The Lexus has always been known for its focus on luxury cars and driving performance and the new Lexus LC 500 has certainly managed to maintain this reputation. The latest car news is that Lexus has now expanded the Coupe luxury car Lexus LC 500 family to include its convertible sibling, offering a thrilling joyride with the top down! The exterior of the new Lexus LC Convertible is stylish and achieves a superb profile with the top down or up.
Lexus LC 500 Design:
The Lexus LC 500 Convertible echoes the coupe car with its sharp and refined driving dynamics. This convertible car model has a unique structural rigidity which offers a low center of gravity and prime weight distribution.
The Lexus LC 500 coupe and convertible retain similar handling dynamics. Because of the difference in weight between the Lexus LC 500 Coupe and Lexus LC 500 Convertible, Lexus had to tweak the Convertible’s suspension to complement these refined changes in weight between the two platforms.
The 5.0 L V8 engine combined with the unified 10 speed automatic transmission gives the driver an exceptional driving experience. This unique V8 engine will produce 471 HP.
Lexus LC 500 Specs and Features:
Both of these sports cars, the Lexus LC 500 Convertible and LC 500 Coupe have an impressive 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display providing immediate, simultaneous access to audio or climate controls and various systems, including the voice-activated navigation system.
The new Lexus LC 500 will feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, allowing you to seamlessly cast your device’s interface onto the vehicle’s multimedia display making it easier to view maps or stream your own music.
Lexus Alexa is a new app that provides the convenience of Amazon Alexa while you are driving. You have access to thousands of the same functions you get with Alexa at home! You can also use it to control compatible smart-home devices such as lighting, thermostat, and security systems.
The Lexus Remote service lets you lock and unlock doors, start the engine and set the desired temperature, check the fuel level, and more all through your smartphone, smartwatch, or any device enabled with the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Lexus LC 500 Safety:
The new Lexus sports car LC 500 will include the standard Lexus Safety System+. This includes the following:
– Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
– Lane Departure Alert with Lane Keep Assist
– All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
– Intelligent High Beams
– Blind Spot Monitor
– Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
The Lexus LC 500 convertible model will include extra safety features, such as the active roll bars that are designed to deploy upward when a rollover is detected. When not deployed, these roll bars are hidden from view to retaining the convertible’s attractive profile when the top is down.
