The LC line-up is a relatively simple one. You can have the standard car (with either 500 or 500h engines), or have it equipped with the Sport Package, or the Sport + Package.
Following that choice, there are only three optional extras.
Standard Lexus LC Coupe equipment
The base-spec LC comes with a high level of standard kit. Highlights include:
- 20-inch alloy wheels
- Glass roof with sunshade
- LED lights at both ends
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Heated and ventilated semi-aniline leather front seats
- Heated steering wheel
- Keyless entry and ignition
Adding the Sport Package to your LC nets you sports front seats, Alcantara upholstery, a carbonfibre roof and 21-inch alloy wheels.
Moving up to top-spec Sport + Package gets an active rear spoiler, carbonfibre scuff plates, Alcantara interior trim and the Lexus Dynamic Handling upgrade, including rear-wheel steering, variable ratio steering and a limited-slip differential.
Optional extras: Lexus LC Coupe
Your only options are a Mark Levinson 13-speaker sound system upgrade, a colour head-up display and metallic paint.
The basic equipment list includes equipment that is standard across all versions of the Lexus LC Coupe.

We’re expecting the Lexus LC Coupe to fare well in the safety stakes. It hasn’t yet been crash-tested by Euro NCAP but we predict it’ll score the maximum five stars simply thanks to its impressive roster of equipment.
On top of that there’s Lexus Safety System +, which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision safety, traffic sign recognition, active lane-keeping assistance, a sway warning system and automatic high-beam headlights.
- Adults will struggle to fit in the back
- Low, wide car isn’t easiest to park
- Boot is tiny in V8 and smaller still in hybrid
The Lexus LC Coupe doesn’t fare particularly well in this respect. While the two front occupants will be comfortable, a six-foot-tall adult simply won’t fit in the back. The sloping roofline means there’s no headroom at all, so it’s suitable for young children only.
We found the LC quite simple to park in a bay, but its wideness will make it a tight fit in a garage. Acoustic parking sensors lend a hand, however, and the rear-wheel steering on Sport + models also makes life a little easier in this respect.
On paper the LC’s boot measures 197 litres for the V8, but the LC 500h’s hybrid system eats into this further, leaving just 172 litres of room. This isn’t a brilliant performance from the Lexus.
