LEXUS ANNOUNCES NEW UX SUV CROSSOVER PRICES AND MODEL RANGE
Lexus is pleased to announce pricing and the model range for its new UX 250h compact SUV crossover in the UK.
The all-new model will be launched in March next year in a line-up that adopts Lexus’s new, focused, three-grade structure. The choice will comprise 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.
On-the-road prices will start at £29,900 for the UX, with the F Sport at £33,900 and the top-of-the-range Takumi at £39,100.
Both front and all-wheel drive versions of the UX 250h will be available, the latter 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. The fourth generation of Lexus’s premium market-leading hybrid technology features a new, high-efficiency four-cylinder petrol engine that has been specifically engineered for the UX to secure 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.
