Lexus LC sheds weight, gets transmission adjustment and Android Auto for 2021
The Lexus LC is good looking from almost every angle. It's no surprise that the car's mid-cycle refresh comes with equipment and features upgrades instead of the traditional fascia changes.
The sports coupe has lost 22 pounds for the new model year and gotten suspension updates designed to deliver a smoother and softer ride. This was achieved by adjusting electric absorber controls, and optimizing the rigidity of the bound stopper and rear stabilizer. Active Cornering Assist has been added.

The LC 500, the gasoline-powered model, has had its 10-speed automatic transmission timing and logic changed. The LC 500h, the hybrid model, has had its multi-stage hybrid system shift timing updated. Power plants remain the same in both cars.
Lexus is adding Cadmium Orange and Nori Green Pearl to the paint job options list for buyers joining Caviar, Obsidian, Smoky Granite Mica, Atomic Silver, Liquid Platinum, Ultra White, Infrared, Nightfall Mica, and Flare Yellow.
The car's 20-inch forged allow wheels with Dark Graphite finish have been refreshed.

Inside, the Rioja Red interior color has been replaced by a Flare Red leather upholstery option. Black leather and Toasted Caramel leather remain available. Bespoke White leather has been discontinued. All models retain Satin Metallic ornamentation.
The car's 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display has been updated and Lexus has added Android Auto to the system, which already featured Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration.
The 2021 Lexus LC is expected to go on sale later this year and be priced similarly to the 2020 model, which started at $92,950.
