What’s good about the 2020 Lexus UX?

This model is priced as one of the lowest for those looking to ride something out of the lineup of vehicles. The 200 configuration comes at a manufacturer suggest retail price of $32,300 while the 250h Luxury is the higher end of the spectrum with a MSRP of $39,700. There is a total of six available configurations with the 200 F Sport, 250h, 250h F Sport, and 200 Luxury completing the lineup.

The crossover SUV is one of the most desirable types of cars in the marketplace right now. Fuel economy is one of the other nice features of these crossovers with a combined figure of 33 miles per gallon for the series.

It is newer and modern so that the company is trying to take things to the next level and has been quite successful with this entry. It has all of the great styling and interior look that one would expect from a brand-new model.

What’s bad about the 2020?

One of the negative drawbacks from this version is that it is a little smaller and less roomy than other makes of crossover SUVs. Since being based on the Toyota C-HR, which is in the same class as the Honda’s HR-V and the Mazda CX-3. It is the smallest crossover SUV that the company makes.

The BMW X1 is an example of a vehicle that beats it in these areas. However, it an owner is looking to stay with a lighter and smaller SUV then that may not be a problem.

All-wheel drive is available, but only for the 250h hybrid version. Even then, it is only used for speeds up to 43 miles per hour before the system automatically moves back to regular front-wheel drive for efficiency purposes.

What do experts say about the 2020 Lexus UX?

The experts agree that ground clearance could be an issue for those hoping to take their newly acquired 2020 Lexus US on an off-road adventure.

While there is no specific quoted figure, it can be assumed that the clearance is near the 5.9 inches of the Toyota CH-R that it is based on. It is the trademark for “Urban Explorer” and it is expected that most drivers will want to keep the vehicle on the smooth roads of the city and highways.

Each one can be expected to have all of the great active assistance and safety features that anyone who has driven the make before will understand. For example, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning with steering assistance, radar-based adaptive cruise control, and road-sign recognition.

The most expert recommended model looks to be the 2020 Lexus US 250H Hybrid because of its extra engine power and modified all-wheel drive with that coming at a price of only a couple thousand more dollars.

The 250H has 39 mpg of fuel efficiency while the base 200 only comes with 33 mpg. If you go with this line then there should be no reason not to go with these slight upgrades.
