Lexus UX Front seats
Simulation technology was used to analyze and optimize the seat’s shape, resulting in the development of a well-tailored seat befitting a LEXUS. A deep-suspension structure draws the seat cover in deeply. The tension of the seat cover when seated is absorbed by the deeply suspended area, which reduces the feeling of tightness and improves cushioning by decreasing the concentration of pressure on the buttocks.
In addition, seats for the F-SPORT utilize Toyota Boshoku’s integrated Form in Place Method. Adopting a similar cross-sectional shape and structure to the LEXUS LC seats has resulted in greatly improved hold performance. The new seats are ideally suited to the performance of the F-SPORT.

The Lexus UX 2021 rear seats are equipped with a dual-position seatback lock mechanism that significantly reduces the number of parts and weight, thereby contributing to improved fuel economy. In addition, the newly developed electric retraction/return mechanism for the rear seats increases convenience by reducing operation time by more than 30% compared to the conventional.
There are three control switches to expand the luggage space: 1. a soft switch in the touch display, 2. a switch in the luggage compartment, and 3. a switch on the side of the rear seat*2, all of which can be used to electrically retract or return the seat. The shoulder lever can also be used to manually retract and return.
