The Lotus Emira is a very important car for Lotus. It makes a decent fit for being the British alternative for the Porsche 718 Cayman. Moreover, it has amazing interior and exterior features, which rival the Porsche cars. 

There are a lot of stakes on the Lotus Emira. For starters, it is the first new Lotus in over a decade. Secondly, it is a start of a brand new era for the company, one that features investment where it counts the most. 

Engine and Performance

When it comes to the performance, Lotus Emira doesn’t disappoint. It features a 3.6-liter V6 engine with a manual gearbox. Moreover, the engine is supercharged and produces 400 bhp and 420 Nm of torque, so the performance is excellent. It accelerates from 0 to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds. However, the automatic model takes 4.2 seconds. Moreover, the top speed of both versions is 180mph. 

The manufacturers have sourced the V6 engine from Toyota and it’s an amazing, reliable motor. So, it sounds great and reverses easily. The auto box is available as an option. Moreover, the upcoming four-cylinder version will have a dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard.

The manufacturers designed the Lotus Emira to be a comfortable, usable, less hardcore sports car. However, the comfort has come at the cost of handling powress. 

The interior seats are quite spacious. Moreover, the seats are heated, adjustable, and quite comfortable. The good news, for people who have experienced Lotus cars before, is that the entry and exit from the vehicle don’t require one to be specially trained for it. So, if you are looking for a fun sports car to drive regularly, Emira should be your top choice.

Reliability and Safety

The Emira’s V6 engine is a Toyota unit, which means that it is quite reliable, even with the Lotus’s supercharger set-up. Moreover, the spare parts are easy to get. They don’t cost much because many other cars have a similar engine. 

Lotus Emira has a lightweight but strong structure and high-quality suspension, brakes, and tires. So, it is quite a safe car to drive. However, the car hasn’t been crashed and tested by Euro NCAP because it is a low-volume sports car. 


The price of Lotus Emira V6 is around $95,000. For more information, visit the Galpin Lotus website. 

Lotus Emira is a very special car. It has an amazing design, and an interior that’s way better in quality than any of its predecessors. So, if you want a comfortable car for daily use, the Lotus Emira is the perfect choice for you.
