Benefits of Driving a 2010 Lotus Elise Convertible

The Lotus Elise has been available in Europe for more than a decade, while the U.S. had to wait until 2005 for the roadster to hit American shores. In the years since, little has changed for the Elise racer. People who buy the Elise are interested in a track car that can occasionally be driven in town. It is lightweight outside and in, and is not intended for casual use. But, when used properly, the Elise provides intense handling and super-car responsiveness. The 4-cylinder Toyota-sourced engine inside the 2010 Elise provides reliability and surprising fuel economy at 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. All this performance comes at a modest starting price of $47,250.

What's new for 2010?

There are no changes of note for the 2010 Lotus Elise, other than the availability of a new Elise Performance Package. It includes 2009's Touring Package options plus sport seats, Alcantara upholstery, traction control, dual oil coolers, removable hard top, sport dampers, sport springs, performance tires and harness bar, all for about $3,600.

Model Strengths

  • Distinctive roadster styling
  • lightweight with no-frills
  • excellent fuel economy
  • a fun weekend racer

Model Review

The Elise is a track-ready car with minimal interior comforts, nearly no cargo space and a rock-hard suspension. It's also one of the fastest, best-handling cars available. It offers supercar acceleration and handling in a striking design. The base Elise gets to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and the SC trim is a tenth of a second slower, but has a smoother power curve, making it slightly more drivable day-to-day.
