Introduction

The Lexus RC is a rear-wheel-drive luxury sport coupe that’s right for swift jaunts on country roads. It’s almost three inches shorter than the smallest Lexus sedan, the IS, but more than one inch wider. It competes with the BMW 4 Series, Audi A5, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Cadillac ATS coupe. It’s not on their level but it’s getting closer.

Like its close siblings the IS and GS sedans, the Lexus RC uses a double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension tuned on the firm side, but suitably compliant for casual driving. It might not be ready for aggressive cornering, but it hits the right balance of ride and handling for this class. Meanwhile the electric power steering feels settled and quick.

For 2016 there are two new models, the RC 200t with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and RC 300, an all-wheel-drive V6. Two existing models are the RC 350 with a more powerful V6, and RC F with a strong V8.

The Lexus RC 200t is the most affordable, in sticker price and fuel economy, but you pay for it with time, zero to sixty in 7.3 seconds, with that full-throttle pause we’ve complained about in the Lexus GS and IS having the same engine connected to the same 8-speed automatic transmission and same electronic program with the same result.

The RC 300 gets to 60 mph in a quicker 6.3 seconds.

We like the sounds from the 306-horsepower V6 in the RC 350, good grunting noises. Its adaptive controls for the transmission, throttle and steering give it a nice balance, with a few rough performance edges.

The RC F is designed to go after the BMW M4 and Audi S4, with its 5.0-liter V8 rippling with 467 horsepower. It blasts the coupe to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds and 170 top speed. It uses an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters, and four modes. For traction it’s got Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and a Torsen limited-slip differential. For handling and stopping it’s got 19-inch wheels and tires, firmer bushings and roll bars and bigger Brembo brakes. We’ve had it on the track, where it’s happy and composed. We like the firmer ride from the adaptive dampers, but we’re not sold on the variable-ratio steering and rear-wheel steering.

IIHS calls the Lexus RC a Top Safety Pick Plus, with all Good marks and an Advanced rating for front crash protection, with the optional safety equipment, including emergency self-braking.

The RC 200t gets 22/32/26 miles per gallon City/Highway/Combined. The RC F sinks to 16/25/19 mpg, which is good considering its 3958 pounds and big horsepower.

Lineup

Prices for the RC start in the low forty-thousand dollars for an RC 200t and climb to the mid-sixties for an RC F. Standard equipment includes leatherette upholstery, automatic climate control, LED headlamps and taillights, satellite radio, and Bluetooth audio streaming. Options include real leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels with summer tires, heated and ventilated front seats, sunroof, navigation, and 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

Walkaround

The graceful Lexus RC coupe styling borrows from other Lexus models. We see some Lexus GS in the nose, some of the outgoing IS C in its profile, and some IS in its tail. And if you squint it might look like a Scion FR-S. But its surfacing is more subtle, curvaceous from all points of view, with an attractive but thick roofline and sweet kick where the shoulder touches the rear fenders.

The spindle grille looks sinister compared to other Lexus models, as it should given its more aggressive thoughts. Especially on the F Sport models and RC F, which flaunt black mesh instead of the standard bars. The RC F features other aggressions, for example finned vents and stacked exhausts at the rear, under a wing that raises at 50 mph or, in track mode, at 80 mph.

Interior

The cabin ventures the horizontal theme of other Lexuses, including some of the same misfires, for example off-center bits and strangely stacked components. The dashboard is divided into operational and display zones, with the top zone holding the gauges and 7.0-inch navigation screen, and a layered center with the touchpad. The center stack lacks elegance as it rides over the curved console, with no trim to separate a line of vents on the passenger side. And the sound system is mounted out of kilter with the console trim. While we’re at it we don’t like the offset of the LCD screen.

The steering wheel is slightly elliptical, while the high-backed, low-slung seats are wide and supple, with high-density foam under leather that’s elaborately stitched. Big bolsters and shoulder wings. Padded center console. Two occupants are good, but the back seats are merely a beautifully upholstered shelf, that can be folded to access the trunk, except not in the RC F.

Trunk volume is slim, 10.4 cubic feet, just big enough for two golf bags.

Driving Impressions

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the RC 200t engine also comes in the IS and GS sedans, also coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It makes 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which would be great if it were there for you when you floor it, but there is that lag. If you buy an F Sport and keep it in Sport Plus mode, you can get around it.

The new RC 300 comes only with all-wheel drive, biased 30/70 to the rear wheels, and connected to an older 6-speed automatic transmission. Its detuned V6 makes 255 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. That’s not as much as the RC 350, but if all-weather grip is your priority, it’s the RC you want, and it will likely be fast enough. If not, the RC 350 is available in all-wheel drive.

The RC 350 is unchanged for 2016, with its 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque propelling it to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds. Like other V6 engines we know, namely Nissan, Ford, and Mercedes, it has a bit of a coarse growl. the former gets to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, the latter in 6.0 seconds. It will go 143 mph with rear-wheel drive and 130 mph with all-wheel drive, electronically limited because of the tires.

The paddle-shifting 8-speed transmission has Normal, Sport, and Manual modes, and blips the throttle for downshifts. There are also Normal, Sport, and Eco modes for the driver to steering assist and throttle response.

The F Sport package adds adaptive dampers, firmer suspension (but still comfortable), 19-inch wheels, and Sport Plus mode. Available for rear-wheel-drive RC 350s is variable-ratio steering and rear-wheel steering in Sport Plus mode, which quickens the car’s reaction. Imagine a cow falling out of a livestock truck on the freeway in front of you, or a six-foot kangaroo jumping across the two-lane highway at night in Tasmania; rear-wheel steering will help you swerve with stability, to avoid the smash to your spindle grille.

Summary

If it were us, we’d go for the RC 350 for its 306 horsepower, in F Sport trim for the handling. After all, it’s a coupe. Of course, if you want the style while saving many thousands, the new RC 200t is there for you.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
