Lexus UX compact SUV prices from sub-£30k

Lexus UX (2019)The new Lexus UX compact SUV crossover arrives in the UK in March 2019 and the firm has announced prices will start from £29,900.

A rival to the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Jaguar E-Pace, the long-awaited junior Lexus SUV will offer an all-hybrid line-up, based around a 2.0-litre UX 250h petrol motor.

The firm is continuing with its rather ambitious ‘self-charging hybrid’ phrase for the conventional hybrid system.

Base models will be front-wheel drive, with the E-Four all-wheel drive system offered for £1,250 extra: it is standard on the top-spec version. The UX is the first Lexus to be based on the firm’s new C-platform global architecture, called Lexus GA-C.

Lexus will be hoping the UX proves considerably more successful than its current compact offering, the Lexus CT200h.

There will be three variants – the base UX, F Sport and Takumi. All models feature climate control, sat nav and the Lexus Safety System+.

F Sport upgrades base 17-inch alloys to 18-inch, and adds an F Sport spindle grille and sports seats, rear privacy glass, electric heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Then there’s a big jump in price up to the Takumi, with the haul of equipment to match: ventilated ‘smooth leather’ seats, 13-speaker Mark Levinson stereo, 10-inch infotainment display, head-up display, sunroof and various other gadgets. Five options packs are offered, for UX and F Sport: the Takumi gets it all as standard.

A combination of hybrid technology as standard and strong equipment levels means the Lexus UX seems fairly competitively priced alongside rivals. The outgoing Audi Q3 starts from £27,915, the BMW X1 is priced from £28,930 and a Jaguar E-Pace costs from £29,280
