Lexus Malaysia recently launched the all-new Lexus UX on our shores, and Eu Jin had the opportunity to take it out on the roads to see what it’s all about.
There are three trim levels available for the Lexus UX – Urban (RM243,888), Luxury (RM283,888), and F-Sport (RM299,888). For a complete breakdown of kit offered for each variant, do check out our launch article.
All variants are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine, producing 169 hp and 205 Nm of torque, paired to a Direct Shift CVT (mechanical first gear) to drive the front wheels.
Performance wise, Lexus claims that the UX does the century sprint in 9.2 seconds, onward to a top speed of 190 km/h.
The Lexus UX is built on the TNGA-C platform, which underpins other cars such as the Toyota C-HR and Corolla; Eu Jin was happy to report that the three pillars of the TNGA – Stability, Agility and Visibility – are present here as well.
