How Much Does the Lexus LC Cost

The 2020 Lexus LC 500 has a starting MSRP of $92,950, and the 

hybrid Lexus LC 500h starts at $97,460. These may seem like high 

prices, but it’s not uncommon to spend around $100,000 or more on a luxury sports car.

How Many People Does the LC Seat?

The LC is a 2+2 sports car, meaning it has four seats in total. 

Leather upholstery is standard, as are power-adjustable front seats 

with heating and ventilation. Upgrades include front sport seats 

with additional side support and Alacantara inserts, as well as a 

heated steering wheel.

The front seats provide all-day comfort. They’re supportive too, 

especially the available sport seats. The rear seats are small, but 

getting in and out of the car is easy.

LC and Child Car Seats

This luxury sports coupe comes with two complete sets of LATCH 

connectors for the rear seats.

LC Interior Quality

The LC boasts a rich cabin full of high-quality materials and soft-

touch surfaces.

LC Cargo Space

There is 5.4 cubic feet of trunk space in the Lexus LC 500, which 

is small for the luxury sports car class. Because of the placement 

of its lithium-ion battery pack, the hybrid model has only 4.7 cubic 

feet of room.

LC Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The LC’s Enform infotainment system comes with a 10.3-inch 

display, a Remote Touch pad controller, navigation, Apple Car 

Play, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a WiFi hot spot, 

satellite radio, HD Radio, and a 12-speaker premium stereo.

A 13-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound system is available. 

Android Auto is not offered.

The remote touch pad is distracting and difficult to use, especially 

while driving, and many functions are buried in layers of menus.

LC Performance

LC Engine: Eager

The nonhybrid LC 500 has a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 

engine that makes 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. It 

comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The hybrid LC 500h has a 3.5-liter V6 engine and two electric 

motors that combine to produce 354 horsepower and 257 pound-

feet of torque. A multistage hybrid automatic transmission comes 


Both power trains provide more than enough pep for most driving 

scenarios. Models with the V8 engine sprint from zero to 60 mph 

in as little as 4.4 seconds. Both automatic transmissions generally 

shift smoothly and quickly.

LC Gas Mileage: About What You’d Expect

The base Lexus LC 500 gets an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city 

and 25 mpg on the highway. That’s below average for the luxury 

sports car class. It’s worth noting that this vehicle comes with a V8 

engine, while many of its rivals have standard turbocharged four- 

or six-cylinder variants. Compared to V8-powered rivals, the LC’s 

estimates are about average.

For something more fuel-efficient, look to the hybrid. At 27 mpg 

in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, the LC 500h gets some of 

the best fuel economy ratings in the segment.

LC Ride and Handling: Confident and Comfortable

This Lexus provides a comfortable ride, and its suspension soaks 

up most road flaws. It tackles turns with the composure expected 

of a sports car, though maybe not with the ferocity of some of its 

rivals. It comes only as a rear-wheel-drive coupe.

automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane 

departure warning, and lane keep assist.

Which Lexus LC Model Is Right for Me

Lexus offers the LC in two main variants: LC 500 and the hybrid 

LC 500h.

The main difference between these two relates to the power train. 

Both have rear-wheel drive and a comparable list of features, 

including a 10.3-inch infotainment display, navigation, Lexus’ 

Remote Touch pad, Amazon Alexa, Apple Car Play, a WiFi hot 

spot, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a 12-speaker premium stereo, and 

satellite radio. Heated and ventilated front seats and power-

adjustable front seats are also standard.

Standard safety features in both coupes include a rear view 

camera, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and the 

Lexus Safety System+ suite of driver aids.

Both cars can be outfitted with the Performance package for 

$5,960. It adds eight-way power-adjustable front sport seats with 

Alacantara inserts, active rear steering, and variable gear-ratio 

steering. The Sport package includes the sport seats, and it can be 

had with a glass roof for $1,400 or a carbon fiber roof for $2,960.

You could also outfit the LC with the Touring package. It costs 

$1,790 and comes with semi-aniline leather-trimmed front seats 

and a 13-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. There’s also the 

All-Weather package, which offers a heated steering wheel for 


Lexus also offers several stand-alone options with both models. 

Some of these include a Torsen limited-slip rear differential($390), 

a head-up display ($900), front and rear parking sensors ($500), 

the 13-speaker Mark Levinson stereo ($1,220), and a carbon fiber 

rear spoiler (just under $1,200).

Lexus LC 500
