The Taiwanese company Luxgen is going through hard times, while a new model, the URX crossover, is called to save the situation. Interestingly, the car’s name is an abbreviation for “Utility Recreation X”, which can be translated as “utilitarian and entertainment crossover.”
According to Luxgen experts, the URX is a cross between a classic SUV and a compact van. The crossover differs from other models of the brand with a new design of the front end, where a radiator grill with a concentric pattern and two-story LED optics are installed on the car.
The salon of the new Luxgen URX 2020 turned out to be quite spacious, while for a surcharge it is possible to order the third row of seats. The Taiwanese paid great attention to ergonomics, so in the cockpit of the model you can find many niches and pockets for small things.
Plus, the car flaunts a well-thought-out interior transformation system. The chairs of the second and third rows can be folded into a flat floor here, and the separate sofa on the second row can be moved forward / backward in the range of 80 mm. The backrests of this sofa can be tilted. Plus, they have a remote folding function.
Interestingly, Luxgen URX lacks a dashboard, but there is a vertically located 12.0-inch display of the multimedia system, which displays the instrument readings. In addition, some minor functions (for example, climate control) can be controlled from this monitor. The base also has a head-up display and voice control.
In terms of dimensions, the 2020 Luxgen URX reaches a length of 4,740 mm, and its height is 1,760 mm. The car is driven by a 1.8-liter turbo engine, developed in collaboration with the French from Le Moteur Moderne. This unit develops 202 hp. (300 Nm), and it works in tandem with a six-speed automatic Aisin, transferring traction to the wheels of the front axle.
As for the equipment, the Laxjin URX boasts the presence of all-round cameras, climate control, “leather” interior, a panoramic roof and an electric fifth door. Of the electronic assistants available for the model, it is worth noting the adaptive cruise control, the lane tracking system and the automatic braking function.
Sales of the new model in the home market will start at the end of two thousand nineteen, and in the first half of 2020, the crossover will reach China. There is no information about the price, just as nothing is reported about the prospects for the appearance of cars in the markets of other countries.
