What's on this page

Lexus UX Australia

The Lexus UX launched in 2018 as a small SUV that went big on luxury. With city-friendly size and the choice of a number of variants – all packed with lengthy standard equipment lists – it has been a hit for the Japanese luxury brand on a global scale.

Part of the appeal is the fact it comes with the choice of petrol or petrol-electric hybrid variants across the range. The desire for hybrid models across SUVs and cars of all shapes and sizes has been gathering momentum over the years, and Lexus has remained at the forefront.

It’s one of the brand’s most affordable vehicles, too, with the UX UX200 Luxury starting at $44,445, while the fully kitted-out UX UX250H F Sport +EP2 Hybrid (awd) costs $69,700

Lexus UX Interior

The baby Lexus SUV makes no sacrifices on the inside, offering lots of space for passengers, and a premium fit and finish. A large 10.3-inch multimedia screen sits front and centre on the dashboard, but controls can be a bit hit and miss.

The steering wheel and shifter feel premium, thanks to the leather trim, while the interior’s mix of surfaces and lines keep things interesting to look at. Being a small SUV, rear seat comfort can be compromised for large passengers, but a decent-sized glove box, big door bins, capacious centre console and wireless smartphone charger mean the Lexus UX offers plenty of practicality.

Lexus UX Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Lexus UX here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What used hybrid should I buy?

    The world of hybrids is moving very fast, Hannah, and the rule of thumb is that newer is better purely because the technology is improving all the time. You’re obviously concerned with running costs and your carbon-footprint, so the latest hybrid technology with a full factory warranty would seem to be an obvious way to go.

    That puts the new Corolla Hybrid firmly in the frame as both a car with the latest planet-saving and life-saving tech as well as Toyota’s five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty as well as a ten-year warranty on the hybrid’s batteries. For some reason, Lexus hasn’t budged on its four-year warranty, meaning that a 2017 CT200h might only have a few months of factory cover to run if your bought it now. You’ll also potentially pay more for the second-hand Lexus than you will for the brand-new Corolla.

    The only real drawback with the Corolla Hybrid is that its luggage space – because of the battery-packs – is quite shallow. But beyond that it’s a great car with the hybrid driveline thrown in for just a couple of grand extra. That’s a bargain and it’s one of the reasons the new Corolla will be a lot of Australian families’ first hybrid.
