2012 Lancia Voyager

 The benchmark in the segment of large MPVs, the Lancia Voyager is 5.21 meters long, 1.99 m wide, 1.75 m high on a wheelbase of approx. 3.1 meters. Offered standard in the configuration with 7 seats, it is a model for relaxing moments and comfortable journeys, whose passengers will benefit from a firm sense of on-board well being.

The Lancia Voyager’s suspension system uses a solid framework that is optimized to attain the best result in driving comfort and handling terms. At the front, it is the McPherson type with cross member and wishbones optimized for new load conditions; at the rear, there is a torsion beam and anti-roll bar to provide excellent handling performance. The Lancia Voyager’s suspensions have been specially developed for use on European roads, obtaining both exceptional traveling comfort with all types of road surfaces and handling features, such as precision and immediate driving response, of absolute reference.
Lancia Voyager proposes two Euro5-compliant engines which enhance the dimension of travel, with engineering and performance coming together to deliver comfort beyond compare: the lively 163 HP 2.8L diesel and the powerful 283 HP 3.6 petrol engine. The Lancia Voyager can be equipped with a 2.8 liter common rail turbo diesel engine delivering 163 HP and a torque of 360 NM, keeping fuel consumption at 7.9 l/100 km in the combined cycle while CO2 emissions are 207 g/km. The second engine in the range is the new 3.6L V6 petrol engine with 6 cylinders configured in a 60° V, which delivers 283 HP at 6,600 rpm and a torque of 344 NM at 4,400 rpm. Thrilling performance puts it at the top of the class, all with fuel consumption at around 10.8 l/100 km in the combined cycle.
Both engines comply with Euro 5 standards and are combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox with torque converter that offers closer spacing between the gears, limiting engine speed changes between the different transmission ratios and guaranteeing smoother engagements suited to all driving situations.
