Alex Ng is the Director of Pick & GO, which is Singapore’s first AI unmanned convenience store. Working in tech means that Ng is aware of the small details that add ease and comfort to our daily lives, which is something that he looks out for in his choice of car as well.

“When it comes to cars, I want something that looks good and feels good,” shares the 32-year-old. “The factors I take into consideration include design, comfort, safety, and fuel efficiency. All of these I’ve found in the Lexus UX.”

The Lexus UX is Ng’s everyday car, which he loves to drive for work and leisure. He adds, “I love that it looks bold and dynamic. I also find driving it fun and easy as it is agile.” However, beneath the car’s good looks, Ng reveals that one of the more striking features of the UX would be the attention to small details.

“One thing that makes such a big difference for me is that the UX’s dashboard and controls are designed in a way that I can easily control and operate it while concentrating on the road. What’s more, the remote switch design is so convenient that I can easily switch between listening to the news on the radio to podcasts on my phone – without take my eyes off the road,” exclaims Ng.

The other factors that Ng appreciates are safety and convenience. He says, “The safety system for lane departure and pre-collision braking makes me feel safe. This gives me peace of mind whenever my wife or I are driving. What’s more, the foldable back seats allow me to transport merchandise to my stores when needed, or two foldable bicycles when I head out to cycle with friends.”

Ng admits that his days can sometimes get long and hectic, what with the traveling back and forth between his stores and the occasional meeting in between. Thankfully, the UX is able to offer a smooth and comfortable ride that minimizes any fatigue from driving.

“My family has been driving Lexus cars for quite some time now, but this is the first one I’ve owned,” says Ng. “I now understand why they’re such fans and it definitely lives up to its name, boasting comfort, refinement, and a quietness that I truly appreciate.”

Unique Integrated Rear Combination Lamps

The LED rear combination lamps have a bold design where the left and right lamps are connected by the aero-stabilizing blade lights that form a single line of light across the rear, illuminated by 120 LEDs.

Sashiko Stitching

The luxurious interior finishes exemplify the marque’s Takumi craftsmanship, with smooth leather upholstery inspired by sashiko. This traditional Japanese quilting technique also appears in Judo and Kendo martial arts uniforms.

Washi-inspired Dashboard Trim

The fine-quality grain Washi ornamentation on the dashboard is inspired by traditional Japanese sliding doors, warmly inviting and evoking comfort and relaxation within the cabin.

Wireless Charger

A wireless charger in the center console can charge mobile phones and other devices by simply placing them on the charging tray.

Agile, Superb Handling

The nimble hatchback-like handling is perfect for urban exploration with the adoption of the new GA-C platform for agile maneuverability; the lowest center of gravity among any vehicle in its class adds to superb handling.

360° Panoramic View Monitor

Exclusive to the Luxury variants, the 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor helps check areas surrounding the vehicle that are difficult to see from the driver’s seat. The system shows a bird’s-eye-view of the car in real-time on the 10.3-inch EMV display, using a composite image taken by cameras mounted on the vehicle’s front, sides, and rear.

Hands-free Power Back Door

Even with hands full, as long as someone has the Electronic Key, they can open and close the power back door automatically by moving their foot under the rear bumper and out again.

Lexus Safety System+

Standard on all new Lexus vehicles is the Lexus Safety System+ – an integrated suite of advanced safety systems designed to help in certain circumstances to ensure appropriate reactions and warnings to potentially dangerous events.

Pre-Collision System

Alerts the driver if a collision is likely to occur and activates pre-collision brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. If the driver cannot push the brake pedal, it activates the pre-collision brake to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force.

Lane Tracing Alert (LTA)

The LTA system uses forward facing camera to monitor lane markings and automatically apply steering inputs to keep the vehicle centred in its lane. While driving on highways and automobile-only roads with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control activated, it helps assist steering to keep the vehicle in the lane, reducing the burden on the driver and supporting safe driving.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Maintains a constant speed and uses the millimeter-wave radar and camera sensors to detect a vehicle driving ahead and maintain an appropriate distance between cars.

Blind Spot Monitor System & Rear Cross Traffic Alert (in Luxury variants)

The system activates a warning indicator in the relevant door mirror the moment a vehicle enters a blind spot.
