Distinctive exterior styling; proven engine; available 2+2 layout; more fuel-efficient than many other super-sports cars
The 2014 Lotus Evora is offered in two layouts--as a 2-seater coupe, or as a 2+2 coupe--and in either standard Evora or top-performance Evora S guise. While 2+2 models don't have enough space for adults in back, they do have two seating spaces that can double as storage space.
The Evora is built on a bonded aluminum structure, with a mid-engine layout. There's a double-wishbone front and rear suspension with Eibach springs, front and rear anti-roll bars and hydraulic power steering.
An electromechanical limited-slip differential helps provide traction out of tight corners and under power, while there's also an electronic stability control system and anti-lock braking with Brake Assist to complement the 4-wheel vented disc brakes. Cast alloy wheels (18-inch in front and 19-inch in back) wheels with Pirelli P-Zero performance tires are standard.
All versions of the Evora are powered by a 3.5L Toyota-derived V6; but the engine makes 276 horsepower in the Evora and, with the help of a supercharger, 345 hp in the Evora S. While the Evora can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 163, the Evora S can get to 60 in just 4.4 seconds and to a top speed of 178 mph. Fuel efficiency is the same on either model, though, with quite impressive EPA ratings of up to 19 mpg city, 28 highway.
Evora S models have a few key differences from Evora models. There's a more aggressive rear diffuser, black wing mirror caps and rear light surrounds, as well as an active exhaust system for a sportier sound. A Sports Pack is standard on the Evora S and optional on the Evora, offering multiple modes that allow sharper throttle response, a higher rev limit and intrusive stability control intervention.
On either version of the Evora, you can now get a 6-speed automatic Intelligent Precision Shift 6-speed automatic gearbox. The automatic has four different modes, ranging from normal to aggressive and completely controlled by the steering-wheel paddle-shifters, and the transmission will do rev-matched downshifts with a throttle blip--assuring that the car's composure won't be upset during high-performance driving.
Standard features on the base Evora include keyless entry, air conditioning, Recaro sport seats, a center console with covered storage and a 4-speaker sound system with CD player and auxiliary input.
There's plenty of room for options on the Evora, and most extras are grouped into packages. A Technology Pack adds parking sensors, cruise control and an Alpine navigation system with 6.1-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, HD Radio compatibility, iTunes tagging, and SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility. A Premium Pack adds heated leather seats, accent lighting, leather-trimmed footwell panels and leather for the center armrest. There are several other appearance-oriented packages (a Black Pack, Premium Pack Sport and Premium Suedetex Pack), while standalone-option highlights include a back-up camera and power folding mirrors.
There are no changes to the Lotus Evora lineup for 2014.
As uncompromised sports cars built for the racetrack yet fully road-legal, Lotus sports cars tend to be different than anything else on the market-- the Evora is no exception. It stands out in the market as a nimble, light-driving sports car that's also stable and comfortable enough for highway driving and long trips.
Across the Evora model line, it's more fuel-efficient than might otherwise be expected of a track-oriented performance model, while the Toyota engine assures more durability and reliability than from some other low-volume niche automakers. And in 2+2 form, the Evora is the only mid-engined sports car that can fit more than two people.
