2021 Lexus RC Review

Moderation? Not in the powerful Lexus RC. This captivating coupe mixes bold and athletic style with exhilarating and efficient performance. It’s your reward for living well. Choose from six styles starting with the RC 300 and moving through the sublime RC F Fuji Speedway Edition. Four different engines are available from a turbocharged inline four to a naturally-aspirated V-8. Six- or eight-speed automatic transmissions offer split-second upshifts and downshifts using racecar-inspired paddle shifters. Make your RC more responsive or more efficient simply by turning a dial. Drive Mode Select gives you the ultimate in driving control. Available All-Wheel Drive helps provide advanced traction and control on all kinds of road surfaces in all kinds of conditions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration keep you connected Lexus Safety System Plus keeps you protected and the available G-Force Meter makes sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an RC that’s all yours. The Lexus RC. Make an overstatement.
Your Lexus RC is waiting to hear from you. Voice Command is standard so just say “It’s too hot ” and the climate control system makes the cabin cooler. Or say “Change radio station.” Or “Call home.” Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration brings your compatible smartphone to life and Amazon Alexa compatibility opens new worlds. Start your engine with your smartwatch; hear the beginning of a podcast in your kitchen and the end on your way to work. The Lexus RC. This is the ultimate high-performance driving experience.
Every Lexus RC comes with the radar- and camera-based driver-assist features of Lexus Safety System Plus. High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control takes the stress out of rush-hour traffic. If you start to drift out of your lane Lane Departure Alert with Lane Keep Asist can let you know—and can take corrective action if you don’t. If there’s a car—or pedestrian—in front of you Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection4 can slow your RC and even bring it to a stop in some cases. The Lexus LS. This is the pinnacle of high-performance safety.
Every Lexus RC squeezes every ounce of performance from its engine. Rear-wheel-drive RC 300s get a turbocharged inline four and an eight-speed transmission—good for 241 horsepower and up to 31 miles per gallon. Or choose from a pair of 3.5-liter V-6s one with 260 horses and one with 311. Top dog is the RC F’s five-liter V-8 and its 472 naturally-aspirated horsepower. At just under thirty-eight-hundred pounds3 that gives the stunning RC F Fuji Speedway Edition the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. The Lexus RC. Proof that the world still cares.
