About Lexus RC

For the longest time, Lexus coupes were more about luxury and precision craftsmanship than posing a serious challenge to Europe’s best performance-oriented cars. With the advent of the 2017 Lexus RC luxury-sports coupe, all that has changed. Displaying styling more aggressive than a BMW 4 Series or an Audi A5, the RC appeals to a younger set without completely alienating traditional Lexus buyers. We’d say the RC is great direct competitor to the Cadillac ATS, which also has a bold, expressive face, numerous engine options and a reputation for being a beast on and off the track. Not to leave anyone unchallenged, the Lexus RC F offers a powerful V8 engine but, unlike the RC coupe, is driven solely by its rear wheels.

"Plenty of room for driver and passenger, but don't use the back seat. We bought the car for two people and it's awesome. You should have seen the sales person trying to get in and out of the back seat. LOL This car is a true sports car that will make anyone happy to drive. It's got all the bells and whistles. My wife smiles every time she gets behind the wheel. The sound system is out of this world !!"

"Though I have owned two other Lexus autos, an Audi, and three Cadillacs, my RC300 is at the next level. The craftsmanship, beauty, ride, and "class" are unparalleled. I did not purchase it to use the back seat for passengers. Nor did I expect it to be a "Road and Track" driving machine. It is a superlative compromise between its driving ability and ride. My wife gives it a 10 out of 10, as do I. A fantastic automobile!"

"I've owned my RC350 coupe with the F Sport package for almost a year now. This has been one of the funnest cars I've owned. I have the pearl orange color and I get people taking pictures and giving me the thumbs up every where I go. The car handles great and has a good amount of power. We live in a very snowy climate and I can't say enough about the handling in icy/snowy conditions. The ease of using all of the controls is fantastic."
