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 storage 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. Starting in 2015, a rear-view camera is standard on all trim lines. Updates include standard touch-screen radios that use a larger touch screen than our tested Venza had. This is the last year for the Venza.
