TORONTO, ONTARIO, March 28, 2018 – Lexus invites Canadians to enjoy amazing experiences enabled by luxury automobiles that deliver head-turning design, supple details, class-leading safety, and pulse-racing performance. Headlining the Lexus exhibit at this month’s Vancouver International Auto Show, drivers can get up close and personal with the thrilling performance and evocative style of the 2018 Lexus RC series – featuring new “Black Edition” models.
“This new Black Edition of the RC epitomizes the thrilling performance of the RC series like never before,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “We’re excited to showcase this new model alongside our full line up of Lexus vehicles here in Vancouver, in our completely redesigned exhibition booth that inspires visitors to experience all that Lexus has to offer.”
Highlights in the Lexus exhibit include:
2018 Lexus RC Black Editions
Offered on both the 2018 Lexus RC 300 (Starting MSRP: $58,700) and 2018 Lexus RC 350 (Starting MSRP: $64,100), these exclusive editions are built on the F SPORT models. Black Editions feature 19” F SPORT wheels with matte black accents plus black chrome grille and window frames. Inside, black seats feature orange stitching, plus a blackwood heated sport steering wheel and black edition wood print trim. As F SPORT models, the RC Black Editions include drive mode select with custom mode, active sound control, adaptive variable front and rear suspension systems, and more. New for 2018, all RC models feature revised engines with all wheel drive, and are standard equipped with both Lexus Safety System + (including lane departure alert with steering assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beam, and dynamic radar cruise control) and Enform Audio (featuring Enform App Suite 2.0, Enform Safety Connect, and – on the RC 300 – Scout GPS).
2018 Lexus RX L
The Lexus RX L seats up to seven in comfort and luxury, but it’s more than an RX with an extra row. Lexus designers and engineered worked closely to craft an all-new body design to ensure that the third row would be every bit as comfortable as the second – even as this new model offers class-leading cargo space behind the rear seats. All RX L models include luxury touches such as leather seating and tri-zone climate control, the convenience of a hands-free power tailgate, an impressive set of safety systems headlined by Lexus Safety System +, and more.
Other 2018 models
Other Lexus models of note on display in Vancouver include the refreshed 2018 Lexus NX compact SUV, the new 2018 Lexus LS flagship sedan and 2018 Lexus LC premium coupe, plus a full line-up of luxury hybrids built around the planet’s most popular and proven advanced hybrid powertrain technology.

In addition to a newly designed central booth, Lexus also invites patrons to Experience Amazing by visiting the exclusive Lexus Lounge, which offers an immersive and visually striking journey through the brand’s core values of Takumi Craftsmanship, Brave Design, Exhilarating Performance and Imaginative Technology alongside a range of its luxurious vehicle offerings.
The 2018 Vancouver International Auto Show takes place March 28 – April 1 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
