Ms. Lilian Bleakley bought her Lexus NX Hybrid in mid-2018 to be her all-around car. As a young mother, she leads an active life taking her twin boys around, running everyday errands, and even doing her business on the side as Thermomix adviser.
“What attracted me to Lexus were the safety features,” Lilian says. “It is also an all-wheel-drive, but an easy one to handle, and it has a dynamic design.”
Last but not least, she adds, the car has a hybrid system that runs on a combination of a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and electric power. The main advantage of this system is that it consumes less fuel and emits less carbon dioxide than a conventional petrol engine car. “I chose the NX hybrid model, as opposed to one that runs on gasoline, because it is environment friendly and fuel-efficient” she explains. “My husband and I can tell all our children someday that we did our part in reducing carbon emission.” She also said that getting to use the green lots at some of the malls is also a welcome convenience.
Lilian describes herself as a relaxed and cautious driver, which helps as she is on the road a lot. “I drive this car every day, and I take it everywhere. But I love driving to the airport most because my twin boys like to look up through the panoramic glass roof and watch as airplanes zoom past us overhead.”
With a wide range of convenient features, the NX Hybrid leaves Lilian with little to ask for. “My NX has keyless access, a hands-free power backdoor, and power-folding rear seats. It also has a blind spot monitor that alerts me when I come close to another moving vehicle.” Even when maneuvering in tight spaces, especially when parking, it becomes effortless. “When I do, the parking assist feature helps ease me into the space,” she boasts.
“What do I like best about this car? It’s hard for me to choose one — because I appreciate all the thoughtful details that were put into building this car. The front row seats can be cooled on sunny days, while the spacious boot allows me to transport bulky items and deliver goods to my customers.
“If I must really choose one, I would say that I love how it looks. But if I were to recommend this car to family and friends, I would naturally highlight the ease of use, the fuel efficiency, and of course, the eight airbags.”
