Some believe the RC 300h to be the most alluring luxury Sports Coupé on the market, but one thing is for sure - this RC has reinvented the future of hybrid driving, as the world’s first luxury Sports Coupé to feature a full hybrid drivetrain. Developed on the Nürburgring racetrack but intended for everyday driving in built-up or fast moving traffic, the RC 300h features both a pioneering Full Hybrid Drive powertrain and an E-CVT automatic transmission.
Above all, you can expect a truly unforgettable driving experience, with low running costs and an extremely impressive fuel economy assured.
Famously accredited for it’s ‘smooth hybrid powertrain’ by numerous online motoring critiques including WhatCar?, the RC 300h offers the driver the choice between low-speed, relaxed hybrid driving or kicking the engine into gear and experiencing the thrill of high-speed acceleration.
Beneath this sloping bonnet, in addition to the 2.5-litre petrol engine and hybrid system, lies a D-4S direct injection and dual VVT-i valve control. Not forgetting the extremely efficient ‘Atkinson Cycle’ 4-cyclinder engine, which reacts to Start/Stop technology.
Perfectly refined, featuring an exterior framework that wouldn’t be lost on the racetrack; this motorsport-inspired RC is available across three grades, dependant on your specific requirements and preferences. The entry-level ‘Luxury’ grade offers RC fanatics the opportunity to benefit from Cruise Control, Smart Entry and Start System, LED Daytime Running Lights and Parking Assist Sensors.
In comparison, the ‘F SPORT’ variant provides more athletic capabilities, featuring signature sporty styling, triple L-shaped LED headlights with Auto High Beam and Adaptive Variable Suspension.
While our high-end RC 300h ‘Premier’ grade includes Blind Spot Monitor, Lexus Premium Navigation, the 17-speaker Mark Levinson® premium surround system and more.
The RC 300h provides straight-line stability and outstanding cornering capabilities, courtesy of a multi-link rear suspension setup, which was initially used on the GS Saloon. So how does the RC 300h achieve vibration-free precision but maintain such a low weight? By simply combining high-tensile steel and die-cast/forged aluminium components.
Besides a forward-thinking rear suspension setup, this RC features a driver’s seat that has been tailored and engineered to suit, with a low positioning so that the driver can experience the full benefits of the road beneath themselves.
Not forgetting a range of advanced technologies that makes each and every drive unforgettable, from a 7” Multi-Information Screen to Cruise Control, Bluetooth® connectivity and a Lexus Media Display, as standard.
