The latest Lexus LC Coupe offers dynamic performance and a luxurious interior, but it’s not as practical as other similar vehicles. It’s a car that you would definitely notice if you see it going on the road.
It is hard to characterize the vehicle, as it’s not exactly a sports car or a muscle coupe. Some might also say that it’s also not a natural GTI. The car’s nature is different from the previous versions, but that makes it more exotic and appealing. The vehicle was launched in the UK in 2017 and in 2020 a new version was revealed. The vehicle offers the both petrol V8 engine and the hybrid power plant which was used in the car that we tested.
It had two electric motor generators and a planetary gearbox. According to the company, the vehicle will be more responsive in real-world driving conditions, because the power management and control software of the hybrid system has been upgraded. They have announced the power output but the combined torque figure has not been announced.
The mechanical changes make sure that there is now a better sense of connection between driver and car and the driving experience is smoother and more linear. Style-wise, the car is just as good as it was four years ago. It looks might be the biggest attraction for the customers. But those good looks don’t ensure that it would be as practical as well.
Its cabin and boot are slightly smaller than the BMW 8 Series or a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupeclass coupe. Taller drivers might not find it much comfortable as the driving position is a little high. The back seats also don’t offer much space, at least, not as much as you expect from a luxury car. The 2020 version didn’t see many changes to the interior and only the infotainment system was modified a little.
But don’t get the wrong idea, it has excellent cabin design and interior materials. It’s definitely a good place to be. It uses a lot of modern technology, but in a way that it feels special and unique. The vehicle offers real-world abilities with good performance, great style, and excellent interior design.
