Lexus started the 2015 model year with one version of the then-new RC series performance coupe: the RC 350. A year later, four varieties were on sale for 2016, including an RC 200t base model and a super-powered, track-ready RC F. That made the RC 300, with a lower-powered V6 and a lower price than its RC 350 mate, the midlevel member of the regular RC trio.
Visually, the RC coupes differ little. Each is highlighted by a familiar, sizable spindle-style grille. Their sleek, sporty bodies seem to exude muscularity, whichever engine lies beneath the hood. Unlike the RC 350, which comes with either rear-drive or all-wheel drive, the RC 300 is offered only with all-wheel drive. As with other Lexus models, an F Sport version is available.
