Lexus LC Coupe: will my gadgets work?

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

There’s also a 12-speaker multimedia system with a 10.25-inch screen, Bluetooth, USB and aux-in connections and DVD player as standard.

Adding the Sport Package to your LC nets you sports front seats, Alcantara upholstery, a carbonfibre roof and 21-inch alloy wheels.

The Sport package includes a carbonfibre roof on the Lexus LC Coupe

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.

Safety

4.5 out of 5 4.5

Lexus LC Coupe: will my child seats fit?

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.

You get airbags all around the cabin, traction and stability control systems, hill-start assist, a tyre pressure warning system and a blindspot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

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. 

Interior & boot space

2.5 out of 5 2.5
  • 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

Lexus LC Coupe: will my family fit?

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. 

 


 

Lexus LC Coupe: will it fit in my garage?

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. 

 


 

Lexus LC Coupe: will my luggage fit?

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. 

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Lexus LC Coupe compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.

Model Boot space
BMW 6-Series Coupé 460 litres
Bentley Continental GT Coupe 358 litres
Maserati GranTurismo 260 litres
