The Top Gear car review:Lexus RC
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
Like the outside, it’s bold and wilfully esoteric within. This can be construed as good and bad: the LFA-like motorized dial on sportier models, part of the near-essential F Sport trim, is lovely, as are the hugging seats. The defiantly odd ‘electrostatic’ heater controls and infuriating infotainment touchpad, though, are less lovely. An interesting place to be, but it might take some acquaintance.
Typically for two-door, four-seat coupes, the rear cabin isn’t palatial and getting in and out is tricky. Passengers will find it tolerable but it’s not a place for long journeys. A rather meagre 340-litre boot might also limit its touring abilities – best go two up and use the rear seats for stowage.
