The Lexus UX is the entry point into the Lexus family. Imported from Japan, it competes against the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Prices start at RM 236,443 for the UX 200 Urban, topping out at RM 290,335 for the UX 200 F Sport, but this is only valid until 31-December 2021, when the current SST discount expires.
With 3 months left before the year ends, there are still some limited stocks of the Lexus UX left but to qualify for the SST discount, the vehicle must be registered before 31-December 2021.
Owning a Lexus UX is now easier than before as Lexus Malaysia has revised its Lexus Next Step financing plan.
Previously, monthly instalments for the compact luxury Lexus UX start at RM 1,938 under the 3-tier Lexus Next Step financing. Now, the entry point to the Lexus family starts at just RM 1,888 per month.
Monthly instalments for the subsequent tiers have also been cut even further, now dropping to RM 2,608 (was at RM 2,668) and RM 3,328 (was at RM 3,398) for the second (4th to 6th year) and third tier (7th to 9th year) respectively.

The Lexus Next Step financing is tailored for those who have little interest in keeping their cars long and always want to have the best and the latest.
Customers who sign up enjoy the benefit of lower monthly instalments in the first 3 years of ownership – RM 1,888 versus a traditional hire purchase’s RM 2,400.
Instalments will increase in tandem with your expected increase in income and at the end of the second tier (6th year of ownership), customers have to option to return the car to Lexus Malaysia and sign up for another Lexus.
Of course, for customers who like their car so much that they want to keep it for good, they will also have the option of buying over the car, or to continue the paying instalments into the third tier.
All three variants of the Lexus UX 200 are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated M20-FKS Dynamic Force (VVT-iE) engine paired to a CVT-type automatic transmission with a 10-speed virtual ratios (Direct-Shift CVT - the best in the industry) driving the front wheels. The engine makes 171 PS at 6,600 rpm and 205 Nm at 4,800 rpm.
It’s easily the smoothest powertrain combination in its class, with one of the most comfortable ride too.
