2016 Lexus RC Coupe is now official

Lexus finally presented the all-new RC Coupe, a model that got mainly some upgrades under the hood. Before we talk about them, we have to notice that the exterior styling remains pretty much unchanged.

The Eminent White Pearl finish is new while orange brake calipers and a limited slip differential can be ordered as they are part of the F Sport package.

Power is provided now by a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit producing 241 horses and 349 Nm of torque. You will find this unit on the 200t version alongside with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

At the interior, you will find high-quality materials, sporty seats and the Lexus Enform Service Connect system. The latter brings useful vehicle details at your fingertips by using the official smartphone app.

If you are content with the styling and equipment changes but want more power, the aforementioned 2.0-liter powerplant is not the only choice. Lexus also offers a more potent 3.5-liter V6 capable to produce 255 horses and 319 Nm of torque. This unit is available on the Lexus RC 300.

Compared to the other engine, it has a six-speed automatic transmission but comes with all-wheel drive system that should provide improved performance.
