  • Lexus UX discontinued in Malaysia, Lexus LBX to be the new entry point - want to drive the same car as Akio Toyoda's daily?

    Lexus Malaysia has discontinued the Lexus UX, currently the brand’s entry point. Checks with a Lexus dealer also revealed that there is no more stock of UX. The Lexus UX was first launched in Malaysia in February 2020. Until today, it remains the most comfortable compact luxury SUV we’ve driven. It’s also more engaging to drive than an equivalent Mercedes-Benz GLA or BMW X1.

We caught a glimpse of it at the ongoing 44th Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS 2023) and think it's one to wait for. Malaysian specifications may differ, but the kit it has is pretty rich – there's tri-LED headlights, a must-have lightbar at the back, and Lexus Safety System Plus set of advanced driv

  • Premium yet reliable, Toyota Harrier vs Lexus UX - Which is your perfect SUV?
