What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Exige provides outstanding grip and a sensational drive

Against It’s impractical for everyday motoring and noisy at speed

Verdict It's not everyone's cup of tea, but on B-roads, the Exige is a blast

Go for… The Series II, launched in 2004

Avoid… Cars that have spent too long on trackdays

Lotus Exige Coupe
  • 1. Ask the seller about what the car has been used for, and about any damage or repairs
  • 2. The brake discs need changing every 10,000 miles, the clutch soon after and the suspension needs to be regularly overhauled
  • 3. Take time to check out the seating position. The steering rack doesn’t adjust, so make sure you can get comfortable
  • 4. Practicality? You must be joking - storage space is virtually non-existent
  • 5. On early cars, fuel can leak from the petrol tank during cornering
