Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2012 New York Auto Show in New York City.
Toyota Venza

What is it? Toyota’s five-passenger raised station wagon gets mostly cosmetic updates for the 2013 model year. Outside, the car gets a new grille, fog lamps, and revised taillights, as well as 19 inch wheels and some new paint choices. New standard features include blind spot monitors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and power driver seat across all trim lines.

What is new or notable? The Toyota Entune infotainment system, which features mobile apps and Pandora radio, is now available in Venza.

CRs take: The Venza is a somewhat anonymous raised wagon, and these updates aren’t likely to do much to raise its profile.

When will it be available?  Late Spring.
