The 1996 Lexus SC 300 sports coupe was equipped with new e auto-dimming electrochromic inside and outside rearview mirrors as standard equipment. Chrome wheels and a one-touch power moon roof were now available as options.
The 300 would continue to use the same 3.0 liter inline six, which provided 25 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. The sleek SC could speed from 0 to 60 mph in seven seconds and through the quarter mile in 15.6. While the coupe was very quick, soft suspension and handling took away from the overall sporting feel. In what seems like an odd criticism, some drivers felt that there should be more engine noise. If the SC 300 was too refined for true GT performance, it was only because it was a Lexus. Such remarks do not represent the compendium of driver feedback, but only the longings of more enthusiastic drivers. However, the SC 300 is more Lexus than sports car.
