Report Lotus SUV or 2+2 Coupe in Lotus / Motoring / Cars Chat Posted June 2, 2017 I think it probably has to be the SUV - they're not going away any time soon! I think they really, really have their work cut out as to where to position it on the market, though! Assuming it's heavily based on someone else's underpinnings, I can't see it being exceptionally light for its class. I'll be very intrigued to see what size it ends up being, to be honest. The Mazda CX-5 is only 1500kg, just 85 kg more than the Evora 400. Make it sporty - which it would have to be, bearing the Lotus moniker - and it's up against the Macan or Cayenne, neither of which I like (I'm just not an SUV fan at all!) but there's no doubt they're highly regarded and have the kinds of interiors everyone would expect in an SUV at those kinds of price points. I'd love to see a 2+2 coupe; I think they'd have a better chance producing a Panamera rival. I'm sure they'd win the looks battle before pen even touched paper!
