On the exterior, the new Delta S by MomoDesign is distinguished by new side skirts and a new bumper in the same color as the rest of the body, "dark-chrome" finishes, burnished headlights and a set of 18-inch wheels, featuring dark shadow treatment. On the rear, you will also notice a new exhaust system with twin chrome pipes and a tailgate in gloss black.

The new special edition will also introduce two new colors to the lineup: a metallic Antracite Grey and Antracite Grey/Eclissi Black two-tone.

The new Delta S by Momodesign is offered with one of three different propulsion units: a 1.4 Turbo Jet delivering a total of 120 horsepower, a 1.4 Turbo Jet LPG engine with 120 horsepower or a 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet.

Mazda6 Tourer

Mazda6 Tourer, which is not available in the U.S. is by far our first choice in its segment of market. Starting with a great look and up with a highly equipped interior - there is nothing we do not like about the Japanese model. It is powered by a choice of four engines: a 2.0-liter delivering 145 PS (143 horsepower), a 2.0-liter with 165 PS (162 horsepower), a 2.2-liter diesel with 150 PS (147 horsepower) and a 2.2-liter diesel with 175 PS (172 horsepower). UK customers can buy it at a starting price of £22,545 (€26,656 / $34,349).

Ford Focus Five-Door

Until recently, the Ford Focus wasn’t much of a player in the five-door hatch market, but things have changed once the new generation arrived on the market and Ford proved one more time what amazing cars it can develop. In the UK, the Focus Five Door has a slew of engines to choose from, starting at a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 85 PS (83 horsepower) all the way up to a 2.0-liter TDCi four-cylinder with 163 PS (160 horsepower). Prices for these models range from £13,995 (€16,482 / $21,322 to £24,905 (€29,330 / $37,945)

Then again, if you’re feeling really frisky, you could opt for the Focus ST five-door or Estate, which start out at £21,995 (€25,903 / $33,425) and caps out at £26,595 (€31,321 / $40,416). For this price, you get a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine with 250 PS (246 horsepower) and 360 Nm (265 pound-feet) of torque. This will net you a 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 6.5 seconds, crushing the Delta S in both speed and base price.

The Delta S by MOMODESIGN can be ordered starting today. It is the new special series created from the renewed collaboration of two brands world-renowned for having contributed to the development of Italian design.

Intended for a male metropolitan customer looking for a distinctive style, the new version further enhances the personality of the model by proposing a number of aesthetic and chromatic interventions that reflect the stylistic features of the products designed by MOMODESIGN Centro Stile: ranging from helmets, watches, eyewear and shoes to luggage.

In keeping with its new sporty soul, the Lancia Delta S by MOMODESIGN offers a wide range of high-performance engines. To start with the 190 HP 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet, the engine at the top of its category owing to its out-and-out sporty performance. Room has also been made for the 120 HP 1.6 MultiJet, a perfect example of the ’downsizing’ construction philosophy that combines brilliant torque with low consumption, and 120 HP 1.4 Turbo Jet LPG, the only Turbo LPG engine in its category, eco-friendly but agile, with a range of over 1,400 km. Completing the offer is the 120 HP 1.4 Turbo Jet, the Turbo petrol engine boasting low running costs.

Prices start from 23,400 Euros for the 120 HP 1.4 Turbo Jet version, then go up to 25,400 Euros for the 120 HP 1.4 Turbo Jet LPG engine and reach 26,400 Euros for the top of the range versions equipped with the two MultiJet turbodiesel engines: 190 HP 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet and 120 HP 1.6 MultiJet.

A statement of top Italian style, the Lancia Delta S by MOMODESIGN plays with colour contrasts, emphasises the value of detail, offers elegant interiors and expresses an energetic and dynamic personality. On the outside, it is distinguished by some bold aesthetic features: side skirts and bumper in the same shade as the body, ’dark-chrome’ finishes, burnished headlights, 18" rims finished with dark shadow treatment, twin chrome exhaust pipe and gloss black tailgate. On this one the logo ’S’ shines, the symbol that identifies the new special series and synthesizes its positioning based on three main values: Style, Substance and sports Seduction.

In addition, on the new Delta S by MOMODESIGN two new colours are making their début - the metallic Antracite Grey and Antracite Grey/Eclissi Black two-tone - that will be added to the available colours for this new version: Zenit White, Magma Black and the Zenit White/Eclissi Black two-tone.

The same stylistic elegance has been given to the interior, enhanced by the gloss black central console, speedometer with yellow shades and special sporty leather and fabric seats with blue stitching (the same also found on the steering wheel, gear lever gaiter, handbrake lever and door panels). Therefore, the new version is a concrete example of how an "automotive object" can be reinterpreted in an aesthetic key by MOMODESIGN, combining the feisty and distinctive character of the Milan brand and highlighting the expressive features that have always distinguished Lancia - elegance and temperament, mixed today with a touch of sportiness.

All this is made even more interesting by the generous standard equipment, including cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, electrically operated mirrors, leather steering wheel with music controls and front armrest.

The engine that best enhances the sporting soul of the new S by MOMODESIGN special series is the 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet, the most powerful engine in its class, with a maximum power output of 190 HP and a peak torque of 400 Nm at 2,000 rpm. This means record performances, such as a top speed of 222 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. The car’s excellent performance is the result of exciting technological innovations, like the twin turbochargers (hence the name Twin Turbo): a compact one with low inertia to ensure ready, vigorous response from low rpm and a bigger one to deliver greater power. It should be noted that the high power delivery (approximately 100 HP/litre) is a value so far reserved for out-and-out sporty petrol engines. Even more appealing is that it comes with no less than 300 Nm of torque at just 1250 rpm: this translates into extreme responsiveness of the 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet to everything demanded by the driver and allows a truly satisfying drive to be obtained in all situations. Finally, thanks to a special promotion which puts it on offer at the same price as the 1.6 MultiJet 120 HP - list price 26,400 euros - the 1.9 Twin Turbo MultiJet 190 HP offers the best list price/power ratio in the category.
