LEXUS UX. The UX was Lexus' first truly compact luxury crossover. The aim was to embody a free-spirited style that would appeal to modern urban explorers who seek fresh, dynamic takes on a luxury lifestyle. Hence the name UX stands for Urban Crossover.
The Lexus UX is a solid luxury subcompact SUV. It has some of the best fuel economy figures in the class, and its small turning radius makes it easy to fit into tight parking spots and navigate crowded streets.
Since Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota, maintenance and repairs are cheap, relatively speaking. RepairPal ranked Lexus in sixth place overall for its low ownership costs. Lexus owners spend about $551 per year on maintenance and repairs, though costs grow as vehicles age.
The UX is a likeable compact SUV and arguably the best car Lexus makes. However, few UK buyers will see the benefit in this four-wheel drive version, especially when it costs more to buy, fuel and tax than the existing front-wheel-drive UX - some of the main draws of owning the hybrid Lexus.
UX: The UX crossover SUV is positioned as Lexus's most affordable and smallest car. Powering the front wheels of the sub-compact cruiser is a 2.0-liter inline-four engine rated at 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
