General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Lotus Exige S Roadster (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.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
Lotus Exige S Roadster (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.
3.CO2 emissions

236g/km

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

2yrs

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.
5.basic warranty (years)

2yrs

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.
6.Euro NCAP rating

5

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.17t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.length

4.08m

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

1.8m

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

1.13m

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

2.37m

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).
6.ground clearance

115mm

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

4s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

233km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.coefficient of drag

0.41Cd

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

400Nm

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.Has a turbocharged engine
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
3.fuel economy (combined)

10.1l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.fuel economy (highway)

7.6l/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.
5.horsepower

345hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
6.fuel economy (city)

14.5l/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.

Features

1.number of airbags

2

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
2.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
3.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has smart key as standard
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
