Lexus has just announced the launch of a refreshed version of the RC Coupe for the new year. The biggest highlight of the new model is the addition of a turbo engine to the range in the 2016 Lexus RC 200t model packing 240 horsepower.

This is the same turbo engine Lexus also employs in the NX, GS, and IS 200t models. in the Lexus RC 200t it develops 241 hp and has 258 lb.-ft. torque, which is not really very much. But you have take into account the four-banger is a lot lighter than the normal V6 unit which should make up for the lack of oomph, at least to some extent.

2016 Lexus RC still gets the V6 unit in two power outputs of 255 and 306 horsepower. All models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission except RC 300 AWD which gets a six-speed automatic.
