INFORMATION FROM CONSUMER REPORTS[R] FOR CANADIAN READERS
How to use the Canada Extra section
Every month, Canada Extra provides Canadian pricing and availability information about products tested for that issue. For the Annual Auto Issue of CONSUMER REPORTS though, the special Canada Extra section features prices for new cars in Canada. It also includes tips for improving your car's fuel economy, and a guide to Canadian and American sources of automotive information.

The price below includes the manufacturers' suggested retail prices, in Canadian dollars, for vehicles listed in this issue.
For most models the price range covers several trim lines (which differ mainly in their features) and body styles, but doesn't include options or a destination charge. Where only one price is listed, the vehicle is offered in only one version. "NA" indicates that the price was not announced in time to include it in this list.
For most vehicles, trim lines and specifications for the models sold in Canada closely resemble the U.S. information we detail in the vehicle profiles that begin on page 39 of this issue.
However, for some models, trim lines may be added or omitted for Canada, or the features offered for a trim line may differ somewhat from those for the U.S. version. Limited space prevents us from detailing all such differences here, but our guide to sources for vehicles sold in Canada should help. See page 48D.
For more information, contact the Registrar of Imported Vehicles (888-848-8240; www.riv.ca), the private agency appointed by Transport Canada to administer the importation of vehicles into Canada.
