2020 Lexus UX 250h review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Lexus UX?

The Lexus UX is a five-seat subcompact luxury SUV that’s offered in gas-only UX 200 and gas-electric hybrid UX 250h forms. The UX 200 comes with front-wheel drive, while the UX 250h has all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

What’s New on the 2020 Lexus UX?

Android Auto smartphone connectivity joins Apple CarPlay as standard equipment. 

What Features in the 2020 Lexus UX Are Most Important?

Despite the UX’s entry-level position in Lexus’ lineup, its interior features upscale materials and high-tech features like an available 10.25-inch dashboard screen. A long list of standard active safety features includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, rear automatic braking and automatic high-beam headlights. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Lexus UX?

The UX’s standard safety features are a highlight, but this is a small SUV and 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 UX 250h get great EPA-estimated gas mileage. A deal-breaker for some shoppers may be the frustrating touchpad-based multimedia interface.

Love my Hybrid Sport

I've had mine for 2 years now. Bought it new at Lexus of Louisville. The service there is excellent. I have the sport model and I couldn't be more satisfied. The ride is smooth. The gas mileage is great. The small size is all I need. The back seats lay down if I need extra room. It has good power for me and I would buy it again.



I just bought a new car from Watertown Lexus. I met William at the door, he was very helpful and made the entire process easy from start to finish. His customer service was excellent and he was honest, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend him!


Lexus Groupie

I enjoy the Lexus brand. The vehicle runs well and as a hybrid is extremely economical. It feels luxurious with the trademark Lexus interior styling.
