With summer about to open up across Alberta, there’s no better time to finally get out and enjoy  Calgary and beyond across our province in a Lexus. We’ve been cooped up for almost a year and a half, the majority of our driving over that time being only essential in nature. Summer 2021 is looking like we may finally be able to travel more for leisure, and do so as safely as possible. There’s no better option to tackle the warm months than cruising in a Lexus. Particularly in two stalwarts that are primed for the hot season, the Lexus RC and the Lexus LC, two stylish performance coupes that deliver incredible driving pleasure while maintaining all the typical Lexus features you love. Read on and learn from us at Lexus of Royal Oak why Lexus vehicles are perfect for summer, and why the RC and LC are excellent choices to ring in the lifting of restrictions.

Why Summer is Made for Ultimate Lexus Driving Pleasure

What makes a summer vehicle? We can’t be blamed living here in Alberta if we get too bogged down and focused on winter driving, it dominates a huge portion of our year after all, but that takes away from the gorgeous summer months we have available, even if too few for our tastes. While Lexus has your winter vehicles and all-season vehicles in full measure, from the RX to the NX to UX and beyond, nothing says fun like a luxurious, sporty coupe for summer. A summer vehicle needs to be stylish, thrilling, agile and loaded with the latest in connective and safety tech for your modern demands. Sound familiar? Lexus cars check every box, delivering the ultimate in summer driving pleasure, expertly felt on both the Lexus RC and LC as defining highlights.

Lexus RC: Thrilling Luxury Coupe Performance

Do you have a desire for dynamic and thrilling performance out of your vehicle? Look no further than the 2021 Lexus RC, a coupe that puts the driver first in a cockpit centred around you, the pilot. All-wheel drive comes along with its high-performance powertrain, which reaches 311 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque out of its 3.5L V6 engine. You’ll cruise the highway in sumptuous power that’s always under your control. It’s low-to-the-ground style leads back from its signature grille with cutting character lines that further define its sport coupe style. Luxurious elements like ventilated seats will keep you cool even on the hottest of summer days. Connect your phone through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and blast your favourite warm weather tunes through the Mark Levinson surround sound system. Built for your latest summer adventure, the Lexus RC is the latest evolution in thrilling coupe performance.

Lexus LC: From the Racetrack to the Streets

How about taking on the summer in a vehicle equally fit for the racetrack as it is for casual road trip driving? Everything about the 2021 Lexus LC is elite, from its ground-breaking design to its top tier performance to every luxury appointment found across the coupe. Available as a gas or hybrid, the gas engine features a 5.0L V8 engine that puts forth 471 horsepower and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in a scant 4.4 seconds. That’s power fit to only be explored on a gorgeous summer day. Futuristic in style, the LC cuts a sporty profile, with a low hood and perfectly sculpted roofline that serves to highlight its sensational curves, ready to cut through the wind. Even on the nicest of days, you won’t want to leave the interior thanks to its mix of comfort and luxuriousness with hand-stitched leather or Alcantara upholstery cradling you in its sumptuous seats. Make your latest drive easier with Lexus Navigation with Remote, and enjoy high quality sound just like in the RC out of the Mark Levinson system, with AppleCarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Get your adrenaline pumping this summer in a dynamic Lexus LC.
