Lexus Philippines has just given its smallest crossover a more stylish look. Only available on the top-of-the-line F Sport variant, the crossover gets a special exterior upgrade courtesy of a full aero kit.
Called ‘F Sport Parts’, the new exterior upgrades give the UX a bolder and more performance-oriented appearance. It consists of a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a new roof spoiler. It also comes with a special set of 18-inch alloy wheels complete with lug nuts (20 pieces) that -oddly enough- have the TRD logo.
According to Lexus, the Lexus UX F Sport with the added aero kit is aimed at improving aerodynamic performance. Moreover, Lexus also claimed that it will provide greater high-speed stability and enhance the level of control and feedback delivered to the driver.
Don’t expect to find any powertrain upgrades, however. The F Sport Parts is strictly a cosmetic upgrade - meaning the UX continues to be powered by a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four. It makes 168 PS along with 205 Nm of torque. Power is then sent to the wheels via a CVT.
Interested in getting one for yourself? The full aero kit costs PHP 500,000, pushing the price of the UX 200 F Sport from PHP 3.378 million to PHP 3.878 million.
