The aggressive styling of the 2022 Lexus RC F is a big clue that this V-8–powered coupe is something special.

Although it's based on the tamer RC coupe, the Lexus RC F boasts 472 horsepower, an adaptive suspension, Brembo six-piston brakes, and a limited-slip rear differential.

In other words, it's the ultimate RC. Even so, the Lexus RC F doesn't quite measure up to rivals such as the Audi RS5 or the BMW M4 when it comes to performance and handling.

Lexus RC F instead opts for a ride that is less punishing than those two-door alternatives, so that may be a plus for people who intend to drive it daily.

We think most shoppers will be pleased with the RC F's base model, which is sold with an appealing range of standard equipment.

The list of standard interior features includes simulated leather upholstery, a manually adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

All Lexus RC F models come with the Lexus Safety System+ suite of driver-assistance technology, and this includes amenities such as forward-collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

Lexus RC F Engine All 2022 Lexus RC F coupes are motivated by a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that produces 472 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque.

In 2020, the RC F received a slight power boost and a lighter curb weight, which allowed it to zip to 60 in just 4.1 seconds this time around

The Lexus RC F comes standard with drive-mode settings that allow you to customize the car's performance. Its smooth handling makes it a comfortable choice for everyday driving.

Lexus RC F mileage According to the EPA, the Lexus RC F achieves mileage of 16/24 mpg city/highway. It's less fuel-efficient on the highway than rival coupes such as the rear-drive BMW M4 (16/25 mpg).

The Lexus RC F's Interior cabin is notable for its plush comfort and elegant design. The front seats are a pleasant place to spend your commute, and the interior is home to chic styling and premium materials.

Technically, this coupe provides four-passenger seating, but the cramped back seat is best used for cargo storage. In back, the RC F's trunk offers 10 cubic feet of room for your stuff.

That's less room than you'll get with rivals such as the BMW M4 coupe (12 cubic feet) and Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic (11 cubic feet).
