The new Lexus RC is the latest model from premium brand, Lexus. Just like other Lexus models it's proving too tempting - creating an instant and enduring emotional connection with anyone that sets eyes on the stunning luxury coupe. Dramatic styling is where it starts, and the attraction of the model increases once you take your seat. Firing up the engine is the beginning of a thrilling time on the road.
Vivid exterior design has always separated Lexus models from all others. The RC takes this a step further with even more striking looks; sharp lines sweep along the body, over the wheel arches and down the bonnet to meet at either side of the characteristic spindle grille. The triangular three-lamp LED headlamp design was directly influenced by the LF-LC concept car as a demonstration of Lexus’ memorable visual identity. The rear lights adopt another L shape, while the lightweight 18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels have also been carried over from the concept.
Lexus’ design team has made use of contrasting colours, materials and lighting to make each trip an occasion to look forward to. Layered wood trim, brushed aluminium and bright leather upholstery are three of the many lavish materials you can pick from to dress the cabin. An advanced construction method for the sports seats maximises their comfort and support during the longest journeys.
Such pace and power need to be managed carefully for the safety of everyone on the road. Sports VDIM has a major role to play in this, and it is supported by Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems. Collisions are extremely unlikely, but the severity of any impact is lessened by the RC’s rigid chassis and eight airbags.
Up in the driver-focused cockpit is a 4.2-inch colour multi-information display featuring a track-focused G-sensor, lap timer and torque distribution display. The Lexus Media Display is where your entertainment options are accessed and operated from. Select your preferred radio station using the DAB tuner or play songs from your smartphone via Bluetooth®. A Lexus Premium Navigation system is also on the standard equipment list to guide you wherever you want to go.
One of the most alluring sports coupés ever created, the new RC 300h redefines beauty, luxury and performance in a hybrid car. Powered by the pioneering Full Hybrid Drive powertrain, twinned with an E-CVT automatic transmission, the result is a sports coupé that delivers decisive power and exceptional response and agility.
