The 2013 Toyota Venza's enhanced exterior styling (Toyota's descriptive) includes a new upper and lower grille, fog lamps and taillights. With a new 19-inch wheel design and three new exterior colors (Attitude Black, Cypress Pearl and Cosmic Gray Mica), your neighbor with the '12 will probably wish he had waited. The 3-trim-level strategy (introduced last year) continues, albeit with updated option packages.
The 2012 Toyota Venza wagon is offered in three trims this year, a change from last year's single trim offering. LE and XLE trim levels will be offered with a choice of 4- or 6-cyinder engines, while the Limited is available only with the V6; all versions offer the choice of front drive or all-wheel drive (AWD).
Although it shares a common platform with the Camry sedan, the 2015 Toyota Venza wagon is more than just a Camry with a hatchback rear end. The Venza’s wide stance and added ground clearance give it the ability to go places no Camry would dare venture, as does the available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The Venza’s seats are wide and comfortable, and its tall ride height provides a commanding view of the road ahead. The Venza is larger than its primary competitor, the less expensive Subaru Outback, and it can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Toyota’s Venza is uniquely positioned as the perfect vehicle for travelers looking for the interior space and muscle provided by a larger SUV without the bulky proportions or harsh ride.
