2013 Toyota Venza

Pros: Styling, available AWD, smooth ride; comfortable seating, long list of standard features.

Cons: Pricey; 20-inch wheels hamper ride quality; uninspiring interior materials; so-so fuel economy.

What’s New
For 2013, the Venza gets a slight styling tweak and additional standard features. A touchscreen interface is now standard across all trim levels while the LE gets standard blind spot mirrors, the XLE gains driver memory functions, and the Limited gets LED running lights.
