WHAT’S NEW: 2024 LEXUS LC 500 / 500H / LC 500 CONVERTIBLE
TORONTO, ONTARIO – MAY 16th, 2023 – High performance meets high style in the beautiful Lexus LC Series prestige luxury convertibles. With a choice of electrified or conventional powertrains, coupe or convertible body styles, and a number of new features for 2024, the LC Series invites Canadians to experience a new realm of performance and luxury.
“The LC is daring in conception and powerful in execution – designed to deliver exhilarating experiences to our Canadian Guests at every turn,” said Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus Canada. “For 2024, we’ve enhanced this amazing luxury roadster with new connectivity and safety technologies, plus a fresh palette of exterior and interior colour combinations. Whether hard top or convertible, this is luxury motoring at its very best, as only Lexus can offer.”
This beautiful luxury roadster features several upgrades from the previous model year – including the Lexus Interface with a 12.3” touchscreen display, new 21” forged wheel designs, Lexus Safety System + 2.5, and the Panoramic View Monitor safety system. What hasn’t changed? For starters, the LC is drop-dead gorgeous. A sweeping roofline, sensual curves, and a wind-cutting silhouette enhance the LC’s athletic profile. Muscular wheel arches emphasize the LC’s imposing stance. All models now ride on 21” wheels that are pushed to the corners to reduce overhang and increase control. New exterior colours this year include Copper Crest, Ultrasonic Blue Mica, and Iridium.
The LC Convertible features an exclusive four-layer lightweight soft-top, crafted to maintain the LC’s aerodynamic and emotionally charged design whether up or down. Lexus designers and engineered carefully selected the fabric then created special manufacturing processes to ensure optimal tension – both to eliminate wrinkling and improve sound insulation. The soft-top opens or closes in 15 seconds, at speeds up to 50 km/h, while an innovative folding system ensures the top takes up minimal space and doesn’t intrude on luggage capacity.
Inside, the LC’s 2+2 cabin is designed for luxurious comfort. Everyone relaxes in an environment that combines elegance and sophistication, exemplified by upholstery hand-stitched by Takumi craftsmen. Switches and controls are at the driver’s fingertips, while information displays are thoughtfully arranged to reduce eye movement and keep the driver’s focus on the road ahead. Everything extends an invitation to high-spirited driving pleasure. The interior also gets a fresh choice of colours, including Rioja Red and Blue & White two-tone, plus new interior/roof colour combinations.
Guests may extensively customize their LC, inside and out, by opting for a Bespoke Build. This offers a wide range of exterior and interior choices to create an LC that expresses the owner’s unique sense of style.
New this year, every LC series vehicle is now equipped with the Lexus Interface. This North American designed, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-compatible multimedia and connectivity system features a 12.3” touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, and Sirius XM Satellite compatibility. The Lexus Interface incorporates a natural language virtual assistant that enables a voice-first approach to navigation, media, communication, and other vehicle features. In addition, all Lexus Interface connected services may be controlled from a smart phone equipped with the Lexus App. Lexus Interface services on all models include Drive Connect, Remote Connect, Safety Connect, and Service Connect.
Take thrilling to the very edge of control, yet remain absolutely confident: The LC expertly blends raw power, razor-sharp performance, and ride smoothness, so drivers can hit every apex and enter straightaways with unlimited confidence. Lexus designers and engineers collaborated throughout the LC’s development to ensure very component worked together to take advantage of this sporty roadster’s inspired performance capabilities. The body is carefully sculpted to be aerodynamic and makes liberal use of lightweight yet high-strength materials to maximize rigidity, while the rear wheel drive platform confers an ultralow centre of gravity and a 52:48 front/rear weight distribution for an exceptionally sharp yet refined driving experience. Wheel arch vents enhance both aerodynamics and cooling performance. And because Lexus also understands that Canadian lifestyles are diverse and one size doesn’t fit all, the LC is built around a choice of two breath-taking powertrains:
- The LC 500 and LC 500 convertible feature a 5.0L V8 mated to a 10-speed direct shift automatic transmission. This combination produces a thrilling 471 peak horsepower and up to 398 lb-ft of torque, capable of launching the LC 500 from 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds.
- The LC 500h features a 354 net system horsepower self-charging electric Lexus Hybrid Drive with a multistage transmission that includes the ability to operate in manual mode. This model achieves a fuel efficiency rating of 8.1L 100 km (city/highway combined) and is almost as fast as its conventional cousin, able to hit 100 km/h from a standing start in 4.7 seconds.
As a Lexus, every LC is impressively equipped with state of the art safety features. New this year, all models are now fitted with a Panoramic View Monitor plus Lexus Safety System + 2.5 – a portfolio of active safety technologies supports the driver’s awareness and decision-making under a range of traffic conditions and contingencies. Other standard safety systems include, the Blind Spot Monitor System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, an on-board first aid kit, Intuitive Parking Assist, LED brake lamps, and eight airbags. Convertibles are also fitted with an active roll bar system.
