The attractive 2019 Lexus RC will come with some nice updates. Latest reports suggest that we are going to see various kinds of novelties, including visual improvements, as well as some mechanical tweaks. This is a small sports coupe, which designed by Toyota several years ago.
It originally came in 2014, so we can easily conclude that it is close to the mid-point of its production cycle. In this period, we are usually seeing a facelift and this model will not be an exception. The 2019 RC will come with various changes.
The testing model has been spotted already and it is clear that there are some nice visual updates to come. Besides new styling, we could see changes in other aspects as well. Some fresh things are expected inside, where we could see not only new visual details but also more equipment. Changes in mechanics are possible too.
2019 Lexus RC changes
Just like every facelift, this one will be also mostly about visual improvement. However, this doesn’t mean that there will not be changes in some other aspects. Let’s start from begin. Base design characteristics will definitely remain the same. The 2019 Lexus RC will continue with a familiar two-door coupe body style, featuring same lines and overall shape. On the other side, various new details are expected. The test mule has been spotted on the road. If you look at its camouflage, it is easy to conclude that there are many changes to come.
Those will be changes usual for pretty much every facelift. We are about to see several new things at the front, including new bumper with larger air-intakes. Also, expect to see things like new color options, wheels design etc. On the inside, some nice changes should also come, including more equipment in the standard package.
2019 Lexus RC engines
This small luxury sports car comes with three engines in the offer. Initially, there were two engines in the offer, but the company later added a 2.0-liter turbo engine. This is the smallest unit in the range. However, it offers plenty of power. It delivers around 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The next one is a version with a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine. This unit delivers much more power, which eventually provides better performances. It has a total output of 310 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is a hi-performance F version, which features a large 5.0-liter engine with a max power of 467 horses. It comes in a pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This version features amazing performances. With such amazing output, it is no wonder that it needs around 4.3 seconds to reach 60 mph, while a top speed goes over 170.
2019 Lexus RC F will also get a significant update
This mid-cycle refresh will also include 2019 Lexus RC F, which is a hi-performance version of the base model. As we already mentioned, this model features a large 5.0-liter V8 engine, with 467 horsepower. Besides more power, it also comes with several other modifications. There are some unique visual details, as well as a different list of standard equipment. For this update, the company will prepare various novelties.
Just like with the base model, most of them will be in the visual aspect. The 2019 Lexus RC F will come with things like new front lip spoiler, revised shape for the front intakes, and rear bumper diffuser insert. Some novelties inside should come too.
2019 Lexus RC release date and price
The 2019 Lexus RC will probably come in the last quarter of the year. It should keep the same price, which starts around 40.000 dollars.
