Lexus LC 500 Coupe Review (2021 Edition)

With the comfort of a luxury car and looks of a sleek sports car, the Lexus LC 500 Coupe is here to steal hearts.



The 2021 Lexus LC has is more like a luxury car than an exotic sports car. The LC model is available either with a naturally-aspirated V-8 or a V-6­–hybrid powertrain. The vehicle offers a smooth ride, and both the powertrain models offer significant power to the car. The car’s most distinctive feature is its plush interiors, which have borrowed elements from the LS luxury sedan and the iconic LFA supercar.

The thing that makes the 2021 Lexus LC different and new is the addition of the LC500 convertible, a power-retractable soft top fitted for luxurious open-air cruising. Other additional features include a reworked suspension and a feature called Active Cornering Assist, which improves the car handling capabilities.

There is the standard Android Auto feature that joins the Apple Car Play in terms of its infotainment. The interiors are revved up in Flare Red leathers that replaced last year’s Rioja Red option. New 20-inch wheels speed up the car. The 2021 Lexus LC 500 is available in two colors of Cadmium Orange and Nori Green Pearl.Lexus, Lexus lc 500, Lc, Lexus lc500, Lexus cupe, Lc50, Lexus lc 500 price, Lexus 500, Lexus lc 500 convertible, Lexus lc 500 black
