Lexus Details Europe’s UX Subcompact SUV In Massive Gallery

The small premium SUV segment is brimming with new entries, but the new Lexus UX enters the European market as the only self-charging hybrid crossover in its class.

Lexus released a new gallery of the European-spec UX that is currently being launched across the old continent.

Customers will be offered a choice between two powertrain options; the entry-level model, which is available in select countries, is the UX 200. It is powered by a new 2.0-liter petrol four producing 171 PS (168 HP) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque and is paired to a CVT transmission driving the front wheels.

The UX 250h that’s pictured here features the brand’s newest hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with up to two electric motors. This depends on whether you opt for the FWD or the E-Four AWD version, but in both cases the combined output rating is set at 181hp.

The UX 250h can accelerate from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in 8.5 seconds (E-Four: 8.7 seconds) and hit a top speed of 110mph (177km/h). Fuel economy is impressive, with Lexus announcing up to 53.3 mpg UK combined (5.3lt/100km) for the FWD and up to 48.7 mpg UK (5.8lt/100km) for the E-Four version, per the latest WLTP cycle. CO2 emissions can drop as low as 94g/km for the FWD and 103g/km for the E-Four.

All UX models come with the Lexus Safety System+, which includes driver assistance systems like Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Trace Assist, Road Sign Assist and more, as standard.

In the cabin, there’s a seven-inch infotainment system with navigation, although customers can opt for the bigger 10.3-inch version that adds connected features, as well as a high-end 13-speaker Mark Levinson sound system.

      Europeans too busy dealing with economic migrants from their neighbors on the southern continent vandalizing and raping to be buying any luxo car.
