This is the new Lexus RC, in road-going form. It’s a lither, two-door coupe of the current IS saloon, and is designed to win buyers to the Lexus brand normally default to a BMW 4-series. A5. or Mercedes C-class coupe.

Should the Germans fear from the Japanese pretender? on for the complete CAR story.

Lexus RC what’s new?

The RC is marginally wider, and lower than its IS sister, giving a sleeker that’s accentuated by the flowing surface lines. Not that have noticed that, of thanks to the most outrageous ‘spindle grille’ yet.

Consider the RC in our gallery is riding on alloys and you’ll get a sense of how gaping that monstrous is. It’s sure to be divisive, but the BMW 4-series copped flack for too conservative, and with the Audi A5 long in the tooth, perhaps styling gamble will pay bringing buyers flocking the Germans.

And what engines they have to choose

Refreshingly, there’s a simple of two engines in the rear-drive Lexus RC – the being these are the American engines. The European line-up is yet to be but we expect it to mirror the IS saloon a 2.5-litre ‘250’ V6 and a less but more economical hybrid

In the show car, the top-spec is a 3.5-litre, naturally aspirated V6. Called the RC350, the range-topper rival the BMW 435i and Audi S5 in the US. A RC-F deploying V8 grunt is in 2014.

No manual transmission will be like in the IS saloon.

What’s the inside?

The dashboard design has carried over wholesale the IS saloon – no bad thing, we think. not so great is the inclusion of the same infotainment interface, which is as intuitive as tapping your and rubbing your stomach driving. Here it’s rather than physical though.

The RC seats four passengers in a 2+2 and Lexus claims the seats are using the same method as seats, which provides the situation of decent support and comfort.
