Lexus typically impresses in the cabin department and the LC is no exception. In the main it’s a beautifully finished design that feels solid and high quality.

The driving position is very low but you’ve got good visibility around the car. We found the steering wheel ergonomically pleasing to hold, but perhaps a little over-appointed with buttons.

At some angles the lip over the multimedia screen can create a shadow that makes it hard to see sat-nav directions, and we found the drive mode controls on top of the instrument binnacle a fraction too far away from our ideal driving position, which meant a stretch.

The multimedia system itself is controlled via the latest generation of Lexus’s touchpad, which is better than ever but still not a patch on the rotary solutions employed by many rival companies.

Is it comfortable?

Built for long-distance cruising, the Lexus LC is a very comfortable car. We’ve only had a chance to try the larger 21-inch wheels available on Sport and Sport + models so far but even with those it rode excellently across a variety of surfaces.

We were especially impressed with the seats, which are beautifully shaped and highly adjustable. They’re available in leather or Alcantara.

The cabin itself is a quiet environment too, with minimal wind noise at motorway speeds and engine roar only really audible when you want it to be.
