Blast Away in the Lexus RC
Let’s begin. With steering-mounted controls, your steering wheel is your helm as you control the vehicle’s audio, voice activation, display settings, and cruise control. The RC features Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) to monitor and adjust the shock absorber settings for each wheel and customize the ride based on the road surface and your driving style. Drive Mode Select lets you choose between four driving modes including the ECO mode which moderates throttle response and engine power for an increase in fuel efficiency. Or if you want thrilling throttle and steering responses, go with Sport mode and enjoy!
The Lexus Enform App Suite lets you access your smartphone apps directly on the center-console display, so you can stream your music, check local listings, place restaurant reservations, or buy movie tickets right from the driver or passenger seat. Lexus Enform Destinations offers 24-hour live, en-route navigation assistance during your daily routine or yearly travels. Also, you’ll be able to do it with the convenience of voice recognition, so as you get to know your new Lexus CT, it will get to know you too. You’ll like having the Lexus Enform Remote mobile app right at your fingertips, letting you start your new CT, lock or unlock the doors, check your fuel level, and locate the vehicle.
The new Lexus RC is packed with features, so to learn all about them, contact us at Lexus of Royal Oak and our Sales staff will be more than happy to let you take the RC for a test drive!
A Body Built for Performance…
Rigid and lightweight, the RC balances power and control like nothing else on the road. Paddle shifters are available with the RWD model, giving you the feeling of ultimate control with the RC, taking full advantage of the 3.5L V6. In the available Sport S/S+ modes, the transmission is so advanced that it varies its shifting depending on G-forces, detecting when the vehicle enters a turn and holding a lower gear for an optimal response when accelerating out of the curve. And the RWD RC F Sport gets 14-inch, two-piece front brake rotors with four-pistol calipers and high-friction pads to bring you to a stop faster than you could imagine.
With port and direct injection and an exhaust note resembling that of the LFA supercar, the 3.5L V6 can propel the RWD RC 350 from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds. Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) offers extra torque and horsepower when you need it. And as for the turbocharger, Lexus didn’t outsource its development; the RC 200t’s 2.0L engine uses twin-scroll turbocharger technology and has the ability to switch between the conventional and Atkinson cycles. This translates into quicker acceleration and better efficiency on the road.
And an Interior Built to Accommodate
With bolstered F Sport seats, F Sport badging, leather trimming, and heated front seats and wheel, you won’t ever forget you’re driving a sports and luxury combination car. Dual-zone climate control lets you and your front passenger adjust their preferred temperatures, and a Smog Sensor will sense high levels of pollutants outside and automatically switch the climate control system into recirculation mode.
The RC’s Lexus Memory System personalizes and recalls individualized settings for the driver’s seat, mirrors, and steering wheel. Passengers can enjoy the benefits of this feature too.
