The 2019 Lexus UX is a subcompact crossover SUV whose rivals are the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. It is a small vehicle with an angular style that makes it more stylish than its rivals. It is available in two configurations: the UX 200 and the UX 250h.
The 2019 Lexus UX has sharp edges and deep angles, which define its angular shape. On the front part, it is fitted with a grille comprising the brand’s signature. The grille creates an illusion that makes the SUV look longer than it actually is. Although it is 177 inches in height, it is longer than the X1 and the GLA.
The interior of the 2019 Lexus UX can technically accommodate five passengers but for maximum comfort, it is best suited for four. According to the manufacturer, the driving position is similar to that of a sports hatch, although the seating hip joints are higher and thus allowing for easier entry and exit. It has four different interior colors with leather upholstery influenced by Japanese quilting techniques.
The 2019 Lexus UX is enhanced with a collision warning system that can detect pedestrians both in the dark and during the day. The safety system also includes a forward emergency braking system to avoid collisions. Other additional safety features include automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and a lane tracking system.
The 2019 Lexus UX is fitted with a remote touch interface, a navigation system, and exceptional sound system upgrades. Considering the most recent trends, an Apple car play system might be added to improve the infotainment package.
The 2019 Lexus UX 200 has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 168 horsepower. The front wheels are powered by a continuously variable transmission (CVT). It has an improved off-road response and more linear acceleration.
The UX 250h has the same engine but is fitted with an electric assist motor and a hydride battery pack under the rear seat. These features, in conjunction with the engine, provide 176 horsepower. The UX 250h electric assist motor propels the rear wheels, thus adding the E-Four all-wheel-drive system option for use in slippery roads.
