It’s clear that this level of detail translated to the design of the 8” LCD instrument cluster in terms of the font used, the manner in which information is displayed (the most important information is closest to the driver’s sightline), and the UI of the head-up display, which does a much better job of presenting key information than virtually any other HUD.

Lexus’s next-generation Remote Touch Interface touchpad control was a joy to use, especially when one thinks of the joysticks that were hard to control in past vehicles from the manufacturer.

Fit and finish was excellent although there was one small area that was slightly off. This was of little concern in the pre-production models we were driving and there is no chance that the Takumi masters would allow this in the final product.

Our Ultra White hybrid came with the Mid Brown interior option, new for the LC. By far the most elegant of the options, it bathes the interior with various and complimentary shades of brown and would be my choice when ordering.

Indeed, each final inspection of the LC 500 and LC 500h will take place in a booth walled with thick glass with LED lighting from all angles where the vehicle not only gets the white glove test but is checked for the finish of all surfaces, evenness of color, interior quality, and of course perfect functionality of all components. According to Lexus, the thick glass allows computerized monitors to detect the smallest abnormalities.
