2021 Lexus UX Overview
The smallest member of the Lexus luxury SUV lineup, the 2021 Lexus UX 200 is particularly suited for navigating the tight spaces that characterize city driving. For 2021, some previously optional features are now standard. Otherwise, this subcompact luxury SUV is largely carried over from its 2019-model-year introduction.
The UX 200 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It sends 169 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). There is no all-wheel-drive (AWD) option. The CVT has 10 simulated “gears,” which can be manually operated via a tap-shift mode. The UX driving experience can be further personalized with the Drive Mode Select, with Sport, Normal, and Eco drive modes. EPA estimates for the 2021 Lexus UX 200 are 29 mpg city, 37 mpg highway, 32 mpg combined.
The UX comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-season run-flat tires. It also comes standard with dual-zone climate control, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, and synthetic leather upholstery. Four USB ports, a 7-inch digital instrument panel, and a 7-inch infotainment screen round out the generous list of standard features. The infotainment screen is operated via a controller in the center console and also operates Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa.
Moving up to the UX 200 F Sport adds unique 18-inch wheels and aggressive F Sport design touches, including a different grille, badging, and front- and rear fascias. It also features a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters, a sport-tuned suspension, active sound control, and sport bucket seats.
The range-topping Luxury trim adds power-folding side mirrors that tilt down in reverse, a power moonroof, heated- and ventilated front seats with memory settings, and a hands-free power liftgate.
All trims of the UX 200 feature the Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 bundle of driver aids. This suite of driver assistance features includes lane departure warning with steering assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic cruise control, automatic high beams, and road sign recognition. For 2021, blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning—both previously optional—join the list of standard safety tech.
Base MSRP for the 2021 Lexus UX 200 is $33,995. The UX 200 F Sport starts at $35,995, while the range-topping UX 200 Luxury starts at $38,695. These prices include a mandatory $1,025 destination fee.
