The 2022 Lexus RC Coupe is offered with three engine options, RWD or AWD, and F Sport derivatives that turn up the style. All RWD RC 300 models are powered by a 241-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the RC 300 AWD comes with a 260-hp V6. RC 350 models get a 311-hp 3.5-liter V6 motor. Power is sent to the rear via an eight-speed auto transmission or all four wheels via a six-speed auto.
Standard features across the board include dual-zone climate control, perforated NuLuxe interior trim, an illuminated entry system, a ten-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and an eight-way powered front passenger's seat. The seven-inch infotainment display includes Bluetooth streaming and compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa. Driver assistance features include a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and intelligent high beams.
Although each RC trim comes packed with premium options, Lexus offers even more in the form of optional packages. The Navigation Package adds a larger 10.3-inch display with navigation, dynamic voice command, and Lexus Enform destination assist for $1,645. The $2,725 navigation/Mark Levinson package includes a 17-speaker high-end Mark Levinson sound system and machined aluminum control knobs, along with the contents of the Navigation Package. However, this upgrade compels you to select the $1,790 Premium Package too with its heated and ventilated front seats, a seat memory system, heated and auto-dimming exterior rearview mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a power-adjustable steering wheel. On its own, the power moonroof will add $1,100 to the bill.
Limited to F Sport variants is the Torsen limited-slip rear differential at $390.
