In 1979 Lancia unveiled the all-new Delta. It was the brand's first truly compact hatchback. The model did not have a real predecessor, although you could call the Beta a kind of predecessor. The design came from the Italian designer Giugiaro, while the technique was largely taken over from the Fiat Ritmo proposed in 1978. However, the car got a different rear suspension. The engines were also adjusted and delivered more power than in the Ritmo. The model only came with five doors, although Lancia came in 1982 with the Lancia Prisma, which was in fact nothing more than a Delta sedan with a different name.
