Taking the space of all Lexus dealership across Japan, the all-new Lexus UX is ready for sale since November 27, 2018.

Marking a unique entry in the luxury compact crossover segment, the 2019 Lexus UX, infused with dynamic attitude, is engineered to deliver quick and engaging driving with a Lexus-smooth demeanour. To cater urbanities who are looking for a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on luxury driving, The UX’s offers the brand’s innovative design, luxury features, and advanced safety in a package that combines charismatic new styling elements and ultra-efficient new powertrains.

The brilliant design of the 2019 Lexus UX has also been integrated with Global Architecture-Compact (GA-C) platform, making the premier debut for its kind to use such technology. A lightweight yet super-rigid structure, low centre of gravity and refined suspension tuning endow the UX with exemplary handling agility and ride comfort, along with a distinctive driving personality.

 

13 total exterior paint colours, three of which have been newly developed exclusively for the UX, expanded customization options. Newly served up are: “Blazing Carnelian Contrasting Layering,” producing a deep hue of orange clay that changes tint depending how the light hits it; “Terrain Khaki Mica Metallic,” inspired by the color of stones and deep shadows; and “Celestial Blue Glass Flake,” characterized by a solid color peppered with sparkling flakes.

Owning a bold and sophisticated personality, The UX is characterized by a solid exterior that exudes power and strength, while the wide fenders and compact body convey the vehicle’s agility. The UX was designed to encourage the driver to focus on driving, with all control gauges strategically placed for optimal efficiency. Such incorporation of advanced technology in the cockpit invites the driver to enjoy the exhilaration of driving as well.

Significantly noticeable to the vehicle’s occupants, the interior’s styling and shape generate an overall sense of spaciousness. The “functional and aesthetically pleasing” theme has also been included in the front seats through sashiko quilting – an age-old Japanese embroidery art – and excellent seat ventilation achieved through the strategic perforation, keeping the occupants comfortable on long journeys. The border between the inside and outside of the UX artfully blends together, with the top portion of the dashboard fusing flawlessly with the hood and fenders. The shoulders, centre console, and armrest are shaped to convey a reassuringly solid feel, creating an interior with a high sense of security.

Two new interior colors were developed for the UX. “Cobalt” illustrates a blue that injects the vehicle with a sense of sportiness and fashion, and “White Ash” gives the spacious interior a modern flavor.

The UX possesses the basic proportions that define a crossover vehicle, while the GA-C platform’s rigidity and low centre of gravity make the UX a nimble, sporty car, emphasizing high ability, stability, and ride quality no matter the driving conditions. Underscored by a new 2.0-litre direct-injection inline-4 engine and a 2.0-litre hybrid system, the UX embraces the latest powertrain technology. Installation of the latest version of Lexus Safety System+, which includes Lane Tracing Assist, ensures all the passengers travel with the assurance of the most advanced safety technology.
