1996 Lancia Delta Reviews
1996 Lancia Delta HPE GT VVT 1.8 16v VVT from Belgium
Smooth Italian racer
But the variator of the valves is beginning to make a diesel sound, so it is going to go out. To replace this piece, you have to change your cam belt and tensioner etc, so heavy cost.
I drove one time with a frozen handbrake, which led to the changing of the rear brakes.
Recaro alcantara seats are great, but wear fast.
The engine is very smooth, and gives a lot of low end torque for a 1.8.
When you want, you can rev it higher, then the VVT starts working and it will go fast.
Not a super GTI performer; 130hp for 1200kg, but you won't be beaten either by snails.
Recaro interior/seats are great.
Dash has a lot of gauges; oil temp etc.
Paint is still great, even my red one.
Brakes are good.
I have lowered it 3cm Eibach.
MS Design Evo 500 body kit.

1996 Lancia Delta LS 5-door 2.0 HF turbo from Greece
A good Grand Tourismo 5-door bargain
The vapor circuit resulted in many malfunctioning control valves.
Alcantara seats were corroded soon.
The air recirculation motor was changed 3 times.
High consumption, could be lower.
Complicated engine based on the old Integrale's one. The factory could use higher technology.
Medium quality finishing.
No 2nd airbag.
Great brakes, great acceleration, great handling. It makes you move in quick rhythms, but with safety at the same time.
Comfortable for a small family that travels much, or for singles who like sports driving, but not expensive selections.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
