The Parkers Verdict

The Lexus RC is a left-field choice in the coupe market, and none the worse for it. We love its high-quality build, and huge amounts of promised reliability – we just wish it were sharper to drive, and you could get it with a manual transmission to make use of its excellent engines.

But if you want a good-looking coupe that’s as smooth as any other Lexus, the RC should be right up your street. As for those wanting more excitement, the RC F should be a rare and very capable alternative to those more obvious German alternatives. Is it a class-leader? No, but it’s likeable, and if you’re a Lexus fan already, the RC won’t disappoint.
