Car Profiles - Lexus NX

LEXUS NX

This is smaller than the RX in the stable but comes with a hybrid engine (for now, other variants will follow next year) in a body which is fun to drive. The environmental friendly SUV which does not need to give up driving athleticism.

The Good: Fun to drive in a guilt free package
The Bad: Expensive than a RX, which is bigger, slow acceleration

Price Range: P2,848,000-P3,908,000
