The Lexus UX is a subcompact premium crossover with seating for up to five people. It showcases the sharp styling and upscale features that buyers expect from Lexus, and it can be had with a frugal hybrid powertrain or in sporty F Sport guise. The UX’s interior may be limited on both passenger and cargo space, but the crossover offers a surprisingly premium experience with high-end materials, a gorgeous design, and comfortable seating accommodations.
Lexus offers both gas and hybrid powertrains in the 2021 UX. Front-wheel drive is standard for gas models, while the hybrid UX250h comes standard with all-wheel drive. Inside, the UX comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen as standard equipment and higher trims can be upgraded with a 10.3-inch screen. All models get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Lexus UX is now in its third year of production after an initial introduction for the 2019 model year. Lexus made numerous updates to the vehice for 2021, including new cargo options for the UX250h and new standard safety gear for both models.
