We can’t wait for the 2018 Lexus LC 500 to be one of the new Lexus cars we have for sale or lease. The flagship performance coupe will arrive at dealerships throughout the country later this year and we’re looking forward to its arrival at our Lexus dealership near Mandarin.

As excited as we are for the Lexus LC 500 to get here, we’re just as eager to tell you that the performance car has been named to Ward’s 10 Best Interiors List. To make the list, the interior of an automobile has to be all-new or meaningfully redesigned for the automotive market in the United States. Every eligible interior is evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Aesthetics & Harmony of Design
  • Materials
  • Ergonomics
  • Safety
  • Comfort
  • Value
  • Fit-and-Finish
  • Communication of Vehicle Information

“We always knew Lexus was capable of a breathtaking interior like we see now in the [Lexus] LC 500 and [the Lexus] LC 500h hybrid,” said WardsAuto Senior Editor Tom Murphy. “The color palette alone for this interior is striking, from the rich crimson ‘Rioja Red’ to ‘Bespoke White,’ which blends ivory, blue, and orange for the customer who wants something truly unique. Our test model came with arguably the most conservative color scheme — caramel beige — and yet the design elements, such as the dramatic door trim with grooves that flow like drapery, immediately won over our judges. We hope Lexus keeps pushing these stylistic boundaries.”

When the 2018 Lexus LC 500 arrives at our Jacksonville, FL Lexus dealership, you’ll see that the flagship vehicle represents the Lexus brand’s future in the context of progressive design. The coupe has the ideal combination of utility, comfort, sportiness, and indulgent luxury.

Jeff Bracken, group vice president and general manager, Lexus, commented, “Working closely with the engineering team, [Lexus] LC [500] designers pursued new means to redefine Lexus style with a dynamic look and the brand’s signature attention to detail. We are greatly honored to have their work recognized by the editors at WardsAuto with this highly regarded award.”

Even though we have to wait a little longer for the 2018 Lexus LC 500 to get to our Lexus dealership, there’s no reason for you to wait to buy or lease one of our premium automobiles. Visit Lexus of Jacksonville on Atlantic Boulevard to find a Lexus vehicle you’ll love today.
