The facelift for the Lexus RC Coupe was revealed in August ahead of a Paris Motor Show debut, and it goes on sale in the UK with prices from £38,800.
The Lexus RC is a properly appealing premium coupe with very good looks, a lovely cabin and laid back demeanour. And Lexus has made it a bit more appealing with a bit of a facelift, revealed in August, with the titivated RC going on sale in the UK on 1 November with prices from £38,800 and new trim levels.
The tweaks to the RC aren’t huge, but it does get a flavour of the range-topping LC Coupe in its looks, with a tweaked front bumper and grille, air ducts on the back bumper, a wider stance and new combination tail lights, as well as improved interior quality and new colour options.
Now coming with the same trim levels as the new Lexus ES and Lexus UX, the entry-level RC gets 18″ alloys, Lexus Safety System+, parking sensors, reversing camera, keyless, Premium Nav and Tahara upholstery, with options including sunroof and leather and prices starting at £38,800.
The Lexus RC F Sport (costs from £42,300) gets the usual F Sport styling with front spindle grille, 19″ alloys, sports seats, orange brake calipers, triple eye LED headlights, Auto High Beam, leather and Adaptive Variable Suspension, with a Takumi Pack option (£2,100) adding Mark Levinson Sound, heated steering wheel, card key, aluminium inlays and sunroof.
The Lexus RC Takumi – from £45,800 – adds the Mark Levinson Sound System, 19″ 10-spoke alloys, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, driver’s memory, sunroof and smooth leather.
The 2019 Lexus RC officially goes on sale in the UK on 1 November.
