Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, though the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Lexus SC. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the 2020 Lexus SC is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to choose from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the 2020 Lexus SC with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Lexus SC Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Lexus SC is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Lexus SC also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Lexus SC with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Lexus SC provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from along the way.
The 2020 Lexus SC is as competent while they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2020 Lexus SC might you should be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Lexus SC is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Lexus SC Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features located on the upper trim levels could be included with the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Lexus SC stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Lexus SC has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so that the front seat need not be scooted all the way forward.
