The Lancia Thema is the first global flagship to combine the expertise and functionality of Chrysler – it is based on the new Chrysler 300 built on the Chrysler Group LX rear-wheel drive platform – with the luxury of Poltrona Frau ® leather interiors, the hushed silence of the great Lancias and the attention to detail which are the best expression of Italian manufacturing.

Available in two trim levels (Platinum and Executive) and two engine versions (the 286 HP V6 3.6L petrol engine with 8-speed automatic gearbox and the new MultiJet II 190 HP and 239 HP 3.0L V6 engine equipped with 5-speed automatic gearbox), the new car has an attractive price which corresponds to equipment of great value in this market segment.

The largest wealth of features ever offered in the safety field is proof of that. In fact, there are more than 70 systems installed on the new Lancia flagship, including Adaptive Speed Control (ACC) that adjusts the speed and automatically brakes to maintain the safety distance and Blind Spot Detection which signals entry of a vehicle into the blind spot or Forward Collision (front impact prevention) whose sensor positioned on the lower part of the front bumper picks up and informs the driver of potentially dangerous distances.

Together with many others available or offered as standard depending on the trim level, all these systems make the Thema one of the safest cars on the market: it is no chance that the Lancia flagship was awarded 5 Euro NCAP stars in 2012, the maximum for safety.

Also contributing to making Thema the new paradigm of the segment are the sunroof, the largest in its market segment with a 70% glazed surface, and the U-Connect system with 8.4 touch screen, the largest and most advanced of its category that can be used to manage all the onboard functions of the car. And that’s not all. The first global flagship boasts a passenger compartment that is a true best-in-class lounge with Nappa leather interiors and real wood inserts.

Also its level of quiet is outstanding. It is embellished with quality materials that make it warm and exclusive, the result of a historical craftsmanship that only Italian style can provide. The Lancia flagship is also top of its class in terms of driving comfort, handling, steering response and efficiency of the electro hydraulic power assisted steering.

Similarly, the multi-link suspension architecture, the exceptional structural rigidity and the high-performance braking system ensure a safe, smooth drive.

Finally, having always been a pioneer in the field of technological innovation, Lancia has recently presented the new Thema AWD, the most advanced all-wheel drive system in the segment allowing the car to be controlled even in extreme conditions in total safety.

Available in Switzerland on Platinum and Executive trim levels, AWD is combined with the powerful 3.6 V6 Pentastar 286 HP engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox developed by ZF. In detail, the innovative AWD system automatically deactivates the all-wheel drive whenever it is unnecessary and without the driver’s intervention to release all the torque onto the rear axle.

This maximises fuel savings while however guaranteeing the exceptional performance and handling advantages of rear-wheel drive. Furthermore, the AWD system automatically switches on during the coldest months of the year, when slipping is detected or when the windscreen wiper sensors detect rain or snow, in order to optimally tackle poor grip surfaces.
