Reviews | Lexus LC 500

Automobile: …I'd spec it with the ...awesome-sounding Mark Levinson stereo…

Back in the 1980s and even into the '90s, it was often written that Japanese automakers were great imitators rather than innovators. With the aid of hindsight, I don't think that's entirely true nor fair; few countries have done more to shape the American car industry than Japan, maybe even more so than Detroit. Heading into my week-long sting with the 2020 Lexus LC500 Inspiration Series, I was in a good mood; I consider the LC500 to be one of Lexus' most innovative cars, and it's always nice to spend time with one. But I can still see the point about imitation: In a way, the LC500 is like the Greatest Hits of the sport-luxury coupe class.




Forbes: ...the Mark Levinson sound system in my GX test vehicle sounded phenomenal, and filled the big SUV with deep, rich sound.


The Car Connection: You’re going to want the available 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system for a better listening experience.
