Expert Rating

4.4 (Excellent)
19 City / 26 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Toyota Venza OVERVIEW

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:

The audio system includes a 6.1-inch touch screen, six speakers, and a USB port. The Convenience Package adds a power liftgate and a rearview camera.
