A fan of Lexus? Have you watched the teaser for the much anticipated Lexus UX?
18 seconds of video, cinematically highlighting the unique taillights of the SUV - which by the way is one of the coolest taillight designs we've seen in a car, Lexus Malaysia simply wants to convey that with this car, "something exciting is coming your way" and that it is "boldly refined".
The UX is Lexus' smallest SUV. It will go up against the likes of BMW's X1, Audi's Q3 and Mercedes' GLA. Globally it can be had in six different variants, and all of them will be mated to a CVT transmission. They will all be powered by a 2.0-litre engine with the lowest option (UX 200 FWD) pushing out 169 hp and the range-topping variant with a hybrid system ( UX 250h Luxury AWD) kicking out 181hp.
Unfortunately, Malaysia will only be getting three different variants of the UX200 spec which include the Urban, Luxury and F Sport
The UX is Lexus' attempt to entice younger buyers to Lexus and through its great looking design and solid build quality it just might be able to do that.
Some of the other highlights of the car are its fantastic turning circle, fuel efficiency and highlighted extra noise insulation which promises to keep things extra quiet, even when it is pouring down outside.
It is currently open for booking and if you order it now you will get the SUV by May.
We'll be sure to bring you updates as it comes!
