Evora prices post Emira launch

Elan are up to £50k, most 25k to 40k, in UK but still value considering how important a car they are. 

I should buy one but S1 Elise is so perfect, I am not sure I would use Elan 26 enough.

I think one thing we now know is that the Emira is unlikely to be any quicker in a straight line than a 400-on Evora. I can fully understand the owners of those cars being a little hesitant to switch to the new model on that basis. That doesn’t mean they won’t make the jump when any uprated Emira joins the line-up later on. There could well be a stampede for that one!

If you are an Evora S1 owner, then the Emira should be a step up in performance and worth the investment.

Also, looking ahead, what impact will these thousands of new Emiras have on the servicing capacity of our dealers? There will be quite a magnitude of increased demand from end 2022 onwards.

Of course you are assuming that speed is the only differentiator. Personally think the Emira is a way better looking car than the Evora (inside and out) which will be a factor for many.

No I personally agree with you 100%, but there will be others who think differently. There’s no doubt that the Emira is selling by the bucket load on its looks and what appears to be keen pricing. None of us have driven it yet, so driving impressions are non existent.

Who is this aimed at? I haven’t watched any jayemm video, since he collected his yellow Evora 400 from JCT and came on here to show us all those years ago!

Do you mean James. He who turned up at our meetings, proceeded to re arrange them for us. Told us what’s what, and then vanished like a fart in the wind.... that Jayemm?

I'll take AEB and eye tracking DMS if they are on offer. They have zero impact on my day to day life except for if something goes wrong, in which case they might just save it.

Lane departure, coffee cup warnings and the like can go swivel though.

This is kind of where I am at and probably somewhat had to do with my initial disappointment in the Emira. To me the move from my 400 to the Emira feels like a more horizontal move, based on the current performance numbers we have been given. I might drive me 400 1 or 2 days a week during the driving time of year. For 4 or 5 months of the year it sits because of winter. So while the tech and improved looks are very nice, its still hard to justify right now without also seeing a performance jump. I am sure they will get there eventually with the Emira and maybe that day is the day I put in my order.

 

 

That's me.  I want to know more about the development arc planned for the Emira.   I'm looking for the one without the power seats!  I want the tech though and it's gorgeous.    Brilliant if they can keep it aspirational.  It's exciting, can't wait to see a real one.  .

The car we had previously was a 2015 Honda Accord. The Australian version. The active cruise control would brake quite fiercely if someone moved into the gap that was left between our car and the car in front.

Collision avoidance would brake fiercely because it had to if the driver was not paying attention. We never had that trigger.

Lane departure was not bad and was not disconcerting. If you veered to far over toward a line, the wheel gently pulled the other way. Knowing that it would happen, it was never a cause for concern. The wheel also registers driver input and alerts you if it does not sense driver input after a period of time.

We now have a 2019 Skoda Karoq and the difference in the way these functions operate on it is streets ahead of the Honda. The fierce braking based on a vehicle entering the camera view on a bend on a freeway is gone. The fierce braking that would occur when a car pulls into the set distance from the car in front is also gone.

Much smarter coding in this car's systems. As the car remembers the state that any of these systems are in when the ignition is turned off, it starts with this systems in the same state, so there is no need to turn them off each time.

Massively friendly and nice to use when we drove from Geelong to Sydney, or even from Geelong to Melbourne.

The Karoq also has an electric parkbrake which is also very easy to use. When I first bumped into them in Holdens in 2015, they were bloody horrible.

This Skoda is possibly the best car that Liz and I have ever owned.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
