Introducing the first-ever Lexus UX luxury crossover with city-smart technology and design. Built on an all-new chassis with an exceptionally low centre of gravity, UX is designed to enrich and enable active and energetic lifestyles. It boasts a dynamic and distinctive design inside and out, SUV-versatility fused with the agility of a hatchback, and a roster of leading-edge technology.
Available with an efficient new 2.0-litre gas engine, or as a Self-Charging Hybrid with electronic All Wheel Drive, and dressed-to-thrill with available F SPORT packages. Arriving late 2018.
UX shatters convention. The bold spindle grille and dramatically flared fenders emphasize UX’s strong crossover qualities. Its nimble performance and excellent manoeuverability shine through in details like aero stabilizing blade lights and aluminum wheels with a world-first aerodynamic design. Rear combination lamps connected by a continuous single line of 120 LED lights round out UX’s innovative character and cutting-edge appeal.
UX’s interior is everything you would expect from Lexus, from its harmonious design to contemporary finishes - including a new available trim inspired by the grain of handmade Japanese paper known as “Washi”. A driver-centric cockpit offers a commanding view of the road, with controls harmoniously at hand, and technologies designed to elevate the experience, including Apple CarPlayTM, wireless phone charging, head up display, backup camera and more. Plus a roomy interior that enables everyone to relax in comfort and style.
Add another level of boldness to your drive, with an F SPORT package. From the unique mesh grille and exclusive 18” alloys, to the highly bolstered sport seats and aluminum pedals, a sense of driving excitement is palpable. Paddle shifters, sport-tuned suspension, rear performance dampers and Active Sound Control deliver on the promise of exhilarating performance.
UX is the first Lexus to be built on the new Global Architectural Platform (GA-C), the foundation for its dynamic performance. Boasting both high structural rigidity and a low centre of gravity, UX responds quickly and surely to your every input - while simultaneously offering exceptional stability. To further enable your urban adventures, MacPherson strut front and double wishbone type suspension are specially tuned for a combination of cornering agility and exemplary ride comfort.
Go where your adventures take you. Powered by Lexus’ latest-generation self-charging hybrid powertrain, UX 250h generates a spirited 178 net horsepower. Featuring a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder gas engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT), UX 250h matches engaging performance with the best fuel-efficiency in its class*. Available in both FWD and eAWD.
* LMC Automotive Small Premium SUV segment; fuel efficiency determined using approved Government of Canada Test Methods and competitors’ self-published ratings. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving habits and other factors.
A new 2.0-litre inline 4-cylinder delivers both high performance -- up to 168 HP - and high fuel efficiency. The front wheel drive UX also introduces a new Direct-Shift continuously variable transmission (CVT), which combines the creamy-smooth performance of a conventional continuously variable transmission with the more direct feel of a traditional gear-driven automatic.
UX 250h enhances your confidence and elevates your control with its innovative eAWD system. When accelerating, cornering or driving on slippery surfaces, an additional motor on the rear axle automatically adjusts the power-split the between front and rear axles. The result is exceptional handling stability and greater traction across a range of driving situations - all without compromising fuel economy or cargo space.
Next level infotainment, convenience and peace-of-mind in one simple to use system. Lexus Enform 2.0 gives you easy access to your favourite music and apps through UX’s standard 7” - or available 10.3” - touchscreen display. You can also plot the best route using your smartphone and Scout GPS or available embedded navigation that also includes Destination Assist. And, you can rest easy, knowing that your safety is a top priority - with a live Enform Response Agent ready to send assistance in the event of an emergency.
The all-new UX works with Apple CarPlayTM - a smart and easy way to use your iPhone while driving. You can make phone calls, send text messages, listen to your favourite playlist, navigate with maps, and more - all while keeping your focus on the road.
Life in the fast lane demands that you expect the unexpected. That’s why UX is available with the latest version of Lexus Safety System+, an advanced suite of driver aids to help keep you and those around you safer.
Enhancements include a Pre-Collision System better able to recognize pedestrians at night, and cyclists during the day. And Lane Trace Assist, that, in conjunction with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, helps keep UX better centred in its lane - an invaluable aid when engaging in spirited driving, or dealing with heavy traffic.
Navigate your environment with greater confidence. The Intuitive Parking Assist with Auto Braking helps detect stationary objects around the vehicle, then warns you when you get to close. It also warns you of vehicles approaching from the rear when you’re backing up or backing out - then automatically reduces drive force and initiates braking to help avoid or mitigate an impact.
