In a 2018 comparison test that included the Hyundai and Jeep, the Lexus 2019 Sports Car placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another Lexus 2019 Sports Car weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.
The Lexus 2019 Sports Car, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the Lexus 2019 Sports Car doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only Lexus 2019 Sports Car trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
