It seems that car shows have been once a week since the start of 2012 with new models and concept vehicles coming out of the woodwork. Well Lotus has quietly released it’s 2012 Lotus Evora S. It was first spotted at the 2012 New York Auto Show with barely any press information. Now it is starting to hit dealerships and it actually does have some significant changes for the 2012 model year.
Lotus was never one to bandy about with luxurious interiors, but the previous Evora was down right bare. Now Lotus has upgraded them somewhat with new padded leather for the door sills and panels, the brushed metal dash has lost its blinding glare with a dark look, the Recaro seats have been redone with better padding and much of the cockpit now has a nice piping throughout. The Evora also sports a new Pioneer audio/nav system instead of the dreadful Alpine setup from previous models. It finally appears that Lotus has caught on that the people that drive their cars might just want to enjoy a little comfort while taking some nice S curves.
