2002 Lancia Thesis

2002 Lancia Thesis

The Thesis is Lancia’s own inimitable interpretation of the big prestige saloon theme. The Lancia Thesis features clean, uncluttered form. The side line starts from the front wing and runs unbroken along the car’s waistline from headlamp to tail-light. It helps reinforce the limousine effect by lengthening the car.

The Lancia Thesis passenger compartment is luxurious, roomy and protective. The top-quality materials include leather, ultra-soft Poltrona Frau leather, Alcantara and wool, an unusual trim material that brings to mind the famous Lancia cloth trim of the past.
