Review
I have owned many cars, Fiat Stilo, Alfa Romeo GT, 159 and 156. This has honestly got to be the worst car I have ever had the misery of owning. It is that bad over any sort of bump I generally feel silly for buying the car. I do not like to admit to people that I have purchased something so bad, I pretend to family and friends that I actually like it. Plastics feel very cheap, and the radio does not function very well. I actually paid the deposit for this car before ever test driving one so I had no option but to buy this. I maybe a little harsh on this car, however I am used to quality cars such as the Fiat Stilo. I hope (Lancia (Fiat Group) Chrysler build more cars like the original Delta in the near future. If I could I would purchase a brand new Fiat Stilo, however I am thinking I should have perhaps got a Fiat Bravo instead. The car is not as big as I thought it would be, yes it does have plenty of room in the back for passengers, however I was comparing it to bigger cars such as the Qashqai. I find the boot not very practicable because of the massive lid, style wise yes I likey like!!! I think I was just expecting a little to much from this car, as I have always liked cheap Italian cars.

Looks? Love or hate but I love it its different and that can only be good. Performance - 9 sec 0-60 126 top end (irrelevant but allows you the flexibility around 60 - 80 and it pulls very well above this. Better than the vw 1.4 TSI engine! I know. Equipment- Beats focus, Golf and Astra hands down Space - see above New - sadly Its priced well but rare, none about, so would never buy one new but used?.....Nothing out there to touch it. I am an ex Octavia owner so have driven the best in class for the last 3.5 yrs 09 - 13. This Delta is the best I have ever owned. Golf/Focus/Astra owners.......the next time you lose your car in the car park you will understand...
