There is huge change announced about 2020 Lexus UX. It is actually one of the greatest news that they could say – the new hybrid engine that this crossover could get. However, according to the manufacturer, nothing is finished yet, so we are not sure how it could look like and which exactly engine could be found under the hood. Even the managers are not sure how the final version will look like. As they said, many details are still not defined and designers are working on them.
The only we can say about the design of 2020 Lexus UX is that it will not be much different from the current model and similar crossovers in the class. The manufacturer obviously has decided to change only the details. There is recognizable rhomboidal mesh grille on the front end and large LED front lights on the sides of it. The rear end is short and rounded, with lines on the trunk door instead of the classical rear lights.
It is obvious that we are not able to say much about the design of the cabin inside of 2020 Lexus UX when the manufacturer has still not finished the exterior look yet, but it will be comfortable and elegant as on other models in this class. We expect great devices and technology, too.
As Chief Engineer and Lexus Executive Vice President, Chika Kako said, there are plans about the new hybrid engine under the hood of 2020 Lexus UX. However, it will not be so new for this model, since the old UX version already has a hybrid engine. It is a 2.0-liter petrol unit paired with the electric engine that produces 175 horsepower of strength and 151 pound-feet of torque. The fact is that they plan something much better and more economical, and as they said, cheaper for the middle class of the buyers. With this design and engine, UX is close to Toyota Harrier and maybe Toyota Avensis, both great crossovers that this manufacturer makes.
2020 Lexus UX Release Date and Price
As we have heard, the new 2020 Lexus UX is still on the designer’s table, so it is hard to say how it will look like later. However, there are a few interesting clues that we should consider about. If the model is possible, it will surely not be on the market by the end of the next year. Expect many novelties and changes, as well as improvements in design and engine strength and type. Other information is not clearly known yet. The old model had a price of $31,000 for the base version. We are not sure how much the new version will cost.
- The price of the model is attractive to a wide class of the buyers.
- There is the new hybrid engine.
- The design of the car is not much original.
