Lexus UX: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto coming in Q4

The newly arrived Lexus UX range will be available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in Australia before the end of the year, the Japanese luxury marque has confirmed. Following the debut of the smartphone mirroring technology (for Lexus in Australia, at least) with the facelifted RX sometime in the fourth quarter of 2019, the entry-level UX will be the second model in the brand’s range locally to get the feature.

Lexus 'step-up' campaign realigns SUV pricing

Lexus Australia has announced drive-away pricing across its volume-selling SUV range, along with its IS sports sedan. Having sold a record amount of crossovers during the first quarter of 2019 (2283 units to be exact, up 9.0%), the Japanese luxury brand has launched what is dubbed the 'step-up' campaign, which sees $10,000 steps between its core SUV models.

Lexus UX launching without Apple CarPlay in Australia

In a move that may seem more than a little puzzling to buyers, Lexus plans to launch its all-new UX crossover later this year in Australia without Apple CarPlay. While the company says it will begin rolling out the technology some time in 2019, it should be noted each of the UX's competitors – namely the Audi Q2, BMW X1 and X2, and the Volvo XC40 – are available with CarPlay as standard kit across the range or, in the case of BMW, in the form of an optional wireless setup.
