Universal appeal for unveiled Lexus NX: the Mehtas


Ahead of the new Lexus NX going on sale in October 2014, Lexus invited a group of prospective owners to its headquarters in Surrey to witness the unveiling of the exciting premium compact crossover.

The NX has a strong visual appeal with sharp, highly-defined styling and a specification that includes cutting-edge onboard technologies, as well as being powered by a full hybrid powertrain in the NX 300h and a turbocharged petrol engine in the NX 200t (due in spring 2015).

But enough of us telling you how great it is – let’s find out from the people who will be driving an NX in the near future. We got the impressions of the Mehta family, who come to Lexus after 25 years of owning Volkswagens.

Talking about the NX 300h with its Lexus Hybrid Drive system, father Nilesh Mehta said: “It will be quite nice to look at a hybrid car now, purely because you want to do your bit for the world.”

The Mehta’s son, Keshav, was impressed by the NX’s looks: “Aesthetically it’s definitely a very attractive car…I’m kind of hoping that my dad is going to give me more lessons in driving!”

  1. I have had several RX350 and looking to replace my current model. I am looking at the NX, though am not sure if I could handle the smaller size, though I am the only driver! The NX looks smart, attractive, fuel efficient and up to the Lexus standards that I appreciate. Thank you for being continually on the forefront of technology, comfort and safety standards!

    1. Hi Marilyn
      Thanks for your post.
      We appreciate your comments and the best option here would be for you to take a test drive at your local Lexus dealer. As you correctly point out the NX is smaller than an RX so you would need to double check it is suitable to meet your needs. Let us know how get on once you have had a drive!
