Expert Rating

Summary


The Lexus UX Hybrid 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.

An electric version of the Lexus UX called the UX 300e joined the range in 2020. We have built a separate page for that model as it drives somewhat differently to the conventional UX Hybrid models covered here.

The UX has received mostly average to good scores from the UK motoring media. Reviewers have praised its 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.

As of March 2022, the Lexus UX Hybrid holds an Expert Rating of 62%, based on 24 reviews.
