New Lexus LC 500h gets a bigger infotainment display. Will it come to India?
Lexus has introduced some major technology upgrades to the new LC 500h hybrid sedan. The new Lexus LC 500h now comes with a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, replacing the previous 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment screen. Besides the larger screen, the infotainment system now claims to come with a more ergonomic positioning, offering better control to the driver.
The Toyota-owned Japanese luxury car brand has said that the updated touchscreen infotainment system comes standard with a panoramic view monitor that combines images from the front, rear, left and right cameras to provide a complete view of what's around the vehicle. The infotainment system also supports dual Bluetooth and wireless versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
