Product Overview

Lexus UX is a compact crossover in production from 2019. It is powered by small inline-4 engines in petrol or hybrid form or by small electric motor aided by a battery capacity of 54kWh.
Essentially a suited-up Toyota Corolla Cross, the UX nonetheless has a level of amenities that the econ box does not compare. Still, the UX is just a slightly taller hatchback masquerading as "SUV".
A plus is the small 10.4m (34.1ft) turning circle.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Only the petrol-hybrid model will be sold in the UK for the time being. In typical Lexus fashion the UX’s cabin is a festival of creases and folds. It all seems to be built with the integrity and solidity we have come to expect of the marque. The UX combines that precise steering with good body control and resilient grip.

Pros
  • Stylish design
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Rattle and squeak
  • Not the most fun to drive

The Lexus UX sits towards the top of the current crop of upmarket compact SUVs in terms of visual and material appeal. Premium Plus doesn’t only add to the UX’s cabin, either: 18in alloys; privacy glass; and front and rear parking sensors are also thrown into the mix. Even without the trick adaptive dampers and sportier suspension set up that differentiates the F-Sport from its regular rangemates, this entry-level UX warrants consideration.

Pros
  • Sleek, refined interior
  • Comfortable, refined ride
Cons
  • Lack of handling panache
  • No adaptive dampers

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Lexus’s first all-electric vehicle is a more natural rival to the Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2. List price starting at £43,900 and rising to £53,500 if you specify the range-topping (£9600) Takumi pack. Despite the UX 300e gaining Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you still have to navigate your preferred system using the fiddly laptop-style touchpad.

Pros
  • Fantastic range
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Takes up a lot of space

autocar[4]

Sentiment Score 53%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
All versions get a 54.3kWh, floor-mounted battery and single, 201bhp motor. 0-62mph sprint takes 7.5sec and the top speed is limited to 100mph. Range? 196 miles. Our test car showed 162 miles in mild weather, or 182 miles once we killed the air-con. Not an engaging car to drive because the steering is numb.

Pros
  • Stylish design
  • Excellent infotainment

Cons
  • Touchpad is fiddly to use
  • Takes up a lot of space

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The UX goes head-to-head with the likes of the Mercedes GLA, BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40. With a coupe-like profile and sporty driving characteristics, it's closest rival is arguably the BMW X2. There are three grades (aka trim levels) to choose from: UX, F Sport and Takumi. Prices start from around £30,000, but rise to £53,000 for the flagship battery-powered model.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine

  • Decent standard equipment
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment system
  • Poor boot space

Sentiment Score 55%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The new Lexus UX 250h is perhaps not as conventionally ‘SUV’ as a BMW X1 or Audi Q3. Based on an adaptation of Toyota's TNGA platform, the baby Lexus SUV is remarkably good to drive. Using a new 2.0-litre petrol engine linked to two powerful electric motors, it's capable of 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds. Headroom is surprisingly generous given the sloping roofline, and kneeroom is adequate.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment
Cons
  • No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
  • Fiddly touchpad

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Lexus UX 250 E-Four is now available with the option of four-wheel drive. It rides on Toyota's New Global Architecture, used by cars such as the latest Toyota Yaris, Prius and Camry. In addition to that rear motor, there's a two-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine with 150bhp and 190Nm and another electric unit up front. A small battery, charged by regenerative braking and through the petrol engine, allows for electric-only driving for short distances and at speeds up to 71mph.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Efficient hybrid drivetrain
Cons
  • Tiny boot
  • Poor infotainment system

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The UX300e adds a 54kWh battery sitting under the floor and rear seats, while a 201bhp electric motor sits low in the engine bay. Lexus claims a range of 196 miles for a car like ours on 17-inch wheels, although – even in warm weather – a full charge showed us just 165 miles. With the right 50kW charger, you can get back up to 80% charged in 52 minutes.

Pros
  • Fun to drive

Cons
  • Rear seats aren’t great
  • Poor infotainment

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The UX is Lexus's baby SUV, of course – and it sits on the same TNGA underpinnings as the Toyota Corolla and C-HR. In the 300e's case, you get a single electric motor mounted on the front axle, producing 201bhp and 300Nm of torque – enough for a 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds. There's also a 54.3kWh lithium-ion battery that's good for a range of 196 miles, Lexus claims.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

  • Takes some getting used to
  • No Android Auto

Toyota’s rival to Audi, BMW and Mercedes is about to embark on a major drive towards pure-electric motoring. The UX300e is a baby SUV designed mainly with urban use in mind. It has compact dimensions – just 4.5 metres long overall – and a relatively modest battery and range.

All but the entry-level NX 300h S feature a new E-Four four-wheel drive system as standard. Total system output is 195bhp, with enough instant torque – 199lb ft from the front electric motor alone. The origami intricacy of the exterior is mirrored on the inside by the multi-layer dashboard. Material quality is excellent throughout, and neat options include a Mark Levinson hifi and a wireless charging pad for smartphones.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Drive the UX 250h gently around town and its very refined and hushed, smoothly going about its business with minimal fuss. Up front, the plushness continues, with a typically Lexus-like cabin – read top-notch materials as that infuriating multimedia touchpad. It doesn't feel quite as snug and coupe-like in the first row as the designers would have you believe, but in the back the similarities are all too apparent. Stick to a Luxury grade model but spec the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension system for a polished ride.

The Lexus UX is an eye-catching alternative to posh small SUVs such as the BMW X1, Jaguar E-Pace, Audi Q2 and the Volvo XC40. It has an arresting front grille, sharp creases all across its exterior and a rear light that stretches right across width of the boot lid. You couldn't describe the dashboard as minimalist – there are loads of buttons across the dash and steering wheel – but everything feels lovely and well made.

The 2019 Lexus ES offers one of the most comfortable cabins in the business. With the hybrid battery sitting underneath the back seat, the ES 300h offers the same 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space as its ES 350 kin. As great as the ES is, its poor infotainment interface alone could be a deal-breaker.

The Lexus UX 200 has a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission. The UX is far from a sporty ride, but it's competent when you push it a bit. A punchier drivetrain would be welcome, but the UX is a respectable handler.

The 2020 Lexus UX 250h is available in base ($34,500), F Sport ($36,500) and Luxury ($39,700) trim levels. The UX's hybrid all-wheel drive system is similar to (but more powerful than) the Toyota Prius AWD-e. The base model nets you most of the creature comforts and the Lexus Safety Suite 2.0.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The 2020 UX 250h is arguably the best implementation of Lexus' angular SUV design language. Its wedge-like shape makes the most of its sharp lines and functions well in a smaller proportion. Legroom is sparse in the second row and the hybrid's battery pack that raises the rear hatch floor only offers 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

Pros
  • Excellent fuel economy
