Lexus Malaysia has just launched the 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible in Malaysia. The brand-new soft-top convertible from Lexus is priced from RM 1.35 million (with SST, without insurance). Like the LC 500 Coupe, the LC 500 Convertible comes fully imported (CBU) from Toyota’s Motomachi plant in Japan.

Top-down

Compared to the LC 500 Coupe, the newly-introduced chop-top version of the LC 500 gains a new soft top – a first for Lexus. The choice of the soft top was to minimize the intrusion to the boot and cabin space, as hard tops tend to occupy more space.

Soft top up

The soft top, which is available in black or beige, can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 50 km/h. It takes approximately 15 seconds to open and approximately 16 seconds to close.

Like the LC 500 Coupe, the convertible LC 500 is powered by a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated 2UR-GSE petrol engine that does 477 PS at 7,100 rpm and 540 Nm at 4,800 rpm, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Although the convertible version of the LC 500 loses the roof, airbag count is not compromised. It gets 6 airbags in total, with the airbags installed at the door sides of the front seats are mounted higher so curtain airbags aren’t necessary.
