The UX is a new entry-level vehicle being offered by Lexus. As a crossover, the 2019 Lexus UX appeals to a variety of drivers, many of whom prefer versatility in their cars.
The car comes with the choice of 10 different paint colors. These range from Eminent White Pearl to bold choices such as Redline, Nori Green Pearl, and Cadmium Orange. Inside, there are also 10 color schemes to choose from. Some of them have high contrast, while others are all dark. The wheels on the 2019 Lexus US are 18" five-spoke alloy wheels, and they're fitted with run-flat tires.
Roof rails are included on all of the UX models. These can be used in conjunction with cargo systems for enhanced storage options. On some of the models, the rear door comes with a kick sensor for hands-free operation.
Engine and Performance
Six style choices are available on the 2019 Lexus UX. The base model, the UX 200, has an in-line four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters. That same engine is found on the UX 200 F Sport and the UX 200 Luxury, both of which are front-wheel drive vehicles. It has 169 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque, and it gets an estimated 29/37 (city/highway) miles per gallon. In road tests, it has been able to get from zero to 60 miles per hour in 8.9 seconds, and its top speed on the track has been 118 mph.
To get all-wheel drive incorporated into the 2019 Lexus UX, one must choose a UX 250h version, with the "h" standing for hybrid. The UX 250h, UX 250h Luxury, and UX 250h F Sport all come with the all-wheel drive system, allowing them to get better traction in tough conditions.
They also run on an in-line, 2.0-liter engine, but the difference is that their traditional gasoline-powered engines are paired with electric-drive motors. The total horsepower of these models is 181, and they get an estimated 41/38 (city/highway) miles per gallon. They can go from zero to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds, and they've been clocked at 110 mph on the test track. These hybrids are some of the most efficient in their class without sacrificing performance.
Sitting inside the driver's seat of a 2019 Lexus UX, one might feel that he or she is inside a cockpit of a plane. All of the controls are positioned toward the driver to create a more premium driving experience. The lines are smooth, and gentle curves help the inside features flow with the outside ones. From the driver's seat, a wide field of vision is offered.
A dual-zone climate control system keeps everyone comfortable. Plus, the system can sense smog, and if it does, it will automatically go into recirculation mode.
With the layout of this crossover, cargo space is maximized by having a 60/40 split folding rear seat. Larger pieces can be accommodated by folding the seat(s) down, and compartments located throughout the car provide smart options for smaller items.
Built for the modern driver, the Lexus UX is compatible with Apple CarPlay. This means that the car's display can be controlled in a similar fashion to an Apple smartphone. Many apps can be used through the car, and calls and messages can be taken through the vehicle's system.
Amazon Alexa is another convenience included in all models of the UX, as is Wi-Fi (with a subscription). To keep batteries powered up, a wireless charger is available, and four USB ports are standard.
For audio, there are many options. SiriusXM Satellite Radio, HD Radio, and downloaded songs can all be played through the system. An eight-speaker sound system is available if anyone wants a premium surround-sound experience.
To control playback or look up information, a variety of methods can be used. The system accepts voice commands, and the Remote Touchpad is programmed to receive commands like a smartphone screen does. It responds to pinches, swipes, and flicks in addition to recognizing handwriting.
There are many ways in which Lexus incorporated safety features into the UX. The backup camera provides parking assistance via dynamic gridlines, and a camera in the front can interpret street signs. Warnings will be issued if it seems like a driver is about to skip a stop sign or go past a "Do Not Enter" sign.
The Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 also includes technology that can detect other cars and pedestrians, keep drivers in their lanes, and automatically switch between high and low beams. The cruise control is a dynamic system that can adjust to traffic.
As mentioned before, this Lexus can either come in the standard or the hybrid version. Luxury models are available for both. The Luxury comes with the Power Rear Door with Kick Sensor, a power moonroof, and heated and ventilated front seats. The integrated navigation system is displayed on a larger, 10.3" screen, and premium materials are available for the seats.
The F-Sport vehicles are built for performance. They come with special F Sport 19" wheels, LED foglamps, and an enhanced suspension. Those who enjoy taking control of the car can use the paddle shifters to switch gears, and the unique F Sport front seats are evocative of those used in race cars. In addition, the steering wheel and shift knob on these cars are leather-trimmed.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lexus UX invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lexus UX MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
