Preview of the 2018 Lexus LC 500h and Lexus LC 500
Lexus decided a few years ago to squash it started reputation, by going on an intense styling crusade, that spanned across its lineup. The end result though, particularly in relation to their SUVs, at times cross the line from all my guard, to over style. This time around Alexis got it right, and created an elegant yet striking sports coupe and fuels short as it looks.
There’s not a hard surface to be found in the asymmetrical dash layout, that gives it a driver-focused, but like most beautiful objects. Living with it can be kind of a painting at least when it comes to entertainment. This laptops style touch-pad, is nearly impossible to get right while the vehicle is in motion, in the interface requires sifting through multiple menus, just to access basic functions like the heated seat controls.
As the wheels begin to spin it becomes immediately evident, that the LC is something special. The steering, well not quite raw something like a 911 still plenty responsive. The brakes actually border of Porsche ask. The all-new chassis composed of high-strength steel aluminum and carbon composites, combined with an electronic-controlled suspension, gives the Alexis LC, this incredibly planted feeling corners and high speeds.
Flat out the LC 500 and 500 age, and ash from 0 to 60 and 4.4 and 4.7 seconds respectively. 6500 frontman bound and naturally aspirated v8 ,that puts out 470 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. and the hybrids sisters 3.5 liter v6, good for 354 net horses. routing power to the rear wheels through the VA, is Lexus first-ever ten-speed automatic. which can click off your changes, with the expediency of a dual-clutch but there is a slight communication delay, between the paddle shifters and gearbox.
Yes, the Hybrid employs a CVT but before you go and completely write it off, i gotta say LC is pretty unique. Thanks to what is essentially a four-speed differential, bc bt behaves just like the conventional 10 speed. swap gears and you can even detect a hint of shift shocked, pretty neat.
The two rear seats are pretty much useless for anyone, but small kids, but the front seeds are supremely comfortable. practically no pressure points to a great travel you enter corners. though because they hold you so well in corners, if you’re horizontally challenged, you might find them to be a bit, restrictive.
With a starting price just under $100.000 for the 2018 Lexus LC 500, only a few thousand more for the LC 508 hybrid. Lexus is high-end Grand Tour ,split the gap between entry-level models of the BMW 650i and Porsche Panamera, and more expensive Mercedes-Benz s550 coupe, and BMW i8. Although baseball is coming well equipped with goodies like heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, navigation, a glass panel roof and a 12 speaker Ali assistant by pioneer. you can add in things like a carbon fiber roof panel, 21-inch wheel to replace the standard twenties, a full color head-up display, a speed activated rear wing and rear wheel steering. Still down to its essence dlc is the most beautiful most exciting product to come out of Lexus since well.
