The Dinka Blista is a type of Compact Vehicle featured in GTA 5. The Blista is primarily based on the 2nd 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 Dinka Blista also shares styling elements with the 5th generation Honda City, Honda CR-Z 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 Toyota Yaris/Vitz hatchback, judging by its rounded profile on the roof. The Dinka Blista can be modified at Los Santos Customs or Beeker’s Garage with aesthetic modifications such as bumpers, wheels, colors, or performance improvements. The Blista is more suited to younger drivers of Los Santos due to its compact shape and its sporty design.
The Dinka Blista has a lot more power than its relatively small body shape would suggest, with a top speed close to that of the Bravado Buffalo, and parring the Weeny 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 disasterous in a police chase or in a situation where manueverability is key at speeds. The car’s suspension is also somewhat stiff, which, in urban areas creates responsive steering, but offroad, 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 Dinka Blista 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.
