Special features for 2010

Closely related to the Elise roadster, the Lotus Exige S is a solid-roof racing-oriented sports car that shines on the track, with excellent grip, handling, braking and overall athletic ability--along with straight-line acceleration that's on par with much more expensive exotics. It's very much a street legal race car, with few compromises that mean all but a small group of enthusiasts will be deterred from everyday driving. Considering that--and the Exige's very cramped interior quarters--very few will end up in driveways but more than a few will do plenty of weekend track time.



With only minor style updates for the new year, the 2010 Lotus Exige maintains its wide array of colors and minimal options. This two-door, two passenger RWD sports car has a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 240 hp from its 6-speed manual transmission. The EPA-estimated fuel economy is estimated at a reasonable 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway. Daytime running lights, keyless entry, driver and passenger airbags along with a tire pressure monitoring system are a few of the standard features.
