Japanese magazine Mag-X is reporting the upcoming Lexus UX will be enter into its final stage of testing this fall and will launch in October of 2018.

It’s expected the UX will share a platform with the new Toyota Prius — the design will draw deeply from the UX Concept from last year’s Paris Motor Show, with a full lightbar across the trunk and a coupe-like profile.

As for powertrains, we can look at the trademarks filed earlier this year — the UX 200, UX 250, and UX 250h were all registered in Europe, and have been extensively discussed on the Lexus Enthusiast forums.
