The Lancia Artena was an automobile manufacturer's Lancia , which was produced from 1931 to 1942. The previous model Lancia Lambda had been replaced by the cheaper Artena and the high-priced Lancia Astura . Slightly above the Artena was the equally motorized intermediate model Lancia Augusta .

The Artena was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1931. As was customary at the time, the car was designed to be fitted with a body by an external body shop, and it was in the upper price segment. The Artena was powered by a V4 engine. The Artena was produced until 1936. It was replaced by the Lancia Aprilia the following year . For the military, however, a final series was issued from 1940 to 1942.
