Vehicle Profile: 2020 Lexus LC
A luxury coupe focused on providing a complete experience
Few vehicles in any segment can claim the same degree of emotional resonance at the 2020 Lexus LC. A lavish banquet for the senses, the new Lexus LC is the prototypical luxury coupe, from its sleek and aerodynamic proportions to its exhilarating performance capabilities to its driver-oriented interior. When you pilot the Lexus LC, others take notice and your heart can’t help but skip a beat.
Pedal to the metal
Incredible power and deft handling converge in the 2020 Lexus LC, which allows you to hug the road around corners and accelerate into straightaways with ease. The expert engineers at Lexus placed the central mass of the engine behind the front axle and pushed the wheels closer to the edges, allowing for near-perfect weight distribution and superior handling dynamics. This ingenious decision also allows for a lower hood position and better seating on the inside, letting you feel closer to the road.
The might of the 2020 Lexus LC is supplied by a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, which puts out 471 horsepower and allows you to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.* This mighty engine leverages a first-in-segment 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission, which creates gear shifts in just 0.12 seconds and learns your habits to provide a more intuitive drive closer to your style.
Inside and out, the 2020 Lexus LC is a specimen that speaks to your refusal to settle for just adequate. The Lexus LC is exceptional in terms of curb appeal, from its innovative dimensional rear combination LED taillamps and triple-beam LED headlamps to its standard glass roof and optional carbon-fiber roof to its 21-inch forged alloy wheels available with the Sport or Performance Packages. With its low-to-the-ground stance, the LC looks poised and coiled, ready to strike down the competition.
When you slide in behind the elliptical steering wheel of the 2020 Lexus LC, you really get a sense of the craftsmanship that can only come from the Lexus “takumi” masters. Every detail is realized with your pleasure at heart — the Alcantara®-trimmed door panels give you the sense of being in a first-class cabin, the aluminum pedals remind you of its race car-like performance abilities and its sumptuous use of leather reminds you that you deserve only the finest things.
In the 2020 Lexus LC, no ride is ever dull. Whether you’re heading to the office to give the big presentation or celebrating with a long weekend getaway, the LC is a constant companion that supplies joy and excitement. Experience the new Lexus LC at your nearest Lexus dealership.
