Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RC 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Supra.

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 Toyota Supra, 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 Toyota Supra. 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 Toyota Supra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RC 300 is about the same width as the Toyota Supra. If you go with the Lexus RC 300, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Supra.

Drivetrain
The Lexus RC 300 has much less torque than the Toyota Supra, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RC 300 is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Supra. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Lexus RC 300 offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Supra, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus RC 300 as you will in the Toyota Supra.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus RC 300 than that of the Toyota Supra.
