Sadly the Lexus RC F Sport comes in last in this comparison with a score of 165 compared to the Audi S5's 209 and the Cadillac ATS's 195.

Although it comes in last and doesn't stack up well in the points comparison, it's still a good first attempt from Lexus.

Time after time the RC 350 doesn't win these comparisons, but it seems to me that there is a bit more to the car than these comparisons show. The design and the service that Lexus offers, as well as the reliability are all things to consider. And then there is just a personal, visceral response that each individual has to the RC 350, or whatever car they love.

The difference is the RC is more of a grand touring car, more than it is a full on sports coupe

It is definitely playing to a slightly different audience than the cars it is being compared to.
