The Lexus SUV lineup form of 2019 Lexus UX, a new sub-compact crossover that will be slightly under the NX subcompact in price and size. It may be small, but it has an oversized angular style that seems to be its main weapon in the fight against the Mercedes-Benz GLA class and the BMW X1, a battle that will begin when the UX hits dealers in December.
Lexus UX Design 2019
The 2019 Lexus UX was worth the wait, at least in terms of style. His dramatic style begins with the design of the brand’s front grille, which combines with a hood that gives more illusion of length than what is really there. Its tail end will pick up the strongest reactions, however, with an LED light bar running the width of the hatchback and ending at either end with delicate fins not fully reminiscent of 1950s Detroit iron (thankfully) . body assembly with revised front and rear bumpers and 18-inch wheels instead of the standard 17-inch design.
Lexus will offer the UX 250h with a variety of safety equipment. The standard Adaptive Emergency Braking and Cruise Control systems, the UX 250h can now detect and brake pedestrians, regardless of sunlight and cyclists during the day. A set of options will add automatic lighthouses, active lane control and road reconnaissance. Although Lexus does not position the UX as a particularly sporty model, the automaker will offer both the UX 200 and the UX 250h with adaptive dampers underneath as part of the F-Sport package.
Lexus UX 2019 Engine
As expected for an urban vehicle, energy is not the main focus of the 2019 Lexus UX. The standard UX 200 comes with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder developing 168 hp. This unit is paired with a special CVT that uses an extra gear to start from a stop, making it faster than in a traditional CVT transmission, says the automaker.
A hybrid version of the UX called the 2019 Lexus UX 250h will also be available, pairing the same 2.0-liter engine with a nickel-metal hydride battery and engine system. An additional electric motor is located on the rear axle to allow all-wheel drive. When the UX detects a rear wheel slip loss, it sends 80% of the power to the rear at speeds of up to 43 mph to increase stability. The hybrid model also features a feature that analyzes driver habits and current traffic conditions to optimize battery usage. A total of 176 hp is on the pressure.
New Lexus UX Price
Considering that the NX starts at around $ 37,000 for a front-wheel drive NX300 and $ 39,000 for a four-wheel-drive NX300h hybrid, we expect the UX200 to cost about $ 5,000 less, with the hybrid ordering a slight premium and well-equipped versions crossing the $ 40K mark.
