Despite having killer aesthetics, the Lexus LC drives more like a luxury car than an exotic sports car.
Both a normally aspirated V-8 and a V-6 hybrid are available for the LC. We favour the first option.
Although the Lexus LC offers a comfortable ride and both of its engines produce a sizable amount of power, its competitors have far quicker reflexes.
They cannot equal the Lexus's designer interior, which incorporates components from the legendary LFA supercar and the LS premium sedan.
While a technology dubbed Active Cornering Assist is believed to improve handling by lightly applying the brakes to the inner wheels through a bend, Lexus claims to have smoothed out the ride.
The Lexus LC now comes with new 20-inch wheels and two new paint colours: Nori Green Pearl and Cadmium Orange.
The high-performance 5.0-liter V-8 engine from Lexus, which cranks out 471 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, powers the base Lexus LC.
The Lexus LC's 354-hp gas-electric drivetrain, which combines a 3.5-liter V-6, two electric motors, a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery, and other components, is the other available powerplant.
The Performance package's variable steering and adaptive rear-wheel steering systems significantly improve the LC's steering response time and overall responsiveness.
The Lexus LC weighs hundreds of pounds more than its primary competitors and tips the scales more like a three-row SUV than a sports car, so its EPA numbers are not very outstanding.
With the Lexus LC achieving 4 more miles per gallon on the highway, and the LC500h falling far short of its 34-mpg claim at 30 mpg (as hybrids usually do on the interstate)
The interior of the Lexus LC is unique, with a comfortable driving position, luxurious materials, exquisite craftsmanship, superb front seats, and a tonne of electronics.
The LC's storage capacity is barely five cubic feet, which is only enough to store two of our carry-on items due to its small trunk and non-folding back seats.
The Lexus LC's cabin is lovely, but there aren't many cubbies for storing loose goods. However, the centre console is a good size and has a second cupholder that can be accessed by adjusting the lid.
The Lexus LC's incorporates a mobile hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, comes with standard features like Bluetooth, navigation, and a wide range of apps.
