2025 UX 300h Brings More Power to the Streets

Hybrid crossover builds toward Lexus’ goal of carbon neutrality…

A new powertrain has arrived for the 2025 Lexus UX 300h, giving the versatile compact crossover 196 total system horsepower.

A new hybrid transaxle and lightweight lithium-ion battery contribute to the higher output, providing the UX 300h with more responsive performance. Infused with dynamic attitude, the crossover is engineered to deliver quick and engaging driving with a Lexus-smooth demeanor, the company stated.

The 2025 model year also sees updated technology and safety features, and Copper Crest has been added as an exterior color option.

Only offered with a hybrid powertrain in the U.S., the 2025 UX 300h supports Lexus’ work toward the realization of a carbon-neutral society, officials added.

For 2025, shift-by-wire technology has also been introduced on the UXh, converting shift operations into electrical signals. With no mechanical connections, the setup helps enable a quicker and more seamless shifting experience.

The 2025 UXh boasts an improved manufacturer-estimated 0-60 acceleration time of 7.9 seconds (AWD) and 8.0 seconds (FWD).

The vehicle can be equipped with E-Four, Lexus’ innovative all-wheel drive system that places a permanent synchronous motor at the rear axle for near-instantaneous drive force application in low-grip or acceleration scenarios.

The crossover also features a host of updates including exterior design and aerodynamics enhancements, a high-strength global architecture platform, MacPherson strut front suspension and trailing arm double-wishbone-type rear suspension, Active Cornering Assist (ACA) and Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.
