Lexus Canada has announced the 2019 version of its LC 500 flagship coupe is priced at $102,750, an increase of $650 compared to the 2018 model's most recent price. The LC 500h hybrid variant sees a bump of $250, to $118,850.
There are no changes to the car for 2019: the LC 500 is once again powered by a 5.0L V8 making 471 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque, which is channeled to the rear wheels by a 10-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid LC 500h matches a 3.5L V6 with an electric motor for 354 hp and 369 lb-ft; this version trades the 10-speed for a continuously variable transmission that also sends power to the rear axle.
Standard features in the LC 500 include a 13-speaker sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, heated and ventilated front seats, adjustable-temperature heated steering wheel, semi-aniline leather upholstery, sunroof and 20-inch wheels. The Lexus Safety System + suite is standard, too, with collision warning, pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert and lane keep assist, radar cruise control and automatic high beams.
LC 500 models can be optioned with a performance package that brings its price to $116,250 for 2019, up from $115,600. It brings a limited slip differential, four-wheel steering, variable gear steering, 21-inch wheels, retractable rear spoiler, sport seats with eight-way power driver's seat adjustment, Alcantara and leather upholstery, carbon fibre roof and scuff plates and an Alcantara headliner.
The LC 500h comes standard with the performance package.
Lexus says the 2019 LC coupe is available now at its dealers across Canada.
