The Lancia Musa (Type 350) is a front-engine, front-wheel drive, five-door, five-passenger high-roof B-segment mini MPV manufactured by FCA and marketed by the company's Lancia subdivision for model years 2004 through 2012.

As a badge engineered variant of the Fiat Idea, the Musa also employs the Project 188 platform, originally used for the second-generation Fiat Punto.


The Musa design, an adaption of the Fiat Idea by Fabrizio Giugiaro, was initially supervised by Flavio Manzoni and subsequently Marco Tencone. It debuted at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show and deliveries began in Europe in October of the same year. The Musa's front and rear end styling bears resemblance to the technically-related Lancia Ypsilon, with which it shares headlights.[4] The interior features Alcantara or leather, as well as chrome details.

Like the Fiat Idea, the Musa offers an electrohydraulic manual transmission, an automated manual transmission marketed as Dolce Far Niente (D.F.N.) — for all engines except the 8-valve version of the 1.4 FIRE.[5]


A revised, mildly facelifted Musa premiered at the 2007 Venice Film Festival and debuted at Frankfurt Auto Show in October 2007 — with revised Lancia logo, front bumper fascia with new chrome moldings, body side moldings with chrome inserts, LED rear lamps and a luggage compartment 70 liters larger while and loading deck lowered by 4cm, as well as revised headliner sound-proofing in the headliner. Options including FCA's integrated In-Vehicle Infotainment system (marketed as Blue&Me), new body colours and equipment. In 2008 for Italian market Lancia introduced the EcoChic version with 1.4 Fire 8v dual power (LPG and petrol) engine. In 2009 Lancia introduced a start-stop system with the 1.4 Fire 16v and 1.3 Multijet II Euro 5 engines, the latter with 95 PS (70 kW; 94 hp).
