2020 Lexus UX Redesign, Specs, and Release Date. The Lexus’s newest compact crossover SUV has just been fully revealed. The Lexus UX was first unveiled as a concept model at the Paris Salon and it has just made its debut at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show.
This model shares the same underpinnings with the Toyota C-HR but it will feature a more aggressive appearance and sharper design. According to the Lexus manufacturer, thanks to this architecture, the UX will have the lower center of the gravity and with its rigid body, it will provide outstanding handling and maneuverability.
In terms of the dimensions, the UX model is almost a foot and a half shorter than the RX model. Compared to its key competitors, the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, the UX will be longer for a few inches. It will be offered in two variants which will include the UX 200 and UX 250h.
2020 Lexus UX Engines and performances
We have just mentioned above that the newest 2020 Lexus UX will feature two engine options. The UX 200 version will use a 2.0-liter inline-4 petrol engine which will work with a continuously variable transmission.
The next is the UX 250h which will be powered by a hybrid engine. This powertrain will be a combination of the same petrol engine, dual electric motors, and a nickel-metal-hydride battery.
2020 Lexus UX Exterior and Interior
The exterior design of the 2020 Lexus UX will mostly be based on the UX Concept model, except it will feature a slightly smaller but brand’s recognizable spindle grille. It will ride on standard 17-inch wheels while the optional F Sports package will add the larger 18-inch wheels.
They share the same platform, the upcoming 2020 Lexus UX will provide a slightly roomier cabin than the Toyota C-HR. The safety will be on the high level and all models come with automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
