This article is about the family minivan in the 3D universe and the compact hatchback in GTA V. If you are looking for the Honda-based hatchback, see Blista Compact. "Blista" also refers to a car in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars similar to the aforementioned hatchback. The GTA Chinatown Wars Blista is covered under the Blista Compact article.

The Dinka Blista was originally a minivan in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The Blista returns in Grand Theft Auto V and is completely redesigned as a compact two-door hatchback, which is more suited to the younger drivers in Los Santos.

Description

Design

3D Universe

The Blista resembles a third generation Dodge Caravan LE in appearance, with the headlights and grille resembling a fourth generation Chrysler Voyager, depicted as a modern minivan in contrast to the older Moonbeam. Despite the Blista's minivan design, it can only accommodate three passengers and one driver, the same as any four-door vehicle. Its name, rather unpleasantly, sounds like a portmanteau of the words "blister" and possibly "Honda" (probably referring to the Honda Odyssey, even though it has a closer resemblance to the Dodge Caravan).

During development of GTA III, the Blista was originally known as the "Space".

HD Universe

The Blista is completely redesigned from its previous iterations, but still retains traits reminiscent of its predecessor, the Blista Compact, with sport coupé styling and dual exhaust pipes. The Blista is now a 2-door hatchback, similar to the Dilettante. The Blista can be modified at Los Santos Customs or Beeker's Garage, with aesthetic modifications such as bumpers, colors, wheels or performance improvements. The Blista is more suited to younger drivers of Los Santos due to its compact shape and its sporty design. The Blista shares styling elements with cars such as the Honda Civic Hatchback , Mazda2, Honda Fit Aria, the third generation Volkswagen Scirocco. The rear of the Blista resembles too to the 2012 Renault Clio . The overall shape of the Blista resembles that of the 3rd generation Toyota Yaris hatchback.

Performance

3D Universe

The Blista is considerably faster and more agile than its size and appearance would suggest. It is driven by a large V6 in a front wheel drive layout. This leads to a degree of understeer at higher speeds, but less than one would expect for a vehicle of its size. Remarkably, its handling statistics are very similar to the Kuruma and Taxi, two agile, front wheel drive sedans. It is possible to drift the Blista, even though it is FWD.

HD Universe

This car has a lot more power than its relatively small body shape would suggest, with a top speed close to that of the Buffalo, and parring the Issi with handling performance. Its light body frame however doesn't cope with collisions as well as most vehicles, with 3 or 4 major crashes causing the car to blow up.

Trivia

Blista-Manhunt-front

A Blista in Manhunt 2.

  • The default radio station for the Blista is:
  • Due to what may be a coding error, the Blista cannot be picked up by the crusher in GTA III; the game responds with "Crane cannot lift this vehicle.", despite the crane having no trouble lifting a Coach into the crusher. In GTA Liberty City Stories, the Blista is able to be crushed, although the crane cannot pick up larger vehicles. This, however, can be fixed on PC version by tweaking files.
  • A vehicle resembling the Blista can be found in Rockstar North's Manhunt 2, but the front end is now more reminiscent of a Chrysler PT Cruiser.
  • In Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian, "Blista" is translated as "It's shining".
  • The GTA III rendition of the Blista has the same engine noise as the Landstalker, while in LCS, its engine noise is similar to low-performance cars like the Manana, Idaho, Perennial, and the Esperanto.
  • The Blista is one of two vehicles that does not appear in other GTA games (GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas). The other being the Kuruma.
  • The beta name for the Blista in GTA V might have been Jiffi, since there are ads featuring the Blista and the quote "See San Andreas in a Jiffi".
