Refined Styling And Dynamics For New Lexus Rc Coupe – Dec 05, 2018 – Aichi, Japan (Techreleased) – An updated Lexus RC coupe has arrived in Australia displaying a new-found sense of elegance with refinements to its styling, dynamics and equipment levels.
Equipment levels for the Luxury variants of the V6 RC 350 and turbo RC 300 have been expanded to include blind-spot monitor with lane-change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing wipers, cornering lamps and exterior mirrors with a wider field of view with electro-chromatic auto dimming and memory. RC 350 Luxury gains adaptive variable suspension.
Cabin details also exude maximum driving pleasure with attention to detail reflected in larger and higher knee pads on either side of the centre cluster, creating a heightened sense of space.
The F Sport – distinguished by its exclusive F Sport styling features – gains newly designed 10-spoke 19-inch alloys inspired by those on the LS and LC, new LED headlights in a triple eye arrangement with automatic high beam and, in the cabin, Naguri aluminium trim inlays.
Luxury variants have four trim colours, two of which are new – ochre and dark rose. On F Sport, three of the four trim options are new – F Sport Flare Red, F Sport Black/Tuscan Sun (yellow) and F Sport White.
The RC 300 features the potent Lexus 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, offering 180kW and 350Nm. An ultra-responsive 232kW/380Nm 3.5-litre quad-cam direct-injection V6 powers the RC 350. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed Sports Direct Shift transmission.
All RC models feature Lexus Safety Sense+ including a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, active cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, and automatic high beam.
