Lexus Philippines has just announced that an updated version of its UX subcompact crossover is now available in the country. Like its stablemate, Toyota, the Japanese marque is determined to provide more environmentally friendly options for our market. In line with that, the UX now comes in two variants—both of which run on hybrid power.

These hybrid crossovers run on a self-charging setup that features a 2.0-liter gasoline engine, a hybrid transaxle, a compact battery, and a power control unit which combine for a total output of 181hp. The powertrain delivers power to the front wheels via a CVT.
The updated UX also now gets Lexus Safety Sense features as standard. The suite includes dynamic radar cruise control, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist with lane departure alert and steering assist, lane trace assist, and intelligent high-beam headlamps. The UX also gets adaptive variable suspension, LED headlamps with daytime running lights, and a power tailgate with a kick sensor.
Inside, there’s an eight-inch infotainment screen equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This is paired to a 10-speaker sound system.
