Influencers, elite press members and wealthy car aficionados were invited for a weekend of fun and adventure at ‘NXperience Drive’, an exclusive test-drive event starring the dynamic new Lexus NX. Held on January 27 and 28, the memorable weekend outing consisted of an eventful itinerary made just for car-enthusiasts and the scenic backdrop of beautifully mountainous Khao Yai.

The event was a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the new Lexus NX firsthand. Guests met-up on Saturday at Khao Yai's picturesque Midwinter Green restaurant, where they enjoyed a hearty meal to prepare themselves for the day's activities. Lunch was followed by a trip to the spectacular 8 speed motor track, a track that cuts through a vast plane of land flanked by stunning mountain-side views. Attendees got to take the new Lexus NX on an exhilarating spin around the winding track.

Guests got a feel of top notch safety and urban sport design for a pleasurably radical driving experience. Organised so that guests would get a feel of using the car on a real adventurous weekend-getaway, the test drive was followed by a trip down to the charming Toscana Valley, where they were treated to a thrilling bicycling activity and then had some down-time to relax and get ready for the dinner party prepared for them at Club Lago. The night ended in high spirits as guests bonded over a shared day of fun and adventure, another scrumptious meal  enjoyed together and a specially prepared live performance by May Fonpa from The Voice Thailand Season 2. 


 Guests bid each other farewell after breakfast the next day, reflecting on the memorable experience of testing the new Lexus Urban X-Over (crossover) coupled with a pleasant weekend at Khao Yai. With the Lexus NX, Lexus secures itself as a serious competitor in the luxe-SUV market. A X-Over vehicle boasting derring-do performance, reliable stability, sharp handling and a cheeky bit of extra power—all nicely packaged in one neat, smart and spacious car—the NX 300h is offered as both petrol-electric hybrid and the 2.0-litre turbo petrol model operating with two- or four-wheel drive options. In addition, the new model comes with several cutting-edge tech, including a Pre-Crash safety system, Radar Cruise Control, wireless charging tray for your smartphone and an expanded touchpad control feature with seamless design.
