Redesigned last year, among the many improvements to Lexus' midsize "crossover" sport-utility vehicle was a larger 3.3-liter V-6 engine, which prompted an update to the RX330 designation. This powerplant delivers a smooth 230 horsepower and drives either the front or all four wheels via a five-speed-automatic transmission. Larger than the version it replaced, with a more-aerodynamic exterior that's free of body cladding, the RX330 is both handsome and capable over a wide range of conditions (though its car-based underpinnings limit the vehicle's off-road abilities). Four-wheel-disc anti-lock power brakes with brake assist, and both stability and traction control are standard, along with front side, side curtain, and driver's-side knee airbags. An available adaptive lighting system aims the headlights in the direction of a curve for better visibility at night. A navigation system, laser-guided cruise control, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and a Mark Levinson premium audio system are optional. Minor changes only are in the works for 2005.

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.
