The styling is refreshingly bold and by far the best visual element is the three-dimensional rear light clusters joined by a full-width LED light bar that looks undeniably slick at night.
The interior design of the UX follows on from the exterior. There are plenty of varied angles and design features across the multi-layered dashboard and fit and finish are as impressive as any of the company’s larger and much pricier cars.
The front seats are wonderfully supportive and offer all the adjustment required for drivers to find their ideal driving position and be comfortable at the same time.
The Lexus UX launches with three trim grades: UX, F Sport and Takumi. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloys, Lexus Safety System Plus (LSS+), e-Call, a seven-inch multimedia system incorporating satnav and DAB radio, bi-LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, dual-zone air conditioning, heated front seats and roof rails.
There is just the one powertrain offered at launch – a non-plug-in petrol-electric hybrid made up of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that works with an electric motor to give a combined output of 176bhp via a CVT transmission.
Buyers have the choice of two- or all-wheel drive which Lexus have dubbed the E-FOUR. It uses an additional electric motor to drive the rear axle.
Underway, the Lexus UX is rather impressive and affords enough compliance to keep all life in the cabin comfortable and calm and, at the same time there’s enough control to reduce body roll to a minimum. The car feels secure with plenty of grip and the steering is pleasingly responsive and nicely weighted.
