Refinement vs. Sportiness
The 2019 Lexus RC 350 has four selectable drive modes: Eco, Normal, Sport and Snow. Although each gear gets held a bit longer in Sport mode, we didn’t notice much difference between Normal and Sport in any driving conditions. That said, in either mode handling is actually quite good on winding roads. But it seems that Lexus prioritizes refinement over a sporty feel — the RC is extremely quiet, so there’s not much in the way of an exhaust note. And although the ride is smooth, there’s not much feedback for the driver.
