The yin to the Honda Crosstour’s yang, Toyota’s Venza enters 2013 with mildly revised exterior styling, several new standard convenience features, and a smattering of updated option packages.

Up front, the Venza’s grille is a bolder, cleaner interpretation of its original chrome arrangement. The lower inlet trades egg-crate mesh for a more traditional crosshatch pattern and is now ringed in chrome. The fog lamps remain set into the lower fascia, but now feature restyled chrome surrounds.

Three new colors—Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl, and Cosmic Gray Mica—join the Venza’s options for 2013, with a set of freshly designed 19-inch wheels rounding out the exterior updates. The V-6 equipped model comes with 20-inch, five-spoke alloys as standard.

What's the alternative fuel of the future? Electricity seems to be the preferred choice for city commuters across the country, but Toyota  thinks the future lies in hydrogen power - and now the company's released a limited number of Mirai hydrogen cars for sale in the UK.

The name 'Mirai' means future in Japanese, which should give some indication of Toyota's plans for this car. The company plans to forge ahead with alternative fuels as soon as possible. In this case it's hydrogen, which has the huge benefit of being made available at filling stations across the UK. This means that while the Mirai is driven by an electric motor, instead of a lengthy charge period you can simply top it up in a few minutes like a normal car. It's also got a far superior range to most electric cars - around 300 miles, Toyota claims.

The fuel cell itself generates electricity by mixing hydrogen with oxygen, storing it in a battery and powering the motor just like any other Toyota hybrid. That means the only emission from the tailpipe is pure water. It periodically purges H2O from the system, and there’s even a button on the dash to get rid of it when you choose – to make sure it doesn’t drop out just as you pull into the garage at home.

Toyota has built its reputation by offering inexpensive cars with a low cost-of-ownership and, usually, high safety ratings. And with the closing of the Scion brand, Toyota has added a few cars to its lineup that cater to younger buyers.

Least Expensive : The Yaris lineup is the least expensive offering at Toyota, with the two- and four-door hatchbacks plus the Mazda -sourced Yaris iA sedan all carrying base prices under $17,000.

Sportiest : As Toyota shutters the Scion brand, the brand’s FR-S has been renamed the 86 for the Toyota lineup. With a 2.0-liter flat-four engine, standard six-speed manual gearbox, and rear-wheel drive, the 86 is the most performance-oriented vehicle in the Toyota lineup.
