Lexus UX 250h: What’s changed for 2022?

Following its launch in 2019, the Lexus UX rapidly became our best-selling model in Europe, with its urban twist on the luxury crossover theme resonating with more than 50,000 new car buyers. In order to make the hybrid Lexus UX 250h more alluring than ever, a number of exterior and interior refinements have been applied for the 2022 model year.

Lexus UX 250h: exterior changes for 2022

New for 2022 is the introduction of Sonic Titanium (as seen in these images) into the body colour palette. This special metallic paintwork is designed to accentuate the athletic lines and elegant curves that characterise the shape of the Lexus UX 250h.

This becomes all the more noticeable on F Sport and Takumi grade versions of the Lexus UX 250h, where the aerodynamically efficient wheel arch trims are now presented in the same colour as the rest of the body. This change brings a sleeker, more sophisticated overall appearance for these high-spec models.

Interior change for 2022

Inside the meticulously crafted cabin of the Lexus UX, the skill of Lexus ‘Takumi’ artisans is evident in the new White Ash Tahara (see below) leather-effect fabric option for Takumi grade models. This man-made material also uses elegant bronze stitching to create a distinctive contrasting element.

  1. I would suggest
    Hill hold should not need re setting everytime i start the ignition
    Select once and then done

    Should include auto closing wing mirrors

    Hill start assist why would this be in addition to hand break ?
    Again i have to select each time i start ignition

    The AC switch what a nightmare just give me a press button on and off

    Add more push buttons to dash screen yaris far ahead of my UX in this

    You have made a great car but the tech user interface is poor guys

    Please dont reply this is UK spec or you will pass on to the team
    Get them to contact me a real customer direct and keys really put consistent development and customer feedback into lexus culture and not a cheap buzzword

    1. Hello Ady,
      Thank you for your feedback.
      Our Lexus Customer Service team can be contacted on 0345 129 5484.
      Please let us know if we can assist you further.

  2. I already have a Sonic Titanium UX 250 Takumi so it is not a new 2022 colour! I also agree with Rich, the colour range is dreary, greys, black, silver – let’s have a Mesa Red one!

  3. The addition of a towbar should not stop the tailgate kick to open system from working, why would Lexus do this ???

    1. Hello Robert,
      Unfortunately, this is due to a technical reason.
      We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

      1. Why should I have to pay for Lexus to make Technical Mistakes with the design of the car. I think I will have to take this further with Lexus Technical UK .

  4. Biggest pain for me is only being able to store 6 faves in the DAB Radio. It’s such a faff to have to go and search for others that I listen to regularly. Surely it’s not too hard to just have a long fave list across the different types.

  5. I have ordered an F-Sport with the Premium Plus Pack and looking at around April/May for delivery.
    I do agree that the auto folding mirrors should be standard, seems an odd thing to leave off especially at the prices we pay.
    Not sure on the comments around colour as they have red, blue, burnt orange and green, along with the usual white, black and greys.
    The wife wanted it in Grey and I must admit the colour coded wheel arches makes it look much better.
    Can’t wait to own the car and hopefully it doesn’t have the same issues as I have had with my 70 plate C-HR.

    1. Hello Jason,
      Thank you for your order, we are sure your UX will not disappoint.
      Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further assistance.

  6. Hi,
    When will you add the new informaint system to UX similar to NX?
    I am waiting for that to be added to UX so that I order it.


  7. Hi. I have the 2019 UX basic model that I bought for way too much $42k ish. Was hoping the new model would have some needed changes, but from what I can see only the outer color and interior colors have been added, also seems the center console is slightly tilted.

    Annoying things with the 2019 I was hoping would change:
    – using the AC… like another commenter made ~ “what a nightmare” we have yo go into the screen settings to turn off/on… all while we are driving. A simple button is all I ask for.
    – the cup holders being right in front of all the buttons. I have to keep moving the water bottles to turn on the seat warmers or playing with the heat/cool settings.
    – whenever something spills on the seats, it’s meaty impossible to completely clean as it gets stuck in the little holes on the seat style.
    – no seat memory options, so I can’t let anyone drive the car… as getting the seat back to my normal setting is a pain.
    – why don’t the side mirrors go in when we lock the doors?
    – the car horn is so weak. I feel like a little baby using it and letting others hear it’s weak horn. I need a more masculine “get out of my way” horn, so people k is I’m serious.

    That’s all my complaints, for now. There are many things I do like about the car too, but since we’re here to help make a better car with better features, I’ll stick with just telling you about the flaws.

    Thank you and have a nice day 🙂
