Lexus UX 200 F Sport Platinum is a strong contender for the perfect recreational crossover on offer today. Sporty design, smooth luxurious drive, great fuel economy and engine reliability are the main features of this car.
Other strong competitors in its class are Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40 who are able to deliver stronger engine performance but fall short when it comes to cabin luxury and comfort.
Having the same engine and drivetrain as the new Toyota Corolla, Lexus UX200 has a bit more power in comparison. It also the exact same length as a Toyota Corolla but is considerably higher and has a slightly larger luggage space.
The car steers sharply and is relatively quiet unless you activate the Sport S+ mode and really step on the gas. High profile 18-inch premium metallic tyres make you hardly feel any bumps on the road and offer a luxury drive. Overall fuel economy of the car is very good and driving in the city turns out to be its forte.

The aggressive spindle grille which is now signature to Lexus; dominates the front end of the UX 200. There is plastic cladding dressed on the sides to make the car look tough.
The three dimensional lights connected in the middle by an LED light are the main feature of the rear end of Lexus UX 200. This arrangement looks beautiful at night.
Lexus UX 200 F Sport Platinum comes with exceptional build quality with leather seats and attention to detail all around the cabin with fancy finishes.
The infotainment system is advanced and a bit complexed to operate as its controlled by a sensitive touch pad located near the gear shaft.
Front row seating is comfortable leather that is perforated for ventilation and heating.
Lexus UX 200 is supposed to seat 5 people but small leg room in the rear seats can make things tight for taller passengers. If you are looking for a longer journey, best keep the car occupants to a maximum of 4 only.
