Delica Star Wagon

1986

Delica Star Wagon

In June 1986 the Delica series underwent its third full model change, the first in seven years. When development work on the third-generation series began in the spring of 1983 there was a proposal to create a semi-cab-over engine body which would improve impact safety and allow a walk-through but the design team eventually decided to retain the full cab-over-engine configuration of the previous generations for its superior space efficiency. The new Delica Star Wagon's monocoque body structure was chosen for its safety and durability. The more rounded "soft cube" styling put the emphasis on space efficiency. To a "Living room on wheels" theme, Delica Star Wagon was fitted with multi-seat, multi-audio and multi-climate control systems and was available with the first Crystal Lite Roof in its class, enhancing further the light, airy and open ambience to the interior. The 2.0 L engine and 2.5 L dieselturbo engine delivered brisk and feel-good performance both on and off road. The Delica Star Wagon 4WD, introduced in 1982 as Japan's first four-wheel drive one-box minivan, featured an upgraded equipment specification worthy of its status as the series' image leader. To firmly establish its position as the leading cab-over four-wheel drive engine in its category, Delica Star Wagon 4WD sported full-feature off-road performance together with improved comfort. In October 1988 an automatic transmission trim level was added to the four-wheel drive lineup.
