Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of both the 10 year and 6 year dummies was ADEQUATE, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions was GOOD.

Protection of both child dummies in the side impact test was GOOD with maximum points scored.

The Lexus UX is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions. Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Lexus UX provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with POOR results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars. The protection offered to the pelvis was GOOD to MARGINAL, while the bumper provided GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs at all test locations.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system showed GOOD performance in pedestrian test scenarios, in both daylight and low light, earning full points. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most scenarios.
