What's New in the 2018 Lexus LC 500h?

The LC is an all-new model for 2018.

Which LC 500h is the Best?

The LC 500h and its hybrid powertrain is an impressive engineering feat, and there's certainly something to be said for its superior fuel economy. However, the LC 500 is the more thrilling and memorable car, and isn't that the point of a car like the LC in the first place? Opting for the Touring package is recommended.

2018 Lexus LC 500h vs the competition

2018 Porsche 911 -- The 911 is one of the best at toeing the line between sports car and GT. With its engine in the back and its styling comparatively subdued, it's a different animal to be sure, but you'd be smart to check it out.

2018 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class -- The SL is a convertible, and far more luxury-focused than the LC, but it's also one of the few GT cars in this price range of comparable quality.

2018 Jaguar F-Type -- Though starting at a lower price point and boasting only two seats, the F-Type is another GT car with gorgeous styling that'll provide an unforgettable driving experience.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT -- The GT is costlier than the LC and comes out with two seats, but its front-engine, rear-drive GT concept is similar. Indeed, it is literally called GT.

Used Bentley Continental GT -- The Lexus is so beautifully crafted and well-engineered that we think the LC can be realistically compared to a new Bentley (or an Aston Martin, for that matter). Nevertheless, the Continental is far more expensive, so a used version would need to be considered at this price point.
