, Automotive Editor -

Although the Venza is shaped like something between a wagon and a crossover, it's built on the same platform as the bestselling Camry—for many potential buyers, this will be all they need to hear.

What's New for 2014

Power-folding outside mirrors have been added to XLE and Limited models. Limited models also gain front and rear parking sensors.

Choosing Your Toyota Venza

All-wheel drive is available as an option on all Venzas. Buyers of LE and XLE models can also choose between two engines:

  • The more efficient choice is the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 181 horsepower and is EPA-rated at 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models.
  • The more potent 3.5-liter V6 produces 268 horsepower and has fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with front-wheel drive. These numbers drop to 18 and 25 with all-wheel drive.

The 3.5-liter V6 is standard on all top-of-the-line Limited models.

Toyota equips the Venza at three trim levels:
