There's no shortage of luxury amenities available for the 2008 Lexus SC 430.

Standard equipment on the Lexus SC 430, according to Cars.com, includes "tire-pressure-monitoring system and 18-inch wheels;" MyRide.com reports standard power tilt and telescoping steering; power windows; and a navigation system.

Optional equipment on the 2008 Lexus SC 430 as reported by Cars.com includes "a rear spoiler and run-flat tires." MyRide.com adds to the list optional "Liquid Graphite Wheels with All-Season tires and anti-theft wheel locks.”

Family Car describes many features "designed to make grown men and women salivate, such as the wood grain panels that silently glide open or closed over the sound system and the optional navigation system at the touch of a button."

Jalopnik notes that the Lexus SC 430 hardtop convertible can hide its roof within 25 seconds, "all without latches, catches, snaps or covers," while "remaining solid, secure and weatherproof."

One feature of the SC Lexus that receives high praise is the Mark Levinson stereo system--Family Car says to call it mere "radio" is "blasphemy." According to Jalopnik, this system automatically adjusts for top-up or top-down driving, and its nine speakers turn the Lexus SC 430 into a "private concert hall."


The 2008 Lexus SC 430 has all the features one would expect of a luxury vehicle, but the sound system alone may be worth the purchase price.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
