Auto Trader verdict:
We’re pretty sure most folk will agree that the RC is one cool looking coupe. It’s beautifully built, impressively specified, and surprisingly comfortable. It is pretty portly, however, and as a result, it’s not as good to drive as BMW 4 Series Coupe. Normally we’d be happy to accept this compromise, but were less convinced by the RC’s two powertrains. The lack-lustre turbocharged engine isn’t particularly quick or refined, and it’s also overly fond of a drop of unleaded. Alternatively, while the Hybrid’s is cleaner and able to run solely on electric power, its virtues are undermined by even greater bulk and a truly frustrating transmission.
