D anke, very friendly: Hardly if the V6 diesel of the Lancia Thema grumblingly starts its work, the steering wheel warms the hands and the seat warms the back - all by itself. Of course, only if the driver has dictated that to the 5.07-meter-long sedan into the confusing on-board computer , but at least.

In addition, the US car assembled in Canada has been pampering since its wellness holiday in Italy with a chic interior, mostly made of high-quality materials harmonize well with each other optically but also mechanically. Only the chattering navigation voice and the 20-inch wheels that rumble over short bumps disturb the harmony in the Lancia Thema 3.0 Multijet 24V.

Lancia Thema 3.0 Multijet 24V needs 9.2 liters

In any case, the 239 hp engine from VM Motori is well insulated and strives for restrained acoustics that even the five-speed automatic transmission cannot destroy. Dear Lancia engineers, have you accidentally reached the wrong shelf, or why is the eight-speed variant only available for the petrol engine? In any case, the Lancia Thema 3.0 Multijet 24V diesel engine could use its cool torque of 550 Newton meters even better and thus reduce the test consumption of 9.2 L /100 km. In addition, there would certainly be more harmonious switching processes that could give the overall pleasant comfort yet another positive impulse - such as the attentive heating.
