If you are familiar with Lexus brand, you probably know that the “F” badge means nothing less than spectacular performances. Among small luxury sedans, there are many models that feature V8 engine and such a huge amount of power. That will continue to be RC F’s strongest point. Considering the recent facelift that has brought a lot of aesthetical novelties, the 2020 Lexus RC F will most likely come without bigger changes. Of course, we won’t exclude those minor tweaks in terms of new standard features and similar things.
- Powerful V8 engine
- Excellent handling
- Upgraded styling
- Luxurious interior
- Not so comfortable on rough roads
- Tight rear seats
Compared to the base RC, this one comes with lots of upgrades. This is a performance version, so a completely new chassis setup seems logical. You can count on a new suspension, brakes and much more. Of course, there are numerous visual upgrades as well. This includes a completely new bodywork, with new bumpers, spoiler, rear diffuser, bigger wheels and much more. Just like the rest of the lineup, this version has also received a facelift a few months ago. There are some pretty significant changes in terms of styling, which mostly affected lighting groups. Both headlights and taillight came with a completely new shape. While the grille keeps its familiar looks, the front bumper gets a new design, with a new shape of air intakes and slightly changed overall layout.
As you can see, the exterior of the 2020 Lexus RC F gets a lot of upgrades, but the interior comes with a couple of updates too. It also takes inspiration from the LC coupe and gets a familiar analog watch. Also, a lower center console has been slightly revised and now features bigger knee pads for more comfort. Still, keep in mind that this is a sporty version, with tuned suspension and excellent handling as a priority. If you are looking for something more comfortable, go for some more basic version. The 2020 Lexus RC F definitely won’t give a decent legroom on rear seats, so the IS could be a more reasonable choice if you need a passenger-friendly vehicle.
Finally, the most exciting thing about this small sports car. You will hardly find such a small car with such a big engine. The 2020 Lexus RC F will continue with the same 5.0-liter V8 engine. This mightful unit delivers amazing 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and, besides amazing performances, it offers spectacular sound.
