2018 Lexus RC Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+

Lexus RC Crash Test

The 2018 Lexus RC has earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick+, the highest ranking awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for crash test results.

The RC’s front crash prevention system was upgraded for 2018, improving that part of the test from an advanced rating to a superior rating. There is one caveat, however — only RCs without the premium headlight package are included in this recommendation. The triple-beam L headlights received a marginal grade for visibility.
