The Toyota-Camry-based ES330 continues for 2005 with freshened exterior and interior styling. Cosmetic updates include a redesigned front grille that now incorporates horizontal bars and revised head- and taillamps. Interior changes are subtle, with new color combinations offered and a choice of either Burled Walnut and Golden Bird's Eye Maple wood trim on the dashboard, center console, and doors. In addition, a new steering wheel includes integrated audio and central-display controls, voice activation features are added to the ES330's optional navigation system, and the car's audio system now offers satellite radio compatibility. Last year, Lexus' entry-level front-drive midsize sedan got a boost in power, thanks to its 225-horsepower 3.3-liter V-6 engine, which prompted the upgrade to the designation ES330. A five-speed-automatic transmission is standard, along with anti-lock brakes, front side airbags, traction control, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, an AM/FM-cassette/CD stereo, power heated mirrors, moonroof, and seats, and keyless entry. Vehicle Skid Control, an adaptive suspension, and ventilated seats are optional.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
