Elige are not at all like other cars. They were, and are, as close to no-frills, no-compromises hand-built competition vehicle platforms for the road as you will find for the $$. I've owned and driven many other very small roadster/sub-compact sporty vehicles over the years that have reputations for "go cart-like" handling and comportment. Compared to my Elise, they are like driving big tubs of mush.
Yeah, they're different.
