Unlike many, and not like any of the vehicles I’ve driven, the NX300h is very unique, being a hybrid – supported by a 2.5 litre Akinson cycle petrol engine as well as a high output electric motor. So not only does this compact SUV boast luxury, elegance and style – it’s also intelligent and minimises fuel consumption and its effect on the environment. Beauty, brains and substance!
There are so many other features about the new NX that I love – its convenient size, luxe leather interior and overall design. Those aside, it’s also high on safety and has all the creature comforts you need for a great ride. It drives beautifully and the engine is so quiet you forget you’ve already push-started – and it’s happened to me a lot when firing the engine! The ride is so smooth, the smoothest I’ve ever experienced, thanks to its hybrid technology.
Huge thanks to Lexus – I’ve loved driving this beauty!
