I have good reason to that my boss, Tara, is a Tara insists that I reviews that are funny and and then assigns me the un-funniest on the face of the planet. I am sure if we worked for a news publication, she assign me all the missing children with her usual admonishment to it up a bit, sweetie.#8221;

Case in The Toyota Venza. There is nothing funny or entertaining it. Sure, the design is unusual, elements of an SUV and a wagon, but handsome as it is, I can poke fun at it. Stem to stern, the Venza is an exceptionally well-designed if a bit pricey, and in any other circumstances I write a straight-up review its virtues and encouraging you to put it on your list.

Except I can#8217;t, because will fire me, and I have a to feed. So let#8217;s dive in and try to the humor in this seriously vehicle.


I’m sure when Toyota’s executives saw the Toyota Venza’s interior, might have thought it was the designers who were joking. The was one of the first vehicles to break out of conservative mold, and details the elephant-skin texture on the dash and trim have since to other Toyotas. I happen to the look, since Toyota’s values are intact: Most of the are simple and straightforward (although the new display stereo has a bit of a learning and the whole thing feels as constructed as a … shelter.

The front seats are comfortable and the are excellent. And if you want storage the Venza is your car: got a closet-sized center console bin that will swallow purses and, if you’re not small children.


The Venza is one of the few utility vehicles not for families — it#8217;s intended for which is why you#8217;ll find features like low door that make it easy to get in and That said, my kids the roomy back seat its reclining backrest, the plethora of cubbies, and the optional dual-pane which makes for great

Cargo capacity is 34.4 feet, slightly less Toyota#8217;s family-targeted Highlander. more? Give a light tug on a car-door-like handle near the tailgate, and the seatbacks drop all by themselves.



The Toyota Venza comes the requisite six airbags plus a one for the driver#8217;s knee, an important that can prevent some nasty leg injuries in a crash. The Toyota Venza aced the Institute for Highway Safety#8217;s side, rear and roof-crush earning it a Best Safety award. But if you#8217;re looking for safety features like spot or lane-departure warning, out of luck — the Venza doesn#8217;t them.


For 2013, the canbe had with Toyota#8217;s multimedia stereo system, allows you to plug in your phone and open up a world of apps. You can plan an entire right from the Venza#8217;s seats: Search for a restaurant Bing, make reservations OpenTable, buy flix tix with and use navigation system#8217;s real-time and weather services to find the route. You can even play romantic music for the ride using Pandora or iHeartRadio. you make it home and upstairs, you#8217;re on your own.)


Opening the of my test Venza revealed a engine. Talk about a of humor! Four cylinders to around nearly two tons of Now that#8217;s funny. But Toyota the last laugh: The engine is a 2.7 liters and puts out 182 horsepower as it turns out, has more enough power to hustle a Venza up steep hills at speeds.

There is a V6 available — 3.5 and 268 horsepower — but the Venza really need it.

With that in mind, EPA fuel economy figures are close for both engines. 2013 Toyota Venzas are at 21 MPG city/27 highway with the engine and 19/26 with the V6; all-wheel-drive it#8217;s 20/25 for the and 18/25 for the V6. I drove a front-wheel-drive Venza and averaged an impressive 26 and the big 17.7 gallon fuel allowed us to make the six- drive from our home in Los to my parents#8217; place in Phoenix stopping for gas. (If only offered an optional toilet, we have had to stop at all.)
