One of such tweaks is the new adaptive control software designed for the 8-speed automatic transmission. This will be a standard feature on the RC 300 and RC 350 models. As a result, these two models will enjoy better gear changes such as selection at higher gear while driving to maximize fuel consumption.

The new 2021 Lexus RC offers a new stabilizer at the back of the car, with reduced wall thickness and increased diameter. Also, there is a new high-strength aluminum upper arm for the reduction of weight and improvement of its rigidity. The automaker has also replaced the old-foot-operated brake pedal with the new electric parking brake.
