General info

1.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Lotus Elise (2014)
Lotus Evora (2014)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Lotus Elise (2014)
Lotus Evora (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Lotus Elise (2014)
Lotus Evora (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
4.CO2 emissions

149g/km

217g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
5.drivetrain warranty (years)

3yrs

3yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
6.basic warranty (years)

3yrs

3yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

1.height

1.12m

1.23m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

3.82m

4.35m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.width

1.72m

1.85m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.wheelbase

2.3m

2.58m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

Speed

1.top speed

204km/h

262km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

6.5s

5s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
3.coefficient of drag

0.41Cd

0.33Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

160Nm

350Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.engine size

1.6l

3.5l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.horsepower

134hp

276hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

4

6

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.fuel economy (highway)

5l/100 km

7.1l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.fuel economy (combined)

6.3l/100 km

9.3l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Lotus Elise (2014)
Lotus Evora (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
