    Lexus RC Overview

    The Lexus RC is a compact executive 2-door coupé based on the premium Lexus IS sedan. Available in Malaysia in the rear-wheel-drive, V6-powered RC 350 Luxury form, the premium coupé from the Japanese luxury automaker is set to go up against the likes of BMW 4 Series, Audi A5 and the Mercedes C Class Coupé.

    The RC 350 Luxury variant is the sole model on offer and is priced from RM 499,219 when new (Lexus RC F model is the performance variant offered by the F Marque from Lexus). Fully imported from Japan, it comes with Lexus’s full suite of advanced safety technology, Lexus Safety System+ as standard

    Lexus RC Design

    The Lexus RC series is designed with comfort and luxury in mind, although sportiness was also very much part of the equation. As with any other Lexus model, your attention is immediately drawn to its massive, chromed spindle grille, albeit with a more luxury-oriented, Lexus ES-style vertical slats styling here in the Coupé.

    The sharp Triple-Beam Led headlamps design coupled with the Lexus signature L-shaped daytime running light gives the RC coupé its distinctive striking front end which exudes a commanding road presence. A subtly integrated vertical air inlet on either side of the lower bumper channels the air through the outer wall of front wheels, reducing drag while also cooling the brakes.

    Its clean and subtle character line coupled with a steeply raked A-pillars accentuates its sleek yet muscular form. Pronounced wheel arches and broad shoulder haunches highlights its aggressive stance and the generously sized 18-inch alloy wheels compliments the hunkered down-look.

    The coupé silhouette is further accentuated by the slopping roof line and the strong shoulder line toward its dramatic rear fascia, subtly shaped boot lid with an integrated spoiler, the L signature rear LED lights, aggressively styled lower bumper with side fins and punctuated by the twin trapezoidal exhaust exits with the diffuser like glass-black trim.

    Lexus RC Dimension

    The Lexus RC has a shorter wheelbase than the Lexus IS sedan though it is longer overall. Positioned below the Lexus LC Coupé/Convertible, the RC is the smallest coupé in Lexus vehicle line up. It is marginally bigger than the Mercedes-Benz C 200 Coupe but with significantly shorter wheelbase. 1,110 mm shorter to be exact.

    Dimensions 
     Length  4,695 mm
     Width  1,840 mm
     Height  1,395 mm
     Wheelbase  1,730 mm

    Lexus RC Interior

    The cabin layout of the Lexus RC is essentially a carbon copy of the Lexus IS sedan with few subtle differences. Up front, the Coupé features a tiered dashboard layout and high-quality perforated leather upholstery, highlighted by Linear Espresso and Linear Dark Mocha wood inlays and accented by silver interior trims.

    The central analog clock adds a premium touch to the cabin and the available 10.3-inch display is seamlessly integrated into the tiered dashboard design, deliberately positioned out of reach when driving and controlled only using the console-mounted Remote Touch interface next to the palm rest.

    Power adjustable front seats and the powered tilt-and-telescopic steering column adds a sense of occasion when they move towards its preset position as the driver enters. The shorter wheelbase and the slopping roof line unfortunately spells a rather cramped interior for the rear occupants. The foldable rear seats split 60:40, increasing its existing 366 litre cargo carrying capacity.

  • Driving Performance

    Lexus RC Driving Performance

    Engine

    Power comes courtesy of Toyota’s 2GR-FSE 3.5 litre naturally aspirated V6 engine, developing 316 PS at 6,400 RPM and 378 Nm of torque from 4,800 RPM. It propels the car from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 230 km/h.

    The V6 features VVT-I technology designed to provide added torque at lower speeds and greater horsepower at higher speeds. Incorporates Toyota's D-4S twin injection fuel system with direct and port fuel injection, engine performance is amplified over the V6 in the RC 300. And coming from the same group of people that gave us the Lexus LFA, you can almost guarantee a sweet exhaust note too.

    Transmission

    Power is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission with with Sport-Direct-Shift. Paddle shifters and downshift throttle blipping is also available should you decide to take matters into your own hands.

  • Ride Comfort

    Lexus RC Ride Comfort

    With a highly rigid platform, double-wishbone front suspension design and multilink rear suspension, the Lexus RC comfort-oriented setup strikes a nice balance between comfort and driving dynamics. It soaks up the bumps on the road while also remaining poise through the curves.

    While it may not be as engaging to drive as the more dynamically inclined BMW 4 Series but the more supple and cosseting ride suits its ‘luxury sports coupé’ character.

  • Fuel Comusmption

    Lexus RC Fuel Consumption

    The Lexus RC 350 Luxury registers a fuel consumption of 10.7 L/100 km (22 MPG) on a combined cycle.

  • Conclusion

    Lexus RC Conclusion

    The Lexus RC offers an interesting propositioned in the sports coupé segment, wrapped up in a generously spec and boldly styled exterior package. Compared to its more austere European rivals, the Lexus appears rebellious in nature with its free revving naturally aspirated V6 engine, love-it-or-hate-it exterior styling and its barely useable rear seats. 

    It is rather extreme in every sense of the word for a luxury sports coupé. But with a price tag of close to RM 500 k, it is stepping dangerously close to a proper sports coupé’s territory, occupied by the likes of Jaguar F-Type and the Toyota Supra.
