Active safety features with Lexus's Safety System+ greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Lexus UX include: Pre-Collision System with Brake Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Lane Departure Alert, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps points head lamps towards where the vehicle is heading, better lighting the road ahead.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
