    How much do you think it would cost?

    Wow. Very unusual shape with all those curves. But I like it.

    Couldn't give you an estimate on price... I don't really know much about the brand.

    They are currently only sold in mainland europe. Lancia were going to come back to the UK market with this model until the financial crisis delayed their plans. I believe they are priced similar to the Audi A3/BMW 1 series and it's stablemate the much better looking Alfa Romeo 147. So it will be around $20-30,000 I would expect.

    Really like the looks from the front, but the hatchback doesn't do it for me. Might just be the angle.

    The front is OKish… the rear is a disaster.
    Just looks like a cleaned up Chryler PT Cruiser.

    As said above, the Alfa 147 is a far better looking design.

    Screw that. I've been waiting for Alfa to sell the 159 or the Brera in the states for years now. Every year, same story, "Next year!" My fingers are itching to write the check.

    I like most cars that are not released in the US. Most people in our market have bad taste (IMHO), and like chunky looking / feeling autos. It is cool to see more cars from Europe on our shores. Vans like the Sprinter, and Transit Connect, down to smaller cars like the Ford Fiesta.

    Cars like that will never capture the vast scope of Americans in ways the Tahoe and Excursion do, but more choices for us less into Massive Earth Romers (MERs), is a nice touch!

    I don't really like the shape of it.

    The shape is a little bit Seat Leon-ish and to be honest, I'd prefer the Leon FR to that.

    The front is ugly too.

    If they did more work to look back to the iconic Delta from the late '80s/early '90s and gave it the same 4x4 drivetrain and turbo engine, then it would have more appeal.

    TIMG. please

    I don't care for the front end (it looks like one of those Korean utility vehicles I saw in the Dominican Republic) but I love the back end.

    EDIT: In my opinion, it looks like a nicer-styled SsangYong Stavic/Rodius

    They might have somewhat similar styling, but no one who knows anything about mechanics could equate a Mazda 3 with a Focus RS...

    As for the Lancia, the back reminds me of a Volvo C30.

    I see this car and I think of Jeremy Clarkson covering it on a segment of Top Gear.
