The Lexus UX is a newish addition to the company’s lineup. Introduced in the 2018 model year, the crossover compact SUV has all the luxury of this brand along with the performance associated with its category. Of the six trims available, we’re comparing two of the more sportier styles. These are the 2020 Lexus 200 F Sport and the 2020 Lexus UX 250h F Sport.
For a drivetrain, the 200 F Sport is equipped with a front-wheel setup. The 250h F Sport comes equipped with all-wheel-drive.
Another difference is in the powertrain. The 200 F Sport has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder in-line fuel engine that gets 169 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. The 250h F Sport is a hybrid vehicle. Along with a similar fuel-powered engine, there’s an electric motor under the hood. Together, these generate a total of 181 horsepower.
The inclusion of a hybrid setup increases the fuel economy of the 250h. Combined, it gets close to 40 miles per gallon. The 200 F Sport has a combined mileage of 33 in the city and on the highway.
Exterior features on both trims are the same. 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels support all-season tires that run flat. LED fog lamps and cornering lights provide day and nighttime illumination. Sensors built into the body of both trims detect environment and traffic sounds. In turn, these noises are reduced before they reach the interior cabin.
There are other similarities, as well. One of these is side-view mirrors with heated elements and turn signal indicators. These mirrors are also electrochromic. In other words, they darken and lighten depending on light, heat, and other factors.
Other than the all-wheel-drive as mentioned above and hybrid motor, the UX 250h F Sport has the same features as the UX 200 F Sport. Inside the SUV, drivers will discover multi-adjustable power seats in the first row, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an electrochromic rear-view mirror.
On the technology front, the six-speaker audio system allows SUV occupants to listen to Sirius XM radio, standard on both trims. Or, they can stream music after Bluetooth integration. These items, as well as hands-free phone calls, are done via voice command recognition.
Safety-wise, both of these trims received five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the highest a vehicle can get. It also features front and knee airbags for first row occupants and additional deployments for second-row passengers.
Overall, either trim would be the right one for consumers. With the same exterior and interior features, both the 2020 Lexus UX 200 F Sport and 2020 Lexus UX 250h F Sport match up. The main difference is in the 250h’s powertrain and drivetrain.
