The all-new Toyota Venza AS V concept debuts at the 2008 SEMA show with active-sport modifications by Five Axis.

The sneak peeks at the show cars for SEMA continue to come our way. Toyota has released details of its Venza Active Sports Versatility (AS V), an active-sport oriented version of the upcoming Venza. Modified by Five Axis, the Venza AS V is set up to haul winter sports gear and other expensive toys.

If the styling of the all-new Venza was considered too bland and forgettable, the AS V by Five Axis should help it to stick in your head. New front and rear bumpers with aggressive fender flares and mirrors in a contrasting color bring out the Venza’s angular lines and give it a more robust appearance. Projector-style driving lights add a touch of sporty aftermarket flair. The white and bronze paint color reflects the winter-sport theme. Larger and wider 20x10.5-inch Five Axis wheels and a big-brake package from TRD are installed.

Magna Car Top Systems designed a rooftop ski and snowboard carrier, dubbed the Integrated Cargo Carrier. This stowaway rack can be used to haul bicycles and large warm-weather sports gear as well. In the cargo area there’s a purpose-built sports gear rack with a hideaway design for carrying smaller items, with protected space for messy or wet items to keep the interior pristine. At SEMA, the Venza AS V will be displayed with a snowmobile-carrying trailer hooked up, to highlight its hauling ability.

The Venza AS V will be on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas from November 4-7.
