The idea of a Lotus SUV must be disconcerting to some, but nevertheless, the brand is moving forward with a sporty crossover to rival the Porsche Cayenne. Being a Lotus, the forthcoming SUV will certainly prioritize low weight compared to other performance crossovers, and it will be the brand’s first front-engined vehicle since the 1996 Elan. It will also be the first four-wheel-drive Lotus. Styling is clearly inspired by the Evora, including kicked-up rear quarter glass and similar headlights.
