Every 2021 Lexus UX has 10 airbags, including knee airbags for both front occupants, as well as front-side airbags. Naturally, the usual mandatory safety features like traction control/stability control and anti-lock brakes are included. And the rearview camera has helpful grid lines. The Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 is a set of advanced driver aids that comes standard across the entire 2021 UX range. It includes forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian/cyclist detection, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert,
adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assistance, lane-keeping assistance, road sign recognition and automatic high beams. In crash testing carried out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the UX received the highest score of five stars overall, four stars apiece in the front crash and rollover tests, and five stars for side impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the UX its highest score of Good in every major category. But the standard LED headlights took a rating of Poor. When fitted with the upgraded triple-beam LED headlights, the UX is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
