2021 Lexus LC Is Updated And Loses Weight

The under-appreciated Lexus LC gains features and sheds weight for 2021.

  • Changes are below the gorgeous skin and include Android Auto!

  • Suspension improved for a smoother ride.

  • Unsprung weight drops 22lbs.


We’d be lying if we said that the Lexus LC was one of our favorite $100,000+ cars but the fact is that it is an incredible automobile. Only 74 found news homes in 2019 compared to 130 Audi R8 and 264 BMW 8 Series. However, it handily outsold the Acura NSX, a flop, at 22 units, and the Nissan GT-R, an antique, with 53 sales. In order to keep the slow momentum going, the 2021 Lexus LC gains a few niceties to keep interest exactly where it is.

2018 Lexus LC 500 Review

Physically, the new LC can be spotted as a new 2021 by its new 20-inch alloy wheel with dark graphite finish and two new exterior colors: Cadmium Orange and Nori Green Pearl. It’s much of the same onboard with Android Auto now added as well as a new Flare Red interior leather hue.

The revised suspension, now made mostly of aluminium, the 2021 Lexus LC 500 has dropped 22lbs. Other than weight loss, the chassis is now tuned for an even smoother ride with adjusted electronic dampers and Active Cornering Assist is now standard. Other mechanical improvements include a transmission update for the petrol-powered 500 and a shift-timing update for the 500h’s multi-stage hybrid system.

Between you and us, this won’t change a thing in the LC’s take rate but we’re glad Lexus hasn’t abandoned the beautiful car.
