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 2004-2012.

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.

History[edit]

The Musa debuted at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show with customer deliveries beginning in Europe in October of the same year. The Musa's front and rear end styling is visually very similar to that of the technically related Lancia Ypsilon, with which it shares the headlights.[3] 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.[4]

Facelift[edit]

The Musa received a facelift in October 2007 with boot space enlarged from 320 l to 390 l, new Lancia logo and 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).

Kandahar[edit]

In 2005 Leonardo Fioravanti presented his restyled prototype version of Musa. Externally differentiated by new bumpers and special conceptual roof from Kite concept car. Reupholstered interior and redesigned rear and trunk compartment with teak flooring.[5]
