Review

The RC is a distinctive coupé with very low running costs if you opt for the hybrid. But while it’s well equipped and feels pretty plush inside, its small boot and rear seats and thrashy engine count against it. The RC F’s mighty V8 might sort the engine issues, but it’s expensive to run and not as fun to drive as a Mercedes C63 AMG.
