Ten Essential Details Regarding the Lexus UX Hybrid

The cheapest Lexus is here to provide luxury at an affordable rate, and it even comes with a hybrid setup. Here's all you need to know about it.

2024 Lexus UX 250h

Japanese automaker Lexus has been doing its best to meet the ever-increase demand among "environmentally conscious" customers. Thanks to a variety of successful hybrid models, Lexus now has plans for many more. Added to the list is the all-new 2024 Lexus UX 250h, which also happens to be the smallest Lexus of all. Lexus, the luxury vehicle department of Toyota, has manufactured the 2024 UX 250h with city dwellers in mind. It might not be the most spacious or comfortable rides out there for a family but is certainly worth the bucks for individual or couples looking for a daily commute. At one glance, this vehicle comes off as nothing more than a big hatchback, however, the company claims it to be a city SUV and truth be told, it certainly boasts enough features to be called so. The pint-sized hybrid SUV comes in FWD and AWD options. Here are 10 things that you might want to know about this vehicle.

10 Powered By The Fourth-Gen Lexus Hybrid Drive Powertrain

Thanks to the fourth-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain, the UX 250h packs 181 system horsepower under the hood. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and two electric motors provide the 2024 Lexus UX 250h with the required oomph to cruise through the city traffic and highways without causing any anxiety. The engine and the motor work in tandem to give this hybrid luxury crossover enough sportiness. Lexus claims the FWD UX 250h can go from 0 to 60 MPH within just 8.4 seconds. The same increases to 8.6 seconds for an AWD. The top track speed is said to be 110 MPH, which isn't bad after all for a daily-use luxury crossover.

9 Signature Lexus Exterior

Lexus isn't called a luxury brand for no reason. All of its vehicles boast a luxury appearance indeed and the UXh is no different. We begin with the iconic Lexus spindle grille that features a block-shaped mesh pattern that gradually changes shape of the central Lexus insignia. The headlamp design comprising LED DRLs that look like arrowheads complete the face of the UX 250h. The full-width rear lights are distinctive in the all-new UXh. The vehicle exudes sportiness, thanks to its aerodynamic design. The 18-in five-spoke alloy wheels (split-five-spoke in F SPORT trims) add to it. Furthermore, a flat underbody and a wing-styled spoiler at the rear end ensure quiet driving.

8 Based On A High-Strength Global Architecture Platform

Lexus has evidently emphasized quiet ride, comfort, and smooth handling agility. To ensure the same, it has built the UXh around the high-strength global architecture platform. This involves the use of high-tensile steel, high-strength adhesives, and laser screw welding. The highly rigid yet lightweight structure makes sure the SUV delivers sporty handling. The hood, side doors, and fenders are made using aluminum, resulting in a low center of gravity of 23.4 inches. This makes the UXh much more agile. The UX hybrid has been purposefully crafted for city driving and its 17.1-foot turning radius is a testament to the same. If these aren't enough, there are also five driving modes to choose from. However, it is a feature limited to the F SPORT HANDLING trim.

7 The Lexus UX 250h Boasts A Driver-Focused Interior

Lexus has taken lessons from the interiors of the 2022 Lexus UX and the 2023 Lexus UX while designing the 2024 edition. The interior department has been massively revamped to add more luxury and sophistication. A standard seven-inch (eight-inch in the F SPORT HANDLING) touchscreen will be the first thing to catch your eye once inside this subcompact SUV. You can raise this to 12.3 inches with the optional package. The performance-inspired instrument cluster follows. The combo of touchscreen plus knob makes accessing the control easier. Fast-charging USB ports, a wireless charger, and a color head-up display are a few of the notable features inside the Lexus UX hybrid. The posh materials used inside certainly emanate class. You also get decent space, if not much, with this hybrid vehicle.

White 2024 Lexus UX 250h

All things considered, the Lexus UX 250h is a dream daily commute luxury vehicle crafted for the city roads. But, if there's one department where it shatters the expectation is the lack of space when it comes to rear passengers and cargo space. The front passengers get to enjoy a headroom of 37.2-inch, 42.0-inch legroom, 55.0 shoulder room, and 53.8-inch hip room as compared to the backseat passengers.
