Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RC 300 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus RC 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus RC 300 and the Lexus RC 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RC 300 as you will with the Lexus RC 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus RC 300 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus RC 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus RC 300 and the Lexus RC 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RC 300 is about the same width as the Lexus RC 350. When looking at overall length, the Lexus RC 300 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus RC 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus RC 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus RC 350.

Handling
The Lexus RC 300 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus RC 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus RC 300 has less horsepower than the Lexus RC 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus RC 300 and the Lexus RC 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus RC 300 as you will in the Lexus RC 350.

Warranty
The Lexus RC 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus RC 350.
