The all-new Lexus UX 250h compact SUV crossover will launch in March 2019 in a line-up that adopts Lexus’s new, focused, three-grade structure.
The choice will consist of UX, F Sport and Takumi models, with a complementary range of option packs designed to give customers the freedom to enhance their vehicle’s technology, audio, performance, safety and luxury specifications.
Both front- and all-wheel drive versions of the UX 250h will be available. The latter is equipped with Lexus’s compact, lightweight and fuel-efficient E-Four system, which provides electric motor drive to the rear axle, automatically providing extra grip in slippery conditions. All-wheel drive will be an option on the Takumi and on UX and F Sport models in combination with the Premium Plus or Takumi Pack.
The introduction of the UX 250h marks Lexus’s entry into the growing premium compact SUV crossover segment with a car that is rich in striking design, advanced technology features and luxurious quality. As the first model to be built on the Lexus Global Architecture – C platform, it also delivers strong dynamic performance and driver rewards, with a low centre of gravity, highly rigid body and suspension tuned for the ideal balance of responsiveness, stability and ride comfort.
In the UK the new UX 250h will be offered exclusively with a self-charging 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain. This fourth-generation of Lexus’s market-leading hybrid technology features a new, high-efficiency four-cylinder petrol engine that has been specifically engineered for the UX. It secures excellent fuel economy, low emissions and a characteristically smooth, quiet and refined drive, coupled with the dynamic performance rewards of the new GA-C platform.
