The Toyota Venza rides and handles like a car, but offers the cargo space of an SUV. It’s more utilitarian than an ordinary car, yet it’s smaller and lower than an SUV. Venza comes with premium equipment and attributes normally associated with SUVs.
The Venza is built on the Camry platform, and made in the same plant in Georgetown, Kentucky. But the Venza is more than an upscale, contemporary rendition of a Camry station wagon. The Venza is more original than that, and more functional, loaded with a mix of highly evolved features and fresh design ideas. Venza compares most closely with the Honda Accord Crosstour.
It’s essentially a tall car, with a roomy, cleverly designed interior, that can handle the hauling tasks that make SUVs a popular choice. It’s a family car, a good daily runabout that’s easy to drive and park. And it’s highly useful, for moving people, pets and grocery-getting. We found it spacious and comfortable.
