Lancia has taken the wraps off the redesigned Ypsilon and facelifted Delta, ahead of their debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Described as the "alternative premium city car," the new Ypsilon is available exclusively as a five-door model. It measures 3840mm long, 1670mm wide, 1510mm tall, and rides on a wheelbase that spans 2390mm. Design highlights include a bold grille, hidden rear door handles, and distinctive LED taillights.

Inside, the cabin boasts ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and a center-mounted instrument cluster. Options include leather upholstery, a premium audio system, and Blue&Me-TomTom LIVE.

Under the hood, a variety of engines will be available. Petrol choices include a 1.2-liter with 69 hp (51 kW / 70 PS) and a 0.9-liter TwinAir with 85 hp (63 kW / 86 PS) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque. If you're a fan of alternative fuels, the 1.3-liter MultiJet II diesel produces 95 hp (71 kW / 96 PS) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque, while the 1.2-liter dual-fuel (petrol-LPG) cranks out 69 hp (51 kW / 70 PS).

No word on pricing, but the new Ypsi will go on sale in June.

For the facelifted Delta, designers added a new grille and revised trim levels. Engine options carryover, but there's a new 1.6-liter MultiJet that produces 105 hp (78 kW / 106 PS) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the MPV to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.7 seconds, hit a top speed of 186 km/h (116 mph), and have CO2 emissions of 120 g/km.

The updated Delta will go on sale in March, shortly after being unveiled in Geneva.
