The 2017 Lexus RC is a seductive sports coupe that just happens to be a winner where resale values are concerned. Isn't it nice when desire and smart financial decisions align? Built to compete with the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 the Lexus RC brings bold style, high value and agile handling to the fight.
Slip inside the RC and, assuming you're sitting up front, you'll enjoy supremely comfortable seats and ample passenger space. The rear seats are definitely limited-use units intended for smaller occupants but the unfortunate souls crammed back there are still surrounded by a smart-looking interior adorned in high-quality materials. Silver lining!
The Lexus RC comes in 4 flavors. Ready? There's the RC 200t sporting 241 horsepower and a roughly $41,000 base price, the V6-powered all-wheel-drive RC 300, the RC350 boasting a healthy 306 horsepower and either rear- or all-wheel drive, and the $65,000 467-horsepower RC F, an apex predator built to endanger your license.
In years past Lexus took heat for playing it too safe. Well, those days are over. From its imposing spindle grille and muscular body to its capable handling and array of eager engines the RC is a coupe that's comfortable pushing boundaries. At the same time Lexus hasn't forsaken the quality, reliability, and top-notch resale values that buyers demand. Metaphorically speaking, if the Lexus RC were a cake you could both have it and eat it.
