The Lexus LC coupe has been updated for the 2021 model year with a host of performance upgrades and some new colorways.
First off, weight has been reduced by 22 pounds as a result of aluminum lower suspension arms, lighter suspension stabilizers, new high-strength coil spring material, and lighter 21-inch rear wheels.
Next, the suspension was retuned for a smoother ride — the length of the front suspension was lengthened, the bound stopper rigidity was optimized, and the rear stabilizers were tweaked for more linear steering input during turn-in.
Finally, Active Cornering Assist (ACA) was added to the LC’s Vehicle Stability Control (VSC). This system helps control cornering by adding brake control to the inner wheels when G-force demands are greater during spirited driving.
The LC will now be available in two new exterior colors: Cadmium Orange and Nori Green Pearl. The 20-inch forged aluminum wheel design have also been refreshed.
Inside, Flare Red leather will replace Rioja Red, and the Bespoke White Leather option has been discontinued. Android Auto has also been added.
