A year and a half after the concept, Lexus will present the series version of the 2019 Lexus UX, its third SUV in Europe, on March 6 in Geneva. The hybrid motorization will obviously be mandatory!
The premium compact SUV segment is animated. Two safe values will be renewed in the course of the year: the Audi Q3 and Range Rover Evoque. Above all, the category is growing, with the arrival in the concessions of BMW X2, Jaguar E-Pace, and Volvo XC40. And it’s not over since Lexus is getting ready to unveil the Brand New Lexus UX.
The Japanese confirmed it by releasing a teaser: its third SUV for Europe, after the RX and NX, will make its debut on March 6 at the Geneva Fair. The builder does not give more information at the moment. The first picture shows the stern plunged into the twilight, and this time playing with the contrasts reveals nothing! So we only have the luminous signature to put under the tooth, with a headband of lights that travels the entire width of the vehicle.
The UX had been foreshadowed by a concept car unveiled in September 2016 at the World Automotive. The serial version will resume the Exterior Design. The Lexus design is very demonstrative, the series UX will not be as much. The final result will remain original, with angular shapes and many body folds. What to distinguish in the category.
2019 Lexus UX Specs
The 2019 Lexus UX will have another asset in front of its competitors: a hybrid drive of course. Group logic requires, the base should be that of the Toyota C-HR, which is currently equipped with a 122 HP gasoline-electric ensemble. The UX could have more power, especially since Toyota had announced in 2017 the arrival of a more muscular C-HR. We will soon have the answer since we are only two weeks away from the Geneva Motor Show 2018.
