Lexus has claimed that its upcoming UX crossover, which is on show in Geneva, will be as agile as a hatchback thanks to an all-new platform with a low centre of gravity. The small SUV will cost from £29,900 when sales start, and deliveries begin in March.
The new car is one of the brand's most aggressive-looking models. Inside, there's a new widescreen infotainment system that appears related to the one used in the Lexus LS. F-Sport trim, priced from £33,900, adds sportier elements to the car's styling, and extra equipment inside such as a heated steering wheel and electrically adjustable seats.
The small SUV, which brings the fight to the Jaguar E-Pace and Mercedes-Benz GLA, stems from the UX concept, which was revealed at the Paris motor show in 2016. The production UX is priced a little above most rivals, with the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40 priced from £27,915, £27,630 and £25,105 respectively, although none of these are have a hybrid powertrain like the UX, which launches in UX 250h specification.
