2016 Lexus RC 350

What We Like

Typical Lexus high-grade build quality; classy analog clock in the center console; quiet cabin; the ability to enhance a pliant ride with cornering abilities

What We Don't

The way the center screen is set so far back and down that the bottom row of information is liable to be obscured by the center console's lip; all-wheel-drive hardware means less space in the front footwells; extra weight of all-wheel-drive hardware; somewhat anesthetized driving experience


Consumer Rating

4.9/ 5


What's New in the 2016 Lexus RC 350?

Two new variants debut for this model year: the RC 200t and RC 300 AWD. Neither are as powerful as the cars that came out last year, the RC 350 and RC F.

The Enform proprietary infotainment system is upgraded, allowing users to check information about their ride with a smartphone app, or on the LexusDrivers.com website. Sportier versions now have the option of orange-painted brake calipers. 

Which RC 350 is the Best?

A rear-drive F Sport version of the 2016 Lexus RC 350 is the best bet unless all-wheel drive is an absolute necessity. It feels agile and lively. And the whole point of a coupe is to have some degree of sportiness. Find a Lexus RC for sale


How Much Does a 2016 Lexus RC 350 Cost?

The 200t starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, puddle lamps, climate control, 7-in screen, 256-watt/10-speaker audio, rearview camera, Bluetooth and a voice-activated infotainment system. All-wheel-drive RC models also have heated front seats.

The list of options includes moonroof, navigation, park assist, upgraded audio system and a radar-based intelligent cruise control.

F Sport versions bring adaptive variable suspension with a sport-plus mode (for extra stiffness), sport front seats, aluminum pedals, 19-in alloy wheels, high-friction brake pads, TFT instrumentation, variable gear ratio steering and 4-wheel steering. The RC F offers a carbon fiber roof option, which reduces weight and lowers the center of gravity.

Lexus RC 350 Safety

Is the 2016 Lexus RC 350 a Safe Car?

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety awarded the 2015 RC its highest accolade: Top Safety Pick+. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to crash-test the RC.

Hill-start assist is standard throughout the range, but adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, and forward-collision alert are all optional. Stability control systems in the F Sport and the RC F allow the driver to change the activation points for those electronic aids.

2016 Lexus RC 350 vs the competition

2016 Audi A5 2.0T -- A little low on power (220 hp), but comes with the option of all-wheel drive. And there's no shortage of Audi design fans.

2016 BMW 435i -- The big player in this class and absolutely worth test driving to experience its poise and pace, plus the fact that not many other manufacturers can make a car this thrilling.

Used Mercedes-Benz C350 Coupe -- There's a depth to the quality of engineering in Mercedes-Benz vehicles that becomes apparent as soon as the door thunks shut, the engine fires up and the car gets rolling. Continuous improvement over 100-plus years will do that.
