Toyota's surprise Venza shown to Toronto Automotive expert , Updated:
Toyota presents FJ Cruiser Trail Teams Edition, brand-new models and 2 concepts at Toronto Auto Show

The limited-edition FJ Trail Teams gets a special paint job; the body and the top are white, while the fender flares, front and rear bumper caps, mirrors, door handles and 16-inch TRD alloy wheels are dressed in black.

The standard equipment list includes trail-tuned Bilstein shocks, off-road tires, rear differential lock and A-Trac, a TRD exhaust system, skid plates and auxiliary lighting.

Inside, the Trail Teams Edition features a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, white-coloured door and instrument panel trim and a 6-CD changer with 9 speakers.

Only 3,200 copies of this special FJ Cruiser will be produced for the U.S. and Canada, and are on sale as we speak.

Toyota's stand also hosts the company's new models that have already been unveiled at the Montreal Auto Show: 2009 Matrix, 2009 Corolla and 2008 Sequoia.

Also, two of Toyota's concept vehicles are on display: the Hybrid X and the i-Real. The 5-door Hybrid X was initially launched during last year's Geneva Auto Show and hints are the styling direction that the next-generation Prius could adopt.

The i-Real is what Toyota calls a Personal Mobility Vehicle; like the Segway, the i-Real is a 1-passenger motorized cart with 3 wheels and a host of gadgets, including collision avoidance technology, and various alert systems.
