New photos and info officers dedicated to the Lancia Thema. 5,066 mm long, 1,488 mm high, wide and with a wheelbase of 1,902 mm 3,052, the car was created on the basis of the new Chrysler 300 rear-wheel drive platform built on Chrysler Group LX: designed as a single unit, the union of the frame with the upper structure of the car ensures, according to Lance, a great driving dynamics. The credit goes to the suspension system front and rear multi-link. The construction of the new topic is characterized by advanced steels, nylon composite components and a new architecture and rear-wheel drive segment of “second generation” to ensure continuity in terms of stiffness on the front and rear, the rear structure the topic has been reinforced by 26% compared to previous models born on the platform.
More than 67% of the underbody structure and 53% of the structure of the upper body is molded and made with high-strength steels and advanced high strength steels. In particular, the use of high strength steel can be found in the center tunnel in the side shell, in the structures of the front wheel and bars in the car. Instead, thanks to a tensile strength about two times higher than high-strength steel, advanced high strength steel was used to make the critical areas of the body that require greater structural rigidity as the crosses of seats and the area above the rear transversely behind the rear seats, which provide more lateral stiffness. The ultra-strong forged steel is used for pillars, the doors on the body, the upper section of the front rail of the windshield and the gutter.
The topic is characterized by the front and rear suspension geometry redesigned: the front and rear suspension cradles of light, giving life to a group of ‘ultra-rigid “. Also new front monotube shocks, springs and an unprecedented position of the anchor sleeve of shock absorbers and front suspension front. In addition, new bushings in hydraulic front suspension, the roughness limit while driving prolonging braking characteristics to adjust. At the rear, the design of the rear suspension to five anchor points of the topic is characterized by the geometry “roll steer”, which allows independent control of the movement of the suspension, camber and toe. Thema Executive also has touring suspension tuning: ensures quicker steering and a 25% alignment of the upper steering column of 20%.
The steering is characterized by the EHPS (Electro Hydrualic Power Steering): a second control mode, the system applies an EHPS steering effort variable to different driving conditions. The EHPS analyzes the steering angle, vehicle speed, engine speed and control systems of the frame 13 times per second to give a feeling of precise handling and performance of the car. When the topic is still or at low speeds, the hydraulic pump increases the power steering reduces steering effort. The pump reduces power assist at high speeds and, consequently, the system ensures low fuel consumption of up to 1, 5% and a lower power consumption compared to a pump belt. Two motors provided at launch: a Pentastar V6 petrol and 3.6 l with an output of 286 hp 8-speed automatic transmission for a diesel engine and 3.0 liter V6 is available with two power levels: 190 hp and 239 hp, both 5-speed automatic transmission.
The Pentastar V6 petrol engine, Chrysler Group source meets the Euro 5: produces an output of 286 hp at a speed of 6,350 rev / min. and a maximum torque of 340 Nm at 4,650 r / min., with CO2 emissions of 219 g / km (fuel consumption combined: 9.4 l/100 km). Thus equipped the new topic can reach a top speed of 240 km / h and acceleration 0-100 km / h in 7.7 seconds. This result is obtained thanks to the new 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Euro 5 diesel engine – built by VM Motori and developed with Fiat Powertrain-delivers 190 horsepower at a speed of 4,000 rpm / min. and 239 hp at a speed of 4,000 rpm / min. The new 3.0 V6 is equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The 239 HP version has a maximum torque of 550 Nm at a speed of 1800-2800 r / min, while the 190 hp version has a maximum torque of 440 Nm at a speed of 1600-2800 r / min. The CO2 emissions of 185 g / km and combined fuel consumption is of 7.1 l/100 km for both versions. Thus equipped the new topic can reach a top speed of 230 km / h and acceleration 0-100 km / h in 7.8 seconds (239 hp) and 220 km / h and 9.7 seconds (190 hp).
The new Lancia Thema offers more than 70 advanced content of active and passive safety, including the electronic stability program (ESC) as standard Ready Alert Braking devices and “Rain Brake Support.” The first, on deceleration, braking to alert the system by decreasing the response time and braking distance while the second comes on when the wipers are activated by removing the water from the brake pads. To ensure maximum visibility, Lancia Thema offers adaptive xenon headlights, standard on SmartbeamTM function fitting and Executive Platinum. The ‘equipment continues with the Active Pedestrian Protection system to safeguard the pedestrians in case of accidental impact “raises” the back of the hood, and Keyless Enter-N-Go, the Parkview (TM) Rear Back-Up Room, which is automatically activated by inserting the reverse and projected on the screen 8.4-inch images built into the dashboard of the road.
Optional Adaptive Speed ??Control (ACC): If the vehicle reaches a much slower vehicle that precedes it, the ACC system regulates the speed and braking to maintain a safe distance as pre-installed by the driver, allowing it to avoid manual intervention frequently. The additional function Forward Collision Warning (FCS) instead, through a notice on the instrument panel, alerts the driver to be too close to the vehicle in front. But there is also the “Blind Spot Detection”, a visual indicator positioned on the exterior mirror, which marks the entrance into the “blind spot” of visibility and the system “Cross Path Detection” which prevents the risk of collisions at low speed (the presence of some sensors to detect the presence of moving vehicles while the driver is making the reverse). Marketed from October in all European dealerships, Lancia Thema will be available in three trim levels, Gold, Platinum and Executive. Lancia Thema offers standard Uconnect ® Touch, the info-telematic system with the touch screen of the largest segment (8.4 inches), a system that controls the touch-screen navigation system with dual zone climate control.
