 Pros Improved engine, performance, specifications from current Elise model

 Pros An ingress/egress design that allows for maximum interior space

 Pros Recognizable brand. With the Lotus name built around innovation and quality the car should live up to its brands reputation. This will also make for a high resale value.

 Pros The start/stop feature will conserve energy

 Pros Being a partial hybrid it will be relatively eco-friendly and produce emissions of less than 150g/kg of CO2.

 Cons The start/stop feature has not been tested. It is a new feature to Lotus models and with a complex method of starting and stopping so frequently if it does not perform the vehicle performance and reputation will be greatly affected

 Cons With the car not being released to the public until 2015 safety and crash tests are still being performed and are not available to the public

 Cons There has been nothing released to the public regarding interior specifications such as stereo system, navigation, Bluetooth, ipod accessibility and interior color or material.

 Cons The improved design and specifications of the 2015 Lotus Elise Coupe comes at a costly $16,000 more than the current base model

 Cons With the car being a completely new design and not just a continuation of the current model its design and specifications have not been intensely tested or customer reviewed.
