In a fierce market that wants to capture the young and young at heart with BMW 4 Series, Cadillac ATS Coupe , Audi A5 the RC 200 holds its own.
In its interior hand-sewn sports seats (a bit tight after all it is a coupe), you will find a Mark Levinson premium audio with metallic knobs, ventilated leather seats with electronic adjustment steering wheel, LED headlights, adaptive variable suspension, dual zone climate control, touch auto dimming lights, the remote touch interference ( which is not easy to navigate in and distracting, I think a touchscreen would work best) , eight speed automatic transmission, and with drive mode select ECO, Normal, Sport and Snow.
But how does it drive? beautifully smooth ,quiet and fast. You can go to top speeds within 7 seconds so you will always be on time during dreadful commutes. I drove the RC200 during my birthday week sheer joy as its a pleasuer to drive to some of my favorite places in Arizona. This sexy coupe you guessed it takes only premium fuel and is extremely fuel efficent.
Loved its Safety features are definitely a Lexus signature eight airbags for driver and front passenger: Front, Knee and Side ( 6) and side Curtain (2),Lexus enform safety connect , automatic collision notification, emergency assist button, roadside assistance, backup camera, 2 way lumbar support this turbocharged RC 200 has your safety in every detail.
