for daily use

Storage is vital in a sports car and Emira’s cabin has been exceptionally well thought out. It has central cup holders and door bins that can accommodate a 500ml bottle. Practicality also comes from the glovebox, trinket tray ahead of the gearstick and a central stowage area beneath the armrest between the seats with USB-A, USB-C and 12v ports.

Luggage or other large items can be stored behind the seats or in the boot to the rear of the engine. This space will take a standard-sized flight case or a set of golf clubs. The combined luggage space is 359 litres.
