LEXUS LAUNCHES NEW SPORT EDITION OF BEST-SELLING UX CROSSOVER

  • Created for younger urban drivers, the stylish new UX Sport crossover is the latest addition to Lexus’ best-selling UX range
  • Offering bold design features at a competitive price, highlights include 18” black alloy wheels, darkened Bi-LED headlights and all-black Lexus signature grille
  • Crafted by ‘Takumi’ master craftspeople at the luxury brand’s award-winning Kyushu plant in Japan, inside the UX Sport interior features distinctive Black Tahara upholstery

Targeted at younger urban drivers, Lexus designers have created a dynamic new appearance for the UX Sport. The first addition to the UX line-up since the new model was introduced last year, the UX Sport follows in the tracks of the successful Sport versions of the RX luxury crossover and NX mid-size crossover in offering a sporty treatment at an attractive price.

ATHLETIC CROSSOVER LOOKS

Crafted to stand out in the city and allow more drivers to experience the Lexus brand, the UX Sport combines striking lines with sharply sculpted bodywork in a choice of eight stunning colours. Design highlights include an all-black Lexus signature grille flanked by darkened Bi-LED headlights. Black 18” or optional dark grey 17” alloy wheels underscore the distinctive crossover shape, while black door mirrors and roof rails complete the distinctive look. Based on an entry-grade UX model, the new UX Sport offers both comprehensive equipment levels and bespoke design elements, creating a sporty crossover at an attractive price.

BLACK TAHARA UPHOLSTERY

Offered for the first time with full Tahara upholstery throughout, the UX Sport interior strikes a stylish note, and is also available with grey or blue accents. A more accessible alternative to leather, the Takumi-crafted Black Tahara upholstery is more environmentally efficient to produce and features the look and suppleness of leather in a durable product that contains no animal-sourced materials.

HYBRID OR PETROL POWER

Powered by Lexus’ 4th generation Self-Charging Hybrid technology, the UX 250h Sport seamlessly orchestrates a 2.0-litre petrol engine and electric motor(s) to deliver smooth yet powerful performance. In selected countries drivers can opt for the dynamic UX 200 Sport, powered by an ultra-efficient 2.0-litre petrol engine.

INTUITIVE TECHNOLOGY

The UX Sport includes intuitive Lexus technologies such as a Touch Pad controller on the centre console and seamless smartphone access via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto®. It also features a Lexus Link app to plan journeys, schedule a service or track driving styles. Moreover, every UX Sport boasts the very latest Lexus Safety System +, with optional Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Pascal Ruch, Head of Lexus Europe, comments: “With UX sales in Europe already topping 35.000 since launch, we felt younger newcomers to the Lexus brand would appreciate a stylish UX Sport along the lines of the successful RX Sport and NX Sport”.

The new UX Sport will be introduced in December 2020.
