2014 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Venza than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Venza, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Toyota Venza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the Toyota Venza, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Traverse greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Toyota Venza, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.
