Two versions of the new Lexus UX

The 2019 Lexus UX offers two versions with the first being the Lexus UX 200. It’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 168 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque through a continuously variable automatic transmission.

The engine focuses on usable urban power which makes the UX one of the most fuel-efficient luxury sport utility vehicles. Knowing that city driving doesn’t require outrageous amounts of power, Lexus engineers have equipped the UX with an engine that provides ample low-end power and torque for confident accelerations in the city, but also a fuel consumption rating of less than 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers.

The other available option in the 2019 Lexus UX lineup is the Lexus UX 250h hybrid. As the only hybrid in this segment, the new 2019 Lexus UX takes the same 2.0-liter engine which has been tuned to run on the Atkinson Cycle and paired with two electric motors and a 24 kWh battery.

This model not only provides more power (175 horsepower), it also features all-wheel drive. That said, it remains fuel-efficient with an average fuel economy rating of just 6.1 liters per 100 kilometers.
