New 2021 LEXUS UX HYBRID F SPORT
03 December 2021 | Business
It’s designed for modern urban motorists who seek a fresh, contemporary and dynamic take on luxury driving, something that is not just new and exciting, but also relevant to their lifestyles, and for many young urban explorers, it will most likely be their very first Lexus. Infused with dynamic attitude, the UX is engineered to deliver quick and engaging driving with a Lexus-smooth demeanour, making it a unique entry in the luxury compact SUV market.
To recap, Lexus in South Africa is now available in hybrid only, once again taking another confident step on the path to Carbon Neutral by further lowering fuel emissions and providing a realistic entry to electrified motoring.
Lexus South Africa introduced the EX-grade hybrid model in June last year. Fast forward to 2021, the brand is excited to launch the F Sport model grade for UX hybrid. This brings the total range to three grades: namely Lexus UX 250h EX, UX 250h SE and now the newly-minted UX 250h F Sport.
Like its siblings, the front-wheel drive Lexus UX 250h F Sport boasts superior performance thanks to fourth-generation self-charging hybrid powertrain technology which provides exhilarating driving with high-speed responsiveness and a feeling of smooth, natural acceleration.
The 2.0-litre petrol engine alone delivers 107kW of power at 6000rpm and 180Nm of torque at 4400rpm, but when combined with the electric motor, provides a total system output of 135kW.
This equates to a very laudable 0-100km/h sprint time of 8.5 seconds. Fuel economy though is a real eye-opener returning figures of 4.5-litres/100km combined and CO2 emissions of just 103g/km.-MotorPress
