The Lexus UX is an interesting alternative to established premium family SUVs, with distinctive looks and a very efficient hybrid system. However, it's only the promise of good fuel economy, cheap company car tax and Lexus's excellent reliability that appeal. The driving experience is so-so, and practicality is poor for a family SUV. As a result, it's impossible to recommend it over a Volvo XC40.

The standalone F-Sport trim gives you the same amount of kit as F-Sport Design, but adds adaptive suspension. You also get the larger infotainment screen offered with F-Sport Design Tech.

Lexus has added a more powerful 300h hybrid system to the UX line-up, with an uprated battery and electric motor. It produces 196bhp, which means it can go from 0-62mph in 8.1sec. That’s marginally quicker than the 250h, but the extra power is more noticeable as you pull away from a standstill. It also offers stronger acceleration at high speeds.
