We hope that the Lexus LF-A-inspired caliber the F-deporte cluster makes his way to the RC. The general design of the interior of Lexus RC is practically a copy of the sedan is, with a cabin – as they sit with the Board on levels. The center of the stack is composed of capacitive touch controls and small buttons for the audio system, along with mouse – like Infotainment Lexus driver ‘. Lexus says that the RC will receive new interior colors, including a clipping color called nail, to provide a high-contrast appearance. 2015 Lexus RC depends on the same platform as Lexus IS, but with a little shorter wheelbase and a track wide. The RC is also a little lower and longer than the sedan. We hope that the coupe Lexus RC 2015 featuring the same powertrain lineup as he is in the United States, that comes with any 2.5 liter, 204 horsepower V-6 in the IS250 or a 3.5 liter, 306-horsepower V-6. All-wheel-drive should be an option with both engines as it is with the sedan, and is expected for the Coupe RC f-sport package also. Sedan models come with an automatic transmission six-speed on all IS250 models and models IS350 all-wheel-drive, with an eight speed automatic traction rear-IS350 models. Lexus should be revealing powertrain details closer to the date of U.S. sale of the automobile, which also is unknown at this time. We are also more eager to know about the next model of high-performance Lexus RC F. Since sedan Lexus is F outgoing soldiers by 2014, could be a time until RC-F debuts.
