The Ypsilon received an update of half of life a few months ago, which turned to be tested by EuroNCAP. The results were frustrares, since only managed to get two stars.
But that was not all, as the Lancia Ypsilon ended the test with another problem. Just a few moments after the frontal impact test, occurred a fire in the engine compartment, due to a short circuit produced by the battery, when in contact with the fluid-brake fluid, .
