Betta means 'Hillock' in Kannada language, Karnataka, India.There is Chamundi Betta, Mullaihanagiri Betta, Poly Betta, Ranganathaswamy Betta etc., Usually each Betta is endowed with the dwelling of a god there and the betta is known by that name

The only true advantage is that coupes put out a lot less aerodynamic drag than the civic hatchback, and the type of motor you have

it greatly depends on the year of the hatchback and the delsol they all have their godos and bads.Hatchback from 92-00 is lighter then the 01-new. alot lighter so if you are getting an 01 or newer go with the del sol. if you are going to race them and you dont need to have to much room in the interior go with the del sol. they are 2 seaters and are about 300lbs lighter then the hatch. not much but hey something is something. the only real advantage that hatchback has is that due to the extra weight it gives you a better handleing due to the slight weight increase in the back. you have less of a chance of haveing teh backside slide out from under you making it alittle safer to race. other than the year choice they both come with the same engine options because they both are civics its actually a civic del sol and a civic hatchback. you can get both in standard or automatic. they both have a d-series engine vtec and non vtec. if you find one go with vtec. the d16y8 is the engine code you should be looking for it is the 1.6 liter inline 4 vtec engine.its hard to find but if you can find a 96-97 delsol si then get it. it should come stock with a b16a2 its hard to find because its an EDM european domestic model. the best chance you have is getting teh d16y8 that comes in all civic trims (hatchback, coupe, sedan, and del sol) all in all its just what you think looks better. i have a 98 hatchback right now i wouldnt mind getting a del sol but i wouldnt trade my hatchback for anything. it looks nice slammed and its light as hell compared to the coupe and sedan. only real thing in like more on the del sol is the targa top dont really like that its a 2 seater so i went with my hatch.

its all how you build the car. the 90's hatchback is about 300lbs lighter then the Del sol. the engine stock has about 20hp less the the Del sol (unless the Del sol has a b series). so it all up to you which one would end up better...

preferably a prelude but since it's not on there go with a del sol there not seen around as much as the civic, however there are more parts available for customizing the civic i think the del sol would be a better choice.
