2015 GMC Terrain vs. 2015 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Venza, with comparable head- and legroom. The GMC Terrain offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The GMC Terrain 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Terrain will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The GMC Terrain will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Terrain is much slimmer than the Toyota Venza, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The GMC Terrain is slightly shorter than the Toyota Venza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the GMC Terrain doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Toyota Venza. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Toyota Venza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Venza.
