For It combines strong performance with wonderful agility and a surprisingly comfortable ride.

Against The gearshift and rear visibility are awful, and interior quality isn’t good enough.

The Lotus Evora is thrilling to drive, but Porsche’s Cayman also excels in this area, and it’s both cheaper to buy and easier to live with.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

As well as being treated to an exciting life, Lotus Evora buyers will also be treated to an easy one. Why? Well, there are only two decisions to make.

All Evoras get the same 3.5-litre V6 engine, so it’s simply a matter of whether you want the standard 276bhp engine or the supercharged 346bhp unit. Then you have to select whether you want two seats or a two-plus-two layout.

There’s just one trim level, which includes air-conditioning, Recaro leather seats and a CD player. Having said that, there are some optional extras and packs you can add to make your car sportier or more luxurious.

The Sport Upgrade Pack provides a switchable sports mode that sharpens the throttle response, increases the rev limit and activates a special setting for the traction control, while the Tech Pack gives you sat-nav, Bluetooth, rear parking sensors and cruise control. The first of these packs is standard on the S, while both are included in the Sports Racer upgrade.
