Lexus Sharpens the RC for 2019

For the 2019 model year, Lexus decided to make the RC coupe a little sharper. It’s not been a bad car to drive, but the RC definitely lacks the edginess you’d understandably expect from the way it looks.

No, there’s no big power bump, unfortunately. Lexus says it fine-tuned the suspension and powertrain to make them more responsive. Aerodynamics also have been elevated through simple touches like a fin added to the side window mold. It may not be the huge revolution some wanted, but this is only a refresh, not a new generation of the RC.

Speaking of appearance, Lexus put the RC under the knife, but you’ll still easily recognize it anywhere. Among the aesthetic changes is a new front bumper, grille, and headlights. The rear bumpers gained air ducts at the corners, complementing the sportier new taillights. Ten paint colors are available, including the new Blue Vortex Metallic. Different grille mesh, 19-inch wheels, and other design elements come on the RC F Sport.
