Lexus sculptures a new iteration of its stylish UX crossover, injecting the compact canvas with a more potent electrified heart. As the debut recipient of Lexus’ fifth-generation hybrid system, the 2025 UX 300h now harmonizes a 2.0-liter inline-four with twin motor-generators, mustering up to 196 cumulative horses with enhanced responsiveness. Lexus augments the new powertrain with a lightweight lithium-ion battery in place of nickel-hydride cells, plus a reimagined hybrid transaxle enabling beefier output from the torque-vectoring e-motors.

This electrified evolution empowers a manufacturer-estimated 0-60 time of 7.9 seconds for AWD models, while fuel economy remains exemplary. Lexus’ E-Four all-wheel drive further broadens capability, dispatching instantaneous torque to empower traction when needed. The UX 300h’s identity also shimmers with new exterior intricacies like the Copper Crest hue, revised cabin trims, and a standard 12.3-inch display granting Premium and F Sport grades a customizable digital canvas.

But beyond these judicious enhancements, the UXh’s essential ethos persists—melding crossover practicality with sedan-like engagement; wrapping occupants in urbane amenities, from cutting-edge safety systems to heated/ventilated NuLuxe seats; and telegraphing Lexus’ distinctive design language through details like the spindle grille and blade-like taillights. For 2025, Lexus hones an electrified crossover that’s already struck a chord with discerning urban adventurers seeking substance and style.
