The Lexus UX 250h is a wonderful little subcompact crossover. Smaller even than the RAV4 based Lexus NX. Of the many versions, the Hybrid Luxury package is perfect for around town, especially if weather variations include icy, snowy and wet roads. With its standard all-wheel-drive system and 2.0L 4-cylinder hybrid engine, you’ll achieve an easy 41 mpg. The F Sport package will stiffen up the suspension, add extra firm and supportive seats and sporty cosmetic upgrades like a sleek gauge cluster.
Lexus went light on changes for 2020, with a rear cross-traffic alert added to the blind-spot monitor. As is almost always the case, one of the best parts of upgrading from a Toyota, to its Lexus counterpart is the interior. The cabin is attractively arranged with upscale materials. The Luxury package dials it up a notch further with heated and ventilated front seats, a moonroof, navigation and rain sensing wipers. The back seat could never be called spacious, but there’s more legroom than you’d expect looking at the UX 250h from the outside.
The smallest member of the vast crossover family from Toyota has plenty to like about it. That popular Lexus style, a polished, upscale interior, a great mpg rating, loads of useful features and a good for every season all-wheel-drive system. The perfect companion for the young and old who want an elegant, effortless crossover for almost any situation.
