The folks at Motor Trend are not sold on the Lexus UX crossover, turning in a lukewarm review with a harsh final judgment:
In public, the 2019 Lexus UX stands out, especially in F Sport guise with its blacked-out grille and large faux air intakes in the lower front fascia. Taillights with integrated fins create a distinctive look, especially with the full-width LED light strip. The available triple-beam LED headlights provide the full predator effect.
With both of our testers checking in at just over $40,000, you have to be completely sold on the Lexus’ curb appeal, unique interior design, or the hybrid’s superior fuel economy to get a UX. Young, tech-savvy consumers who expect everything to seamlessly integrate with their lives will find it hard to overlook the UX’s poor packaging, frustrating driver assists, and complicated infotainment system.
