Lexus UX Debuts for First Time in North America

Lexus UX Debuts for First Time in North America! Earlier this month, we talked more about the Lexus UX when it debuted at the Geneva Auto Show. We shared, “The 2019 Lexus UX will be available as the UX 200, which features a new 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine coupled with a new Direct-Shift continuously variable transmission (CVT), and the UX 250h, which features the same 2.0-liter gas engine with a new fourth generation hybrid drive system. The UX  will offer the Lexus Safety System+, including a Pre-Collision System (PCS) that can recognize pedestrians at night and cyclists during the day. The package available for the UX also includes Lexus Co DRIVE (featuring Lane Tracing Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control), Automatic High Beam/Adaptive High-beam System, and Road Sign Assist.”

“The first-ever Lexus UX is designed for the modern urban explorer seeking a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on luxury driving,” said Chika Kako, executive vice president of Lexus International and chief engineer of the UX. “We designed the UX to appeal to buyers in their 30s who seek not only what is new and exciting, but what is also relevant to their lifestyles.”

Lexus says that the UX 200 and UX 250h will start production this fall and go on sale in the U.S. in December. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
