What colour did you choose for your UX and why?

I think we are going to plump for metallic F Sport White, because it suits the sport trim and darker wheels we reckon. A nice contrast. And Flare red seats because black is too ordinary, and the new F Sport white seats look like they’ll get grubby to easily!  Sonic Titanium looks lovely too, but a bit more money.

If I was buying one I'd have the khaki green metallic. Saw one at the dealership while my NX was being serviced and it looked superb!

Thanks!  Yes, it’s certainly one of the rarest, and works especially well on the basic model imo.  It has a slightly ‘cross country’ air about it!

Here is  the full list in case it prompts some more replies.

I also like the Khaki green. Wish that was available on the NX! 

Azure blue would be my second choice.

Mine is sonic titanium. My choice was for max. brightness. Did fear it might appear "golden" but it is ok due to the small size of the car. Do not like this colour on NX or RX though. I like azure blue too but this is a f-sport colour.

Thanks, and welcome from me as a returning owner (to be)!  
 

Sonic Titanium is a beautiful colour and I was very tempted myself.

No great surprise that on the last episode of Top Gear, Chris Harris - who must pinch himself every day that such a hopeless presenter can hold down such a plum BBC job - slated the UX. 

Personally I think his criticism of the looks was just odd. At least his criticism of the eCVT gearbox was predictable, if mis-informed. I wonder if he's ever actually driven one?

I have the Khaki Green with White Ash leather interior.

This combination was my preferred choice but my wife didn't like either when she was shown them on-line. When we were haggling at the dealership I got a deal on a car because it was sitting at another dealership but I couldn't pick the colours. I hadn't revealed my preference and took the deal as it was exactly what I wanted. I was delighted as we left the showroom but my wife was disgruntled.

When the car arrived everyone thought it was stunning. I have it 3 weeks now and I'm still locked in a grin!!😁 

Apart from the colours, the size, comfort and drive are just perfect for us. It's the first car since my teenage years(now an OAP) that I've driven just for the joy of doing so. It's my first Lexus but won't be my last as we both love the car.🙂

That’s a great choice, imo.  The first one I ever saw in the showroom was that colour. However, as our current Volvo is very similar - they call it Osmium Grey - we are looking for a change.

On Lexus website and Carwow azure blue has disappeared, leaving only Celestial Blue.

Disappointing as azure blue is darker.

Azure Blue on UK spec cars is only available on the F Sport. It’s in the page I posted above from the February 2020 brochure. Were you looking at the regular UX perhaps?

Great, gives excuse to buy F sport Takumi, unfortunately they are just over the £40k premium tax level  I think, whereas standard takumi just under it. so extra £320pa for years 2-5.

I have just purchased a Takumi model.......it is over the £40k band....so caught for the higher tax.

On my reading of price list, Takumi is £39 930 so any non standard colours etc would push it over the £40k, but I may be wrong.

I got the impression that the new Premium Pro version is intended to provide most of the Takumi benefits at a lower price, though sadly the memory seats and auto folding mirrors aren’t included (which I’d like to see available lower down the range).

F sport Takumi in Fuji red, Looks metallic on the chart above, but it's not. I only went for a test drive and ended up buying the demo. 2019 car but list was £39,995 so just under the £40000 mark

I don’t envy you cleaning it, but black looks great when it’s polished!  Bummer that you can’t enjoy it.  Ours is due late June but I’m starting to think I might postpone it, unless they cannot actually deliver anyway.
