2021 Lexus UX Hybrid for Sale in West Springfield, MA
With so many sought-after attributes, the 2021 UX Hybrid truly stands out in the hybrid subcompact crossover class. Some of its highlights include class-leading fuel economy (39 mpg combined city/highway), an advanced slate of technology that consists of an available 10.3-inch high-resolution split-screen multimedia display, and superior craftsmanship that deftly unites sophisticated Japanese aesthetics with modern luxury. For model year 2021, the UX Hybrid, or UX 250h, gets a redesigned cargo area that adds almost 5 cubic feet over the outgoing version, for a total of 21.7 cubic feet of space. Its safety factor is higher, too, now that blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is standard across the board. The limited-run (just 1,000 units) Black Line Special Edition has also entered the trim lineup.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Lexus UX 250h is a subcompact two-row crossover sold in four trim levels: Base, F Sport, Luxury, and Black Line Special Edition. Their powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a permanent-magnet electric motor working with an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT). The total system output is 181 hp. All trims have a standard all-wheel drivetrain and return 41 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway (according to the EPA’s official ratings).
Standard and Optional Features
The 2021 UX 250h’s base trim is generously outfitted with 18-inch wheels, roof rails, LED headlights and taillights, heated side mirrors, keyless entry, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control with cabin air filter, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, four USB ports, an electronic parking brake, and a Lexus Enform Wi-Fi hotspot. The optional Premium Package will issue rain-sensing wipers, a moonroof, elegant Washi interior trim, and heated and ventilated front seats. Individual options include auto-leveling headlights, a windshield wiper de-icer, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, a wireless smartphone charger, a head-up display, and intuitive parking assist with automatic braking.
The F Sport is all about performance, adding unique wheels and exterior trim, bolstered front seats, a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, aluminum pedals and front sill plates, LED fog lights, a sport-tuned suspension, active sound control, and an upgraded digital gauge cluster. It’s eligible for a Luxury Package that will supply the contents of the aforementioned Premium Package plus position memory for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, and enhanced side mirrors with reverse tilt-down and driver’s side auto-dimming.
The loaded Luxury trim is set up for touring, and so it doesn’t have all of the F Sport’s track-inspired elements. The contents of the Luxury Package come standard, though, along with acoustic front side glass and illuminated air vent knobs. Any remaining features mentioned as a la carte options above are still optional. Those who were lucky enough to get the similarly equipped Black Line Special Edition will also enjoy blacked-out interior and exterior trim and exclusive Zero Halliburton travel cases with Lexus badging.
Safety and Technology
Along with fuel efficiency, the UX 250h prioritizes occupant safety. All trims get the Lexus Safety System +2.0 suite, which consists of a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane tracing assist, lane departure alert with steering assist, road sign assist, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and intelligent high beams. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is also standard on all trims.
Today’s most desirable connectivity features are abundant in the UX 250 Hybrid. Each trim has an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a six-speaker sound system. The available upgrades include a 10.3-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation, and a super-premium eight-speaker audio system.
