NEXT GEN!!! 2022 Lexus UX 250h HYBRID REVIEW | NEWS | RELEASE | SPECS | INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR – Lexus was late to the premium subcompact luxury game, entering the ever-expanding segment three years ago with the UX SUV. It’s offered in two versions. The UX 200 is equipped with a gasoline-fueled 2.0-liter engine powering the front wheels only; the UX 250h is a little more powerful and fuel efficient with an added hybrid component and optional all-wheel drive. Either way, it’s the smallest and least-expensive vehicle Lexus offers.

Hi welcome to auto car reviews lexus was late to the premium subcompact luxury game entering the ever expanding segment three years ago with the ux suv it’s offered in two versions the ux-200 is equipped with a gasoline-fueled 2.0 liter engine powering the front wheels only the ux250h is a little more powerful and fuel efficient with an added hybrid component and

Optional all-wheel drive either way it’s the smallest and least expensive vehicle lexus offers as you would expect voluminous interior space isn’t a priority in this small luxury suv segment still the ux is one of the smallest entries it also doesn’t offer as much driving enjoyment as some competitors with slow acceleration being a particular detraction regardless

Of powertrain in those ways its european competitors are handily superior still the distinctive design and the hybrid system’s excellent efficiency are two major selling points and even if we wouldn’t call the ux fun its composed handling and comfortable ride yield a perfectly pleasant driving experience what are the 2022 lexus ux interior and in-car technology

Like from the comfortable and supportive driver seat the ux looks and feels like a proper lexus the design is consistent with but refreshingly not a copy of other models there are common details like the drive mode setting selectors that sprout from the instrument panel and the f sports sliding gauge cluster within while the available 10.25 inch infotainment

Display is perched atop a low flat dash the materials covering the dash and front doors are appropriate for this luxury price point and consistent with the s 350 if not higher priced lexus models by contrast the hard plastic door panels in the rear are disappointingly more consistent with a toyota corolla however the ux features unique touches we like the contrast

Color dash and door trim available and offers different controls than other lexus models the climate system is operated by unique toggle switches while the air vents have little rotary controllers that look and feel better than those in a lexus s unfortunately the ux has been afflicted by the same curse as most other lexus models that have not yet received the new

Infotainment system that debuted in the 2022 nx yes the remote touch tech interface is still perpetually frustrating and distracting on the positive side apple carplay and android auto are standard and with fewer icons on the screen to select remote touch might actually work better with apples and google’s interfaces than it does with its own the ux also groups

Controls for volume and tuning plus menu shortcuts for radio and media in the wrist rest aft of the remote touch control pad this keeps these commonly used items closer at hand much as bmws or mazda’s interfaces do which is an improvement over other lexus cars that place them up on the dash basically your hand and eyes are moving less which is good thanks for watching
