Lexus LC 500h Review 2018 – Video


This is the Motorhub Lexus LC 500h Review 2018. We took the car for a drive on roads in Ireland, and I may have fallen in love with it. Watch our video review below.

The Lexus LC 500h has to be the best looking Lexus on the lot. Some may find too many curves going on, but many others will appreciate its beauty. The Lexus LC 500h offers circa 354hp and will take you from 0-100km/h in just 5 seconds. There is also a V8 version of the LC 500 available, which will cover that same distance in 4.7 seconds.

The V6 3.5 litre engine in the LC 500h still has enough to leave a massive smile on any driver’s face. We didn’t get a chance to drive this beast on track, however, on straights – all seems good and for city driving and indeed every day motorway and B-road driving, the LC 500h throws up no major problems.

The biggest downside of this car, other than the entry-level price of €110,000 is the infotainment system. While it may be extremely clever, we found it difficult to navigate through the system and it felt very easy to take your eyes off the road to even do simple things, like turning on the seat warmers or turning off the air conditioning. This isn’t enough though to turn me off the car.
