The Lancia Prisma (Tipo 831) was a compact executive car built by Italian car manufacturer Lancia between 1982 and 1989. It was a saloon version of the first generation Lancia Delta hatchback, and like the Delta it was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro.

Like its smaller hatchback "brother", shared its chassis and engines with the parallel Fiat Ritmo and Regata. Unlike the Delta, though, the Prisma never had a career in motorsports, the most powerful version using the Fiat DOHC engine in 2.0 L guise, mated to Lancia's Integrale four wheel drive transmission, for a maximum of 115 PS (83 kW), about half of the Delta Integrale. This model was originally sold as the Prisma 4WD, but towards the end of 1987 the name was changed to Prisma Integrale - along with a drop in price, at least in the home market.[3]
