Review:2019 Lexus RC

The newly designed 2019 Lexus RC is ready to take you and three passengers on an exhilarating ride in northern California. Visit Lexus Stevens Creek in San Jose to step inside this luxurious sport coupe and experience the power and modern technology features.


The 2019 Lexus RC is offered in four different styles: RC 300, RC 300 F SPORT, RC 350, and RC 350 F SPORT. All styles provide the option of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The RC 300 RWD trims are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed sport direct-shift automatic transmission which generates 241-hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque.

The RC 300 AWD and RC 350 trims are equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drivetrain, or an eight-speed automatic transmission with a rear-wheel drivetrain, which pump out from 241 – 311 horsepower and 236 – 280 lbs.-ft. of torque.

All F SPORT models utilize an adaptive variable suspension, dynamic rear steering, variable gear-ratio steering, and limited-slip differential to foresee and deliver the best handling for any situation.

Comfort and Technology

Nu-Luxe®-trimmed seats with heated and ventilated front seats are great options to increase comfort for all occupants. Your rear-seat passengers will always have added knee room thanks to the uniquely shaped front seatbacks. The F SPORT trims include the option for bolstered seats, an F SPORT-badged steering wheel, leather-trimmed shift knob, and red Nu-Luxe® trim with unique stitching.

Available is a 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display with Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa compatibility and access to navigation, climate controls, and audio system. The three-dimensional sound will fill the cabin with the optional 17-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson® premium surround sound audio system with Clari-Fi® technology.


All new RC models come standard with an eight-airbag system and Lexus Safety System + which incorporates a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, intelligent high-beam headlamps, lane departure alert with steering assist, and high-dynamic radar cruise control. Blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, intuitive parking assist, and windshield wiper de-icer are optional.


Starting at $41,145 MSRP
