The 2019 Lexus RC 300 Coupe is a compact coupe that offers only one trim with a base MSRP of $41,145. For that price, it mainly competes with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 4 Series, and the Audi A5. With standalone trim, the RC 300 offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L Turbo Inline-4 capable of making 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 260 horsepower-making 3.5L V6. The former engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission whereas the latter is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The RC 300 reaches 60 mph from zero in 7.3 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.3 seconds with the 3.5L V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the RC 300 can manage a combined fuel economy of between 21 and 24 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 7 striking colors the RC 300 comes in really pull you towards itself.
