THE AUTO CHANNEL
This LC Coupe from Lexus is a head-turner inside and out. It basso profundal announces its arrival and the pointed LED head and tail lights give it a sci-fi weapon look that you expect to spit out laser beams to fry the boxy passenger shuttle SUVs.
The beefy 5 liter V8 with its 471 horsepower and 398 torque powering its 10 speed transmission launches to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds yet still manages an 28 combined mpg.
The interior is dressed throughout in premium materials. The leather front seats are both heated and vented and are thoroughly adjustable including lumbar.
Front head room - 37.2 in.
Front leg room - 42.0 in.
Front shoulder room - 56.5 in.
Front hip room - 54.1 in.
The rear seats are best for young ones, small short haired pets or extra storage, but both look good even unoccupied.
Rear head room - 32.2 in.
Rear leg room - 32.5 in.
Rear shoulder room - 49.0 in.
Rear hip room - 43.7 in.
Safety systems abound and include:
Blind spot and lane departure warnings accident avoidance system
Lane keep assist
Rear cross traffic alert
Pre-collision safety system
Post-collision safety system
Emergency braking assist
Remote anti-theft alarm system
This LC has everything the sports driver is looking for and more.
