KUALA LUMPUR: Bookings are now opened for the imported Lexus UX 200 compact crossover which comes in three variants, with on-the-road prices without insurance at RM243,888 (Urban); RM283,888 (Luxury) and RM299,888 (F Sport).

It is sold with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty, and aftersales support is available at seven locations across Malaysia.

All variants are front wheel drive, and powered by a 2.0-litre petrol VVT-iE intelligent variable valve-timing engine producing 169hp at 6,600rpm and 205Nm at 4,800rpm mated to a 10-speed direct-shift CVT (continuously variable transmission).

The UX 200 is billed as combining the best of attributes and versatility of an SUV (sport utillty vehicle) with the sleek and elegant styling of a hatchback.

Developed on the latest Global Architecture-C Platform that creates a more stable and dynamic chassis, highlights include its fluid lines and distinctive spindle grille, and the Lexus Safety System + (LSS+).

“It is truly a product of creative engineering by Lexus led by its first female chief engineer. It is beautifully styled in the spirit of Engawa (Japanese traditional architecture seamlessly to connect inside with the outside). It also includes high-end Japanese design elements as Sashiko upholstery (Japanese stitching technique). The UX is the first Lexus model to offer a new trim grain finish that’s inspired by the grain of Japanese paper know as Washi, familiar in traditional Japanese home,” said Lexus Malaysia deputy chairman Akio Takeyama.
