Introduction

What Car? says...

Although there’s no magic potion that’ll guarantee success in the new car market, the Lexus UX has jumped on a pair of bandwagons that are the next best thing to a magical elixir. For a start it’s one of those ever so popular SUVs, and for seconds it’s powered by a petrol-electric hybrid system

Unlike plug-in hybrids, you won’t have to plug the family-sized UX to give it a few more volts. Instead, it charges its relatively small battery every time you slow down and via the engine when it isn’t working very hard. In other words, the UX is just like its bigger Lexus siblings, the NX and RX SUVs and potentially just the ticket for those actively avoiding diesel.

All of this means that as well as battling against traditional petrol and diesel rivals, such as the BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque and Volvo XC40, the UX must confront the growing army of hybrid SUVs, which includes the X1 xDrive 25e, Kia Niro and Mini Countryman S E.

Keep with us to find out what the UX is like to drive, how plush and spacious it is plus how much it’ll cost you. We’ll be comparing to the aforementioned rivals as we go, and don’t forget that our New Car Buying pages could give you a handy discount on the UX and most of its rivals, too.
