If you enjoy the utility and versatility of an SUV while preferring the car-based platform of the crossover SUV, the Venza will provide a credible menu of platform and features, along with its own, si
A prospective customer might find Toyota's 2013 Venza falling into a middle ground, neither fish (an upright, practical SUV) nor fowl (the wished-for aggressive sports sedan or hatch).
In the time-honored tradition of offering a car-based platform powered by car-based drivetrains while suffering from SUV-induced weight, those opting to equip their 2013 Toyota Venza with Toyota's DOHC inline-4 will learn to be patient when merging onto a freeway. Check the V6 box and you'll immediately benefit from more horsepower, torque and refinement.

"Bought this car and soooooo disappointed!!! Drove a Venza home from dealer for overnight, liked it and traded a 2013 toyota highlander because of its terrible ride. Picked up new Venza, next day went out to shop and kept hearing the worst noise coming from the side-view mirror on the driver's side. We took it and placed painters tape in places we thought might help.... nothing helped. That is until I put a barrier of tape between the side view mirror and the door. By creating a barrier between the door and mirror it stopped the wind coming through the small opening. Toyota is building their cars out of plastic. Kept hearing a clicking noise each time I moved the power seat. Took it back to the dealer and told him about it. I was told, " that is the way it works." Got home and looked at the back of the seat and found the plastic cover on the rail unit was broken and catching as it moved.... PLASTIC cover! you gotta be kidding. Toyota needs to revamp the interior. When reaching for the AC fan control, hand hits gear shift column. So disappointed in Toyota quality. Will NEVER purchase a Toyota again!"
