There is no doubt that Lexus makes some of the best quality-built interiors. Well, the 2018 Lexus LC has the best interior Lexus has ever constructed. Every button, switch, and knob on the Lexus LC is of extremely high-quality and is wrapped in a rich metallic trim. Also, everything you see, every panel, every handle is wrapped top-quality leather. This is really the best interior I’ve ever seen in any Lexus and the best interior I’ve experienced this year. Now, some things I found a bit weird. I have no idea why there are three climate control vents on the passenger side. There is a tiny single cup holder placed in front of the center console controls that if you end up using - will cover up the climate controls. Oh, if you’re wondering, the interior color in this specific LC is called ‘Toasted Caramel’.
Tech wise, the 2018 Lexus LC500 comes packed with a range standard features. Those include a 10.3-inch touchscreen display with navigation, Lexus Enform infotainment system, the next-gen Lexus remote touchpad that controls basically everything in the car, a 12-speaker sound system, LFA-inspired instrumentation cluster, Bluetooth with audio streaming, USB-ports, heated and cooled front seats, dual-zone climate control, a rear view camera, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, and much more. Optionally, you can add a $1,000 Convenience Package, a $250 All-Weather Package that adds on heated steering, a $1,790 Touring Package that adds an upgraded Mark Levinson sound system and perforated leather seats, a $900 color heads-up display, and more. No, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is not available and that really sucks. Those two are coming to all Lexus models soon and are currently available only on the 2019 Lexus ES. As spec'd out here, the final price tag my test model comes in at $101,515.
