2020 Lexus RC Overview

What's New

The 2020 Lexus RC continues to be one of the most aggressively styled and refined sports cars on the market. While Lexus didn’t make any changes to the regular RC line, the automaker introduced large changes for the sportier RC F.

Power for the RC F is up slightly. The 5.0-liter V8 now pumps out 472 horsepower, up five from last year. In addition to the bump in power, the RC F has also been on a diet and is down 55 pounds. Stickier tires and updated chassis and suspension calibrations ensure it'll feel sharper to drive than before, too.

Also new for 2020 is the addition of a new RC F Track Edition model. It’s a limited-edition sports car that puts an even greater emphasis on performance by being 177 pounds lighter than the outgoing RC F thanks to a titanium exhaust system, aluminum suspension components, lighter alloy wheels, and carbon fiber components.

A massive rear wing and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes are also included with the RC F Track Edition. Production is limited to 400 units globally, and only 50 of those are heading to the United States.

Choosing Your Lexus RC

The RC is available in six trims: RC 300, RC 300 F Sport, RC 350, RC 350 F Sport, RC F, and RC F Track Edition. Pricing starts at $42,320 including destination for the RC 300 and climbs all the way up to $97,825 for the RC F Track Edition.

Engine Choices

There are four engine options for the Lexus RC. The RC 300 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, while a 3.5-liter V6 is available on the RC 300. The RC 350 features a more powerful version of the V6, while both RC F models get a 5.0-liter V8.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)

3.5L V6311 hp280 lb-ft23 mpg
5.0L V8472 hp395 lb-ft19 mpg

The four-cylinder, 311-hp V6, and V8 are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 260-hp V6 gets a six-speed unit. All trims come with standard rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available on all but the RC F models.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Lexus claims the entire RC lineup is rated to seat up to four, though the rear seats are barely usable in this coupe. Instead of seats, think of them as extra storage space. Cargo capacity is small for the segment with just 10.4 cubic feet of space in the trunk.

Safety Features

Every RC comes with Lexus Safety System Plus, a suite that includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are available for $600, while front and rear parking sensors are reasonably priced for an extra $500.


The RC comes with a 7-inch touchscreen with Lexus Enform App Suite. Other standard features include Bluetooth, a 10-speaker audio system, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, satellite radio, wi-fi hot spot capability, and Siri Eyes Free.

Navigation and a 10.3-inch display with an in-dash DVD/CD player are available throughout the lineup through the Navigation Package ($1,645).

RC 300 - From $42,320

Standard features for the RC 300 include dual-zone climate control, a 10-way power driver’s seat, an eight-way power passenger’s seat, LED headlights and taillights, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and synthetic luxury upholstery.

The Premium Package ($2,390) bundles blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, and more. A moonroof is a $1,100 standalone option.

RC 350 - From $45,250

The only change for the RC 350 over the base trim is the 311-hp V6, which means buyers are paying $2,930 for its services.

RC 300 F Sport - From $47,390

Standard features for the RC 300 F Sport include adaptive suspension, a unique Sport S Plus drive mode, performance brakes, 19-inch wheels, an F Sport body kit, and LFA-inspired instruments. Otherwise, it's equipped just like the RC 300.

Orange brake calipers are available for $300, while a Torsen limited-slip rear differential is $390.

RC 350 F Sport - From $50,320

The RC 350 F Sport combines the 311-hp V6 from the RC 350 with features from the lower F Sport trim. A dynamic handling system with variable gear ratio steering becomes available for $1,900.

RC F - From $65,925

The RC F comes with a limited-slip rear differential, adaptive suspension, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and LFA-inspired instruments.

A Performance Package that costs $11,400 becomes available with the RC F. It brings all of the features from the Premium Package and a carbon fiber roof, exterior components, and interior trim.

RC F Track Edition - From $97,825

The incredibly limited RC F Track Edition comes with carbon fiber exterior components, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, red Alcantara interior trim, and a titanium exhaust system as standard.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Lexus RC has a striking design and excellent safety features, though the coupe’s performance isn’t exactly stellar. This is why the RC 350 F Sport stands out as the best value in our opinion. It comes with a more powerful engine and the performance-oriented suspension, which help give the coupe some much-needed athleticism.
