More than a convenient way to access multimedia, climate controls, and navigation. The remote touchpad mimics smartphone operations with ample touch surface area, pulsation feedback, and intuitive pinch, swipe and flick gestures—even integrating handwritten input. Drivers can also quickly access submenus when on screens with multiple options.

Lexus Enform Destination Assist offers convenient 24-hour access to a live response center agent to help you locate a specific business, address or point of interest. If you’re searching for a restaurant, the agent can help you narrow your choices by distance or type of cuisine and can remotely send the destination to your vehicle’s Navigation System. Destination Assist is included for the first year of ownership.

Each detail of the steering wheel is crafted to help improve the feel, enhance grip and reduce driver fatigue. Large magnesium paddle shifters with a meticulously engineered “click” feedback and outboard placement contribute to an intuitive, track-inspired driving experience.

The LC delivers a high-performance braking system with massive monoblock aluminum six-piston front calipers with two-piece brake rotors and large, high-friction-coefficient brake pads for serious stopping power. Proprietary carbon fiber construction, exhaustively engineered Alcantara-trimmed sport seats and advanced steering technologies deliver high performance of a higher order.

One of the most stunning features of any Lexus vehicle to date, the dimensional taillights were inspired by the dramatic glow of a jet’s afterburners. Through the adoption of the infinity mirror principle, an endless dimensional motif is illuminated when lamps are on, and a sleek gray look appears when off. Eighty LEDs on either side create an even illumination with impressive depth and no visible grain.

Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an anti-lock braking system to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake assist helps provide an additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And electronic brakeforce distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.
