THE TREND­SET­TER

Sleek and ul­tra mod­ern at ev­ery curve, the Lexus NX is avail­able in the in-house 2-litre turbo en­gine and a 2.5-litre hy­brid en­gine. Its im­pec­ca­ble de­sign was in­spired by the idea of a car made from a soli­tary piece of metal. The Lexus NX team utilised the die of a spin­dle grille as a base, and molten steel was poured over to see how it would take shape nat­u­rally. The re­sult­ing an­gu­lar build has come to de­fine this lux­u­ri­ous com­pact SUV. For the NX 200t F Sport vari­ant, an ex­clu­sive mesh de­sign for the grille was specif­i­cally cre­ated. In ad­di­tion to that, the F Sport in­cludes a bold bumper with a metal­lic fin­ish, black outer mir­ror hous­ings, and a black-tinted panoramic glass roof. It comess in seve seven gleam­ing colours, and the F Sport is avail­able in five hues with Ex­ceed Blue Metal­lic as an ex­clu­sive op­tion. As a Lexus first, cor­ner­ing lamps in the front fog lights will il­lu­mi­nate a wide area when turn­ing, giv­ing the driver bet­ter night-time visibility.lity. Priced at RM369,000 on-the-road with­out in­sur­ance. www.lexus.com.my
