Lexus RC 300 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.9
The 300 marks the cheapest way into the RC family, making use of the smallest engine; a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit good for 180kW/350Nm.

The 300 marks the cheapest way into the RC family, making use of the smallest engine; a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit good for 180kW/350Nm. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic and shuffles power to the rear wheels.

Like the rest of the RC range, the 300 can be had in three trim levels -  Luxury, F Sport or Sports Luxury - with prices spanning $65,400 to $84,900.

Luxury cars get 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, leather trim, standard navigation, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone climate and keyless entry with push-button start. F Sport cars add bigger 19-inch alloys, a better Mark Levinson stereo and rain-sensing wipers. Finally, the Sports Luxury models get better seats, some fancier cabin furniture and a moonroof.

Tech across all three trim levels is handled by a new 10.3-inch screen (but no Apple Car Play/Android Auto), that is controlled via a uniquely Lexus mousepad controller.

Standard safety kit includes dual front and front-side airbags, as well as front airbags for the second row. You'll also find a knee airbag for both driver and front-seat passenger. Forward collision warning with AEB (and pedestrian protection) is standard fit, too, and so are front and rear parking sensors and a parking camera.

F Sport and Sports Luxury-badged cars add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, along with lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist.
