Offered with a choice of engines as well as rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, the 2019 Lexus RC coupe caters to a wide swath of enthusiast drivers. However, even with the range-topping 467-horsepower RC F, the RC’s performance credentials don’t quite yet match those of its BMW and Audi rivals, and its styling might be a bit too bold for some.
New Features and Revisions
For 2019, the Lexus RC gets an exterior makeover focusing on revised front and rear styling. Underneath, the RC gets revised shock and spring settings, recalibrated power steering and an ECU update for the turbo models. Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa make the cut, but not Android Auto.
