Lexus RC gets a new multimedia systemNovember 5, 2019
This can be considered virtually the only change in the version of the new model year for the Japanese market. The international version, however, also changed insignificantly.
Lexus RC is now equipped with a multimedia system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It allows you to control a number of smartphone functions, including playing music using the interface and controls of the multimedia system with a wireless connection to a mobile device.
Lexus reports that the RC has a 10.3-inch multi-function screen, but does not specify whether it is in all trim levels. In total, there are three Lexus RCs in the Japanese market: the base, Version L and F Sport. Moreover, each level of equipment is available with any of the options for the power plant. There are also three of them – two gasoline and one hybrid.
The base is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline turbo engine, the cars equipped with it are designated by the RC 300 index. The second gasoline engine is a 3.5-liter V6, cars with it have the RC 350 index. Both gasoline engines are combined with an 8-speed automatic . The third version of the RC 300h provides a combined power plant based on a 2.5-liter engine. Drive in all cases, only the rear.
The Lexus RC version of the new model year in Japan does not have any differences in appearance and interior decoration, and there are no external changes in the world market except for cosmetic improvements in special issues.
In Japan, the Lexus RC costs 5,679,000 – 6,158,000 yen for a version with a 2.0-liter turbo engine, 6,127,000 – 6,657,000 yen for a hybrid, and the most expensive is a modification with a 3.5-liter V6 – 6,494 000 – 7,217,000 yen. Cars are already on sale.
