2020 Lexus UX Hybrid Overview

Lexus’ SUV and crossover catalogs have grown sharply in recent years, and they now include several models to choose from. The largest is the legendary LX with gobs of off-road capability, and the smallest is the Lexus UX. The littlest crossover debuted for the 2019 model year as a subcompact alternative to larger luxury SUVs. It’s intended to carry many upscale features that its larger and more expensive counterparts do but in a small, stylish package.

The Lexus UX enters the 2020 model year mostly unchanged. Rear cross-traffic alerts are now part of its blind-spot monitoring system and the Lexus connected services suite offers a different trial period than in previous years.

The 2020 Lexus UX250h is offered in a few different configurations: UX250h, UX250h F Sport, and UX 250h Luxury. Regardless of trim, all models get a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that makes 181 combined system horsepower. It’s paired with a two-motor-generator hybrid transmission with planetary power-split device, which is Lexus-speak for a continuously variable transmission. The UX hybrid gets standard all-wheel drive (AWD), which is a benefit over its gas counterpart, which comes with front-wheel drive (FWD) as standard. Unfortunately, though, even the more aggressive-looking F Sport model retains the same powertrain, so there are cosmetic but not mechanical enhancements.

Standard interior features include power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa capability, four USB inputs, and a WiFi hotspot. Lexus offers several upgrade options, which include a 10.3-inch touchscreen, wireless device charging, navigation, and premium audio.

On the safety front, the 2020 UX earned a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and five stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Those great scores are on top of a decent list of standard safety equipment that includes forward-collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, lane departure alerts, and lane-keeping assist. The vehicle can be upgraded with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts.

The 2020 Lexus UX250h is on sale now. It carries a starting price of $35,525. The UX25h F Sport starts at $37,625 and the UX250h Luxury starts at $40,725. All prices include a $1,025 destination charge.
