There are a lot of stupid decisions on the Dart. Why did a compact need three different powertrain options, especially considering two of them had similar outputs on paper? Why were two entirely...

Lancia is already dead--the only model left is the Ypsilon, and it's only sold in Italy. I believe 2017 will be the last model year for it there, and then the brand ends.

I really don't see how...
