Default Non F-Sport RC 350

Does an RC 350 exist that is NOT an F-Sport? I like the look of the car, but the rims and interior leather is too aggressive for me on the F-Sport. I would like the larger navigation screen and bigger engine in the 350. I do not see them on Autotrader, etc. Thanks!

Me, too. I prefer the grille to the one on the F-Sport, among other things.

They just appear to be very hard to find, especially the 2019's. Also, I only see them in RWD. Do they make an AWD 350? non f-sport?

"Do they make an AWD 350? non f-sport?"
They sure did in 2015 - that's the car I have. RC350, not an F-Sport, AWD, moonroof, 19" wheels, spoiler, and almost every other option (but not ML Sound). I even got the red one, which seems to be pretty rare as well. This was not a special order; my salesman found it at an out of state dealer, and he traded one of his RCs for the red one I wanted.
So I think you should keep looking.

Thumbs up Yup, non F Sport's do exist...

Just bought a 2015 off lease 18,100 miles thru CarSense. It's InfraRed, has navigation, dark gray interior, AWD, moonroof, - Navigation and Premium Package equipped; in pristine condition.

If you have the infrared, and really like the way that color pops in the sunlight, look into a quartz or ceramic coating. I had Opticoat on it when new, but after some recent work, I just had Gyeon applied, and the result is spectacular (not to mention the ease of washing and the protection of the paint). The car is four years old and I get questions about the paint and compliments in parking lots and at gas stations all the time.
Highly recommended.

If you like the exterior look of the fsport, im about to attempt a fsport grille swap onto my base model. I can let you know how it turns out!

Yeah, I like the look. Postings i've seen say it is not a quick swap, I'd be interested how it goes, how long it takes and how much. GOOD LUCK!!!!
