Lexus unveiled its new crossover as the Dubai International Financial Centre on the 8th of December 2018. A pretty unconventional choice for a car launch, we must say. Also, the manner in which it was showcased was equally unique, a light and car dance show was put up for the press and socialite crowd. Inspired by Japanese aesthetics and robotics spree, the new UX reflects a bold, upbeat, and young profile. In short, it is a head-turner.


Thinking what UX stands for, well it's a combination of words Urban and X-over (crossover). The two things Lexus design team says is the vehicle’s mission. Making it an exception entry in the already loaded crossover segment is its engaging driving dynamics that is accompanied by brands smooth demeanor.


In the words of Lexus International, Executive Vice President, and Chief Engineer, Ms. Chika Kako “The Lexus UX is designed for the modern urban explorer seeking a fresh, contemporary, and dynamic take on luxury driving. We designed the UX to appeal to young buyers who seek not only what is new and exciting, but what is also relevant to their lifestyles.”


Here are a few key highlights about the new Lexus UX200 -



  • The new UX is designed on the company’s first Global Architecture Compact platform. It features a low centre of gravity that makes it a car emphasising on high agility, ride quality, stability, and nimble performance
