Default 2019 Lexus UX

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/02/le...-curtain-call/



New compact CUV, going against likes of GLA, Audi Q2 and BMW X2. At the same time, also replacing the CT200h as the entry level Lexus (it is still on sale in some markets, but I doubt for too long).

All new platform (without mentioning I guess everyone knows it's TNGA), looks are typical Lexus CUV, inside and outside (interior is in the video, looks very expensive for the segment IMO); There isn't much technical info yet, but I guess it's a very close cousin to the Toyota C_Hr, so this certainly means Hybrid (you can already see a badge on the side), and a turbo petrol. I wonder if they will make an F-Sport version, as there are rumors of a quicker C-HR iwth the Yaris GRMN engine, or if we will see at least the 2.0 Turbo from the NX200t; One thing I'm certain of that there will be no Diesle version ;)

Revoltingly over wrought, like all other recent Toyotas.

Yeh, it all looks pretty awful, although Lexus have produced worse faces (faint praise I know). The rear (teased before) has some crook looking taillights to add to the design woes:

Tail lights seem to have actually a bit of a tail fin. Not sure if it is a good thing that they might return. But, like it or not, busy lines, overly sculpted flanks, huge aggressive grilles, tons of details, all which people have blamed on Lexus, are just wide spreading across many other brands, so if Lexus makes a small tail fin, I'm pretty sure the next Audi will have a taller one. And so on....

And yet it looks like a surprisingly dull version of the CHR. This is an epic mess.

Interior looks decent from the video, but my god that exterior is ugly. Is that the challenge with every new Lexus crossover? Make it worse looking that the last one?

Maybe it's b/c of repeated traumatic exposure, but I don't find this particularly overwrought compared to, say, an Avalon. I certainly don't think it looks worse than an RX (which I find really bizarre looking).

Hope Lexus makes some improvements to its infotainment, which apparently is among the worse (in terms of usability) in the industry (surprisingly for a Toyota).

Isn't it time that Lexus came up with a fresh nose?

I'm convinced that Toyota doesn't know how to photograph it's cars; the NX, RX, LC, and LS are much better looking vehicles in person; their attention to detail and very interesting surface interactions aren't accurately portrayed in Lexus manufacturer photos.

It's hugely underwhelming after the over-adventurous Concept. I do agree with 2o6, hopefully the UX looks better in person.
