For 2018, the Lexus RC 300 and RC 350 models get five more horsepower. Lexus has also increased the size of the infotainment screen to 10.3 inches, added onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi and improved the F Sport’s Drive Mode Select system with a custom mode. The Lexus Safety System+, which includes multiple driver aids, is now standard.
Triple-beam LED headlights are made available on the RC 350, while the RC 350 RWD (rear-wheel drive) gains Yamaha suspension dampers as standard equipment. The RC F adds a new Linear Adaptive Variable Suspension system. Standard Scout GPS link allows smartphone navigation to be viewed through the car’s infotainment display.
Two new engines join the lineup this year, filling out the
Lexus RC lineup and expanding its appeal. The 2016 RC 200t comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, with the RC 300 AWD bringing all-wheel drive to the lineup at a lower price point than the RC 350 AWD.
