2020 Lexus RC 300 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Lexus RC?

The 2020 Lexus RC is a luxury sports coupe that seats four. There are three engine choices: The rear-wheel-drive RC 300 uses a 241-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the all-wheel-drive RC 300 is powered by a 260-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions of the RC 350, meanwhile, get a 311-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. Covered separately in the Cars.com Research section, the high-performance rear-wheel-drive RC F is powered by a 472-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. 

Rear-wheel-drive versions use an eight-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel-drive models have a six-speed automatic. The RC competes with the Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series

What’s New on the 2020 Lexus RC?

There are no significant changes this year. 

What Features in the 2020 Lexus RC Are Most Important?

Standard convenience features include push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning, power-adjustable front seats and a 60/40-split, folding backseat. Options include a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, a power moonroof, navigation and a Mark Levinson premium stereo. 

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist and automatic high-beam headlights. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert is available. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Lexus RC?

Good visibility and a roomy front cabin are highlights of the RC, but like a lot of coupes, the backseat is snug. We’re also not fans of Lexus’ touchpad-based multimedia interface.
