In line with the philosophy that considers the Ypsilon a real ‘miniature flagship’, the new Sport MomoDesign version is packed full of exclusive equipment that makes it a unique car in the compact segment. Travelling in the Ypsilon Sport MomoDesign means a passenger compartment that can be enjoyed in every situation and climate condition. This is due in part to the innovative, large opening sunroof, an advanced dual-zone automatic climate control and excellent Hi-Fi sound system. The state-of-the-art technological systems on offer on the Ypsilon Sport MomoDesign include the Blue&Me® system based on Windows Mobile technology, which was developed jointly by Fiat Group Automobiles and Microsoft. And finally, Lancia’s ‘pocket flagship’ is equipped with the best active and passive safety features on the market.

Blue&Me® and the world’s first ‘Community Car’

The Lancia Ypsilon Sport MomoDesign offers the innovative Blue&Me® system, which changes the communications, information and entertainment paradigms in the car, improving the comfort and quality of time spent on board. And the range will soon be equipped with even more advanced devices that will give access to the many novelties that technological progress brings in the future: from a complete multimedia system to satellite navigation and a whole series of services that will make every journey even more comfortable, safer and easier.

Lancia now takes a first step in this direction with the world’s first ‘Community Car’, an extraordinary novelty in the field of marketing and services that caters for ‘Very Ypsilon People’. After the success of the New Ypsilon Blue&Me® special series on the Italian market, the new Sport MomoDesign version will also be available with the Blue&Me® system. The Blue&Me® is extremely simple to use, thanks to Bluetooth® technology, and features a hands-free system with voice recognition that allows you to make and receive calls and to listen to music while you drive, simply and safely. It also lets you communicate with the outside world from the car using your own personal devices such as a cell phone or PDA. With the Blue&Me® system, you can listen to your favourite music recorded on a cell phone, on a new smart phone, on an MP3 player or on a USB pen drive.


All thanks to a USB port on the tunnel, which will take any digital device that has a similar connection. This makes it possible to reproduce musical audio files directly (MP3, WMA and WAV), through the stereo system.

Advanced technology at the service of safety

The new Ypsilon Sport MomoDesign does not only offer styling with plenty of personality, modern, reliable engineering, lavish equipment and outstanding comfort. It is also an extremely safe car. More than the individual devices it is the combination of the various systems that make this ‘pocket flagship’ one of the safest cars in its segment.

Stable, effective braking, good acceleration guaranteed by the engines and predictable handling, get the new Ypsilon out of any difficult situations with flying colours. To attenuate the consequences of an accident, great care went into the passive safety features. Airbags for the driver and passenger and curtain-bags are standard throughout the range (sidebags are offered as an option). Sidebags designed to protect the pelvis and chest of front passengers in a side-on impact are also available. Three-point seat belts are standard on the front seats and the outside rear seats. The front seats also incorporate pretensioners and height adjustment. And the head-restraints are designed to guarantee maximum safety as well as excellent comfort. They adjust for height and can be locked in every position for maximum practicality.

The new Sport MomoDesign version also adopts a number of sophisticated technical solutions that ensure that the driver is always in perfect control of the car (active safety). They include a latest generation ABS, complete with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and the sophisticated ESP (Electronic Stability Program) on request. The latter system cuts in when conditions are close to the limit, if the stability of the car is at risk, to help the driver to control the car.

The ESP is combined with a Hill Holder, which helps the driver on hill starts, and ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), which maintains maximum grip, even in difficult road conditions, by adjusting drive wheel slip when accelerating.
