2004 Lexus RX 330
Full-time all-wheel drive (front-wheel-drive is no longer an option), Steering wheel and passenger multi-stage frontal airbags and knee bag for the driver. The side-impact airbags, standard, are large, protecting the torso, abdomen and hips, heated leather seats, electrochromic (auto-dimming) side mirrors, auto up/down windows, five-speed automatic transmission, eight-speaker premium audio system with steering wheel controls, power tilt and telescope steering, roof-mounted spoiler, 17-inch alloy wheels and, of course, antilock brakes and power just-about everything else.
Leather on the seats (on most models) is soft and slightly bunched, and there are splashes of real wood trim on the doors and center console. The instrument panel has three large round gauges trimmed in silver. The center dash area, or stack, is framed in metal-looking plastic.
Climate controls are located high on the center stack and to either side of an LCD screen used to control ventilation, audio, trip computer, outside temperature and clock (with alarm). The screen is also used for the optional navigation system as well as the rear-view camera that comes with it. The camera works automatically when the transmission is shifted into reverse. Big outside mirrors afford a good view rearward.
