2009 Toyota Venza

redefines the modern station so that it doesn#146;t have to it a station wagon.

During the Venza press presentation in Farmington, Pennsylvania, we listened to describe the recipe for the perfect station wagon: Take one of the most popular sedans#x2014;the natch#x2014;add more trunk for your junk, raise the a few inches, and leave everything where it is. The thing is, Toyota call the Venza a wagon.

for that matter, does it the Venza a crossover. the term other manufacturer calls its when it’s too chicken to them wagons. To describe the then, Toyota came up a yet-undiscovered wagon-avoidance term: car, optimized.#x201D;

Mix of Highlander and Camry

Eyes around the room. Isn#x2019;t car, optimized#x201D; the very of a wagon? Toyota#x2019;s feeling is the Venza is about 70-percent 30-percent SUV. but in contrast to crossovers and sport-utes, the Venza no promises of off-road dexterity. interestingly, the Venza offers the 8.1 inches of ground clearance as Toyota#x2019;s own Highlander.) It also offer a third-row-seat option, so speaking, what you have essentially is #x201C;a Camry,

But you wouldn#x2019;t know it by looking. by teams based in Newport California, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, the shares nary a body lighting element, or major component with the Camry or the vehicles with which it a platform. The Venza#x2019;s strong mug cat#x2019;s-eye headlamps and a grille more for a Freightliner than a car. The profile is a bit thick in the but the Venza#x2019;s arched fenders, D-pillars, standard 19-inch (20s on the V-6), and highly rear end convey presence and Crossover? Wagon? Whatever it is, it good in the metal.

Of Course, the Interior Is Clever

The generous exterior dimensions the interior with plenty of and even the preproduction vehicles we had the sort of assembly and materials we expect from Toyota. most Toyotas, the Venza come in one grade with option packages to suit whims, some that cool textured leather

Ergonomically and aesthetically, the Venza features many nice such as an optimal location for the dressy black carpeting to the gray or beige upholstery, and an gauge cluster. On the down the optional fake wood fake, and the dual-zone HVAC seem as if they were into the design at the last Sit-in height is the same as of the Camry, Toyota says, and slipping into and out of the Venza times, we surmise that and grandchildren alike should ingress and egress pretty

Now, no crossover/wagon/car-optimized thingy be launched without its own #x201C;gotcha#x201D; and the Venza has two. The sliding components#x2014;cup holders, armrest, etc.#x2014;make it a veritable Rubik#x2019;s of cabin storage. And of the two optional JBL sound systems, the top-shelf (bundled with the navigation is Bluetooth-equipped, allowing for music from compatible devices. The even has a dedicated music-device beneath the HVAC buttons.

In back, the huge rear fits three adults little problem, with legroom and comfortable 60/40-split seatbacks (although we couldn#x2019;t get to fold completely flat for purposes). If back-seat passengers are to you, we recommend the two-row, sunroof, which turns the relatively dark cabin a much brighter place.
