The RC 300 RWD is powered by a highly responsive 2.0-liter, twin-scroll-turbocharged and intercooled in-line four-cylinder engine with direct injection. The power in the 241-horsepower RC 300 doesn’t let up—thanks to the Lexus engineers who spent years researching, developing and refining its turbocharger.
Available on all F SPORT RWD models, a limited-slip rear differential automatically and instantly distributes power to both the right and left rear wheels. This helps improve traction and control during cornering, without interrupting power output.
Own the road in a way that's totally your own with an eight-speed transmission (RWD only). It touts paddle shifters that deliver lightning-fast upshifts and heart-racing split-second downshifts with rev-matching.
The RC offers four unique performance driving modes for added agility or efficiency. Sport S+ mode tightens the suspension to reduce body lean and maximize responsiveness. While Custom drive mode enables you to create a unique profile of a combination of drive mode settings for a more personalized driving experience.
Form meets function with the available bold Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps. The headlamps’ eye-catching design does more than illuminate the road ahead, it impresses at every turn.
Exclusive F SPORT exterior styling features include a distinctive front bumper, F SPORT badging, and signature upper grille inserts.
An available expansive moonroof with a unique outer-sliding design provides a larger opening and more interior headroom than conventional moonroofs.
Unique door-pocket LEDs housed behind the door handles help provide a sophisticated entrance into the cockpit.
While every bit a performance cockpit, the interior of the RC envelops the driver and passengers in stunning craftsmanship. Available perforated NuLuxe® trim epitomizes evocative style and sophistication, while Linear Espresso and Linear Dark Mocha wood accents offer unparalleled artistry.
The RC F SPORT boasts race-inspired features including an F SPORT–badged steering wheel, a perforated leather–trimmed shift knob and aluminum sport pedals. While front sport seats with enhanced bolsters support you through aggressive turns.
The RC F SPORT features bold interior color options with contrast stitching. In addition to the striking Circuit Red NuLuxe®* and White NuLuxe, Black and Yellow NuLuxe trim offers the ultimate in stand-out style.
The large available 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display provides immediate, simultaneous access to audio or climate controls and various systems, including Navigation. It offers up-to-date traffic and weather information, 3D city views and more.
Using only your voice, you can easily access thousands of the same functions you get with Alexa at home. Listen to audiobooks, stream Amazon Music, make lists, check the weather, get news briefings and much more. You can also use it to control compatible smart-home devices such as lighting, thermostat and security systems.
With Android Auto™, you can display your device's interface on the vehicle’s multimedia screen. Play music via apps like Spotify® and Pandora®, send messages through WhatsApp®, navigate with Google Maps, request information, and more—all with your voice. Just say "Hey Google" to get started.
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.
To help provide greater visibility for you as well as other drivers, Intelligent High Beams* offer added illumination to help keep you focused on the road. When the road ahead is clear, the system defaults to high-beam mode. When it detects the headlamps or taillamps of vehicles ahead, it temporarily switches to low beams.
This system* utilizes a camera to monitor visible lane markings. If an inadvertent or potential lane departure is detected, it’s designed to warn you and can take slight corrective measures. If Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* is engaged, the system can help you prevent drifting and remain in the center of the visibly marked lane.
Radar and camera technology helps to keep you at a preset speed and distance from vehicles ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic. If the system* detects you getting closer than the preset distance, it automatically slows your vehicle—even to a complete stop. At highway speeds, when the road ahead clears, your Lexus returns to its preset speed.
This system* is engineered to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should it detect a potential frontal collision, it’s designed to automatically prepare Brake Assist* for increased brake force and, in some cases, can even automatically brake the vehicle to a stop.
