2023 Lexus LC 500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2023 Lexus LC?

The Lexus LC is a four-seat luxury sports car. The dramatically styled two-door has a choice of two powertrains: The LC 500 has a 471-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the LC 500h has a 354-hp hybrid drivetrain. Both versions are rear-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW M850i and Jaguar F-Type.

What’s New on the 2023 Lexus LC?

Lexus says it’s retuned the LC’s suspension for improved dynamic handling and road feel. Otherwise, there are no significant changes for 2023.

What Features in the 2023 Lexus LC Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Navigation with 10.3-inch screen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure steering assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert

Available features include:

  • 20- or 21-inch forged-aluminum wheels
  • Carbon-fiber roof
  • Glass roof
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Semi-aniline leather upholstery
  • Alcantara-trimmed seats
  • Mark Levinson surround-sound system
  • Head-up display
  • Limited-slip differential
  • Speed-activated rear wing
  • Torsen limited-slip rear differential
  • Performance brake pads

Should I Buy the 2023 Lexus LC?

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