This new and very Toyota has a place in the driveway for who find the Highlander too tall, the RX too expensive, and the Sienna too vanny. For a price of $26,000 you can order a that is not only difficult to but one that is difficult to evaluate. The is simple, this is a very crossover with a Lexus feel and yet it is noisy and ponderous.

this was not our favorite Toyota. The tires created a steady the very expensive luxury package was overly complicated and the seats did not fold flat and you had to remove the headrests to get them to at all.

The Venza feels big though it is the same size as a abeit lower, and is the same and about the same price as a In other words, it is high, and and weights nearly as much as the Interestingly, it also has a larger radius with the Venza a vast 39 ft. to turn, which it difficult in tight parking

You really need that rear view screen you buy the Venza due to the poor visibility to the and sides.

There are two engine choices, the being the 2.7-liter four-cylinder provides an ample 182 horsepower real world gas mileage 23 mpg. The 3.5-liter V6 makes 268 hp and you can about 21 mpg, but if you order the all drive model go with the engine. With the 17 plus tank you can easily go over 400 on the highway with either

Cargo space is 70 cubic while the Highlander gives you 95. we are tying to say is that the Highlander is car for the money, and you have the optional row of seating. However, the Venza is lower, and has a much better

We think it should appeal to who find the Camry to common and the boring. We don#8217;t think it is to be a big seller, but its looks appealed to a lot of and they may be enough to justify its

Mom#8217;s view: I did not like the visibility and the large turning This is not a car for city dwellers who have their own parking You sit high, but you can#8217;t see the Venza#8217;s end.

The GPS is not the best and we found it to use, and the stereo and the dual-zone controls require patience to The screen is easy to read, but the map are too small and the whole thing is complicated.

Driving the Venza, even the V6, is dull. The brakes are soft, the soft, and the acceleration is soft. The noise from the 20 inch is tiring.

Essentially, this is a station wagon and yet the Camry is more responsive. But the Venza ah, the interior. It is lovely. There is a console that provides for all of storage and the shifter is high and to reach. However, there much feel to.

You can easily five adults in comfort and the is loaded with standard The base model includes alloy wheels, auto dual-zone automatic climate tilt and telescoping steering power driver seat, rear seat, auto-dimming view mirror, universal opener, cruise control, computer and a stereo with CD and auxiliary audio input.

there is an abundance on options on the that are mostly grouped packages. I highly recommend the tailgate and rear view The HID headlamps are above average and the system may appeal to some its 13-speakers and Bluetooth and satellite

Those who want to stupefy children by having them at a movie while traveling can the rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

wise the Venza comes with four-wheel anti disc brakes, stability and control, front-seat side side curtain airbags, a knee airbag and front-seat head restraints.

The new Venza looks great, but it my cup of tea due to its ponderous driving feel and of crispness. If you are coming from a SUV you probably feel right at

Young working woman#8217;s An interesting vehicle and one with in its appearance and utility, the Venza, there is a lot that needs thought. For example, the optional inch screen for the flip-down DVD blocks the rear view The electric power steering disconnected and the Venza requires a large turning radius.

If you use the DVD player the signal can interfere the stereo radio volume. The rear seat needs padding and the air conditioning/heating ducts are so that the steering wheel the flow. The center console has the shifter mounted near the and this leaves lots of for cupholders, iPods.

There is a special compartment for MP3 players and the Despite all the room for storage, is no handy space for your as there was in the early model RX. that model remains the use of interior space of any vehicle we ever tested.

The noise the large side mirrors and tires creates a din at highway and the seats aren#8217;t that for me. I think larger people enjoy them more. The does not isolate you from the of the road although large are clearly felt.

Finally, the Venza, despite its does not have a third row of For that you need to go to the Highlander. The news is that space can be put to use for hauling practically anything side of a sofa/chesterfield,couch,davenport and it even backseat passengers to recline seats.

There are 70 cubic of storage in back and the floor is when the rear seats are down.

I would not buy the Venza for reasons. First, it has large spots and is not easy to park. the brakes and steering feel are too

Finally, it is attractive inside and but the pricing with the options I push the cost way past of a RAV 4, which holds more and similar fuel mileage.I think that the speedometer is too small.

Young working view: I just didn#8217;t the stereo system up to snuff. The for the air conditioning and heating could be simplified, and you really need to the rear headrests and make the optional rear seat is up or your limited rear vision is even more The wireless system works since I work making of the lowest priced American source computers and servers for I wonder why no computer input

The large tires look but they are going to cost a to replace and they are not quiet Here is my thumbnail about the stick with the basic engine, front wheel skip the options except the rear door closer and view camera and drive It is good looking, handy, and cause you to lose any points off of driver#8217;s license.

Dad#8217;s The Venza and the Saab are two of the few cars cater to pets. You can order a hatch pet ramp for easy and unloading, a leash tether for pets in the vehicle, a pet booster with harness, a first/second row or area pet barrier, pet seatbelt and rear seat zip line-style as well as waterproof and removable seat covers for this That says it all about the

A fine suburban commuter for and man#8217;s best friend. It challenge or offend you. of pretty, but certainly practical.

Towing limits are pounds for the four-cylinder and 1000 for the larger powerplant. In either the six-speed automatic transmission is

The major drawback to driving the is its handling. It is very vague and the use of tires does little to it cornering, but harshens the ride. The feel is adequate, but I would more action early on depressing the pedal.

No doubt is a great grocery getter and the sitting position, wide and easy entry and exit make it a natural for both with young children and folks. In other words, for usually not needing to push the limit. Other than this is a great car/wagon/crossover/SUV.

conference: The Venza draws a amount of attention and is price Thus it has the earmarks of another for Toyota. It does have the worst of which is the lack of and the noise from the engine, and side mirrors. By the way, we all the large size of those and were very willing to up the stereo a bit to cancel out the wind

The Venza may not be easy to classify, but for it is going to offer the best of fuel mileage, cargo and reliability. You might also the Subaru Forester, the Nissan and the Ford Edge. Or, Toyota#8217;s own
