Lexus UX

(2019 - present)

The Lexus UX is a premium compact SUV/crossover and the first model in this sector for Lexus. The UX shares its underpinnings with several Toyota models and is only available in the UK as a petrol-electric hybrid.

The UX has received mostly average to good scores from the UK motoring media. Reviewers have praised it urban fuel economy and driving dynamics, which are greatly helped by its hybrid drivetrain, but have criticised its poor infotainment system and cramped interior dimensions.
