Trim and Powertrain

Lexus offers the LC 500 Convertible as a sole trim package. This rear-drive drop-top gets its roaring power from a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes 471 horsepower. A ten-speed automatic transmission rounds out the powertrain. According to the official fuel economy estimations done by the EPA, it returns 15 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Standard Features and Optional Packages

Those behind the wheel of the LC 500 Convertible will appreciate it just as much when the weather isn’t warm and sunny, thanks to an adaptive variable suspension, a drive-mode selector, aluminum pedals, magnesium paddle shifters, an active sport exhaust, and performance-inspired instrumentation. Lexus also graces it with a power soft top, comprehensive underbody bracing, active roll bars, a wind deflector, a windscreen, proximity keyless entry, LED exterior lighting, push-button start, and 21-inch staggered-width alloy wheels. For high comfort, the LC 500 Convertible comes with leather upholstery, eight-way power heated and ventilated front seats, and dual-zone climate control.

Buyers who want even more can select upgrades such as the All-Weather Package, which contains a heated leather-trimmed steering wheel and a windshield wiper de-icer. The Touring Package incorporates the All-Weather Package’s elements plus semi-aniline leather upholstery, an Alcantara leather headliner, an upgraded sound system, enhanced upper body heating, and embossed headrests. For those with really specific tastes, the Lexus Bespoke Build program enables buyers to customize their LC 500 Convertible. There are options for wheel choices, interior upgrades, and unique exterior treatments.

Advanced Driver Aids and Safety Technology

The LC 500 Convertible is equipped with Lexus Safety System+ 2.5, a collection of advanced driver-aid technologies. This state-of-the-art equipment includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, adaptive cruise control with lane-tracing assist, road sign assist, and automatic high beams. The car also has blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view monitor, and parking sensors. There is supplemental safety equipment, such as six airbags, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability control, and traction control.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The LC 500 Convertible’s infotainment system now has a 12.3-inch touchscreen – an improvement from the previous model’s center-console touchpad. The system’s components are a 12-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The LC 500 also has multiple USB ports and access to connected services for cloud-based navigation with destination assistance, a Wi-Fi hotspot, emergency assistance, vehicle monitoring, and Lexus app functionality. Versions equipped with the optional Touring Package will get an upgrade to a 13-speaker Mark Levinson sound system.
