2019 Lexus UX 200 Review

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 the 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 2019 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 are 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 powertrain. This engine is found in the UX 250 Hybrid. 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.

2019 Lexus UX 200 Review

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 digging that 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 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.
