Lexus RC 300h Coupe (2018 - )

The Lexus RC has a tough job on its hands, competing with popular prestige coupes such as the Audi A5, Mercedes C-Class and outgoing BMW 4 Series. It makes its case with individual – not to mention pretty handsome – styling, impressive build quality and an intriguing financial proposition thanks to its hybrid drive system. Unfortunately, it’s not as polished to drive as its main rivals, and it has some pretty fundamental ergonomic issues. Still, if those things matter less to you than individuality, it’s certainly worth a look.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The RC 300h is designed to compete with diesel-powered versions of the Audi A5, C-Class Coupe and recently retired BMW 4 Series and it makes a rather compelling case for itself. There’s not a vast amount of difference in what you’ll pay for any of them, and because the Lexus clings on to its value as well as any of its competitors, it should treat you just as well financially come resale time.

Fuel economy and CO2 emissions are in broadly the same ballpark, too, but where the Lexus has the advantage is on tax for company car drivers. Because it’s a petrol-electric hybrid, you avoid having to pay the diesel surcharge, meaning lower monthly tax bills. So, if you’re looking for a stylish fleet car, this could prove a very shrewd choice.
