Lancia Voyager is a 7-seater minivan, which depending on time and place could be a Dodge Caravan, a Chrysler Town & Country or a Volkswagen Routan. After Fiat took over Chrysler a decision was made to limit the presence of American brands in Europe, focusing on models with the biggest sales potential or filling gaps in model lineups of other brands owned by Fiat. And so the Voyager became a Lancia.

      This is like the time GM told Saab to only change the body and the badges

      ... except Lancia gave in to Chrysler's low standards instead of ignoring them and making a better car like Saab did with GM

      5:36 -- the Voyager/GrandCaravan/Town and Country is a comfortable ride, certainly, but the old American Iron cars were far smoother.

      That's actually pretty neat. Most minivans are a total scam, the rearmost seats only fit children.

      I live in America. The Voyager name has been dead since 2003. The Town & Country has been replaced by the Pacifica minivan.

      I live in the USA and i do have the 2013 Chrysler T&C touring L witch is the cheaper version of T&C . I have the 3.6l pentastar and it is a beast 288 hp and it pulls very good. Gas milage is very good on the highway on eco mode but in the city i only get about 16 MPG witch is about 14.6 liters per 100 km. its very comfortable and very roomy . I have three kids so this is the typical american family car. There are lots of plastic comparments inside and i dont think three adults can sit on the third row seat. Overall its a very good family car easy to drive and lots of technology for the money.

      +Vini_Usa If I could I would get an Honda odyssey or toyota sienna, but they are for the American market only and I am not paying the import tax. Other than that you pretty much only get crossovers here or full on vans configured as people carriers.

      +Vini_Usa From European perspective this car is old, cumbersome, and inefficient. 16 MPG is reserved for high-performance sports cars ;)

      Actually, no need to limit the presence of American brands in Europe or any place for that matter..let the market decide what brand the market wants ??

      But i believe any such decision to limit American presence was in response to limitations imposed on European brands on USA markets ? I recall some 20+ years ago when Mercedes-Benz further expanded in USA market they did not market the Mercedes-Benz Actros or Sprinter there. Instead the Sprinter vaguely appeared in USA as some Dodge branded model ? Then they used Mercedes-Benz parts in Freighliner trucks & Thomas buses...all USA brands as if the Mercedes-Benz brand of trucks, vans & buses 'never existed in this world' there !

      Free choice of brand availability should have been given instead of deciding for the market what brand to offer or not to be offered. Let the brands themselves 'compete' for customer demand...the 'fittest' survives ought to be motto instead of trying to artificially 'protect' the existence of a brand ?

      I recently ran into this at a local dealership. Just having had a test run in the Merc V-class, I was more than eager to see what this was up to. Stepping into the car was like stepping into a dream. Everything felt plush, thought out and nicely designed. You can imagine my surprise when taking it out on the road. I pushed it in the corners and things began flying. Even the much taller van based Ford Tourneo had better handling. Adding the poor fuel economy and thus added tax, I'm not even sure that it's more economic than the V-class in the end. So that was a disappointment...

      I saw couple of these in front of the hotels and airports and they seemed nice. Still I would like to see full brand renaissance, from little Y up to sporty models. Hope Lancia will survive.

      I saw recently Y Elefantino Rosso from 90's and it was beautiful

      +g00dfeeling True, but then you've got Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500 X, which look completely different and have different character. I don't expect anything from Lancia. I actually wonder, why FCA bothers to keep the brand alive. Lancia literally has two models in its lineup these days.

      g00dfeeling In reply to g00dfeeling

      +Marek Drives We cannot expect from Lancia to develop separate platforms. Every car manufacturer is sharing architecture between different brands, especially VAG and PSA. In my opinion Fiat is the most successful as 500 and Y are the most distinctive cars in their segments. Just compare them with UP/Citigo/Mii which are so dull and lifeless vehicles. New model lineup with one independent model such as Fulvia would be perfect.

      +Marek Drives i remeber the lancia Thema from di '80-90.. My father had one, 2,5TD Station wagon Pininfarina, and it was ahead of its time, full specs! alcantara seats, arm rests, automatic AC, hydrulic steering, heated mirros, ABS, aluminum wheals, el. window font&rear, board computer... there was even a Ferrari version of it...

      All italian politicians where driven in Lancia and I would love to see Lancia coming back! and not just sticking the badge on american cars

      the Canadian models have Daytime running lights...(high beam bulbs at one-half voltage)
      it is a software change that the dealership can perform...

      when you use the turn signals, the DRL on that side of the car blanks out...

      JSINON sinon In reply to Loop44

      +Loop44 +marekdrives the reason they're are now drls is because in America they turn signals are always on in the front. So u have an orange/Amber day time running light. So this means there is no need for a led strip or other bulb. So when it came to Europe it's was simply left out, which brings me on to the sat nav which suffers due to that problem

      Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Ram C/V, VW Routon, Chrysler Voyager, now Lancia Voyager. Not quite as bad as Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Saab 9-7X, all in the US market.
