The 2023 Lexus LC500h looks similar to the outgoing version. Little has changed on the exterior and it continues to feature a contemporary 2-door coupe design. It has the brand's spindle grille with triangular LED headlamps up front and slim LED taillights with dual exhausts at the rear.

The interior of the LC500h also looks identical, except for the all-new infotainment system. It now uses a 12.3-inch touchscreen instead of a 10.3-inch display and touchpad combo.

Powering the LC500h is a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine that makes 296 BHP and 348 Nm. It is paired with an electric motor that makes 178 BHP and 330 Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 249 km/h.

Re: Lexus launches the updated LC500h coupe in India

The pre-facelift had a beautiful dashboard with the screen integrated within the dash, an anologue clock and some detailing on the passenger side. Now they had to plonk in a bigger screen that juts out and without the detailing, the far side A/C vent looks lost.

Also having heard the eargasmic V8 IRL, beats me why they don't offer it in India. Anyway it is a low volume CBU import, then just give the choice to the customer. The 'hybrid only' policy that they follow in Europe can't be quoted here, as they sell the LX diesel in India.
