How Efficient is the 2023 Lexus UX 250h AWD?

The 2023 Lexus UX 250h AWD is the smallest SUV in the Lexus model lineup. Competing in the popular sub-compact luxury crossover SUV category, the UX delivers razor-edge styling, a dynamic driving experience and all-wheel drive capability. Don’t let its miniature footprint fool you though, because this vehicle packs a punch when it comes to efficiency and practicality. Equipped with an intelligent all-wheel drive system and rear-hatchback design that opens up to a generously sized cargo area, the UX 250h AWD is an ideal urban runaround vehicle, especially in the tight and snow-covered city streets of Calgary.

Lexus Hybrid Drive Powertrain

Solely offered as a hybrid-electric model, the 2023 Lexus UX 250h AWD is equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, matched to a 216V nickel-metal hydride battery that generates a net 181 net horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission, this fuel-sipping hybrid powertrain delivers stellar fuel economy metrics of 5.7L/100km in the city, 6.2L/100km on the highway and 6.0L/100km during combined driving. These figures are made even more impressive considering that the UX 250h is equipped with an all-wheel drive system, which typically means that fuel efficiency takes a negative hit. Thanks to the UX’s intelligent dual motor design, the electric power generated by the battery is sent to a front- and a rear-mounted motor, delivering ample amounts of power and traction, when necessary.
