2020 Lexus RC350 Sport
The small sporty coupe is about to get a facelift and like the rest of the range, the 2020 Lexus RC350 Sport will come with changes as well. We expect to see a whole plethora of interesting changes that are typical for these kinds of updates.
Most of them will be visual, but we count on a couple of novelties on the inside. Some reports also suggest a couple of mechanical upgrades, which will provide even better performances. Give all the expected changes, the 2020 Lexus RC350 Sport should arrive a little bit earlier than usual, most likely sometime in the third quarter of the year.
- Powerful engine
- Hi-end interior quality
- Lots of standard equipment
- Stylish exterior
- Small cargo area
- Some rivals handle better
The most notable changes of this update will be in terms of the styling. The 2020 Lexus RC350 Sport is about to come with a couple of revisions. It should be a typical facelift, so most modifications should be made at the front end. We are about to see revisions on areas such as headlights, grille, bumpers etc.
We presume that the flagship Lexus LC coupe will serve as inspiration. Besides various aesthetical updates, we count on a bit of rework on the chassis. Various reports suggest new suspension and brakes, which sound quite likely, considering that the competition is getting tougher and tougher.
On the inside, the 2020 Lexus RC350 Sport probably won’t feature bigger changes. The current model already features one of the finest cabins in the class, characterized by plenty of style and spectacular overall quality. A list of standard equipment is also pretty long, though we could see a couple of new additions for this occasion.
Some of the notable tech goodies are things like a 7-inch touchscreen, 10-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, a USB port, satellite radio, HD Radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes Free and much more.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of this version is a powerful V6 engine. Of course, it is a familiar 3.5-liter engine, which is good for about 311 horsepower and there is a big chance to see a slight boost for this occasion.
It comes with rear-wheel drive, but AWD layout is available as well. If you prefer even better performance, there is an RC F version, which comes with a V8 engine and max output of 467 horsepower, which is enough power to move this coupe from zero to sixty in about 4.4 seconds.
