2015 Lexus RC Comparison In Virginia | VA

vs 2015 Audio A5 vs BMW 4 Series vs Mercedes-Benz C-Class

When you're looking for a high-quality luxury coupe, you know you're going to have to do your homework. Not only are there many to choose from, but the fact that you're going to be putting down a substantial amount of money means you don't just want the right one, you want the perfect one. Pohanka Lexus has compiled a Virginia area 2015 Lexus RC competitor comparison to show you why the 2015 Lexus RC 350 is the right choice over the 2015 Audi A5 2.0T Premium Quatro , BMW 4 Series 428i, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350.

All four of these vehicles are coupes, meaning that they're sporty, two-door cars with enough seating for the driver, front passenger, and two rear passengers. When it comes to power, the 2015 Lexus RC offers a 3.5L V6 engine, while the 2015 Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series only have a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class also has the 3.5L V6, but the Lexus RC has the more horsepower and torque than the competition, with 306 and 277 lbs-ft, respectively.

The transmission of the 2015 Lexus RC is an 8-speed shiftable automatic, while the Audi offers a 6-speed manual and the Mercedes-Benz only offers a 7-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The 2015 Lexus RC also has a larger gas tank than the Audi and BMW, and that means less frequent stops at the pump.

When looking at the safety features of all of these luxury coupes, you'll notice that that have nearly identical safety features. This is as it should be, because no one should have to compromise when it comes to safety, but the 2015 Lexus RC comes standard with the electronic parking aid backup camera with dynamic gridlines1, which makes it easy to see any obstacles that might be behind you while in reverse. And although these coupes may be small in size, the 2015 Lexus RC has the longest overall length and tallest overall height.

The interior amenities of the Lexus RC are also quite impressive, with a 10-speaker sound system that beats the 9-speaker system of the BMW 4 Series. If you want even more power for your soundsystem, you can upgrade to the Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System2, which features a 17 speaker, 835-Watt, 12-channel amplifier with a CD/DVD player. The seating surfaces of the Lexus RC are true leather, which improves on the leatherette upholstery of the BMW and Mercedes-Benz models.

There's even more to discuss in this 2015 Lexus RC comparison in VA, but you'll have to stop by your local Virginia Lexus dealer and visit out new-vehicle showroom to see what the 2015 Lexus RC is really all about.
