How to Declutter Your Car
How to Declutter Your Car One day many years ago, I rolled up into carpool with a car that looked like a trash heap. When the teacher opened the door to let my kids...
Thanks to Lexus, A Girl's Guide To Cars, BMW and Visit Greater Palm Springs for sponsoring A Girl's Guide to Cars Conference #Drive2Learn #AGirlsGuidetoCars #Drive2LearnLexusUX #carshopping. This 2019 Lexus UX 200 First Look post is sponsored. All opinions are my own.
Subcompact luxury SUVs are a hot commodity among car shoppers and millenials. I love them! They have become a sensation in the automobile industry. Lexus has a version known as the UX 200. The UX stands for Urban Crossover. Its competition would be the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Volvo XC40 and Cadillac XT4 among others. This new Lexus is built on the same platform that underpins the Toyota CHR and also shares the CHR’s 103.9 inch wheelbase. However, the new crossover comes with its own attributes that distinguish it from others in its class. It is lower, wider and nearly 6 inches longer than the Toyota. The new traits play a big role in offering more interior space. We hope that you enjoy this 2019 Lexus UX 200 First Look.
The new Lexus UX features a luxurious ride and a quiet cabin on highways which is so important to me. After extensive highway driving of this car, I was thrilled at the lack of noise in the cabin. The UX handles corners very well, which instills a great deal of confidence in the driver. The 2.0 safety system is standard across the board. There is a host of driver-assist technologies that include full speed dynamic cruise control, pre-collision warning with automatic braking, forward pedestrian protection, intelligent high beams, road sign detection and lane departure warning featuring steering assist. Honestly after driving the UX, I cannot imagine not having any of these great features.
There is more than ample headroom for the driver in the front seats of the new Lexus. The rear seating area is on the smaller side but still comfortable. It also has headroom clearance for average sized adults. There is a center seat in the rear for a third passenger. The fold down center armrest also features cup holders for rear passengers which is a nice convenience. The rear seating area has two temperature vents and two USB ports. There's 21.7 cubic feet of storage space in the cargo area of the Lexus UX. The rear seats flip forward for extra room. The analog clock up front goes along with rollers and buttons to control the volume on the audio system. The center console is accessible from the driver and passenger side of the apparatus.
Power-train options on the new crossover are designed to make sure the vehicle provides a satisfying driving experience. They come in two choices, which are a 2 Liter 4 cylinder engine teamed with a continuously variable transmission. The 2019 UX gets a reported 29 miles per gallon in the city and 37 on the highway. The second engine option is an all-wheel drive hybrid power-train. This engine is found in the UX 250 Hybrid. The the four-cylinder engine is teamed with a pair of electric motor generators. A third motor is dedicated to powering the rear wheels, which gives the car all wheel drive traction. The nickel metal battery is hidden beneath the rear seats. The car has electric torque and 181 total horsepower.
The Lexus UX 200 comes in a variety of trims that will affect the overall package of the vehicle. The base version brings 18 inch wheels, LED headlights and Apple Carplay. There are three drive modes available to customize the overall experience for riders. The 7 inch infotainment display compliments the dash and is user-friendly. The dash screen is controlled by the Remote Touch Interface. This feature is sensitive to touching, swiping and also recognizes handwriting. Other premium features are offered such as the foot activated rear hatch door to go along with heated and ventilated front seats.
The UX Sports Package comes with a number of different features. These are provided to give the car a sporty look and feel. There are simple adjustments to the automobile suspension, which has an impact on its responsiveness and driving abilities. It comes with new wheels and several different tweaks on its interior. There are also anti-roll bars and shock absorbers. The steering and throttle have been adjusted for a more aggressive driving experience.
The 2019 Lexus UX subcompact crossover is the most affordable Lexus model available. The standard, non-hybrid Lexus UX 200 starts at $33,025, and the hybrid Lexus UX 250h starts at $35,025.
Different purchase and lease options are available for the UX including a subscription package. This gives drivers the ability to subscribe to the Lexus through the complete lease plan. It is a two-year deal that covers all of the lease, insurance and maintenance costs in one contract.
I found the car to drive easily and it was extremely sporty. The red captured me from the moment I first saw it although I am really digging this royal blue color as well. The drive on the highway versus the drive in the city was about the same. I could see myself driving this car. I am low key shopping for my next car in that I need to figure out what I really need in a car and the Lexus UX seems pretty much perfect for running errands in the city which is primarily what I do. We hope that you enjoyed this 2019 Lexus UX 200 First Look.

I love the Interior of Lexus, not the exterior because they have copied it from Honda Vezel Cars.
That is one gorgeous car! I’ve loved all the Lexus cars I’ve great driven. That’s great this one has more headroom!
That is a smoking hot car! I love the design and the color. A spacious and luxurious SUV!
I’m liking the screen features a lot so far. I think the vehicle itself sounds great too! I’d be excited to drive it every day!
Love that exterior, that is one good looking car. The bells and whistles sound great too.
What a gorgeous vehicle. I am loving the blue model. I like that the rear has 2 USB ports. That comes in handy when someone in the back needs to charge their electronics.
My husband loves cars and he will be happy to know about this new Lexus’ model. I love that it has also a hybrid option.
Wow! That looks so cool! Love the sporty look and feel!
A friend of mine is a huge Lexus fan. I will be pretty much waiting for her to trade in for this newer model any time now.
The car is stunningggggg!!!! Thank you so much for the amazing review, love it!
What a handsome looking car! It has that much-needed space even if it looks compact on the outside. Nice comfy seats too! I am sure my son would be saving up for this. He is on the lookout for a new vehicle.
SUVs certainly are hot these days, I too am a big fan. I have been telling the other half how much I like the Lexus at the minute but it seems to be falling on deaf ears lol
Wow, nice car. Interesting interior and exterior. Been always a fan. I wish i could buy this someday.
Great review; I absolutely loved our Lexus! Unfortunately, we needed a larger car to haul three kids but I can’t wait to go back to one when we down size!
This looks like such a beautiful vehicle inside and out. I am loving all of the features that it has!
The light colored leather interior is AMAZING!!! I wish my car would have that or I wish thid car was my car to my honest. Loved your review.
Always appreciate a quiet luxurious interior. Really beautiful car!
Great and I love your review about it. I am glad that you found a perfect car for your needs and this 2019 LEXUS UX 200 is really beautiful!
Oh my gosh this car is absolutely gorgeous! I am loving the look of both the interior and the exterior. It looks so luxurious,
this looks like a really nice car! I’m happy with mine but i’ll keep this in mind a few years down the road when the new wears off
I love the style in red looks so glam. Will be I. Search next year. Hopefully I can catch a sale on the price range of 33,000
Wow that looks really premium. You can’t expect less from a lexus.
This is a wonderful car! I wasn’t familiar with Lexus brand, so I’m glad to read your review!
This car is soo luxurious! The interior looks so comfortable and sleek… and honestly that price is very fair. The hubby and I will look into it.
That looks like a real Brute of a car………I struggle to find one that I can get three car seats in across the back though
That’s one mean looking car! We’re always drawn to the grill or ‘face’ of a car and love all the added features!
holy Mama, now that’s a car I can love!!! Maybe some day… as for now I’ll enjoy the car I just bought last month!
