Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There's plenty of head and leg room up front in the Lexus UX300e, but rear passenger space is poor. Not only do the narrow rear door openings make it tricky to get in and out, but anyone approaching six foot tall will find their knees pressed up against the seat backs and the footwells are very tight. 

That's with just two adults in the rear. Try fitting three adults in the back of a UX and it'll be a real struggle for the middle passenger especially, with a compromised middle rear seat that sits higher than the outer two, reducing the head room it can offer. The Ford Mustang Mach-ETesla Model 3Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric and Volkswagen ID.4 all serve their rear-seat passengers immeasurably better.
