2019 Lexus RC: Australian debut set for late 2018


Lexus Australia will bring the facelifted RC line-up Down Under later this year, the company has confirmed.

Key changes for the two-door coupe include an updated design inside and out inspired by the flagship LC coupe, along with suspension, steering and engine revisions for a “sharper and more refined drive”.

Compared to the model currently on sale, the 2019 RC gets new headlights with integrated L-shaped LED daytime-running lights, new bumpers, and a revised mesh insert for the spindle grille.

Out back, there’s refreshed tail-lights with a more distinct L-shaped signature. Filling the arches are a choice of new alloy wheel designs, including 19-inch units inspired by the rims on the LC and LS.

More subtle changes have been made to the cabin, with the MY19 RC offering new ‘Dark Grey Streamline’ elements for the heater control and audio panels, while “enlarged knee pads” have been raised to give a “heightened sense of space”.

F Sport models will be available with Dark Gray Streamline trim inserts, with a total of six different ornamentation options available. Trainspotters may notice the new analogue clock mounted in the dashboard taken straight from the LC.
