Finaly-What they Mean


Recommended Posts


Model designations-This is a topic James, our new Admin. person from the UK, got me thinking about this subject. When he "Googled" NC, it came up with the meaning of "Nimble Crossover". What the heck does that mean I thought. So I e-mailed Lexus Customer Service and received the following reply. In my opinion, some of these make sense. Such as "Luxury Sedan". But I would really appreciate someone explaining to me what a "Nimble Crossover" defines. Does it mean that other crossovers stumble and trip a lot?
