2019 Lexus LC500:
For 2019, Lexus has made the LC500 even softer, retuning the adaptive dampers to deliver an even more buttery ride. Wisely, Lexus left the drop-dead styling alone inside and out, though we wish it had addressed the car’s one major failing: the finicky touchpad controller (it works like the pad on a laptop) for the dashboard infotainment screen.
Perhaps aware of our past criticisms of the first-year LC500’s sometimes choppy ride with its big 21-inch wheel package, as well as its artificial-feeling rear-wheel steering option, Lexus sent us a 2019 LC500 with neither feature for this test. Instead, this LC rode on the base 20-inch wheels—whose Bridgestone Turanza summer tires have taller, more forgiving sidewalls—and lacked the rear-wheel steering. The omissions helped highlight the 2019 model-year move toward greater squish.
The only spicy aspect of the entire driving experience is the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8. Lacking turbocharging and the oft-accompanying surge of low-down torque, the LC wafts up to speed on a wave of ever-increasing thrust. Drop the hammer when the light turns green and the Lexus feels light on torque. As the engine revs climb, however, the big coupe starts to hustle. The delayed onset of acceleration is, like the soft suspension, totally in keeping with the LC’s comfort-focused vibe. Never does the V-8 whip your neck back—that’d be so uncouth—but instead it slowly presses you into your seat with the deft and firm touch of a seasoned masseuse.
