2019 Lexus UX review


Cabin space is decent, at least as far as front and rear passengers go. Luggage volume, though, is a lot less than we would have expected from a vehicle whose overall length (4495mm) is greater than that of the Volvo XC40 (4425mm).

In fact, even the more spacious 2.0-litre petrol UX variant can only manage to free up a maximum of 312L, whereas the hybrid version makes do with just 265L. That’s in stark contrast to the Volvo’s 460–517L of storage space. It’s an important consideration for new families and those weekend sports warriors.

Safety kit, on the other hand, is extremely well catered for aboard the Lexus. For starters, there are eight airbags as well as all the active systems like all-speed radar active cruise control, pre-collision system with pedestrian and cyclist detection, and lane-keep assist with lane-departure alert with steering assist. There’s also road sign assist, adaptive high beam, and intelligent high-beam headlamps with automatic high beam.
