- F SPORT Special Edition joinsthe lineup, offering Canadian guests five choices of this popular self-charging hybrid all-wheel-drive luxury compact crossover
- All models enhanced for 2022 with a rear seat reminder as a standard safety feature
TORONTO, ONTARIO – OCTOBER 1, 2021 – It’s innovative, agile, luxurious, and connected. It’s confident, efficient, and advanced. It’s everything you want for an active urban lifestyle in Canada – and more. It’s the 2022 Lexus UX 250h – the all-wheel-drive self-charging hybrid that’s a cut above in the luxury compact crossover space.
“The UX hybrid stands out from the crowd and makes a powerful statement, with a winning combination of city-smart technology and bold urban style, ready to enable your active lifestyle,” said Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus in Canada. “Fusing SUV-versatility with the agility of a hatchback, the UX hybrid is also filled with intuitive technology to keep you connected with the wider world. This year, we’re pleased to add a fifth model – an F SPORT special edition that provides yet another sporty, stylish choice.”
All UX 250h AWD models are urban savvy and display their sophistication with cutting edge, convention-shattering design. A bold interpretation of the signature Lexus Spindle Grille is bracketed by large air intakes and dramatically flared wheel fenders that emphasize the UX’s strong crossover qualities. Its nimble performance and excellent handling shine through in details like aero-stabilizing blade lights and the alloy wheels. At the rear, a continuous line of LEDs connect the combination lamps in a single line to round out the UX’s innovative character and cutting-edge appeal.
What’s more, the UX’s striking design blurs the boundary between outside and inside. The hood appears to flow into the cabin to form the instrument panel, creating a sense of seamless continuity. The cabin has space for five adults, welcoming driver and passengers to a spacious atmosphere of uncompromising luxury. Front seats are eight-way power adjustable and heated. Rear seat passengers enjoy an airy, open space, while rear seats split 60/40 to open up generous cargo space.
The UX cabin is also a technology showcase, well appointed with powerful yet intuitive features and systems. All models feature touchscreen display audio systems, Lexus connectivity services, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility to keep you in touch and in tune, no matter where the journey takes you. Other standard technology features include USB audio input, integrated Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and Bluetooth connectivity.
More than a stylish and connected crossover, the UX possesses the nimble moves to make driving in urban areas most enjoyable. Built on the Lexus Compact Global Architectural Platform (GA-C), the UX features high structural rigidity, a low centre of gravity, and the tightest turning radius in its class. The UX is really to respond – quickly and surely – to your every input, delivering an exceptionally agile driving experience.
The UX 250h AWD features the responsive power and remarkable fuel efficiency of the fourth-generation of the Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid Electric system. This powertrain combines a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, electronic continuously variable transmission, and high-torque electric motors to generate 181 net system horsepower. The UX 250h also features an innovative electronic on-demand AWD system that enhances confidence and elevates control. When accelerating, cornering, or driving on slippery surfaces, an additional electric motor at the back of the vehicle automatically adjusts the power-split between front and rear axles. The result is exceptional handling stability and greater traction across a range of driving situations – all without compromising cargo space. The best part? It does all this while achieving a fuel efficiency of 6.0 L / 100 km (city/highway combined), which means less time at the pumps and lower emissions.
All UX 250h AWD models are ready to help you deal with the unexpected, with a comprehensive safety package headlined by Lexus Safety System+ 2.0. This integrated suite of active safety features supports your awareness and decision making under a variety of conditions and contingencies. Other standard safety equipment includes 10 air bags, a backup camera, and the Blind Spot Monitoring System. New for 2022, all UX 250h AWD models are now fitted with the Rear Seat Reminder safety feature, which helps drivers remember to check the rear seat for children or pets before leaving the vehicle unattended.
