I appears that 99% of medium size cars do not cater for tall passengers in the rear compartment. The Delta was the only car in the Focus/Astra etc. market that offered rear seats that a) moved back/forwards b) reclined. This facility would seem to be a no-brainer. The Delta appears to be the UK equivalent of the Lancia Delta but any link to previous Lancias ends there. The Delta has great styling and masses of room inside compared to the competition. I chose the 1.4 turboJet and whilst not lightning fast is more than adequate if not boy-racing. Not sure on petrol consumption as most driving is town based. Too early to say on reliability (no problems after 1 year) and the first service is after 2 years. Finding a service centre may be challenging for some. I like the Delta (it has that quirky yet distinctive Chrysler styling and interior). It also appears unique - having only seen one other on the road and that was in Amsterdam!
