Frugality Meets Agility: 2019 Lexus UX 250h F Sport Test Drive

Last October, I traveled to Seattle, Washington to drive Lexus’s all-new UX. Its smallest utility vehicle is available with a gas engine in UX 200 form and a gas engine, battery pack, and pair of electric motor/generators as the UX 250h. Both versions can be equipped with Lexus’s popular F Sport package, which adds cosmetic and functional upgrades. During my drives through the construction zones of downtown Seattle and the natural beauty of Bainbridge Island, I discovered that Lexus had created a vehicle with the right dimensions and power to…
