ALL NEW UX
The new UX hybrid challenges everything that went before. Its bold design expresses unmistakable strength. Yet its elegantly sculpted surfaces suggest a character that is both stylish and dynamic. Now available to Pre-Order and in Showrooms from March 2019.
Enjoy the commanding seating position and excellent visibility of a modern crossover. A low centre of gravity and rigid platform allow the UX to deliver precise driving dynamics that you wouldn’t expect in a SUV described by WhatCAR? as ‘smooth, responsive and measured in its power delivery’. This is further enhanced by unique aerodynamic stabilisers, subtly incorporated into the design of wheel arches and rear lights, that offer stability at speed and in cross winds.
With the new Lexus Safety System +, the UX benefits from an outstandingly comprehensive preventative package, including detection of pedestrians and cyclists.
The Panoramic View Monitor combines images from four video cameras to give an amazing 360° birds-eye view of the car and its surroundings through an unprecedented 10.3” screen. There's no need to worry about troublesome cables with the availability of a Qi-compatible wireless charger, allowing you to charge a device such as a smartphone simply by placing it on the charger.
Our Takumi Craftsmen have created a luxurious and unique environment inside the UX using materials of the highest quality. The smooth leather seats use a Calculated Art perforation pattern and the art of traditional Japanese Sashiko stitching; as Wallpaper noted: ‘Genuinely original and Japanese in inspiration, all are signs that Lexus is finally embracing its brand’s cultural difference’.
Seeking a sportier edge? The new UX F SPORT features 18-inch F SPORT alloy wheels along with other exclusive styling touches including distinctive front grille and figure hugging leather seats and heated steering wheel . The F SPORT dynamic look has been inspired by our most exhilarating LC performance model.
A WORLD OF NO COMPROMISE
The all-new Lexus UX SUV juxtaposes exhilaratingly smooth All-Wheel Drive performance with next generation efficiency.
Journeys are powered by a fourth generation Self-Charging Hybrid with automatic transmission that features a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, powerful electric motor and newly developed hybrid transmission.
The vehicle charges itself as you drive. No plugging in, no compromise. High thermal efficiency and output is also delivered by the engine with C02 levels from 97g/km* and BIK from 21%*. The focus on outstanding fuel economy offers up to 68.9 mpg*.
With performance comes peace of mind. When you buy a new Lexus, you are covered by a highly comprehensive 3 year/60,000 mile warranty as standard. This also includes 5-year or 60,000 mile cover for both the hybrid components and the hybrid battery.
EMBRACE JAPANESE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DESIGN
The UX designers were inspired by Japanese Engawa architecture which is based on seamlessly connecting the interior with the exterior allowing a more harmonious coexistence with the environment. This is most noticeable in the driver’s seat where the instrument panel appears to continue through the windscreen into the bonnet.
This clever effect enables the driver to better sense the size of the vehicle which, combined with excellent front visibility, makes it easy to maneuver in the city.
The theme continues with ‘Takumi’-crafted ‘sashiko’ leather upholstery, a traditional Japanese stitching technique recognized for its strength and used in the manufacture of Judo and Kendo uniforms.
In Lexus, we have taken a contemporary twist on this classic technique, combining it with artistic patterns with geometric drafts.
LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+
The new UX is equipped as standard with the advanced second generation Lexus Safety System+. This includes the following features.
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Road Sign Assist - Automatic High Beam (AHB)/Adaptive High Beam System (AHS) - Pre Crash Safety (PCS) Day & Night-Road Sign Assist - Lane Keep Assist - Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), which recognizes road signs
