2009 Toyota Venza V6

FOR MORE ABOUT THE VENZA: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=138387?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* As soon as you see the 2009 Toyota Venza V6, you know what it is. So how come there are all these questions about whether it's a crossover, a minivan in disguise, a tall wagon or a soft-riding SUV? Really, get over it. Toyota brought it to us, not aliens from another planet. Mark Cooledge knows what it is. The 34-year-old insurance network manager from Texas is finding life a little tight in his Toyota Camry with his wife and two small children. He isn't convinced his family needs a minivan, but he wants more space, more practicality. And maybe the Venza is it. Cooledge is just the buyer Toyota was counting on when it designed the 2009 Toyota Venza, so we let him take the wheel with us so we could get past the labels and figure out what it does best.

Volkswagen Tiguan v Honda CR-V v Toyota RAV4
CHECK OUT THE CUTE-UTE SMACKDOWN: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=131851?tid=e dmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* We get it already — fuel prices suck. And while we pity the poor sod who bought a new full-size SUV a few years ago and is now stuck with a fuel bill that has doubled and a vehicle whose residual value makes manure futures look appealing, everyone wants solutions. Sympathy won't heal a hemorrhaging wallet. So what's a utility-lovin' small family to do? Downsize. Full-size SUVs provide unmatched capability but their thirst may make you reassess your needs. Think compact utility vehicle. Think crossover. This doesn't mean you have to downsize your expectations, though. The three compact SUVs we've assembled here — the brand-new 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2008 Honda CR-V and 2008 Toyota RAV4 — are based on car platforms, a strategy that helps create an efficient utilization of interior space in a relatively lightweight, fuel-efficient package. Simply put, you can pack more stuff inside these compact SUVs than you might think. And being car-based, these compact crossovers offer easier entry and exit and better driving maneuverability than truck-based ones, something you really appreciate when you're running errands around town. Of course, car-based SUVs lack the rough-road capability of their bigger brethren, and you can forget about serious towing. For everyday use, though, a compact ute just makes more sense. We tested a 2008 Honda CR-V AWD EX-L with navigation, a 2008 Toyota RAV4 4x4 Limited and a 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion. Each one represents a different take on the cute-ute concept and carry distinct strengths and weaknesses but the three turned out to be surprisingly well-matched. Indeed, when the dust settled, we had a tie for 2nd place, and just 4.2 points separate them from the winner. These are no penalty boxes either, as all three tested — the top trim level available — are equipped with all-wheel drive, stability control, leather and heated seats. Two of them have navigation systems with back-up cameras and satellite radio.





New 2009 Nissan 370Z @ 2008 LAAS
MORE ABOUT THE 370Z AND LAAS: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/losangeles/2008/2009nissan370z. html Yes, there is still a sports car in the Nissan lineup that does not have all-wheel drive, launch control or a turbocharged engine. It's now called the Nissan 370Z and unlike the big bruiser of a sports car that is the GT-R, this new Z is actually smaller than its predecessor. It's an attempt to get the iconic sports car back to its roots, and from the looks of it, Nissan has done a solid job. Fully redesigned from top to bottom, the 2009 Nissan 370Z still rides on Nissan's rear-wheel-drive, front-midship (FM) platform. It's been modified to give this Z-car a shorter 100.4-inch wheelbase (down 3.9 inches) and a shorter overall length of 167.1 inches (down 2.7 inches). The 370Z is also wider at 72.6 inches (up 1.3 inches) with wider tracks front (up a half-inch) and rear (up 1.3 inches). All that shrinkage helps this Z shed a few pounds. A base-model 370Z with a manual transmission weighs in at 3,232 pounds. That's 88 pounds less than a base-model 2008 Nissan 350Z with a manual transmission. Even the heaviest 370Z still weighs just 3,314 pounds. It's not just the smaller dimensions that make the difference. The 370Z's lighter weight is also the result of its all-aluminum door panels, hood and rear hatch. Nissan says it added a long list of structural reinforcements to the 370Z as well, but the body-in-white is still lighter than before. With less weight to pull around, the larger-displacement 3.7-liter V6 engine should make for a very quick Z. Rated at 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, the new engine is offered with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic. The manual gearbox features an optional rev-matching system that automatically blips the throttle for you while downshifting. The new seven-speed automatic will match revs on downshifts, too. Nissan also says that the programming of the automatic's torque converter makes it feel more like a manual while delivering shifts in a half second. Drive the 370Z in a less enthusiastic manner and it will return 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with either transmission. Suspension changes include a switch to a double-wishbone setup in front that utilizes forged aluminum arms and a lightweight antiroll bar. In back, the multilink setup remains, but Nissan says it's stiffer and lighter (although it doesn't give any details why). The standard wheels are 18-inch aluminum alloys with Yokohama Advan Sport tires sized 225/50R18 up front and 245/45R18 in back. A Sport package bumps the wheels up to 19-inch forged-aluminum Rays items with 245/40R19 and 275/35R19 Bridgestone Potenza RE050 tires. There are only two trim levels of the 370Z: base and Touring. The standard features list includes an eight-way manual driver seat, automatic climate control, push-button ignition and a four-speaker stereo with auxiliary steering wheel controls. Touring models add power-adjustable leather seats, a Bose audio system and Bluetooth connectivity. Navigation with an iPod connection and a Sport package are optional. Sales of the 2009 Nissan 370Z are expected to start in early 2009.

2009 Nissan 370Z Track Video
FOR THE FULL TEST: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=136547 The 2009 Nissan 370Z is lit for the cameras tonight, and the bubble of white light around it holds back the darkness of this parking lot in Los Angeles. The Z-car believers have come to see the car in its first public showing, and Randy Rodriguez is one of them. Rodriguez has come a long way to be here. Raised in British Columbia, his family ran a small gas station and car repair business and came to specialize in Nissans. His first car was a Nissan 240Z that he rebuilt with his own hands, and he's owned 10 early Zs over the years, though he's still only 31. As with all Z-car people, Rodriguez doesn't quite fit in the box where you find most car enthusiasts; he's a little out of the mainstream, a little more open to doing things differently, and a little more serious about cars in way that only someone who has had to bring old, second-hand beaters back to life can be. Rodriguez is exactly the person for whom this new Z-car is meant. Probably there's some kind of magic at work in the fact that Randy Rodriguez's day job is at Nissan Design America, and he was the one who first sketched the lines of what has become the 2009 Nissan 370Z.
