32.7KViews

Mirror-breaking beauty looks is what the Lexus RC 350 F Sport is all about. From the exterior it looks like an exotic Japanese sports coupe and the interior is exactly as luxurious as you’d expect Lexus to associate their name with.

A smooth 3.5 liter V6 engine powers the car beautifully; the 8 speed transmission has done justice to the gear shifting on the Sport S and the Sport S+ modes.

RC 350 F will do a 0 – 100 km per hour in 5.9 seconds on the Sport S+ mode which we found a bit slower than most cars in its class, but mind you we are talking about competing with the likes of Porsche 911 here.

On twisted mountain roads, the handing of 2019 Lexus RC 350 F Sport is very impressive. While driving on the highway, the car is super smooth and impressively quiet. We also rate the car high on ride comfort; be it getting stuck in slow moving traffic or sharper fast turns.

If you are looking to be fuel efficient, the RC350 F drives itself on a default ECO mode that substantially cuts off power to the engine making it ideal for city driving in rush hour.

2019 model of the RC 350 F Sport has had slight design changes with new front and rear bumpers, modified front and rear lighting and a new 19 inch wheel design.

Headlights are Triple LED with an Auto Leveling Function that come with a cleaner as well.

The F-Sport has a mesh grill design that makes the car look bold and wider than it actually is.

Overall aerodynamics of the car are very balanced and its styling is expected to turn heads even when you are driving the car around the city, remaining well within the speed limits.

Interior:

The RC 350 F-Sport has an enviably neat and comfortable cabin. 8 way powered front seats are made up of luxurious leather that is perforated to ensure seating ventilation. Driver legroom is generously spacious with a console-mounted knee pad.

The adjustable steering wheel is leather and has all standard audio and cruise controls. The gear paddle shifters are placed conveniently right behind it.

A new analog dashboard clock, improved ignition switch button and better design on the cup holders are just a few improvements from the previous models.

Even at faster turns, the front seats remain comfortable. The rear seating room is virtually non-existent, you can only seat small children.

The RC 350 F Sport comes with dual-zone automatic climate control that is adjusted by touch-sensitive slider controls.

Infotainment can be controlled by a touch-pad located near the gear stick. It might be a while before one gets to perfectly operate it.

You can switch between ECO, SPORT S and SPORT S+ drive modes using a rotary dial placed right next to the gear stick. The turn of the dial also changes the diver display to reflect performance and speeds.

The cargo space on this car is better than most rival cars of its class and one can fit in a large suitcase and 2 small carry ons.
