Toyota Windom 3·0G.jpg

Toyota Windom (MCV30L/MCV31L). 2001–6 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 2994, 3310 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Related to the Toyota Camry (XV30). No longer in the hardtop format, but instead a swoopy sedan. Wheelbase up 50 mm, as well as height; width now at 1,810 mm, noticeably increasing Windom’s bulk, moving it up one size. Very refined with a lot of soundproofing, insulation and sound absorption. Drag coefficient down to 0,28, also helping with refinement. Excellent ride, though dull to drive. Airbags included curtain shield and front seat ones, increasing occupant safety. High level of standard equipment. Three-litre V6 for home market, 3·3 available for export. Exported as Lexus ES. Minor changes in 2003, mid-term refresh in 2004. Sales sluggish in the home market, with sales falling below 100 units in 2005. Not directly replaced in the Toyota line-up, with Lexus having been launched on the home market in 2005.

Manufacturing locations: Miyawaka, Fukuoka, Japan; Susono, Shizuoka, Japan; Toyota City, Aichi, Japan
