I recently had a chance to drive the 2020 Lexus UX 250h AWD for a few days. This car has a fourth-generation hybrid drive system with a 2.0-liter gas engine for high fuel efficiency. The all-wheel-drive feature is really nice for a hybrid vehicle.

Is the Lexus UX 250h a Hybrid

This is also a good looking car with plenty of space and state-of-the-art technology. Here’s what stood out about the Lexus UX.

Fuel Economy

The 2020 Lexus UX 250h is a true luxury hybrid car with combined electric motor and 2.0-liter gas engine. The engine has a total 181 horsepower with the best MPG fuel efficiency of any CUV or SUV on the market in the US. The combined city and highway estimate is 39 MPG.


This car sits low to the ground with a confident stance. The front grille is impressive and is flanked by LED headlamps that appear to be gazing at you like eyes. The body is aerodynamically designed with sweeping curves, unlike some of the boxier compact SUVs from the competition. The interior cabin of the 2020 Lexus UK has the feel of a luxury sedan with high-end materials, excellent craftsmanship, and LED lighting.

Imaginative Technology

The Lexus UX instrument panel combines unique design with intuitive technology. The 7-inch display meter digitally creates realistic looking gauges in a 3-dimensional space. The Remote Touch Interface (RTI) is designed to be used just like your smartphone with tapping and flicking. The touchpad can recognize numbers and letters when typing a search name.

Spacious Back Seat

The back seat of this vehicle can easily fit 3 people. This is perfect for a family with 3 children still at home. The seat can fold down in a 40/60 split for additional rear cargo space. There are even fold-down grocery bag hooks.

I really enjoyed driving the 2020 Lexus UX 250h around town. It seems to be designed with the urban or suburban dweller who is looking for both luxury and fuel economy.
