No safety review of the Lexus RC F has been conducted by the NHTSA or IIHS. The IIHS does have crash test results for the standard RC, and since the two models share the same basic architecture, they should be similarly safe. The RC scored a Good rating in all crashworthiness tests.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
The Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 suite is standard on the RC F and groups together pre-collision with pedestrian detection, low-light pedestrian and daytime bicyclist detection, left turn vehicle intersection support, lane departure alert with steering assist, intelligent high beams, enhanced all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, enhanced lane tracing assist, and road sign assist.
The more traditional fare consists of eight airbags, traction and stability control, ABS brakes, and a reverse camera. Both blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert were added recently.

Lexus is Toyota's luxury sub-brand and is, by association, dependable and reliable. The RC F has been remarkably reliable, although there was a minor recall for 2020-2022 models that concerned a missing weight capacity on the tire label. 2016-2018 models were also recalled for a possibly faulty fuel pump.
The RC F has never received a J.D. Power Ownership Survey score, most likely due to low sales volumes. As a brand, Lexus tends to score well and has received numerous awards related to reliability.
The RC F is covered by a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
