Extra style from Lexus
The new Premium Sport Edition is added to the UX hybrid compact SUV range
Lexus has enhanced the UX hybrid compact SUV range for the 2021 model year with the addition of a striking new Premium Sport Edition that offers extra style, high equipment specification and strong customer value.
The new grade is identified by its distinctively sporty styling, which adopts an all-black theme across the grille and frame, five-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, door mirror casings, roof rails and headlight units.
According to some experts, it’s all about some cosmetic tweaks and some extra technology for new Lexus UX Premium Sport Edition. However, the starting price is £33,150.
As regards the interior, the seats are upholstered in black Tahara material, “the supple alternative to leather”, as Lexus officials say, actually it is a synthetic material. The list of equipment also includes helpful technology such as a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lexus Navigation.
It’s powered by a self-charging hybrid powertrain, which comprises a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and a compact battery pack. The system has an output of 181bhp and Lexus says it’ll return up to 53.3mpg, while producing only 124g/km of CO2 – which secures it a 27 percent benefit-in-kind rating for company car tax.
