Italian based auto maker Lancia will be unveiling the Delta Executive as well as the Delta Hardblack show car at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
The Lancia Delta Executive is positioned as a premium, chauffeur-driven vehicle with a number of features that are worthy of the premium treatment including a semi-automatic Magic Parking system that should function like Volkswagen’s Park Assist that in available in the VW Tiguan.
In the Tiguan, the driver only needs to accelerate and brake and leave the steering to designated sensors to perform parallel parking. Other features include; electronic variable damping suspension, Diamond-edged alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights as well as a jet-back roof treatment on top of the copper-toned body. It also comes with a rather spacious rear cabin.
The auto maker revealed that the Delta Executive is powered by the new 1.8 litre DiTurboJet power plant which is coupled with a 6 speed automatic transmission. The 200HP engine is capable of delivering a 0 to 100 km/h sprint figure of 7.4 seconds, and a top speed of 230 km/h. Fuel consumption wise, it consumes 7.8 litre for every 100 kilometers traveled and it produces only 185 grams of emissions per kilometer.
The Lancia Delta Hardblack on the other hand is a show car which features a slightly up-rated version of the 1.8 litre DiTurboJet power plant used in the Executive. This Hardblack show car is treated to a sporty styling with a Lava Black paint finish. Alcantara Starlite black finish on the inside also breathes “sportiness”.
