Following recent launches of
its stunning new LC flagship coupe, LS flagship sedan and three-row RX luxury
utility vehicle, Lexus is opening a new gateway into the brand with the UX, its
first-ever compact luxury crossover. Making its world debut at the 2018 Geneva
Motor Show, the UX introduces a bold new design, ultra-efficient new
powertrains and innovative luxury features.
The UX is the first Lexus to use the brand’s GA-C
(Global Architecture – Compact) platform. The super-rigid structure and low
centre of gravity help the UX deliver exemplary handling agility and ride
comfort, along with a distinctive driving personality.
The 2019 Lexus UX will be
available in two versions: the UX 200 introduces a new 2.0-litre, four-cylinder
engine coupled with a new Direct-Shift continuously variable transmission
(CVT), while the UX 250h pairs the same 2.0-litre gas engine with a new fourth
generation hybrid drive system. New technology that networks with navigation
allows the UX 250h to proactively optimise hybrid operation by learning, and
adapting to the driver’s routes and driving habits.
The UX makes a bold statement in a segment
characterised by conventional SUV themes. The striking design, notable for its
crisp, prominent sculpting and dramatically flared front and rear fenders,
envelops a cabin that provides a driver-focused cockpit and a roomy, relaxing
space for passengers.
Making urban exploring easier, the vehicle’s
proportions allow for easy maneuverability, with a best-in-segment 34-foot
turning circle. A 103.9-in. wheelbase contributes to a smooth, stable ride and
cabin roominess, while the 177-inch length lets the Lexus UX easily slip into
convenient “compact only” parking spaces.
