Lexus Announces RC 200t with 2.0L Turbo Engine

Lexus RC 200t F SPORT

The 2016 Lexus RC 200t has just been announced by Lexus Europe, making the year-old coupe the fourth model to be offered with Lexus’ new 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine.

All versions of the RC 200t will feature the eight-speed transmission from the RC F. The F SPORT version has two additional enhancements — a Torsen Limited Slip Differential that adjusts torque distribution to the wheels, and an Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) for on-the-fly suspension adjustments.

(While Lexus Europe is the first to announce the new engine option, it’s a safe bet the RC 200t will be offered worldwide like the IS 200t.)
