2019 Lexus LC 500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Lexus LC?

The 2019 Lexus LC is a four-seat luxury coupe. The dramatically styled two-door is available as the LC 500 with a 471-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission or the LC 500h with a 354-hp hybrid drivetrain. Both versions are rear-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW M850i, Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and Jaguar F-Type.

What’s New on the 2019 Lexus LC?

Tweaks to the 2019 LC focus on cruising comfort. Transmission software changes soften part-throttle shifts, while suspension changes aim to improve ride comfort. New standard connectivity includes Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity and Amazon Alexa integration as well as remote functions accessible from a smart watch or Alexa device.

What Features in the 2019 Lexus LC Are Most Important?

As a flagship coupe for Lexus, the LC is a showcase for the brand and includes many standard features like 20-inch wheels, an active exhaust system, navigation with a 10.3-inch screen, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Options include semi-aniline leather upholstery, an Alcantara simulated-suede headliner, a head-up display and a Mark Levinson surround-sound system.

Should I Buy the 2019 Lexus LC?

The Lexus LC combines knockout styling, top-notch luxury appointments and engaging driving dynamics. It skews to the luxury end of the spectrum rather than offering a pure sports car experience. The LC 500h hybrid is less enjoyable to drive and costs more. If ultimate performance — or a usable backseat — are important, then you’ll need to shop around.

A Head Turner

My LC 500 is not just a beauty but excellent in every way. It is stylish, comfortable, and drives great. It is such a pleasure to drive it. Have owned it since 2019 and am loving every single drive in this glamorous sporty beauty. A very happy customer here!

Brilliantly balanced

Lexus engineering is amazing, and this car shows what they are capable of producing. This car is stunning to look at, with strong performance and comfort. You get great everyday driveability and all of the tricks combined with Lexus reliability... brilliant. Also, people know this is something special, and driving it gets you lots of "thumbs up" and waves from teens and adults.

Like a Classic Car, better equipped and reliable

This car is tight to enter and exit, but the sound of the V/8 Twin Exhaust and the compliments make up for, this is one of most beautiful cars I have seen and I am a Car Guy
