The Lexus UX 200 SUV Is A Powerhouse
When it comes to driving in style, few cars do the job better than a beautifully designed compact SUV that combines the best of two worlds: the practicality of an SUV and the sleek silhouette of a hatchback. Offering that and more is the new Lexus UX 200 that boasts numerous innovations, technologically and artistically, that remain true to the essence of this Japanese luxury automaker.
“The all-new Lexus UX embodies everything that a driver would desire with ample technology, aesthetics, craftsmanship and luxury packaged in a vehicle that they would truly enjoy driving,” said Ravindran K., president of Lexus Malaysia.

Designed for the ultimate urban experience, the sculpted body of the UX 200 features crisp edges and bold lines that accentuate the sporty feel of the vehicle. While the face of the car features a new block-shape mesh pattern spindle grille that is sure to turn heads, we are even more excited about the fused tail lamps inspired by the rear wing of a racing car that serves as an aerodynamic spoiler. These 'wings' give the UX 200 an unmistakably futuristic look that stands out from the crowd.

This is particularly true for the UX 200 Luxury model that boasts an elegant interior that draws inspiration from the rich traditions of Japan. Run your hands over the interior trim finish that resembles washi, a Japanese paper commonly found in traditional homes, and enjoy the smooth leather seats that showcase another traditional Japanese craftsmanship — the exceptional Sashiko quilting renowned for its strength and famously used in judo and kendo uniforms. Seamlessly merging modernity and tradition, the cabin also features illuminated air vent knobs and the Lexus Remote Touch Interface for a truly futuristic feel.
Design-wise, there is also wide selection of interior and exterior colours to choose from.
Every model features an exceptional field of vision as the design team incorporates Engawa, a Japanese concept that harmoniously blends the exterior with the interior. Cruising along city streets becomes a more pleasant experience through the use of the latest Global Architecture-C platform that offers excellent dynamics and handling.
Additional functions that enhance convenience include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that put your favourite smartphone apps on the display screen, wireless charger, power back door with kick-open function and a panoramic-view mirror.
Safety is also top priority here and the UX 200 is equipped with the Lexus Safety System+ which employs various sophisticated sensors to ensure drivers can drive with ease. Other safety features include 8 SRS airbags, Adaptive High-Beam System and ISOFIX anchors that make the car suitable for family use.
The Lexus UX Urban model retails from RM 235,472, the Luxury model from RM 274,027 while the F Sport model starts from RM 289,363. For more information, visit Lexus Malaysia's official website.
