It's quirky. I Like quirky so in my eyes that makes it cool.

Can someone post up the Citroen DS5 too - I want to vote on that

Spooky likeness to the dreaded PT Cruiser from frt 3/4 view but I like it . Even more if it was was wider (not Fiat 500 based)

Love the Y10 . My first car and replaced it with a new Y10 Lxie , one of the few new ones registered in the UK in 1990!

aww yes I like the y10 facelift as well. I have owned about 5 Y10's. a fire, touring, lx and two turbo's. My little turbo is not on the road sadly. He is cwtched away in a garage..I miss driving him. Fantastic handling but leans a lot and looks scary from outside the car.

It's a Lancia, and it's small and rare as rocking horse turds, very cool!

The narrow vertical grill and bonnet with fenders configuration is reminiscent of the other Chrysler.

I see now what you mean. However, it's just a tiny resemblance. And the Ypsilon is much prettier.

Lancia has a long and proud tradition of beautifully engineered, often elegant cars.

This, however looks cack and is uncool on all sorts of levels.

The similarity to the Chrysler Crossfire's "doggy dumping" rear end is chief among them.

At least the Giulietta is Italian while the Ypsilon is as Polish as the Fiat which comes from the same factory.
