2018 Lexus RC 350 Review

from the expert editorial team

What it is: This aggressively styled four-seat coupe comes with a choice of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive or a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with either rear- or all-wheel drive. It’s another step in Lexus' ongoing effort to attract younger buyers, and it also comes in performance-oriented F Sport form. The various versions of the RC compete with the Audi A5, BMW 4 Series and Cadillac ATS. The high-performance V-8-powered RC F is covered separately in the Research section.

New for 2018

Forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure warning with steering assist, and adaptive cruise control are standard. Last year’s RC 200t is now called the RC 300 and retains a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive. V-6 versions gain 5 horsepower; the all-wheel-drive RC 300 is now rated at 260 hp, and the RC 350's V-6 makes 311 hp. The optional navigation screen grows to 10.3 inches. Enform safety and service features are now provided free for 10 years instead of one, and a one-year/4-gigabyte trial of the Enform Wi-Fi hot spot is included.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
