Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Interior finishes are mostly of the high standard we’ve come to expect from Lexus and there’s a definite feeling of luxury inside, but a glut of button controls stop the cabin from looking as smart as, say, a Mercedes C-Class Coupe’s, and the carbonfibre-effect surfaces in F Sport versions feel a little sub-standard. The sculpted leather seats are firm but supportive and front-seat occupants will find comfort easily. Rearward visibility is a bit limited due to the letterbox rear screen, but large door mirrors help, and all models come with front and rear parking sensors as standard.

The 7in central multimedia screen is small by premium standards, and, surprisingly, satellite navigation is a cost option on all but the top-end Premium and RC F versions, although lesser models can mirror some smart phone navigation systems on the screen. F Sport models get a trick motorised dial for the instrument pack that’s derived from the LFA supercar and moves sideways during menu operations.
