New for 2019

The least expensive way to get into a new Lexus will be the 2019 UX once the subcompact luxury crossover goes on sale in December 2018.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Lexus UX 200 and UX 250h fit into the automaker's lineup underneath other crossovers and SUVs that include the two-row NX, the two- and three-row RX, the three-row GX, and the three-rlw LX.

Available in UX 200 and UX 250h (hybrid) forms, the new Lexus will offer a full suite of active safety tech as standard equipment. The UX will also offer Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration, as well as paddle shifters on the F Sport model and neat taillights that, together, have 120 LEDs that stretch from one side of the car to the other.

Performance and Fuel Economy

As Lexus' entry-level model, the small UX 200, is powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine good for 168 hp. If you'd prefer to crawl through traffic silently, consider the UX 250h hybrid, which pairs an Atkinson cycle version of that engine with a hybrid system for 176 total system horsepower. The 2019 UX 200 is a front-drive crossover, whereas the 2019 UX 250h uses its hybrid system (an electric motor on the rear axle) for what Lexus calls eAWD. The UX 200 uses a CVT with a mechanical first gear to provide better feel off the line.

Fuel economy is projected to hit 33 mpg in combined city/highway conditions for the UX 200 and a combined 38 mpg for the UX 250h hybrid. For comparison, the larger and more powerful 2018 NX gets 25 combined mpg as a front-drive gas model and 31 combined mpg as an all-wheel-drive hybrid model. Up to 43 mph, the UX 250h's hybrid system can send around 80 percent of its power to the rear wheels if it detects the rear wheels losing traction.

The UX 250h hybrid is the first Lexus model to offer technology that tracks driving habits and road conditions to help optimize when the crossover charges the battery. If the UX 250h senses it's about to go down a hill, Lexus says the car will use extra electric-motor power so that it can fully recharge itself on the way down the hill.

Safety

Following in the tire tracks of other Toyota and Lexus models, the 2019 UX will come standard with a package of active safety tech that includes automatic emergency braking, Lane Tracing Assist, adaptive cruise control, and a system that can detect pedestrians and cyclists during the day.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

Although Lexus hasn't revealed official cargo and interior space measurements, the UX will feel small inside to those who are used to the larger UX crossover and a little bigger inside than the discontinued CT hybrid hatch. So no surprises here, though chief engineer Chika Kako told us that they paid close attention to the interior layout and placement of controls, so that the interior felt open.

Technology

The 2019 Lexus UX will offer Apple CarPlay, an extremely useful bit of smartphone technology that facilitates a number of in-car tasks, from voice-commanding text message responses to getting directions to locations you've already looked up previously on your phone. There's no Android Auto, but the UX does have Amazon Alexa integration. As with some other Lexus models, the UX will feature the latest version of the brand's touchpad, an infotainment control system we've not found easy to use in the past, though we look forward to trying it on the UX.

What We Think

We wonder if the 2019 Lexus UX's styling will warm on us over time, but it definitely makes a strong impression from every angle. With pricing expected to start around $34,000 for those who don't go for the brand's upcoming subscription service, the UX should get more young buyers into showrooms.
