Toyota Venza Overview

Based on the previous-generation Highlander, the Venza is a combination of a traditional wagon and an SUV. Assets include easy cabin access, a quiet interior, and a roomy rear seat. The rear hatch and large cargo floor aid cargo flexibility. The strong 268-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine gets 20 mpg overall. Handling is secure, but the steering is short on feedback and the ride is stiff. All-wheel drive is available. The styling impairs visibility. Unless you get the optional navigation system the rear-view camera's image is relegated to a very small dashboard screen.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
