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 2017 Lexus RC 350?

The rear-drive RC 350 and the hot RC F both receive updated suspensions. And triple-beam LED headlights become available. The regular (non-F) models also have a new design of 18-in alloy wheel and a metallic black finish for the grille. See the 2017 Lexus RC models for sale near you

Which RC 350 is the Best?

An RC 350 with rear-wheel drive and the F Sport package is quite entertaining and well equipped. Find a Lexus RC for sale

The RC 350 ($43,985) also has its own engine and comes with the option of all-wheel drive.

The RC F ($65,140) is the high-performance variant. It has 19-in alloy wheels, power-adjustable front sport seats (driver: 10-way; passenger: 8-way), bespoke suspension, bigger brakes and a dedicated body kit.

Is the 2017 Lexus RC 350 a Safe Car?

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has awarded the 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, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision alert are all optional. Stability control systems in F Sport versions and the RC F allow the driver to set thresholds for those electronic aids.

2017 Lexus RC 350 vs the competition

2018 Audi A5/S5 -- A new generation derived from the fresh A4. Offers 252 hp in regular form, 354 hp as an S5. Superb, classy and quite spacious for a compact coupe.

2017 BMW 440i -- 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. Updated to a 440i (from a 435i) for 2017.

2017 Infiniti Q60 -- All-new for 2017 and an accomplished machine. There's a quick 400-hp version. But avoid the numbing steer-by-wire option.

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe -- Available as a regular C300 right up to an AMG C63. The middle-ground AMG C43 does hit a sweet spot, though.
