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.
