best Lancia tradition; a stylish lounge upholstered in leather (available in ivory or brown) on the seats and the door panels, finished with contrasting piping and overstitching, with the Musa logo on the head-restraint. The pattern on the piping is repeated on the leather armrests on the door panels.

Excellent performance

The version displayed at the Frankfurt show is equipped with the powerful, elastic 1.9 Multijet engine that delivers a maximum power output of 100 bhp (74 kW) at 4000 rpm and peak torque of 260 Nm (26.4 kgm) at 1750 rpm.

Combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox, this engine takes the Lancia Musa Platino + to a top speed of 179 km/h, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.5 seconds. However, fuel consumption remains an excellent 5.5 l/100 km on the combined cycle. The real novelty is the other engine on offer: the new 90 bhp 1.3 Multijet with a variable geometry turbo.

This engine has a superb specific power for its class (72 bhp/litre), and is available with the ‘Dolce Far Niente’ sequential robotised gearbox, which guarantees the best balance between performance and consumption in the entire Musa range. Performance is superior to that of the 70 bhp 1.3 Multijet, but it is no less environment friendly: the engine meets the Euro 4 limits and guarantees CO2 emissions that are 4% lower than those of the 70 bhp 1.3. With this engine the Musa Platino + has a top speed of 173 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.8 seconds.

Exclusive equipment

Lancia Musa

The standard equipment on the Platino + specification is exclusive and includes: dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite navigator with maps and pictograms complete with CD player and a GSM hands-free telephone, leather steering wheel, 4 airbags, parking sensors, GranLuce sunroof and two-tone alloy wheels. Plus remote control door release, Follow me home, ‘Dual Drive’ electric power steering, ABS with EBD, foglights, electric front and rear window controls, and heated electric door mirrors painted the same shade as the bodywork.

This level of equipment can have no rivals. The new Musa Platino + guarantees outstanding comfort, thanks to a steering wheel that adjusts for height and for reach, and to comfortable seats: the rear seat slides, folds down, tilts and splits, and is complete with 3 head-restraints and a removable armrest; the front seats fold into a table and the driver’s seat adjusts for height. Other features worthy of a higher segment are available on request, including steering wheel mounted radio controls, front armrests and lumbar adjustment of the front seats, Cruise Control, sidebags, two-tone paintwork and the Bose Hi-Fi system.

The trump cards of the Musa

The new Lancia Musa Platino + obviously confirms all the winning characteristics of this model which is enjoying great success on the market. The Lancia Musa is the outcome of the concept of ‘Italian hospitality’, in which we are guests and not passengers, and it invites us to share the pleasure of travelling in a car that is unique in its segment.

It is certainly a luxury product, but it never overdoes it because it was designed to reflect the wishes of people who like to enjoy life without forgoing practicalities. The Lancia Musa introduces the secrets of Italian hospitality to the car world; it is a car that welcomes its guests with good taste, warmth and generosity.

The Lancia Musa conveys good taste in its refined, harmonious lines, elegantly matching warm colours, precious details and quality materials. Its size is just as suitable around town or on long journeys: 3.98 metres long, 1.70 metres wide and 1.66 metres high, setting new standards in this particular compact car bracket.

The Lancia Musa conveys warmth in the sensations it offers its guests: the luminosity of the ‘GranLuce’ sunroof and the airy interior, the pleasant surfaces and the enveloping comfort of the ergonomic seats. The dual zone climate system and Bose Sound System® (typical equipment on a Lancia) make the interior space particularly enjoyable, and one that you dominate better thanks to the raised driving position, the ergonomic controls and the versatile seats, which can be moved into 32 different positions (including an unusual ‘chaise longue’ configuration).

The Lancia Musa conveys generosity with its technological features: engines that guarantee excellent performance, for relaxed, carefree driving. Three Multijet diesel units: the round, elastic 100 bhp 1.9, ideal in any situation and the 70 bhp and 90 bhp 1.3, which are perfect for the town, combined with the ‘Dolce Far Niente’ robotised sequential transmission. Motorists who travel shorter distances will enjoy the sparkling 95 bhp 1.4 Fire engine.
