A proper sports car, full of sensation. The Lotus Elise demands dedication for day-to-day use, but it’s worth the effort

get the best price

Trim: Sport

This car is about excitement rather than comfort, so whichever version you buy, you'll get a similarly miserly amount of kit, which includes alloy wheels, central locking, a leather steering wheel and a CD player. There's a variety of option packs to fill the gaps, but you'll still pay more on top if you want to add air-conditioning.,

Engine: 1.8

The more powerful 1.8 engine can propel the Elise from 0 to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds, and on to a blustery top speed of 145mph. It's tremendous fun and has more than enough urge for speedy and safe overtaking.
