    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.

    Performance

    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.

    Safety

    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.

    REVIEW: 2017 Lexus RC

    Silicon Valley Review 2017 Lexus RC

    Great style and sporty performance don’t always go hand-in-hand with high safety ratings and conservative fuel economy, so in this way, the 2017 Lexus RC is an outlier – in the best way possible. Drivers in Silicon Valley who want a sporty coupe without compromise need look no further than the RC, whether they choose the 200t, 350, or F model. Here’s our full review of this deluxe coupe from Lexus:

    FEATURES

    Each model of the RC has standard automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rearview camera, and a deluxe infotainment system that has a 7-inch display screen, 10 speakers, HD radio, dual USB ports, Bluetooth technology, and eyes-free smartphone integration. Additionally, it’s equipped with Lexus Enform Service Connect to ensure you never miss a routine service appointment.

    There’s also available heated and ventilated front seats, navigation with touch-pad controller, upgraded Enform system, leather interior, heated steering wheel, and moonroof. You can also add a deluxe Mark Levinson audio system, driver assistance technologies, and performance features such as high-tuned suspension and Sport+ driving mode.

    STYLING

    The RC is a muscular looking coupe, fit for passing the competition on the highway and leaving an impression without being a showoff. The spindle grille is unmistakably Lexus, while a low roofline and turned up rear are decidedly sporty and add to the performance. The interior has a creatively designed center console, a roadster-worthy steering wheel, and stylized, high-back seats to round out the RC’s athletic look. The F model comes with standard BBS aluminum wheels, carbon-fiber roof, and rear spoiler.

    SAFETY

    The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2017 RC a Top Safety Pick+. The coupe earned perfect scores in tests for small and moderate front overlap, side impact, rear crash, and roof strength.

    In addition to standard safety features like airbags, anti-lock brakes, and daytime running lights, the RC is available with some of the most advanced safety features available. These include pre-collision warning, brake system with force distribution, dynamic radar cruise control, intuitive parking assistance, blind spot monitor, hill-start assist, and rain-sensing wipers.

    ENGINE

    You have the choice between four engine options on the RC. Note that the rear-wheel drive and F models have an 8-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel drive models are mated to 6-speed automatic transmission.

    The base engine is a 3-liter turbocharged inline-4 with 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque; while you can also upgrade to a 3.5-liter V6 with all-wheel drive that makes 255 horses of power and 236 lb-ft of torque. The RC 350 has a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 306 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. If performance really matters to you, go with the F model, which has a 5-liter V8 engine with 467 horses of power and 389 lb-ft of torque.
