All luxury OEMs are rushing downstream to pick up as many new sales as possible. The best way to do so is with a compact semi-affordable crossover. The new Lexus UX looks as though it is ready to take all on in the segment.
From the available picture, the UX looks like an NX and an IS had a baby. In our minds, it could be the spiritual successor to the IS SportCross (remember it?) but it’s not quite handsome enough. All this to say that the UX is lower-slung than a conventional CUV, much like the Mercedes-Benz GLA. It’ll feature an all-new platform which Lexus promises will endow the UX with hatchback-like handling.
We figure it’ll wedge itself below the NX so should sport a base price well below the NX’s $44k. There are no other details to share at the moment other than the world-premiere will take place on March 6 at 10:00am local time at the Geneva Motor Show.
