The Lexus UX250h is the most expensive (and hybrid-powered) engine option in the UX family, and is available in three trim levels; Sport ($47,950) Sports Luxury ($56,500) and F Sport ($56,950). Those prices are two-wheel-drive cars, though. Opting for AWD increases pricing to $61,000 (F Sport) and $61,450 (Sports Luxury).

It’s powered by the same 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine as the Lexus UX200, but paired with a hybrid motor that produces combined outputs of 131kW and 188Nm. It is paired with a CVT automatic transmission which sends its power to the front tyres, or to all four wheels if you opt for an AWD model

The Luxury trim buys you 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, faux-leather seats and trim, a nav-equipped 10.3-inch infotainment screen and an eight-speaker stereo as standard. There is STILL no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but Lexus promises it will arrive at some point this year. 

The range then splits in two, with the Sports Luxury on one side and a equally pegged F-Sport on the other, but of what the brand calls its "Y" strategy.

The Sports Luxury adds things like 19-inch alloys, acoustic glass and real leather trim on the seats, while The F Sport nabs you a more performance-focused flavour, with adaptive suspension, five drive modes (Eco, Normal, Sport, Sport+, Custom) and a sportier exterior design, albeit with smaller, 18-inch alloys.
