Lexus is on a big pay-role as the Toyota`s subsidiary is preparing the 2015 NX200t to be shipped to Australia, where the entry-level model will come available at 52,500 AUD. A whole lot of features will be fitted on this version, especially inside.
I am talking here about gizmos like Bluetooth connectivity, USB, satellite navigation, rearview camera, parking sensors, the drive mode select with modes like Eco, Normal, Sport, parking brake and more.
In case you want to have something more agile, just order the 2015 NX200t F Sport, which will be tweaked with additional features on the body, like the high-performance bumpers, fresh bumpers and grills, while inside, the model is coming with the blind sport monitor with rear cross traffic alert, active sound control, the F Sport pedals, the 10-way power seats, with heating and cooling and a few more.
I am not much of a Hyundai fan, but I have to admit that there are models worth talking about, like the 2015 Genesis one, which stroke me with its appealing and high-end design, as well as the features it comes with inside and the performance under the hood.
When I first saw the model, I was that close of mistaking it with a Mercedes-Benz, as the long elongated headlights give the model a premium style, along with other body parts.
And now, the Brits also get to enjoy the new Genesis and even take it home, from an entry-level of 47,995 GBP. Definitely quite much for a Hyundai, but we are talking about a high-end model.
