New 2023 Lexus UX250h Hybrid-Efficient FWD Model!

2023 Lexus UX250h Hybrid – Overview

Lexus is now stating that there will be a new front-wheel-drive version of the UX250h, which it previously said would only be available in the 2023 UX lineup.

Here are the major highlights:

  • By 2023, Lexus will release a new front-wheel-drive UX250h model.
  • Due to the discontinuation of the gas-only UX200, the UX is currently only available as a hybrid.
  • This month, the 2023 UX will debut in the US with a starting price of $35,850.

(The hybrid initially came standard with all-wheel drive.)
As a result of this modification, the UX250h is now more affordable and effective.

It has a starting price of $35,850 and an EPA combined rating of 42 mpg, compared to the AWD model’s rating of 39 mpg.

Except for the third electric motor that drives the rear wheels, the FWD UX250h‘s powertrain is identical to the AWD version.

Both models have a 2.0-litre inline-four gasoline engine that makes 181 horsepower in total.

All-wheel drive is a $1400 option available on the Premium ($38,310) and two F Sport models.

In addition, the F Sport Handling variant ($43,280) has adaptive dampers, other suspension improvements, sports seats, and a new steering wheel.

In contrast, the F Sport Appearance ($38,310) only has cosmetic changes.

The hybrid is still not nearly as affordable as the UX200 model, which was discontinued and had a 2.0-litre inline-four with 169 horsepower and a continuously variable automatic transmission.

Moreover, the introductory price of the UX increased by $1325 for the new model year since that version had a starting price of $34,525.

However, both versions take an unacceptably slow 8.6 seconds to reach 60 mph.

A larger infotainment screen, a rearranged centre console, and some new connectivity options are among the other changes for 2023.

Additionally, Lexus claims to have installed run-flat tires and increased structural rigidity.

This month, the 2023 Lexus UX250h Hybrid will start to be sold.
