On at least two of the white cars, rivulets caused by running paint are very clearly visible. You are commenting using your Google account. If you consider that the SM, generally seen as a commercial failure, sold over 13, units in less than 5 years, despite being comfortably over twice the price of the most expensive DS, the C6 figures are very disappointing. Would love Skyhook, which works on the Maserati. The legroom is plentiful, more than enough to sprawl out during a long trip from Rome to Cap Ferrat. Like the good butler, it is keeping its personality, its means of operation, completely hidden.
The aftermarket wheels were horrible but the ride was still good. What really got me, apart from cheap materials described by previous poster, was that the wheelbase was too long for decent handling. All this was done with microchips smaller than your thumbnail. I doubt it was intentional. The theme then was of evocative classicism underpinned by the latest in automotive technology.
The seating for the driver and passengers is superb. But then I thought Vel Satis was fun too. This can send chilled air through lushly damped louvres on the elegantly sculpted dashboard and through vents in the b-pillars.

2002 Lancia Thesis 3.0 V6 Review
thewis And yes, for those looking for ultimate confort, choosing Thesis over S-line Audi or sports suspension BMW would have been wise decision…. All this was done with microchips smaller than your thumbnail. All the panels were joined tightly and the vehicle was well surfaced, apart from an odd depression where the wing to bonnet valley fades into the plastic bumper. That kind of road testing is, in the end, rather pointless except to say that the Thesis, could in extremis, make a good fist of getting you from Zurich to Lausanne decisively ahead of schedule, even if you avoided the motorways.
But what if Lancia had offered a more comfortable, more pleasant alternative? We have a few Kappa articles 6v plus a Trevi test drive. The reasons for its market failure it was the wrong car are not reasons to criticise the car as an ownership proposition. Trevi and Thema owner, are you inclined to view the Thesis as less or more of a Lancia than the duo you have owned — or is that an unfair question? The cheap materials on the outside, I would say much the same about.
Email required Address never made public. So, perhaps I should rewrite the review and leave out all the marketing philosophy.
The clever part was the use of telescopic Esszi adaptive dampers. I grant we have plastic wood. Otherwise a pretty decent car. To this end, Lancia threw enormous resources at the Thesis such that it had its own unique platform and shared no pressings or interior parts with any other Fiat group product. However, the demeanour of the car is more about comfort and refinement.
Lancia Thesis V6 Review – Driven To Write
Utterly reliable — unlike all French cars — ask your friendly breakdown wagon driver, he knows. But that, and almost everything else you might have wanted rather more, is an expensive option. Thanks for calling by!
And thus it lands between a few stools. The Thesis passes the door slam test, by a factor of five.
The aftermarket wheels were horrible but the ride was still good. Its best feature seemed to be you could stand up with your head out of the sunroof and let it park itself. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Car actually put it well — maybe a little generously — in the GBU — like a French Blue Cheese — repels and thesid in equal amounts.
Bad f6 are simply ignored by the Thesis while changes in direction do not provoke annoying body roll.
The diamond shaped headlamps are powerful Xenon units. And they are handled well. Danes are highly risk averse. I must say that I could have written something slightly different a week ago and I could write a review with another angle next week. From Rome to Cap Ferrat would require a stop for fuel after 5 hours.
