2020 Lexus RC Interior

2020 Lexus RC Interior Review


Interior: 5.6

The 2020 Lexus RC has a high-quality cabin and comfortable front seats. However, the second row and trunk are small, and the infotainment controls can be confusing.

  • "The RC's well-made interior is stylish, comfortable, and spacious, but only for front-seat passengers." -- Car and Driver
  • "The RC F has a solidly constructed and upscale cabin." -- Edmunds
  • "The RC’s interior is a very nice place to spend time. The front seats are marvelously supportive on long drives, the sightlines good in all directions, and interior materials and build quality are above reproach." -- Kelley Blue Book


The Lexus RC seats four people. The front seats are comfortable and offer well-positioned side support. However, front headroom can be tight for taller people, and there are some noticeable blind spots. The second row is very cramped.

Synthetic leather upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat are standard. Optional features include leather upholstery, driver's seat memory settings, heated and ventilated front seats, front sport seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a heated steering wheel.

For securing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. The lower anchors are easy to find, and it's simple to attach the car-seat straps.

  • "Its wild exterior styling also comes with an interior drawback: big blind spots. The front seats in our RC350 F Sport test vehicle were supportive, well cushioned, and wrapped in supple leather." -- Car and Driver
  • "Most drivers will find the seating position to be roomy with enough adjustability for both sporty driving and comfort. Getting in and out is much easier than it is in other sports cars because you don't sit so low in the car. There's good visibility toward the front, though the thick rear roof pillars create blind spots. The back seat is small and nearly unusable by people." -- Edmunds
  • "Keeping in mind that the RC is a small coupe, don’t expect much in the way of rear-seat accommodations or front-seat headroom." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 RC include dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and a rearview camera. The standard infotainment system includes a 7-inch screen, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a 10-speaker stereo. Options include a 10.3-inch infotainment screen, navigation, a moonroof, and a 17-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound stereo.

Both of the RC's infotainment setups are troublesome. The standard screen is set far back on the dashboard and is hard to see. The larger display is crisper, but it’s operated with an unintuitive touchpad controller. Using the system while driving can be distracting and difficult.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Optional safety features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and front and rear parking sensors.

  • "The system is controlled by a knob and a series of buttons on the center console. When equipped with one of the two optional navigation packages, the system swaps the rotating knob for a laptop-style touchpad that is frustrating to use because of its imprecision." -- Car and Driver
  • "The biggest issue is that the RC F is saddled with one of the worst infotainment interfaces in the industry. Its touchpad system is difficult to use, especially while in motion, and some of the menus are confusing to navigate." -- Edmunds
  • "Gauges are clear and easy to read, and the available 10.3-inch infotainment screen responds quickly to input. Regrettably, that input must be carried out through a rather frustrating touch pad and joystick interface. Unlike the systems in Audi, BMW or Cadillac cars, this one is difficult to operate when the vehicle is in motion, although over time we think most people will grow accustomed to it." -- Kelley Blue Book


The Lexus RC has 10.4 cubic feet of trunk space, which is low for a luxury small car. However, the trunk opening is wide, and a standard split-folding rear seat adds utility.

  • "Cargo space is limited in the RC, so if you're looking to take a long road trip, you'd better pack light. While the RC's trunk swallowed four of our carry-on cases, it managed to add only an additional five with both of its rear seats folded." -- Car and Driver
  • "Overall, there's not a lot of room for your stuff in this car. But at least the trunk opening is wide, and the trunk floor is deep and flat, making what space there is more usable." -- Edmunds
  • "Storage space is likewise limited. While Lexus says that the trunk will hold two sets of golf clubs in a wide channel at the rear, at 10.4 cubic feet, volume is moderate at best, though about average for a coupe in this class." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
