Standing out from the crowd has never looked so beautiful in a Lexus, and the UX takes it one step further with its uniquely bold and dramatic design, inspired by a hatchback but with all the utility of an SUV. Its imposing signature grille flares out to cut strong, powerful lines down the vehicle, accentuating its crossover SUV style. The sleek look of both the front lights and wheels that slyly frame the vehicle create an aerodynamic build that is just waiting to cut through the wind.
Elevate your UX experience and excite your senses even further with an F SPORT Series 1 or 2 package. Features are highlighted by the following, delivering an equal dose of performance and style:

This sole UX 250h model is home to the 4th generation Self-Charging Hybrid Electric powertrain, reaching 181 horsepower, and all at a terrific efficiency that prevents stops for fuel as much as possible.
A prime benefit of this UX250h in our ever-demanding year-round Calgary weather is its all-wheel drive capabilities. AWD gives you ultimate control over your environment, gripping on slippery roads and easily cornering without losing a handle by adjusting the power sent to the front and rear axles.
The UX was made to handle expertly, made possible by the new Compact Global Architectural Platform, featuring a low centre of gravity, rigidity and a tight-turning radius that puts all others in its class to shame. Not only is the 2022 Lexus UX strong and powerful, but also agile and efficient.

|Engine||2.0L inline 4-cylinder DOHC Dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i)|

Convenience, connectivity and entertainment are all represented out of this luxury SUV through its convenient touchscreen systems. Standard is a 7-inch display, supported by 6 speakers, and available is a 10.3-inch screen with an 8-speaker system and Lexus Navigation with Remote that further connects you like never before.

Mixing Lexus tech with the many safety features in your UX is the backup camera. Take care of your Lexus in any crowded parking lot or tight street parking situation by being able to see exactly what’s behind you as you slip into a spot, avoiding every obstacle as you park.
Driving with such dynamism in the Lexus UX means you need to be ready for everything, and the standard Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 ensures that you are. The LSS+ 2.0 consists of a plethora of active features that assist you and your Lexus SUV toward a safe drive. Highlighted are:
A standard Blind Spot Monitor lets you know of any vehicles you can’t see with your own eyes, allowing you to change lanes when safe.
When it’s time to park or back out, the Intuitive Parking Assist with auto braking alerts you if you come close to an obstacle, even helping with reducing drive force and applying braking if needed.
