The 2018 Lexus RC 300 F Sport Coupe is a compact luxury coupe offered in a single trim, starting off at a base MSRP of $40,640. For that price, it mainly competes with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, the Audi A5 Coupe, and the BMW 4 Series Coupe. Available in a single trim, the Lexus RC 300 F Sport Coupe offers 2 powertrains. The RWD version is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 capable of making 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. If more power is required, there is also a 260 horsepower-making 3.0L V6 engine that comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission offered in the AWD version. The Lexus RC 300 F Sport Coupe reaches 60 mph from zero in 7.3 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.3 seconds with the V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Lexus RC 300 F Sport Coupe can manage a combined fuel economy between 21 and 26 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 10 striking colors the Lexus RC 300 F Sport Coupe comes in really pull you towards itself.
