All UX grades offer eight airbags, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
Standard equipment levels in the base Luxury grade include a 12.3-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, Bluetooth telephony, ‘Hey, Lexus!’ voice recognition, 10-speaker audio, DAB+ digital radio, satellite navigation, climate control, an electronic park brake, keyless entry/start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote engine-start/door-unlocking/hazard flashers/buzzer, acoustic windscreen glass, heated/powered mirrors, a powered steering column, heated/powered front seats, roof rails, alarm, a powered tailgate and alloy wheels.
Going for the hybrid version also ushers in a kick sensor for that powered tailgate, a wireless phone charger, cornering lights, headlight cleaners and rear privacy glass. These form part of an ‘Enhancement Pack 2’.
For goodies like LED headlights, auto-folding mirrors, a sunroof, surround-view camera, head-up display, larger alloy wheels, memory settings for the front seat, premium leather upholstery, upgraded audio, ritzier finishes, and all-wheel drive, you’ll need to forgo the base UX Luxury grade and step up to the Sports Luxury or F Sport models.
The latter, by the way, introduces sportier trim, firmer suspension, and a host of other changes designed to make the UX seem a little bit racier.
