Too much power? Too much control? No such thing. Own the road in a way that's totally your own with an eight-speed transmission and paddle shifters (RWD only) for optimum control. Delivering lightning-fast upshifts and heart-racing split-second downshifts with rev-matching, the paddle shifters in the RC help you realize the full potential of its 3.5-liter V6 or turbocharged engines. And, in the available Sport S/Sport S+ modes, the transmission is so advanced it varies its shifting based on G-forces. By detecting when the RC enters a curve, a lower gear is held throughout for optimal response when accelerating out.
Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your RC more responsive or efficient with a simple turn of a dial.
Delivering stopping performance as precise as its handling, the rear-wheel drive RC F SPORT models feature massive 14-inch, two-piece front brake rotors with four-piston calipers. Engineered exclusively for the F SPORT, they feature high-friction pads and a unique multistage booster for optimized control, response and feel.
Taking the comfort of the standard seats even further, the heated and ventilated front seats offer separate heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather.
Customize the climate around you. Individual settings allow the driver and front passenger to adjust their preferred temperatures. And, to ensure the cabin stays as fresh as it is beautiful, a smog-sensing climate-control system automatically switches into recirculation mode if it senses high levels of pollutants outside.
In addition to uniquely shaped front seatbacks that offer added knee room for rear-seat passengers, you'll enjoy the convenience of a standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seat, enabling you to transport longer items with ease.
The perforated leather–trimmed interior epitomizes edgy style and sophistication.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence. But in case you wanted to extend your peace of mind, you'll find a variety of plans available, including ones for longer-term care, one that covers accessories and another in the event of a total loss of your Lexus due to theft, fire or accident. Take a look below to learn more about your standard coverage, as well as additional coverage options.
Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
When you put the vehicle in reverse, the view from the backup camera is shown on the multimedia display in full color with dynamic gridlines to assist you with parking and other maneuvers.
Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake Assist helps provide additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.
Taking the exterior design to the next level, the LED rear combination lamps are constructed to create a powerful presence while consuming less power for greater efficiency. LED taillamps also last longer and illuminate faster than conventional bulbs, possibly giving drivers behind you more time to react to the brake lamps.
