About the new LC partial improvement

Lexus made some improvements to the new LC (LC500h/LC500) and announced it on September 30, 2021. It will be released after November 2021. In this partial improvement, we aimed to further deepen the ride quality and improved the basic performance. The specifications of the coil springs and stabilizers and the control of the shock absorbers have been optimized to improve the feeling of contact with the tires, the linearity of the vehicle response to steering input, and the controllability in high cornering G regions.

Vehicles equipped with the Lexus Dynamic Handling System (LDH) have optimized VGRS and DRS controls to achieve good response and agile driving. From low speeds to high speeds, by balancing the optimization of the vehicle posture and controllability, it has improved the fun to operate and the sense of stability.


For the exterior color, “Sonic Iridium” is newly set for all LC models. Following the convertible model, “Terrain Khaki Mica Metallic” is also added to the coupe model. The coupe model LC500h/LC500 “L package” comes standard with 21-inch forged aluminum wheels with “polished finish + black paint”.


“Blue & White” and “Marine Blue” as its exclusive roof color are newly set for the convertible model.
