The '''Blista''' is a minivan featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'' and a 3-door hatchback in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]] ''and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''. It is manufactured by [[Dinka]] in the [[HD Universe]].

The Blista resembles a [[wp:Dodge Caravan#Third generation (1996–2000)|Dodge Caravan (Third Generation)]] in appearance, with the headlights and grille resembling a [[wp:Chrysler Voyager#Fourth generation (2001–2007)|Chrysler Voyager (Fourth Generation)]], 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 [[wp:Honda Odyssey (North America)#First generation (1995–1998)|Honda Odyssey (First Generation)]], even though it has a closer resemblance to the Dodge Caravan).

The Blista returns in [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]], which has been completely redesigned into a three-door hatchback (more specifically, a [[wp:B-segment|B-segment]]), but still retains traits reminiscent of its predecessor, the [[Blista Compact]], with sport coupé styling and elements such as dual exhaust pipes. The Blista is more suited to younger drivers of [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]] due to its compact shape and its sporty design. The Blista is primarily based on both the European and Asian third[[wp:Honda Civic Type R| generation Honda Civic Type R hatchback]], with the front end is loosely derived from a [[wp:Honda Civic|2006-2011 US spec Civic sedan]] for its headlights, and the [[wp:Volkswagen Scirocco#Scirocco R (2009–)|2009- Volkswagen Scirocco R]] for its sides. The Blista also shares styling elements with the [[wp:Honda City|fifth generation Honda City]], [[wp:Honda CR-Z|Honda CR-Z]], [[wp:Honda Jazz|Honda Jazz]] or known as [[wp:Honda Fit|Fit]] and the [[wp:Mazda2|Mazda2]]. The rear mostly resembles the [[wp:Volkswagen Golf Mk6|Volkswagen Golf R]] and [[wp:Mitsubishi Colt|Mitsubishi Colt]] to a lesser extent. The overall shape and size of the car, resembles the [[wp:Toyota Yaris|2006-2013 Toyota Yaris/Vitz]] hatchback, judging by its rounded profile on the roof.

=== 3D Universe ===
The Blista resembles a [[wp:Dodge Caravan#Generation III (1996–2000)|third generation Dodge Caravan LE]] in appearance, with the headlights and grille resembling a [[wp:Chrysler Voyager|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 [[wp:Honda Odyssey (North America)#First generation .281994.E2.80.931998.29|Honda Odyssey]], even though it has a closer resemblance to the Dodge Caravan).
+
The Blista is considerably faster and more agile than its size and appearance would suggest. It is driven by a 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 get the Blista to slide with the handbrake to the point where it looks like drifting.
   
Since most pre-[[GTA IV Era|GTA IV era]] vehicles have unknown manufacturers, it is still unclear what brand the Blista is. However, there are three possibilities:
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
[[File:Blista-GTAV-StatsRSC.png|thumb|Blista stats on [[Rockstar Games Social Club|Social Club]].]]
  +
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 three or four major crashes disabling the car. The car's front engine, front wheel drive configuration causes the car to understeer at speed, which, in an inexperienced driver's hands can be disastrous in a police chase or in a situation where maneuverability is key at speeds.
   
*'''[[Dinka]]''' - There exists a vehicle in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] named the [[Blista Compact]], a small hatchback car (making it a "compact" version of the Blista). This car is made by Dinka, so it may follow that the larger Blista model would also be made by Dinka. The wheels also have Honda logos on them, but that is only because the texures are photos of a wheel from a [[wp:Honda Civic (third generation)|third generation Honda Civic]]. This wheel also appears on every other van.
+
The car's suspension is also somewhat stiff, which, in urban areas creates responsive steering, but off-road, causes the car to rebound off of obstacles and variations in the road surface, making the car unsafe. The low ground clearance also causes an issue if the car is taken out of its comfort zone. Due to the compact size of the car, the wheels can become stuck in the wheel well after a few collisions or a bad landing after a jump.
   
*'''[[Bravado]]''' - The Blista itself is based on a Dodge Caravan, and Bravado is Dodge's counterpart in the GTA universe.
+
Due to all the weight of the car being situated in the front, the car also tend to nose dive after leaving the ground, so in situations like a jump, the driver must be very attentive, because if not, the car will hit the ground nose first and flip uncontrollably.
   
*'''[[Vapid]]''' - In GTA IV, the Blista is absent, but a very similar vehicle named the [[Minivan]] is present. This vehicle, also based on a Dodge Caravan, is manufactured by [[Vapid]].
+
The engine model is very undetailed itself, but the cover appears to be a V8, laid longitudinally and powering the front wheels.
   
During [[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|development of GTA III]], the Blista was originally known as the "'''Space'''".

*Due to a possible coding error, the Blista cannot be picked up by the [[Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard|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.
  +
*The GTA III rendition of the Blista has the same engine noise as the [[Landstalker]], suggesting it to have a large V6, while in LCS, its engine noise is similar to low-performance cars like the [[Manana]], [[Idaho]], [[Perennial]], and the [[Esperanto]], suggesting a smaller V6 or a 4 cylinder diesel.

*The Blista in GTA V is featured in various [[JiffiRent]] adverts in the city, with the quote "See San Andreas in a Jiffi". Oddly, the Dinka logo cannot be seen on the grille of the car in the advertisement, implying that it was a beta model.

* It is possible that the Blista is based on the Piranha, a car featured in ''[http://midnightclub.wikia.com/wiki/Midnight_Club:_Street_Racing Midnight Club: Street Racing]'', another [[Rockstar Games|Rockstar]] game.
  +
* In the [[First-Person View|first person view]], if the player looks down towards the right front wheel and steers, they will notice the wheel actually comes through the inside fascia of the car. This is most likely a minor visual glitch.

For a similarly named vehicle, see Blista Compact.

The Blista is a minivan featured in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and a 3-door hatchback in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It is manufactured by Dinka in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

The Blista resembles a Dodge Caravan (Third Generation) in appearance, with the headlights and grille resembling a Chrysler Voyager (Fourth Generation), 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 (First Generation), even though it has a closer resemblance to the Dodge Caravan).

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

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Blista returns in GTA V, which has been completely redesigned into a three-door hatchback (more specifically, a B-segment), but still retains traits reminiscent of its predecessor, the Blista Compact, with sport coupé styling and elements such as dual exhaust pipes. The Blista is more suited to younger drivers of Los Santos due to its compact shape and its sporty design. The Blista is primarily based on both the European and Asian third generation Honda Civic Type R hatchback, with the front end is loosely derived from a 2006-2011 US spec Civic sedan for its headlights, and the 2009- Volkswagen Scirocco R for its sides. The Blista also shares styling elements with the fifth generation Honda City, Honda CR-Z, Honda Jazz or known as Fit and the Mazda2. The rear mostly resembles the Volkswagen Golf R and Mitsubishi Colt to a lesser extent. The overall shape and size of the car, resembles the 2006-2013 Toyota Yaris/Vitz hatchback, judging by its rounded profile on the roof.

Performance Edit

3D Universe Edit

The Blista is considerably faster and more agile than its size and appearance would suggest. It is driven by a 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 get the Blista to slide with the handbrake to the point where it looks like drifting.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Blista-GTAV-StatsRSC

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 three or four major crashes disabling the car. The car's front engine, front wheel drive configuration causes the car to understeer at speed, which, in an inexperienced driver's hands can be disastrous in a police chase or in a situation where maneuverability is key at speeds.

The car's suspension is also somewhat stiff, which, in urban areas creates responsive steering, but off-road, causes the car to rebound off of obstacles and variations in the road surface, making the car unsafe. The low ground clearance also causes an issue if the car is taken out of its comfort zone. Due to the compact size of the car, the wheels can become stuck in the wheel well after a few collisions or a bad landing after a jump.

Due to all the weight of the car being situated in the front, the car also tend to nose dive after leaving the ground, so in situations like a jump, the driver must be very attentive, because if not, the car will hit the ground nose first and flip uncontrollably.

The engine model is very undetailed itself, but the cover appears to be a V8, laid longitudinally and powering the front wheels.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • Liberty City Memorial Stadium Parking Area in Belleville Park, Staunton Island, Liberty City.
  • Apartment parking area in Wichita Gardens, Shoreside Vale, Liberty City.
  • Spawns frequently in Newport, Rockford, Fort Staunton, and Cedar Grove.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

Blista-Manhunt-front

A Blista in Manhunt 2

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

  • Due to a possible 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.
  • The GTA III rendition of the Blista has the same engine noise as the Landstalker, suggesting it to have a large V6, while in LCS, its engine noise is similar to low-performance cars like the Manana, Idaho, Perennial, and the Esperanto, suggesting a smaller V6 or a 4 cylinder diesel.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

JiffiRentAd-GTAV
  • The Blista in GTA V is featured in various JiffiRent adverts in the city, with the quote "See San Andreas in a Jiffi". Oddly, the Dinka logo cannot be seen on the grille of the car in the advertisement, implying that it was a beta model.
  • It is possible that the Blista is based on the Piranha, a car featured in Midnight Club: Street Racing, another Rockstar game.
  • In the first person view, if the player looks down towards the right front wheel and steers, they will notice the wheel actually comes through the inside fascia of the car. This is most likely a minor visual glitch.
