I've been reading over a few Lexus RC F Sport reviews and have noticed that there is some disappointment with the Sport+ drive and suspension modes. I thought that I'd lay out what the complaints are here and see if some owners could give me their two cents as to whether or not these complaints have merit.
The complaints basically come down to the same thing, the Sport+ mode doesn't really feel all that different from the normal drive mode. Check out what one reviewer had to say about this:
So it seems like the Sport+ mode doesn't really do all that much and the only way to remedy the situation is to take control yourself with the manual-shift mode and those awesome paddle shifters.With the drive mode and the transmission in their sportiest settings, I found that the Lexus is still just a little lazy. Despite having quite a bit of power on hand, the transmission always seemed to find itself in a gear or two taller than I would have chosen for spirited driving on a twisty road. Selective use of the manual-shift mode with steering wheel's paddle shifters largely remedied this, giving me better access to the upper reaches of the tachometer's swing.
A similar problem is pointed out when it comes to the Sport suspension mode. The Sport+ suspension mode is labeled "a bit floaty and soft." That's not exactly what I would expect from a Sport+ driving mode. The reviewer in this case says that the RC F Sport's handling feels like the Lexus GS 350 F Sport, which is a great car, though it is also much larger and heavier. The RC F Sport should, consequently, be more nimble.
Basically they argue that the RC F Sport should feel more connected to the road, and that is what I would expect as well.
Would be happy to get you guys to chime in and let me know what your own experiences are with the Sport+ mode.
