Well the time has come for mammy to change her car and this will be her 30th year owning an italian car. This will be the first time since 93 she has the chance to pick from the three makes but she always had a soft spot for the lancias as she had deltas, themas, prismas and y10s so now she has to choose. I am looking for people who have lived with these cars in this country or for helpful opinion and especially towards engines as doesnt drive fast but most of the themas were the turbo ones:)

I'm driving a 1.6 JTDm2 Giulietta Mario, so if you have any questions relevant to that model, I'd be happy to address them. No Bravo experience though, sorry.

I drove the 1.6 jTDm 120Bhp Bravo for a weekend
Loved it.. the car really reved nicely and had lots of power for overtaking, etc..
Also, fuel economy was extremely good considering.. On board computer told me I was doing 48mpg despite the fact I was flooring the throttle every chance I got.

The delta is a lovely car, despite the rebadge. It may have Chrysler as a badge, but you know that heart is true Lancia.

Personally - I prefer the looks of the Guiliette even it's most basic package, but get right wheels on a Bravo, and it can look amazing, and with the right engine, perform pretty incredibly too :)


In all seriousness though - I'd go for the Abarth 500 first and foremost.. Love my wifes 500, just wish it had the 1.4 turbo ;)

Cheers for that as i was driving the 120 bhp alfa this weekend and it is a perfect car but it needs cruise control as it is too easy to speed in it. The 500 is a bit too small for her but the turbo ones are cool as i have a drive booked in a twin air one as i am hearing savage things about it.

I had a bravo hire car for a few weeks a while back, it was a petrol 1.4 I think. It was a nice and comfy car to spin around in. The engine was gutless though and the indicator sometimes didnt self cancel, had a woman pull out in front of me because she thought I was turning into the junction she was pulling out of! Oh they have good brakes too!

i really like the "new" Delta. of the three i think its the best looking car, but Guilietta is probably the best car of the trio.
However if it were my money i'd buy a Delta & stick Lancia badges on it!
