2018 Lexus UX Review & Changes – The Lexus UX and a seven-seat Lexus RX will reportedly be unveiled at the Tokyo motor show in November as Toyota’s luxury left arm enlarges its range of crossover vehicles. Based on Mag-X, the much more commodious RX will feature the very same 2790mm wheelbase as the five-seat RX at present on sale. To support a third row and two other travelers, the RX L will have a lengthened rear overhang. All up, the RX L is said to be 5050mm long, up to 160mm from the five-seat car.
The Japanese distribution feels the seven-seat RX will maintain the five-seat model’s rear window pane images, which might mean back seat passengers will have a limited look at in an outward direction. It is comprehended the seven-seat model will be provided in RX450hL trim, with a hybrid drivetrain partnering an electric motor with a 3.5-litre V6. An earlier document suggested the crossover will also be accessible without having the hybrid elements in an RX350L form.
Autocar reviews the new UX crossover will accompany the stretched RX on the Tokyo period. The UX will be the most compact Lexus crossover to date and will slot in below the NX. Most likely revealing a platform with a Toyota C-HR, the production UX will have a design that’s substantially motivated by the 2016 concept car from very last year’s Paris motor show. Expect the out-there interior, holographic shows and frameless windows to be tossed into the design dustbin, but the concept’s proportions and severely creased highlights will most likely stay. The UX concept is 4400mm lengthy and trips on a 2640mm wheelbase. For comparison, the NX comes with an all round length of 4630mm and a 2660mm wheelbase, and the Toyota C-HR is situated on a 2640mm wheelbase and actions 4360mm from idea to tail.
Neither of these two models happens to be confirmed for the Australian market, but Lexus’ community arm has already indicated its interest in the UX. In January, Peter McGregor, Lexus Australia’s CEO, advised CarAdvice: “We will consider any product, be it a model or a driveline, that we feel will enhance our consumer demands. “If we feel there is a consumer demand for that in Melbourne, we would certainly be adding our hand up for it and asking for it to be released in Modern Australia.”
