2022 Lexus UX vs. Its Competition

2022 Lexus UX 250h
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Consider the German trio of BMW, Mercedes, and Audi, but be aware that each has its own personality.

The Q3 lands square in the middle with crowd-pleasing lines and approachable pricing.

BMW’s X1 tries to be sporty but doesn’t quite succeed.

The latest Mercedes GLA is swoopy and stylish, but not very spacious.

Our choice here is still the practical and upright—but also playful—Volvo XC40.

Don’t buy a small SUV without sampling one.

A well-equipped Mazda CX-30 undercuts luxury rivals while providing more performance and a similar features sheet, too.
