Lighter, Safer, Sharper New Lexus LC 500 is Here, Just for RM1.25 million
Greetings, millionaires! The new Lexus LC 500 is now here in Malaysia, and it is officially open for booking!
For 2020, Lexus has introduced a number of enhancements to the LC 500 with particular focus on enhancing its comfort, safety and handling, starting from the weight reduction. Thanks to the lighter 21-inch wheels and the forged aluminium front lower arms, the car is now 10kg lighter.
They have also added a new performance damper in the rear, and a new Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) control system, both of which enhance ride comfort while the Active Cornering Assist (ACA) control has been tweaked to operate in conjunction with the Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), Dynamic Rear Steering (DRS) and the re-configured Electric Power Steering (EPS) to provide more precise and crisp handling and a more tactile steering response.
Inside, new additions include a Power Easy Access feature where the driver’s seat slides away once the ignition is switched off, on top of the steering column stow-away feature which makes egress ever more convenient.
The new LC 500 also comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a new 10.3-inch Electro Multi Vision (EMV) high definition screen that is capable of displaying HD (1280×480) videos and images.
Added to this is a host of Lexus Safety System + (LSS+) features like the Front Pre-Collision System (PCS), Automatic High Beam (AHB), Lane Keeping System and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) that work on top of the 8 airbags on board and a new park feature where the transmission is automatically placed in “P” when the door is open to avoid accidental runaways.
Powering the new Lexus LC 500 is a 5.0-litre V8 Dual VVT-i engine and a tweaked 10-speed Direct Shift automatic gearbox producing 470 hp and 540 Nm of torque, enabling the car to do the century sprint in 4.4 seconds.
There is an addition of two new body colour options as well – Blazing Carnelian Contrast Layering and Terrane Khaki Mica Metallic with two new interior colours – Flare Red, and Black and Orange.
Priced at RM1.25 million, the new LC 500 is offered with a comprehensive five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
