Editor's Overview

The 2015 Lexus RC is a new coupe from the luxury Japanese automaker and the first mass-produced, fixed-roof 2-door model from the brand in over 15 years. Available with rear- or all-wheel-drive, the RC 350 and RC F high-performance variant fill a gap in Lexus' lineup and are tantalizing considerations for younger, well-heeled buyers seeking a 4-passenger premium sports coupe.

The tire pressure sucks on these cars.

I like all the features and the color. I hate the price and that people ding the doors all the time on purpose.
