Lexus Graces RC F And GS F With Adaptive Variable Suspension

Driving a Lexus GS F or RC F on the track or on challenging roads has never been easier, as Toyota’s luxury brand has improved their handling stability and ride comfort by adding an Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS).

Based on driver preferences and road-surface conditions, the system, which offers 30 levels of damping force, switches automatically as required and monitors and controls the damping force at the wheels by using a range of sensors to ensure precise suspension control on all types of roads.

Working together with the cars’ safety systems, the AVS is linked to the Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) and Drive Mode Select Control, prioritizing ride comfort to improve stability in Eco, Normal, and Sport S modes. Additionally, when Sport S+ mode, which switches the powertrain, electric power-assisted steering, and VDIM stability control to their most aggressive settings, is selected, the damping force control focuses on handling stability.

Both cars feature an updated graphics display; there’s also a new grey exterior color for the GS F, and a new black paint for the RC F. The latter also benefits from new machine-finished alloy wheels. Moreover, the RC 350 Luxury and Sports Luxury have received a front performance body damper, which was previously available on the RC 350 F Sport.
