The V-8–powered LC500 seems the easy choice inside the lineup, given its lower cost along with higher performance. The hybrid will surely deliver better fuel economy (EPA numbers aren’t yet available), yet of which’s rarely a top priority for buyers of luxury sports coupes. We also weren’t sold on the supposed benefits of the rear-wheel along with variable-ratio steering setups when we first drove the LC, so you might want to try both before shelling out the extra cash for the Performance package. Lexus says the LC will arrive at dealerships in May.
