Rear-wheel drive models start at $57,050

Lexus has done one of the most unthinkable things in automotive pricing in Canada in quite some time.

Instead of leading with a base rear-wheel drive model for their new RC 350, Lexus has decided to make an all-wheel drive model the most affordable option in the lineup.

For 2015, the Lexus RC 350 Premium Package will be available with all-wheel drive starting at $54,000. Premium package models pack in a navigation system, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated seats, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety systems, back-up camera, and a power moon roof for starters.

However, if you’re looking for rear-wheel drive brilliance, be prepared to pay $3,050 more as the only right-wheel drive models are equipped with F SPORT packaging. AWD F SPORT models start at $57,150.

The RC 350 goes on sale in Canada this fall.
