2017 Lexus RC350 sport – Review

If you want to buy a luxury crossover with great engine performance, stable in the driving and rich infotainment system, then is 2017 Lexus RC350 sport a perfect car for you. This sporty coupe has maybe the best features in term of comfort, stability, and equipment in the class, so you will not be disappointed if you choose to buy one of them. However, it still has small cargo space due to the short length and small second-row space, so little older children could be crunched on back seats.

Exterior


Making the new model last time, Lexus has not made many changed in new 2017 Lexus RC350 sport, so do not expect anything in that field for now. This luxury sports coupe has impressive mesh front grille, with gridded upper half and black line which separates it from the lower half. The grille is typical rhomboidal as on Lexus last year. However, the front LED lights are much more softener and slightly curved, following the line of the hood and rounded front end. Small rounded fog lights are like hidden at the ends of the grille, with small thin air intakes protected with thin metallic line in letter L. The side of the car and rear end actually looks more like on sedans, hiding the fact that rear end and cargo space is much smaller than we used to see on large sedans.

Interior

The cabin is unexpectedly comfort and wide, with thin leather on perfectly shaped seats. The manufacturer puts the better equipment in 2017 Lexus RC350 sport and that starts with the large touchpad in the middle of the modern and rich designed dashboard. However, below them are large air vents, which practically make the approach to the touchpad impossible, especially in driving, so there is still a problem in that area. The visibility is provided with special driving position, and that is marked as great in this car.

Engine

The 2017 Lexus RC350 sport has a 3.5-liter V6 engine with eight-speed automatic transmission. That is maybe the only thing which can be pointed as best in the class, due to many complaints about driving. The speed of 60 mph reaches for 5.9 seconds and stops in 120 feet, which is average for the cars in this class, but the driving control and emergency braking have not been well demonstrated on test driving.
