: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What's New

The 2023 Lexus UX loses its gas-only powertrain, receives updated active safety technology, adopts upgraded infotainment software and hardware, incorporates improved handling and quietness, sees a revised dash panel, and gains two F Sport trims among its revised trim line-up.

Choosing Your Lexus UX

The UX is offered in four trims: Base, Premium, F Sport Design, and F Sport Handling. Prices range from $35,925 to $43,355.

Engine Choices

The 2023 UX is only equipped with a hybrid powertrain. It consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 24 kW Ni-MH battery pack while models with all-wheel-drive ($1,400) utilize an additional motor as a rear differential (eliminating the rear drive shaft and transfer gears). The total output is 181 horsepower and a continuously-variable transmission routes power to the front wheels.

The UX earns an EPA-estimated 43 miles per gallon city, 41 mpg highway, and 42 combined with front-wheel drive. Those figures drop to 41, 38, and 39 with all-wheel-drive and nearly match the RAV4 Hybrid, although its powertrain is noticeably more powerful.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The UX compares in size to the Audi Q3, BMW X2, and Volvo XC40 with its 177-inch length and 72.4-inch width, however, the UX compromises passenger space for styling more so than the competition and can muster just 33.1 inches of rear legroom, 36.3 inches of rear headroom, and 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat (40.4 cubic feet with the seats folded).

The UX is not recommended for towing.

Safety Features

The UX is now equipped with Lexus’ latest safety suite that sees improvements to the automatic emergency braking system, the adaptive cruise control system, and the lane-centering function. Blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and traffic sign recognition are also standard.

The UX with the updated safety systems has not been fully evaluated by IIHS although the 2022 model was rated as a 2022 Top Safety Pick. The standard headlights received a Poor rating while the upgraded version is rated Good.


The UX receives a new multi-media system with over-the-air update capability and a larger and higher-resolution screen that measures eight inches. A 12.3-inch screen is available with a $1,405 option package on the Premium and is standard on the F Sport trims. These trims also include a premium 10-speaker sound system. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and remote connectivity are also included as standard and a redesigned wireless charging pad is available for $75.

2023 Lexus UX Base – MSRP From $35,925

The UX features 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights, heated door mirrors, proximity entry, synthetic leather seats with eight-way power adjustability for the driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster, and dual-zone climate control.

A color head-up display is available for $900 and a sunroof is offered for $1,100.

2023 Lexus UX Premium – MSRP From $38,385

The Premium trim adds color-keyed fenders, a sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free power tailgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and heated and ventilated seats with driver’s side memory.

2023 Lexus UX F Sport Design – MSRP From $38,385

The F-Sport Design takes on most of the features from the Premium trim and additionally wears dark gray 18-inch wheels, a unique F-Sport grille, dark roof rails, a black-painted roof panel, fog lights, premium headlights with cornering lights and automatic leveling, and dual-tone synthetic leather seats (blue and gray) which unfortunately lose their ventilation functionality (although made available for $680).

2023 Lexus UX F Sport Handling – MSRP From $43,355

The F Sport adds to the F Sport Design with performance chassis dampers and adaptive suspension dampers, additional steering system bracing, synthetic leather heated and cooled sport seats (available in red), a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters, a unique shift knob, an F-Sport eight-inch gauge display with sliding bezel, as well as entry-with-a-phone technology, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, and red contrast stitching.

CarsDirect Tip

The UX seems to offer a substantial value until its compact interior is factored in. Still, the Premium trim with the upgraded infotainment system provides an impressive level of safety and infotainment technology as well as creature comforts for being priced under $40,000.
