Early impressions on the Chrysler delta 1.6 SR diesel
CHRYSLER DELTA 1.6 M-Jet SR 5dr (Review date: 17th January '14)
I bought this car at 18 months old for 9 grand, I pondered other cars over the last few months and started to agitate myself by keep chopping and changing. Originally I had my heart set on a Jaguar XF, but to suit my budget I would have had to settle for a 4/5 year old car with at least 60,000 miles on the clock. I was also looking for something with decent mpg so started to go cold on this and became attracted to the Alfa romeo guilietta 2 litre veloce would have come in at 13 grand for a 30 month old car with 18,000 miles on the clock and by the way the guillietta ticked all boxes for me, looking for a family car with 5 doors and a bit of style. I was all prepared to buy the guillietta but still browsed other alternatives such as the Honda civic and then the doubt crept in until I stumbled upon the Chrysler delta, 4 grand cheaper, 1 year newer and the same mileage as the guillietta. My internet then went into overload. My research told me it is a Lancia delta with a Chrysler badge built on a Fiat bravo platform. One review sums up my opinion beautifully, the style of a Alfa romeo for the price of a Fiat. Of course with any car there are negatives, as nice as the car is inside there is plastic where chrome would have made it a delicious car throughout, however the seats are lovely and had the finishing touches been chrome I would have had to pay a lot more than the 9 grand I paid. If you like it check the plastic on the steering wheel and radio section and provided you're happy with that then buy, you'll love it for the money. By the way if I was buying new, I would go for the guillietta, it is the second hand price that is great value. I have no regrets whatsoever in buying this car and feel I have discovered a gem a lot of people are not aware of which I always like something a little bit different. Yes it would be nice to have the Lancia badge but the badge does not make the car.
CHRYSLER DELTA 1.6 M-Jet SR 5dr (Review date: 23rd February '13)
Bought this car after looking at Fiat Bravo and Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the Lancia (sold as a Chrysler in the UK!) is a lot roomier, rear seats that move backwards and forwards and recline. I use it almost daily for a 22 mile trip into London, it averages 40 to 55mpg depending on how heavy the right foot is! I bought the car June 2012 for £12,800, 9 months old and 4300 miles, it has to date, Feb13, done 15600 miles, over 3000 in 3 weeks last September, faultless!! £100 road fund license, £179 insurance. I've changed the front grill, wheel hubcaps and rear window badge to Lancia. Comfortable suspension, great road holding, adequate 1.6 D engine, I did consider the 2ltr. Seating is good, driving position excellent, ventilation and air-con work well, very pleased with this car, would recommend it highly, especially if you like something different!!
