Since its introduction in 2014, the Lexus RC has been one of the brand’s more stylish and popular offerings catering to those that want a sporty yet refined coupe. And as we all know, it seems just about time to refresh this nameplate. And Lexus does so with no less than a few cues from the LC.
Yes, the exterior and interior, not to mention the driving dynamics have all taken a page from the top-dog LC. The new bumpers, grille, and even the air ducts in various places like the rear bumper aren’t just for show. They’re all there to aid aerodynamics and driving dynamics. These are enhanced by little details like the fins on the window moldings that make the car more slippery thru the air.
Speaking of details, it’s the little things that give the interior a more refined feel. Hairline elements on the ventilation controls and infotainment system add to the premium vibe. The new analogue clock is likewise taken from the LC. And a new palm rest also gives better ergonomics.
