EXTERIOR: Racy yet classy design. This car can go anywhere and feel right at home, be it a business meeting, a wedding reception or a day at the park with buddies. INTERIOR: The leather seats are extremely comfortable. Front passenger room is more than adequate. Ergonomics are great with the exception of the cup holders. Of course rear passenger room is not the forte of any sport coupe, however, a large 6'3" 220lb. teenager fits back there (to my surprise). Performance/reliability: Where this car absolutely excels. Have had no repair issues. A regularly maintained SC 300 might run forever. Incredible on the curves, heart pounding passing power, top end close to 150 mph (not recommended).
Heated mirrors, heated seats, non-glare mirrors, tinted glass, ABS, traction control, sport performance mode button, memory driver seat and steering wheel (with tilt and telescoping), moonroof.
Only thing I would have changed is the placement and design of the cupholders, and perhaps the ashtray.
Luxury. Perfomance. Both coexisting
happily in the Lexus SC 300 Coupe.
Drive for hours on the interstate and
it will seem like minutes.
The car goes wherever you point it and
requires barely one finger to steer.
Steering by telepathy, I call it.
Drive over the roughest terrain and the
car stays on course. No road condition
upsets this car, such as bumps in mid-
corner. And its quiet. Cant even tell
the engine is running except for the
beautiful sound of the exhaust.
Absolutely beautiful exterior. High
quality paint job, unlike any other
silver on the road. Draws stares. The
interior is perfect; very comfortable
Every switch and button is simple to
get to and adjust with precision. High
quality leather and wood.
Steering a bit too light; could use a
bit more power (but then there is the
SC 400.) Then again, if you want to
keep your driver's license...
