Mycarforum visits the Lexus LBX!

Getting to know the Lexus LBX was just one part of a nail biting evening of our latest Mycarforum hangout event!

Nearly two months after heading to Shaw Plaza to catch Race for Glory: Audi vs. Lancia, our Mycarforum members were once again treated to an exclusive look at Lexus' new LBX right from the firm's showroom at 33 Leng Kee Road!

Held on 9 May 2024, the event saw close to 50 attendees all getting the opportunity to get up close and personal with Lexus' first Cat A COE-eligible crossover.

For those curious, the Lexus LBX comes to Singapore equipped with a hybrid drivetrain that makes use of a 1.5-litre engine, and develops a total of 129bhp alongside a peak torque of 185Nm. These figures allow the crossover to complete the century sprint from zero to 100km/h in just 9.6 seconds.

But of course, numbers don't tell the whole story. What also matters is how a car makes you feel when you're on the road and behind the wheel. And that's exactly how Julian described his time with the crossover - after having driven the car in Valencia, Spain - to those that attended this exclusive Mycarforum hangout event!

Still, that was not all that happened that evening. Those interested in the rest of Lexus' range also got chances to test drive other self-charging hybrid models from the brand, which included the likes of the IS Hybrid, the ES Sedan, and the NX SUV.

While all this was happening, those waiting in the showroom were also engaged not just in food and drinks, but with a competition which saw them scanning a host of QR codes placed all throughout the two display units of the LBX.

Those who took part in the competition were able to answer a selection of 10 fun-fact questions regarding the Lexus LBX after scanning these QR codes, with the one answering the most number of questions correctly getting to walk away from the event with a prize valued at $1,999!

As it turned out, we did in fact underestimate the know-how of our Mycarforum members, as there was a tie between not just two, but three members in total. Competition for the prize was then settled with a tie breaker which required all to answer one final question regarding the LBX in a final, nerve-wrecking end to the evening!

  • My RC Crawler Journey: Part 1

    Have you ever found yourself mesmerised by overlanding and off-roading videos, just watching those lifted off-roaders conquering obstacle after obstacle, kicking up mud, driving through puddles, inching down steep slopes and climbing up steep gradients that seem impossible to scale? I sure did, but without the time, money and commitment to actually do it, I could only remain as a spectator behind my computer screen... This scale crawler had a ladder-frame chassis along with live-axles
