2017 Lexus RC Review

Overview
Moderation? Not in the powerful Lexus RC. This all-new turbocharged car mixes captivating coupe styling with exhilarating and efficient performance. Experience the full potential of the available power plants with split-second upshifts and rapid downshifts using the race car inspired paddle shifters. Choose from 3 available engines including a 2-liter turbo. Get the RC in one of 6 styles starting with the RC Turbo or get it all with the RC 350 F Sport. Inside the luxury continues. Race-inspired upgrades like a G-force monitor and digital gauges take your experience to the next level. Use the high-resolution multimedia display or your voice to access the available Navigation System. For those wanting the ultimate in driving control you can make your RC more responsive or efficient by simply turning a dial using Drive Mode Select. Laugh at the weather. All-wheel drive helps provide advanced traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and under all kinds of conditions. Make one yours by choosing from a wide variety of exterior colors and luxurious interior finishes. The Lexus RC make an overstatement.
Technology
Gorgeous looks on the outside are matched with a sumptuous interior. Shut out the outside world with a smog-sensing dual-zone climate-control system that switches into recirculation mode when it senses high levels of outdoor pollutants. Stay focused on the road ahead. Intuitively placed controls put a variety of features at your fingertips like audio voice activation multi-information display and cruise control. Your portable devices can stay charged and connected with a center console featuring a minijack accessory power outlet and USB connectivity for convenient playback through the onboard audio system.
Safety
Your safety is a top priority in every Lexus. The RC features a suite of standard and available safety features from air-bags to driver assist technologies like Smart Stop. Each one designed to protect you and your passengers. You’re never far away from help with Lexus Enform Safety Connect. In the instance of a collision stolen vehicle or any other type of emergency assistance can be sent directly to your vehicle's GPS location.
Performance
The RC grasps every ounce of performance from its engines. Using twin-scroll turbocharger technology you’ll get spritely acceleration and optimum efficiency as you cruise. The RC Turbo’s in-line 4 turbocharged engine and 8 speed transmission pumps out an impressive 241 horsepower while giving you an EPA estimated 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Jump up to the RC350 rear wheel drive’s 3.5 liter V6 and you’ll see 306 horsepower and an impressive EPA estimated 28 miles per gallon on the highway. It’s designed from the ground up with the performance-demanding driver in mind.
