My boys have certainly grown up.
I’m not a car person, but when my boys—Ben (13), Markus (12), Jeroen (42)—found out that we would get to use a Lexus SUV Hybrid for a week, they were excited.
The Qi Wireless Charging Tray came in handy when we were on our way to Shangri-La Mall and my phone was running low on power. All I had to do was put my phone on the tray to fully charge it. No need for cables at all.
Most of all, what the boys loved was the panoramic sunroof, especially when we were on our way to Estancia Mall as they enjoyed watching the rain fall on it. Can imagine how energizing it must be to have sunshine come through it as well.
We found the safety features very thoughtful for families: eight airbags, full LED headlights, 360-degree monitor and more. The 360-degree monitor is extremely useful to any driver, regardless of skill level. Find out more about the NX’s cool features here.
The Lexus Hybrid NX300h has a four-cylinder engine, electric motors and automatic transmission. The seats are comfortable for four people, but (let’s be honest) not for a tall person.
Since the NX300h is a hybrid, we were concerned about charging the car. I mean where are the charging stations in the Philippines? To our amazement, the NX charges its own battery whenever the driver steps on the brake.
Lexus Hybrid Drive is known as a full hybrid system, which means that its two power sources—a battery-powered electric motor and a petrol-driven combustion engine—are separate from one another. Lexus Hybrids run on Normal, Eco, and Sport modes but the NX 300h adds the “EV” mode that keeps it running on electricity at speeds below about 30 mph as long as the battery holds out.
We loved how smooth the Lexus Hybrid NX300h ran and how quiet the engine was. As for the boys, they were quite sad when it was time to return the car. Can’t even begin to tell you about the drama that ensued. I guess Lexus love really runs through their veins.
