2020 Lexus UX250h is expected to come back with increased power, added optional packages, and loads of advanced features. That’s why any Lexus enthusiast should watch out to the release of this car in the future. But, considering the debut of C-HR, the upcoming Lexus UX may remain unchanged too.
The C-HR was known to be stylish enough to catch everyone’s attention. It already has that bold spindle grille, pronounced hips, luxurious wheels, and sharp headlights, making it better than before. And we assume that the brand new C-HR will hit the market in early 2020.
When it comes to the 2020 Lexus UX, we believe that the manufacturer will continue offering two models: 200 and 250h. The UX 200 is supposed to use the same 2.0L 4-cyl engine which can produce 169 horsepower. Then, how is about 2020 UX250? Read on to find out the answer.
2020 Lexus UX250h Preview and Changes
Under the hood, the UX 250h would probably employ an Atkinson-cycle 2.0L 4-cyl engine. This unit is paired with an electrically-controlled continuously variable gearbox and a rear axle-mounted electric motor. This combination will deliver 179 horsepower to all four wheels. Then, it can run up to 44 mph.
After reaching 44 mph, the UX 250h will alter to front-wheel-drive only. Since we assume that the new UX 250h won’t come with major changes, it might continue becoming IIHS Top Safety Pick just like its current model. This is because the car got high crash-test scores as well as standard automatic emergency braking.
Other standard safety tools that you can find on 2020 Lexus UX250h include adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, and many more. Furthermore, we also speculate that the interior won’t change so much. It still offers a similar 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space and convenient interior features.
The interior boasts an impressive classic style of Lexus. You can anticipate an expansive dash panel that accommodates wider infotainment displays. Then, this five-passenger SUV may be offered in the same trim levels as before. So, it will include the base trim level and F Sport variant.
2020 Lexus UX250h Prices and Release Date
When it comes to pricing and release date, there is, unfortunately, no official information for the upcoming Lexus UX. But, we assume that the car would be unveiled in late 2019. Since there won’t be significant changes, the price won’t be far from the current model. So, it would be between $33,175 and $40,375.
With its specs and pricing, the brand new UX250h will compete with the upcoming Mercedes GLA Class, BMW X1, and Audi Q3. Then, the estimated lease deal for the new UX250h would be around $329 per month with $2,999 due at signing. This price is for a 36-month deal.
In conclusion, the upcoming UX250h is supposed to come with no major shifts. It probably continues with the design and powertrain of the current model. For this reason, the price won’t change that much too. Now, let’s keep an eye to the official release of this 2020 Lexus UX250h.
