Lotus Elise

Price $54,985
Fuel consumption 8.7 – 11.8 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 52%(view ratings)
For those who enjoy a sporty driving experience while maintaining a good sense of control, the Lotus Elise remains a sensible choice. The absence of electronic assistance means this is an automobile that handles like a race car model. Certainly less interesting for daily use, the Elise is powered by a 190 horsepower 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine. It is its weight/power ratio that makes it an exciting car to drive.
