The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the distance between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Mitsubishi has 196 mm longer wheelbase distance in relation to Lotus Esprit. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Hence, the mass of Mitsubishi Sapporo III should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
The Mitsubishi Sapporo III is 7 % longer in relation to the Lotus Esprit 2.2 S3 162HP. Long vehicles have roomy cabin and usually provide more storage space. Although the Mitsubishi Sapporo III 2.3 124HP seems to be better option for families or persons who love the idea of soft, smooth long-distance rides that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Lotus Esprit 2.2 S3 162HP may appeal to city drivers because it will not cause troubles with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Number of doors
For people that appreciate a vehicle for more than two persons the four-door Mitsubishi Sapporo III is a way appropriate to use. But for drivers that are looking for better look of the car we suggest choosing the two-door Lotus Esprit 2.2 S3 162HP.
Model release date
Manufacture of the older car began 7 years prior to Lotus Esprit 2.2 S3 162HP hence man may suspect that this vehicle features significantly less modern parts used.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater capacity of loading massive amount of thinks to it. The difference at the level of 20 percent in favor of the Mitsubishi is little and should not be really noticeable.
