Should I Buy the 2021 Lexus UX?

The UX’s standard safety features are a highlight, but this is a small SUV; getting five people aboard will be a squeeze. The cargo area is small, too. The two available drivetrains are in no way bristling with power, but both the UX 200 and the UX 250h have great EPA-estimated gas mileage. The frustrating touchpad-based multimedia interface may be a deal-breaker for some shoppers.

Most comfortable car I ever have.

The car met all my needs. The ride is smooth and quiet, it has a lot of legroom both front & back. I like the look of the car. It is a right size for me.
