Welkom aan Lexus se kleinste Sportsnuts voertuig; die UX 250. Hierdie een is ook die hibriede weergawe en kompiteer met voertuie soos die Volvo XC40, Mazda CX3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, en BMW X2. Gedurende ons onlangse toets hiermee het ons dit op die langpad, die stad, sowel as grondpaaie getoets.
Between the mad scramble for EV’s, hordes of new bakkies and a bizarre resurgence of MPV’s, this exquisitely elegant Lexus gifted us a week of peace and tranquillity.
We asked two of our journalists for their opinions on this white Lexus hybrid sedan…
Lexus lent us a small city SUV hybrid effort which is as achingly trendy as it is expensive…
Lexus gee nuwe hoop vir die koms van die “perfekte” voertuig.
Many years ago, the numbers on the back of cars actually denoted what was under the hood. A 280SE had 2.8 litres, your 528i also packed a two-point-eight and the Cressida actually spelt it out for you: 2.8i. Now though? Lexus has followed the (German) trend with this NX300…
A new car, lots of information in short paragraphs.
What you need to know: Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota and this NX, which apparently stands for “Nimble Crossover” is a mild relation of the accomplished Toyota RAV-4 compact SUV. Starting out as the NX200t around 2014 (or 2015 in southern Africa), Lexus has now changed its name to NX300. No idea why.
MORE THAN 2.3-MILLION KILOMETRES AND STILL GOING STRONG!
Hino South Africa
“Two Bar” is the fitting nickname for Namlog’s Hino 500-Series 1324 freight carrier that has covered more than 2.3-million kilometres since it was purchased new in 2009. It certainly carries its age well and does not look like a truck that has covered a distance equal to going around the earth almost 60 times!
Driving the “Predator”-faced softy
“Aggressive” is the first word that jumps to my mind as I meet the striking new, Lipstick-red, Lexus Is200t. With striking curves and the enormous ‘spindle’ front grille, the 200t is definitely not a car to miss when passing by. Should the 200t appear in your rear view mirror on the N2/ B1, I wouldn’t think twice to move into the other lane to make way.
