Luxgen URX is the Taiwanese carmaker’s notion of luxury car
Car manufacturing company Luxgen was founded 10 years ago, but never had much success selling its vehicles. Its newest SUV, called the URX, should attempt to remedy the situation.
According to the automaker, the abbreviation stands for ‘Utility Recreation Crossover’. The car packs an infotainment system with voice control support and a Tesla-style 12-inch display with the instrument cluster and virtually all the necessary controls on it.
The Luxgen URX boasts a leather-draped interior, climate control, AEB, adaptive cruise control, lane control, panoramic glass roof, all-around view cameras, and electric tailgate. A third seat row is a paid option.
Powering the vehicle is a purpose-built 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which has been developed in collaboration with French engine designer Le Moteur Moderne. The mill sends up to 202 hp (152 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque to the front wheels through an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission.
The Luxgen URX should come out in Taiwan later this year.
