Meet the 2019 Lexus RC

Meet the 2019 Lexus RC! The 2019 Lexus RC was inspired by the idea “sharper and more graceful” and has been realized through improved aerodynamics and a more fine-tuned suspension system. This makes the RC more athletic and responsive. A new fin shape on the side window mold, a duct on the rear bumper, and 19-in. wheels create enhanced aerodynamics.

The 2019 Lexus RC is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, producing 241 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,650-4,400 rpm. The eight-speed sport direct-shift automatic transmission gets an impressive fuel rate of 21 mpg city / 30 mpg highway. The 2019 Lexus RC adds Blue Vortex Metallic as a standard exterior color while the interior features a new White, Circuit Red, Black with Yellow Accents and Dark Gray Streamline trim for the F SPORT.
